I’ve previously written about using an alternative ROM on my HTC Desire thanks to AceSMod007, but things have moved on a fair bit since then. I’ve finally got round to updating my Desire again, and decided I’d go with another “007 Mod”, specifically RunnymedeMod007 which features Sense 3.5. I’ve actually been running release 7 for a few weeks, but it has been a mixed experience. Having updated to release 21 a couple of days ago I’m now much happier. If you have a Desire and want the latest eye candy without compromising on performance I highly recommend giving it a try. Happy modding.
