Info:
I am proud to present you with Beanstalk ROM for the HTC Desire. This feature packed ROM is created and maintained by scott.hart.bti, and contains tons of customization from SlimROM and CyanogenMod. This is currently by far the most feature filled KitKat ROM available for the HTC Desire, so if you like customization, this is the one for you.

Features:
Basically everything that you could possibly want including...
- Navigation bar settings (colours, icons, layout, buttons)
- Pie with many options
- Status bar settings

- Notification drawer and Quick settings customization
- Active Display (the thing from the Moto X)
- Built in Screen Recorder

- WiFi improvements

GApps: Mediafire // AndroidFileHost
GApps 4.4.4 (RC6): Mediafire // AndroidFileHost
Instructions

Recommendations/Requirements:
- An hboot with at least 250mb on system. These include stock hboot or @jmcclue's 250/5/182 hboot.
- A 512mb - 1.5gb EXT partition (EXT4 recommended) on your sdcard. Use this guide, and this guide only to create the partition. Partitions made using other tools (CWM, Minitool Partition Wizard, etc.) will likely cause issues.
- The latest TWRP or 4EXT Recovery. Old versions of CWM may cause issues.
- A somewhat decently functioning brain (optional)

Installation Steps:
- Boot into recovery
- Full wipe *
- Flash ROM
- Flash GApps
- Reboot
- Setup m2sd using the instructions below
- Start Play Store to load setup for WiFi, Google account, etc.

* Full wipe includes system, data, cache, dalvik cache, .android_secure and sd-ext

Note: All keyboard languages except English have been removed in order to save space. (There are still many system languages though). If you want to use a language other than English on the keyboard, after completing the setup you can download and install the Google Keyboard which supports many languages.

Install Mounts2SD - Manual method:
- Install Mounts2SD app through the play store
- Open Mounts2SD > Menu > Application Settings > Install Startup Script
- Click the wrench icon in Mounts2SD. Under the Content header: enable Applications, Libraries and Dalvik Cache. It should look like this when you are done.
*Dont be confused by that fact that they seem to already seem to be checked. They are not. You must click on them so that the checkmark become green*
*Grey checkmark = disabled. Green checkmark = enabled*
- Reboot (might take a while)

OR

Install Mounts2SD - Easy method:
- Flash this zip
- Reboot (might take a while)

Optimized Settings and Tips:
Settings > Developer options > Enable Force GPU rendering
Settings > Beanstalk options > Beanstalk Init.d scripts > Clear cache
Settings > Beanstalk options > Beanstalk Init.d scripts > Enable speedy modified (This may cause graphical issues. If it is bothering you disable this option)
Settings > Beanstalk options > Beanstalk Init.d scripts > Enable loopy smoothness
Don't make app drawer background transparent (instead it should be opaque for best performance)/
Use Greenify to hibernate memory hungry apps that constantly run in the background.
Flash Fly-On Mod script (Dont flash on RC5 or higher)
Flash optimized dalvik libraries. (Not compatible with RC3 or higher)

Thanks to:
@scott.hart.bti - the founder and lead developer of the ROM
@LaidbackNikez and Evervolv - makers of the awesome qsd8k kernel that powers this ROM, as well as htc vendor files and bravo device tree
@spezi77 - modified the bravo device trees for CM compatibility which saved me a lot of time and helped me fix a few other things
@parkedraccoon - helped me fix a build error that wouldn't allow me to compile this ROM
@tommypacker - for testing and porting to the Nexus One (at the same time)

Thanks I might add a2sd later. For now i just wanted to release this quickly, and m2sd is a fast solution.

Been testing for a day, and I haven't had a single force close.

If you're going to leave this type of negative feedback, please at least post some logs or include more details on what caused your issues.
