htc-desire-hd-hands-on-20

Ever imagined that you will be running Android 4.4.2 KitKat on your Old Phones? With a great appreciation to developers at XDA, Android 4.4.2 reaches old phones of HTC (and also many other brands but currently not discussing them) via Custom Roms. The old devices of HTC include HTC Desire, HTC Desire HD, HTC Indredible S, and so on….

Credit should also be given to Android because they have released KitKat 4.4.2 as an OS which is optimized for devices having greater than 500Mb Ram which means thousands of  old devices can receive the Android KitKat 4.4.2 through  Custom Roms. You may want to check your device at XDA whether it has received the 4.4.2 Android update. However, for the above devices of HTC, written in bold, I will put the direct link of there Custom Roms of Android 4.4.2 KitKat as follows:
