Once again, the developer of the custom ROM community with a swashbuckling project impress: for the abundant elderly HTC HD2, which originally 2009 came with Windows Mobile 6.5 on the market, a firmware has been released based 6.0 Marshmallow on Android. Despite the anything but dewy hardware running the new OS version on HTC HD2 surprisingly liquid.
Some smartphones refuse vehemently against their retirement: the HTC HD2 has now been 6 years under his belt and will still receive due to the many options in terms of the software community alive. After the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow was in fact only a matter of time until a resourceful developer attempt on a port – now a custom CD-ROM has been published actually based on the latest Android version.
It is an unofficial version of Cyanogenmod 13, published in the XDA developers Forum. The firmware is not suitable for everyday use however by far still because the telephony does not work and also the transfer of data via USB is not possible. Apart from the missing features, but the Rome makes a surprisingly good impression: the HD2 is equipped 1 GHz processor and lean 576 MB only with a RAM, but in terms of performance there up on the occasional pause for thought to complain about much. Quite possible that in the near future with more updates an everyday Marshmallow-ROM on the legs can be adjusted. Currently it looks anyway, not that the HTC HD2 moves permanently to the pension.
