HTC HD2 Unofficially Gets Android Ice Cream Sandwich

This beast just won’t die! The HTC HD2 has proven that, despite being a real dinosaur, can easily run anything that’s thrown at it, from Windows Mobile to Windows Phone, from Linux to Android and now Google’s latest mobile platform: Ice Cream Sandwich.

While many other legacy phones didn’t get unofficial ICS ROMs — and who know when they’ll get official ones — HTC’s 2009 flagship, the first with a capacitive screen, already has one thanks to the community. It is a port from Nexus One’s AOSP ICS ROM and, as you’d expect from these early custom ROMs, not everything’s perfect.

You’ll have problems with USB Mass Storage, the Camera, hardware acceleration and the headphone jack but if you are a techy and always like to switch platforms, you’ll probably find this hard to resist. Chances are you’re already running Android on your HD2 so head over to the source link and read through the thread before jumping in.
