JellyBean for HTC desire

I have tried jelly been ROM for my HTC Desire from the following URL
CM10 based Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for HTC Desire

Everything works great except SD card mounting problem
After installing the ROM, SD card is not mounting, even i have trying multiple things like reinstalling, partitian, etc.
But nothing worked out.
Even i have tried fixing fastboot command also. But did not worked.

Later i decided to install JellyTime from google code repo
Seems like this room specific to HTC desire HD.
Because when i flash this, it says "assertion error".
And i can see some code they are checking for device model as "ace".
So this one failed to install in my HTC Desire.

I have tried this MIUI ROM with Jelly bean

Not working with HTC desire, not able to install 

Trying for another ROM soon probably MIUI ICS room

Can't mount SD Card in HTC Desire , Android - USB Brick

I been trying multiple ROMs available for my HTC Desire.
But yesterday suddenly when i  boot by phone in recovery mode to install new ROM, it is not able to mount the sdcard.
It keep on says "Can't mount /sdcard".
I have tried by clearing "dalvik cash".
But did not worked out. When i connect to my PC , my phone is not detected at all.

After some hours of google i figured out that my phone is in "USB Brick" state.
I have tried multiple things to fix this. At last i got it fixed by simple 4 steps.

 Bring your phone in HBoot (Hard Boot) mode, by pressing power button and volume down key.
  If your device not detected by windows use this step, otherwise skip it
  Download latest android USB driver
  1) Goto Device manager
   2) Search for your android in "other devices" category
  3) Right click on that, and select "Update Driver"
  4) Point to the folder which you downloaded from the above link
  5) And update it, now you will see your phone in the device manager list
  Download Android SDK tools for windows or Mac.
  Goto its "Tools" folder from the command prompt  

    Now , in your phone from HBOOT mode, switch to "Fastboot" mode, by selecting the menu from the HBOOT list.
  Once you are in the "Fast boot" mode, now execute the command from windows command prompt "fastboot oem enableqxdm 0" 
  And restart your phone.

Device Details:
HTC Desire, rooted, S-Off, 4 gig SD card
