Much has been said about MIUI. This popular custom ROM has already received so many good reviews from users. One of the qualities that set this ROM apart from the others is its user interface….
Are you a user of HTC Desire HD? There’s great news for you as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is now available to you through the Blackout ICS XL custom ROM, which will bring Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 3.6 to your HTC Desire HD.
According to XDA Developers member QD2DC, who developed the ROM, the Blackout ICS XL custom ROM is based on Sensation XL 2.12, so no resizing is needed.
The custom ROM is still in alpha development, so expect bugs, bugs, and bugs. Though, we’re happy to note that the following (according to the developer) are working: 2G/3G/HSDPA data, proximity sensor, phone calls, audio (but without Beats Audio), SMS/MMS, accelerometer, GPS, microphone, video playback, capacitive buttons and backlights, and touchscreen.
The following are still being worked on, and are not yet working: USB mounting, GPU acceleration, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, camera, and some others.

Congratulations! You’ve succeeded in upgrading your HTC Desire HD to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 3.6 via the Blackout ICS XL custom ROM.
