| 2.1 build | Stock Hboot (No S-off required) | Stock-like | ext2/3/4 | Over the Air (OTA) updates | ROM Manager download |
Created due to popular demand; Presenting the Stablest Sense 2.1 experience on the Desire, with Unlimited memory provided by the best Data2SD script ever (ask the veterans at StarBurst/SuperNova sites who've used Sibere's Data2Sd) integrated in the Rom.

Sibere - Data2SD code
Many thanks also to o$$!ram for the source!
Partition Required: FAT32 followed by one ext2/ext3/ext4 partition (ext2/3 if present will be converted)
The main feature of this HTC Sense 2.1 Rom is the stable Data2SD that is built in
In case you didnt already know, the Desire's Internal memory is severely limited (A maximum of 147 MB. Within no time, you will be asked to remove your favoite apps to clear space. Earlier implementations like A2SD, App2SD+ are all imperfect, and everything will never be moved. Even MTD partitions are limited.
With Data2SD, you decide the amount of Internal memory you want!
As a side effect, you get faster I/O too, since Sd is faster than Nand. the real world performance depends on the Class of your card. The faster the better!
This rom is based on Sibere’s Data2sd scripts, which with the latest ext4 based script, is arguably one of the best of the lot. Other than this, the Rom has been kept stock-like. It is for those who want the HTC Sense Rom, but are tired of the low disk space warnings thrown at them!
Contrary to prior Data2SD scripts which were infamous for their boot loops and force closes, this latest script has been rigorously tested and developed into a stable product by Sibere. To date, I havent had a single force close or boot loop yet on this Data2SD configuration
I know there are a lot of Stock rooted roms out there, but this one supports Data2Sd best, mostly because it’s been built for the sole purpose of giving a problem free Data2sd experience.
