NEW!! OFFICIAL HTC GINGERBREAD UPDATE
Yea, the Stable Official Rom with Unlimited Memory that you've been waiting for!
(Sense | Android 2.3.3 (GingerBread) | DATA2SD | CRT TV Off Animation | Trackpad Awake | Seamless migration from Froyo and any other Roms without Data loss)
Official GB 2.3.3 v3.14.405.1 (Stock Sense 1.9) | Stock rooted Desire GSM Rom | ext 4 | Bravo Stock Hboot
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS AND DOWNLOAD LINKS ARE ON MY SITE:
Download Links: Supernova Site
NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PORT OF ANOTHER DEVICE.
While this means that this does not have Sense 2 or 3, this also means that this is based on the Official HTC RUU built for the Htc Desire. So you can expect everything to work perfectly. The difference is that while htc designed the desire to have 147 mb of internal memory, we have redesigned it to have any amount of internal memory!!
No need to meddle with Hboots, use stock Hboot
no need to adjust with incomplete implementations like app2sd or a2sd+. Use 100% of your ext partition!
Install hundreds (or thousands if you prefer) of apps. No need to uninstall anything any more!

Donations encourage devs to spend more time on their Roms. It's not because we need the money, but because we feel that our work is so useful to someone else that they felt a need to Donate. If you feel like Donating, use the Thanks button. Alternately, you can also express your affection for the Rom by writing a post or blog about it.
A big thanks to these people for the generous Donations received, and the various past and present users of StarBurst, GingerBurst and SuperNova Roms for their great support and continuous encouragement. Thanks a lot, Guys!
Rom Making is not a business for me and neither should it be for any other person on XDA who calls himself a developer. If you have the audacity to beg for money, you ought to be somewhere else!
Note: Due to some weird Voodoo blackmagic, the Thanks Button on this post is missing. Use the buttons from the next post!!
