XDA Developers has come up with a ROM that updates the HTC Desire HD to ICS

As you already know, HTC had decided during testing that the performance of the HTC Desire HD on Ice Cream Sandwich was not good enough for its customers. But HTC Desire HD owners who still, ahem, desire the Android 4.0 update can thank the Brainiacs at XDA Developers. They have taken the Android 4.0.4 update meant for the HTC Incredible S and have reworked it into a ROM for the Desire HD. Both models have similar screen resolution, rock a single-core 1GHz processor and have 768MB of RAM.

The ROM includes Android 4.0.4 with HTC Sense 3.6 running on top. And the ROM even includes a kernel that will allow you to overclock your phone. The only question remaining is whether or not the "customer experience" is as bad as HTC says it is.

Regardless of what the Taiwan based manufacturer says, if you're interested in checking out Android 4.0.4 on your HTC Desire HD, click on the sourcelink.

Blackout ROM. I´m running it on my Inspire since 2 days ago and it´s great. There´s also a pure ICS (no sense) ROM called aospX that runs pretty well to. Those two are the best ROMS actually for the DHD/Inspire. F*** HTC and their "customer experience".

One of the first things to go is the stock launcher when i get a phone.
ALL of the stock phone launchers suck. I personally like go launcher.

I believe they just go for the non-bug ones. Which ROM are you talking about?

I used to feel bad for those waiting for ICS, but I just got my update on my Epic 4G Touch last night. Everything is running GREAT. I absolutely love it.
If you're waiting for ICS, just hold on. It's worth waiting for.
Apologies to the HTC Desire owners not getting it.
