Send In the Droids… HD2 Gets a Taste of Sensation
It seems like it was just yesterday when the dump for the HTC Sensation was posted in our boards (in fact, it was 2 days ago, but who keeps track of these things?) Just yesterday, the first booting port appeared in the Desire HD section. Devs all around XDA are scrambling to get functional ports in each respective section. The next successful port of this Rom is has been accomplished in the HD2 section. XDA member imilka has a working Rom for this great device. Needless to say, there are many non-functional features such as the fact that the camera is broken (go figure). However, unlike the Desire HD, this one seems to have a lot more going for it, like the fact that all radios seem to be functional and EGL graphics, while a bit buggy, are working.
If you have an HD2 and would like to take this for a spin, make sure that you leave some feedback.
- It boots
- EGL acceleration (however, still buggy)
- Radio ( Calls, SMS )
- Mobile data
- Wi-Fi Tethering (should)
- GPS (should)
- Bluetooth A2DP music playback & calls
You can find more information in the port thread.

On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....
