Hardware Acceleration fixed for HD2 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM



Here’s a little status update on the progress of the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM project for the HTC HD2. Apparently, the device has taken a major leap ahead of other devices with hardware acceleration fix. Even more exciting, Ankuch and michie from XDA have proclaimed that the ROM is even faster than Gingerbread could have ever dreamed of being. Almost everything works in the ROM — other than USB Mass Storage and the camera, which I’m certain will get their fixes soon. Here’s what michie had to say:

I compiled a mix between ankuch’s SD build and Tytung’s NAND build, all credits go to them!
I only created this thread because Tytungs thread became messy and my post with the rom will get lost after many replies.
I will update this rom till HW Acc is in his final stage and tytung will release an update inclusing the HW Acc an his new kernel as he he is working on a new kernel with loads of improvements.
Also the nexys build seems to have fixed usb mass storage, you can prob expect this in tytungs new update too.
for Mag and CLK
– Rom is VERY fast, even faster than most gingerbread roms here.

And the progress just keeps on rolling, eh, boys and girls? If you own a HTC HD2 and you’re ready to get ICS-ified, make sure to stop by the ROM thread on XDA.
