Nexus One “Too Old” for ICS? Get Real! AOSP-Based Builds Arrive for Various Devices!

IceCreamSandwich

Google’s Mobile Product Manager Hugo Barra recently stated that the company had no plans to update the Nexus One to Ice Cream Sandwich, citing that the handset was simply too old to run the newer operating system. Many users felt unnecessarily abandoned, believing that a former flagship device under 2 years old could hardly be considered “too old” for updates. Having used a Nexus One as my primary device for eight months, the news made my heart sink ever so slightly.

Ironically enough, the first ICS SDK-port for the Nexus One actually had already appeared four days earlier. However, as is the case with the majority of SDK-ports, the lack of hardware acceleration made things dreadfully sl. . . READ ON »

Based on XDA Recognized Developer capychimp´s work, XDA member proxuser presents the first Runnymede Sense 3.5 Android 2.3.5 ROM for the HTC Desire S.

Not too long ago, we covered the glorious effects of combining Android love with XDAddiction. That hardware modification was both glorious and extremely classy. However, what is one to do if (s)he prefers glossier finishes? After stripping paint and polishing metal, XDA forum member mynthix has found out!

Though the Chrome Desire HD has garnered a much more polarized response than the previously linked HD2 mod, this has sparked others in the the thread to follow suit and share images of their customized creations! One such forum member, xTremePower, shared his polishing technique:
