Hi,

My friend has a HTC Desire HD with sense 2.1. I was wondering if there was a way of getting the 2.1 camera app onto the HTC Desire? Is it possible to? Is there already a way which i havent found? Also im using the 2.2 Stock ROM with the sense UI.

Thanks In Advance

You could just switch to a Desire HD ROM. Plenty of them in the development section.

Don't know if there's a way of porting just the camera app.

I know but the thing is i dont want to risk ruining my phone totally by rooting it and etc. Since if i tried i probably would mess it all up. But i may consider trying it maybe then.

Rooting your phone is daunting at first but trust me its a lot easier than you think. Plus its the only way you would be able to make the changes you want. Check out this link, its very helpful for new members

It all looks very complicated, but i think i should be able to follow it! When you root the phone do you still get like all the normal android stuff? Market and etc? I know thats probably a stupid question but i really know nothing about rooting phones. Also do you get the like HTC Apps, Eg "Facebook For HTC Sense" and etc?

Rooting your phone doesn't change anything other than giving you access to the root directory in your handset, which is required in order to flash a custom rom. Then its up to you to choose a rom that suits your needs. Have a browse of the roms that are available. make sure you choose a sense based rom if you're looking for sense apps. I personally prefer aosp roms as they're based on the pure android releases and I find the sense roms to be a bit laggy. Currently using cyanogenmod 7.1 and its awesome, fast and stable! Keep in mind that facebook, gmail etc are still available on the aosp roms, you don't need sense for those

Ive managed to successfully route my phone and added a custom ROM to. I added the CoolSense one . However now i have Hardly any memory on my memory card now :/. I only have 500MB free. And thats without my pictures, apps and etc :/. If i were to get a new SD card. How would i go about getting all the ROMs and that to the new SD card. Or would i have to do it all over again?

LeeDroid HD is a direct port from Desire HD to Desire. If you flash this rom, your phone will have all the software features of Desire HD, including the camera app.
Just remember that Desire HD has 8MP camera and more RAM, so it will always capture better pics and function more smoothly.
