Earlier on today we posted an article about how HTC had said the new version of Sense would not work on older devices. They said it was due to hardware requirements, well XDA member capychimp has used the recent rom dump of the upcoming HTC Sensation and created a rom for the HTC Desire HD.
This rom is Android 2.3.3 based and has HTC Sense 3.0 in it, which makes me wonder whether or not HTC have been a little misleading with the truth. Do they just not want the hassle of updating all of those previous devices, such as the Desire HD, Desire Z, Desire S, Incredible S or Wildfire S to name but a few of the recent devices. As we know from the last few generations of devices HTC have always took a while to update their older devices and as time goes on I guess this is becoming more of a problem for them.
The current bug list is a little worrying, but no doubt these bugs will be ironed out in future releases. So if you really know what you are doing installing roms and you have an HTC Desire HD, then head over to XDA and get installing. I should add that it is entirely at your own risk.
