Android phones come and go, but only one phone has survived for almost 4 years. Funny thing is, it wasn’t even designed to run Android (was meant to be a Windows Mobile device), yet it is one of the most supported devices of all times. It keeps getting the latest ROMs, sometimes before flagship smartphones! Yes, we are talking about the legendary HTC HD2 .
If you still have your hands on one, congrats… and you can now test Sense 5 on it! A new ROM brings a Sense 5 port to the HD2, courtesy of senior XDA developer gilbert32. It’s important to note that this ROM is nowhere close to being finished. You should only flash it if you want to play around with it and are sure of what you are doing.
Touchscreen, calls and data work, but every other component is pretty much out of the question. Non-working features include WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, GPS, sound, camera and more. So yeah… the ROM is pretty much just for those who want to check out what Sense 5 would look like in an HD2.
You can be sure the developer will keep working it all out, but you should always be careful. Remember rooting/flashing ROMs can void your warranty and/or brick your device. So be careful and do your research, or else you will be on your own if anything happens to your phone.
With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s show hands. Who here is still rocking an HTC HD2? Will you be testing this ROM?
