First Custom Skin Surfaces for HTC Sense 4 Devices
Posted September 12, 2012 at 07:30 pm by Haroon Q. Raja
Do you have an HTC device running Sense 4 and find yourself unhappy with the range of themes supplied by HTC? Want to install a custom skin on your device while sticking with Sense 4, without having to switch to a different launcher? There is now an option thanks to the first custom skin for Sense 4 devices.
Since Sense 3.0, HTC started using its proprietary theming format. It wasn’t long before XDA Recognized Developers Flemmard and Diamondback found a way to crack open the custom files storing the resources, opening Sense 3 up for theming. HTC changed the format again with Sense 3.5, but the same guys again succeeded in finding the new image format, making custom skins possible. With Sense 4, they have done it again, and XDA Senior Member cypis has built upon their efforts to bring us Virtuous Immersion as the first custom skin for HTC Sense 4 devices.
Virtuous Immersion themes the Sense Launcher, Sense apps, and Sense lockscreen; and it should work for all devices running full Sense 4 in form of a stock or Sense-based custom ROM. While it doesn’t currently work for devices with lite version of Sense 4, the developers are working on it.
