About OpenDesire
OpenDesire was made with made purely for the HTC Desire and is compiled from a variety of public repositories, OpenDesire is NOT a port of any HTC ROM, it is compiled from source purely with the exception of the Google Apps for which the source code is not publicised.

OpenDesire was built with stability and reliability in mind and therefore does not contain any additional applications. Since version 3.x some community maintained repositories from CyanogenMod have been included in the release.

Changelog
3.6.1 patch
removed chrome2phone
updated proprietary libs

3.6.0
Updated apps/framework/kernel

Removed Facebook/Twitter (both can be downloaded from the market)

Reverted OC to 1305mhz (most phones can handle this and I would rather concentrate on making the rom more stable than just trying for performance gains)

(NOTE: for those that tried the pre-release that was available, I listened to everyones comments and removed all additions, OD is back to stock and 100% source compiled and will remain this way.)

(NOTE 2: OpenDesire/DeFroST use the CyanogenMod community framework base. OD/DF/CM roms are all individual and are completely different, OD is a minimalist ROM and as close to a stock bare base as possible.)

To save everyone from another lame flame war I'm not listing fixes/updates for 3.6 due to claims of ownership, Android is licensed under the Apache license and is opensource and nobody owns anything in my opinion, below is a quote from the Apache License wikipedia page, interpret it however you wish.

"Like any free software license, the Apache License allows the user of the software the freedom to use the software for any purpose, to distribute it, to modify it, and to distribute modified versions of the software, under the terms of the license."

Very nice work. I do still have white noise on the receiving end though, no echo as far as I can tell. Any way you can dial down the mic's gain?
