0HTC Desire Android LogoAlternative ROM for HTC Desire

For the last 9 months or so I’ve been experiement­ing with altern­at­ive android ROMs for my HTC Desire.  Whilst there is noth­ing par­tic­u­larly wrong with the offi­cial HTC ROM, they are often slow to release new ver­sions of Android or Sense for older phones like the Desire.  I was keen to have some of the Sense 3 fea­tures, along with the sense web­site access to my phone.

I’ve tried vari­ous ROMs, included RCMix, Insert­Coin, Evol­u­tion­ary Sense, Crys­tal King­dom, and AceS­MOD.  All of them have worked, and provided sim­il­ar fea­tures.  How­ever, after much exper­i­ment­a­tion I’ve settled on AceS­Mod which I can highly recom­mend.  I’ve been run­ning ver­sion 33 for nearly 2 months, and was using an earli­er ver­sion for a month or so before that.  In that time, the ROM has proven to be at least as stable and reli­able as any oth­er, includ­ing the offi­cial HTC ROM.  I’ve had no issues with call qual­ity or any oth­er sig­nals (wire­less, 3G, GPS).  Bat­tery life has been amongst the best, if not the best, that I’ve ever had.  All the fea­tures are there, and there are still reg­u­lar updates (the most recent release is v40), to which I will be upgrad­ing soon.  There are also vari­ous nice addons, includ­ing a bat­tery icon mod.
