Announcing Sailfish for the HTC Desire HD
What is Sailfish?
This is not Android!
This should be thought of as a development experiment. It may be useful if you are a developer and want to write/port apps the the Sailfish operating system. It is not an end-user product, however, if you wish to experiment and try something different then feel free!
Please do not contact Jolla Care or Jolla Developer Care, as this is not the Jolla phone
To Mustaavalkosta for the CM11 kernel and answering my queries via Google Hangouts!

Make sure you have an up-to-date recovery. I used 4ext touch. Philz recovery doesnt have the required tar command.
For version < pgz11 Install the latest CM10.1 and make sure it works
For pgz11 onwards Install CM 12.1 nightly 20120131 from http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...tlies-t3070621
Copy the .zip to the SDCard and install it. The installation script take a little time.
On first run you are presented with a language selection, after this time you should be presented with the first-run wizard. Complete as much as possible, but dont try and create a Jolla account as there wont be a network connection (unless you have inserted a sim and by chance it works, I havnt tested that). To get out of the wizard, scroll down because the 'skip' link is off the bottom of the screen.
Several major graphical bugs, such as the keyboard struggling to show and corruption in the windows of minimized apps. This is probably down the the kernel hack I made to get apps to load. (no longer true as of pgz11)
Cellular network is pretty unusable. No audio input! (fixed in pgz13)
Proximity sensor is not working and blanks the screen (note, progress has been made on this)
Mobile data is not working (being worked on) (fixed in pgz13)
