ROM REVIEW: ► kwbr HD2 ROM Final 6th Series :: WM6.5.3 (23152) :: Sense 2.5 ◄

Is this the last ROM we are going to see from Kwbr? Or is there a plan to start a new series? Not to wonder more; Kwbr new final HD2 ROM release updates WM OS build to (23152). Updated time zone auto fix. “Others” link at “Settings” page lists a wide range of shortcuts and menus to choose from. Still Kwbr ROMs lacks multi-language support and if we will compare between Kwbr last ROM release and this new release there will be no much changes to be noticed. Kwbr ROMs provides one of the fastest and lightest ROMs available for HTC HD2.

On my Hd2 all sounds besides "alarms" do not work. They don't play and I can't make them phone ringtone.
