It looks like what HTC said about Sense 3.0 not being able to work on their older Android phones isn’t true after all – it’s either a ploy by HTC to get you to buy their newer phones, or the company just doesn’t want to bother developing Sense for their older models anymore. Well the folks over at XDA-developers managed to get their hands on the HTC Sensation/Pyramid ROM dump and turned it into a custom ROM that works on the Desire HD. It’s in alpha stages at this point, which means it’s buggy (about 60-70% not working properly) but it sports the new sexy looking Sense 3.0 UI and let’s not forget that it’s Gingerbread (Android 2.3) for the phone. As usual, give it a few weeks before you get a completely working and stable ROM, but for those of you who want can’t wait for it you can find out how to get the ROM here.
