HTC Desire HD ROM Ported to DROID Incredible, Quick Boot In Action

The HTC Desire HD which was announced by HTC last week, runs a new version of Sense that has some sort of quick booting process allowing the phone to basically boot back up in under 5 seconds after powering down.  It’s pretty remarkable actually and as of this week, you can enjoy that speed on your Droid Incredible plus some additional devices.  That’s right, someone has already pulled the ROM from the Desire HD and ported it to a variety of handsets.  There are a few bugs in it which will surely be ironed out over the next few days, but you should give it a try right now to at least see quick boot in action.  Or just watch our video below!
