HTC, known to the masses for bringing us Android phones like the Desire and Nexus One, has just officially announced the release of the HTC Desire HD and the Desire Z. In particular, the Taiwanese…
We’ve already seen Miui v4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) ported over to the Google Nexus One, so it’s no surprise that it has not made it’s way over to it’s brother device the HTC Desire. The Google Nexus One and HTC Desire are identical in specs, and the Nexus One is a HTC device.
Miui v4 is a fully working ROM, but it is still in beta so remember there may be some bugs, feel free to report them to Miui and not Android Authority since we are not the developers of this ROM.
Disclaimer: Android Authority is not responsible for any damage to your device while flashing this ROM.
