Android Jelly Bean ROM for Venerable HTC HD2

Don't underestimate the HTC HD2 because of the phone is a couple of years old, the age doesn't mean it can't run the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Because recently an XDA forum member, smokin901 released a Jelly Bean port for HTC HD2.

The main reason of the release is simply showing to the world that HD2 is still beastly enough to run the Android latest version, therefore it's not necessarily for people to use daily.

But since the port was on XDA, it will probably end up being developed by other members and hopefully we will be seeing the more stable version sometime in the near future.
