The old HTC Desire Z has just received an unofficial CyanogenMod 10 port courtesy of the folks over at XDA Developers.
The smartphone was launched on the market in November 2010 with Android 2.2 Froyo onboard. However, the Desire Z got a Gingerbread upgrade
, which will also be the last major update the device will get.
Still, it looks like XDA forum user Flinny and the Andromadus dev team managed to put together a CyanogenMod 10 ROM for HTC Desire Z. Keep in mind that this is a work in progress, so expect some issues to be present, such as:
- Wake issue (Kernel);
- Video playback glitches (mainly in landscape, turn off HW overlay in developer settings as a work around for now);
- Video camera (doesn’t work at all yet);
- Wi-Fi tethering;
- Glitches on panorama camera (overlay again same work around);
- Improved io, integer and float handling (Kernel).
