Disclaimer: Installing Jelly Bean on HTC Desire through CM10 can be risky as it is just another ROM port like the custom ROM. You must therefore be careful while taking it up. We recommend that people who are not much confident or those who are not much technically clear with Android concepts should keep away from such procedures. If at all you wish to upgrade HTC Desire with Jelly Bean unofficially, do it at your risk. There is risk of phone bricking, data being lost and warranty loss.


It is important to take complete back up of the phone first. This can save from any sort of data loss.

Install ClockworkMod Recovery before you install this ROM.

Keep your handset charged to the extent of 70 percent at least.
