…and when we say "borrow", we’re being generous. As it turns out, the HTC Titan over at XDA has been getting some custom-ROM-love and a new one called 'WPV 8779 Nokia Edition v3' has certainly raised the bar.
The ROM of course requires a full-unlock, something that was achieved a few months ago for those who want to go through the somewhat arduous process. But what makes this ROM interesting is the inclusion of some of Nokia’s platform exclusive apps made to work with the Titan. Such apps include Camera Extras, Counter and Contact Share. That is a fairly nice start even if Nokia would frown upon such practices.
Other additions include a built in XAP deployer for 3rd party marketplaces and some “WP 8 tiles” for some added effect. Full feature list:
- Full Unlock v3.
- Windows Mobile Device Center.
- XAP deployer.
- Nokia Camera Extras, Contact Share, Counter...
- Some WP8 tiles.
- Nokia Ringtones.
- Search key settings.
Overall it’s not too shabby and we may just have to take the time to go load this on our international Titan to see what all the hub-bub is about. If this ROM is of interest, head over to XDA forums for more information. Thanks, rockstarzzz and Linh H., for the link!
