ICS AOSP Hits The HD2

It looks like the giant refuses to go down because of time. The quasi-immortal HTC Leo aka HD2 seems to still be holding its own regardless of the time that is being added onto its aluminum back cover. Every single OS since the introduction of the device to our forums a couple of years ago, has been able to boot and be usable thanks to the incredible efforts and countless hours being poured onto it by our devs. This time, XDA Recognized Developer tytung has taken the time to look into the brand new source for Ice Cream Sandwich and decided to try and get it to fit into the HD2. To make a long story short, the device is up and running with a fresh copy of Android 4.0 on it. The device has most core functionality up and running from the start, including 3G, Wifi, touchscreen, BT, GPS, calling and audio (let’s face it, it is a phone after all), and most sensors. However, as it is customary with initial ports, there are non functional parts such as the hardware acceleration, USB mass storage, and of course… the camera.

Fixing these will just be a matter of time, so if you are not desperate to snap pictures with your HD2, we strongly recommend that you take this for a spin and that you report any and all bugs back to the dev. Happy flashing!

NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich is a port from Nexus One’s AOSP ICS ROM (thanks texasice for compiling it).
