Default 27/May r3.1 - MoDaCo Custom ROM for HTC Desire with Online Kitchen


I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the HTC Desire! READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know.

Remember that if you use this ROM, you do so entirely at your own risk!!

About MoDaCo Custom ROMs

MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs - either shipping or leaked. A MCR release is designed to feel as far as possible like a stock ROM, with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device.

Requirements

In order to use this ROM on your device, you must be rooted and be able to launch the custom recovery image using the supplied scripts in the root package. You can read more about how to root and launch the CRI on your device in this topic.

Features
  • Based on the 1.21.xxx.x ROM series
  • Pre-rooted with su and Superuser Permissions 2.0.3 by ChainsDD

side question to this rom, probably easy to answer:

Is there a way to apply the nexus bootscreen, nexus Lockscreen and standard android dialer to apply to this mod?

or is the dialer included in the standard contacts app?
