    I don't think it's a good idea to have ICS on the HTC Desire HD.

    From the HTC blog:

    Yeah, I get that their version may be too big for the phone, but most (if not all) custom ROM's are a hell of a lot smaller...

    I'm not really a Sense fan, but am gonna check this out :)

    Who cares what HTC think - This is for rooted phones anyway.

    HTC have a vested interest in creating negative vibes around ICS for the HD. The truth is as D-U-R-X has stated these custom roms are lighter so don't need the system resources that a full HTC version of ICS would take.

    I'll give this a try.

    I ran this rom for a while yesterday and all seemed to work ok. Found it to be very responsive and quick. First attempt to install it came with a stuck boot screen, 2nd attempt worked fine after not restarting (thanks for Ral's tip)when asked but restart via 4EXT.

    That's what happened to me also. Working a treat now.

    As for HTC supplying ICS, it has nothing to do with the fact that their ICS is too "big", too "small" or the wrong colour. Their issue is that installing it would mean wiping customer's data and no matter how they tried to communicate this fact to their customers they would have very many who would then complain that HTC had deleted the only copy of their last 5 years of contacts .... :( This customer service issue is the reason we are not getting ICS, there is NO technical reason.

    Now, as "geeks" we can argue all we like about how HTC should make it available anyway but, in truth, it's just because us "geeks" want it. We don't "need" ICS, out phones work just fine without ICS, it's just that we "want" it. As a percentage of HTCs customer base we are way too small for them to put the time and effort into creating something just for us.

    So, live with it and go load a custom ROM. Works for me ....

    Well I've installed it. Spent a bit of time tweaking and downloading the apps I need.
    Running Apex launcher to get rid of the 'Sense' theme all seems good. Have a couple of issues:
    - Swype Keyboard doesn't work
    - Messaging App crashes when resizing pics for MMS
    - Facebook not pulling through profile pics
    - Battery drain seems a little high (maybe due to the tweaking this savo)

    I'm using the Nova launcher but may try Apex if I can be bothered to change again. Battery seems fine with me, using UltrasmoothRosie, max. CPU = 1.49760GHz and smartassV2 governor.

    Thread moved to the All Things Root section, as it is related to a custom ROM.
