PACman ROM Ported to HTC Desire S and Desire HD

We’ve recently posted a number of articles about a hybrid ROM known as PACman ROM. Originating on the Xperia Ray, it was later ported to the Samsung Galaxy Ace and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro. PACrom is now making it’s way across a number of other devices on XDA.

PACman merges some of the best features from Paranoid Android, AOKP, and CyanogenMod into one uber-featured ROM. The latest devices to receive a PACman port are the HTC Desire S and the old favorite, the HTC Desire HD, both thanks to XDA Senior member blindndumb.

The Desire S ROM should be considered a test ROM, with a number of known bugs at present, including problems with the front camera, speakerphone, and WiFi Hotspot.

The Desire HD ROM on the other hand is a little more functionally complete, with no known bugs.

If you own either of these devices and want a taste of a bit of everything all at once, this ROM might be the one for you.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
