Doesnt the phone has similar hardware just like the desire Hd or desire S, does it?
I think it would be kinda easier for them to port the rom from a snapdragon-based rom, would give a lot of benefits for the devs.
At least this is what I think about it, maybe there are some differences like the modem and some other minor stuff, but there is surely a way to fix it
But just one question, why are you, the devs are trying to get cm7 to the phone, if there are already sources from cm9 availible ?
