You can check out the full changelog and download the ROM here!
Hello AndroidCentral Community. I am Gr8gorilla and have been working creating custom kernels for MT4G as well as my Desire HD Rom Port. At this time the Deisre HD rom is fully working with a few nice little additions.
You get to keep you Front Facing camera and use the original Desire HD camer with a small modification to support the FFC.
You get to keep you genius features with modified Rosie Launcher and your "Hard" Genius button is remapped to search. (Long Press for voice search).
You also get to keep you Swype as well as a few new keyboard options!
This Rom includes my OverClock Kernel. With this kernel you should see improved battery life or at least no degradation as the it is slightly undervolted. For those that don't want to overclock the kernel is set to 806 mhz on boot, which is actually slight underclocking. This kernel also contains a lag fix for Emulators.
There is a Gorilla Button, created by True_Blue Drew, over at XDA. It is available on my site with my ROM. You can come by my site and browse around, download my work and try out the New Sense on you MT4G!
For those that are wondering, www.htcsense.com does work with this rom. The site is a little buggy and isn't perfect but sign up and give it some time.

Quick question. In the themes and add-ons section of your site I see a zip to fix genius button issues. Is that required or is there a way to tell if we need it or not?
And did I read correctly that the latest version of the ROM includes the build.prop fix for protected apps?

Hmmm...my phone won't boot past the myTouch 4G splash screen. I wiped data/factory reset, cache, and dalvik cache before I flashed.
EDIT: This was not a fault of the ROM or my phone. It was a bad download that has been fixed. I'm now up and running and liking the ROM a lot so far. I will post more impressions later in the day when I've had it running for a little while longer.
My latest release, 2.2.4 has the build.prop fix, the fix for the genius button, my latest kernel, tun.ko module, maybe other stuff that I forgot.
This ROM is different from Iced Glacier because this ROM is HTC's New Sense, Iced Glacier is based off of My Sense, the differences are numerous.

I got it up and running now. Going through initial setup. (the part I hate the most ) Brings back memories of my EVO.
When I try to enable wifi calling it says I'm not registered with the network and asks if I would like to register. I click yes and it doesn't do anything. I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong. Can you point me in the right direction please?

I just connected to my work wifi and turned mine on to check it, it is working.
So make sure you are connected to the tmobile network in some way when you turn it on.
About the icon packs, where do they come from? Do they modify the frame-work in any way? If they replace the framwrok-res.apk you will lose your apns. Also if it is not the framwork-res.apk from the Desire HD it will break stuff. Otherwise I recommend a nandroid and then try it. If it doesn't work, you can fix it pretty easy.

I'll try the icon pack tonight.
I verified that I'm connected to t-mo (it even told me I am) and the wifi calling app still says I'm not registered. It works on the other rom I had, so idk what gives. it's not a deal breaker (i have good service), but the battery life boost is awesome from having it.

So I think the wifi calling issue has something to do with the wifi at work. Although I'm not sure what coulda changed because neither one of us changed any settings. I can connect at home just fine, but when I'm at work it gives me an error message.
Just wanted to let you guys know. And sorry but I didn't get a chance to try the icon pack yet.

I'm liking this rom the more I use it. Wifi calling now works at work. I'm not sure what the problem was. Something with the wifi, not the rom. Now to start looking for adw ex themes.
Still need to try htcsense.com with adw, though.
