Well, this is pretty exciting. Two ROM developers by the names of Maja and udK over at (where else?) XDA-Devs have ported FroYo to the Desire, and enabled 720p video recording – pretty neat stuff. The ROM (v1.0) isn’t quite ready for mass consumption yet – it’s still in testing (v0.3 is available for now, though). Still, it’s definitely something to look forward to, and we’ll be sure to update everyone once the FroYo/720p ROM is released.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the fact that our phones are great to begin with, and that ROM devs continue to unlock more goodies for them, is just too cool.

    It's not a port, it's a leaked HTC rom. They are working to remove the watermarks and such.

    And what about the N1? Pretty disappointing if N1 is invited to the party.

      Huh?

      Why should the N1 be invited? This is a "official" leaked 2.2 ROM specifially for the HTC Desire.
      After the ROM is stable and has been released one can think about a N1 port. But the HTC phone is - of course - the first phone to get HTC Sense + FroYo.
