Extremely Rough Sense 4 Port Appears on Galaxy Nexus
Just a few days ago, we brought you news of an HTC Sense 4.0 port for the Samsung Nexus S based on the leaked HTC Endeavor RUU. At the time, no such porting efforts had been made on Google’s latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Luckily the wait wasn’t too long, as XDA Forum Member nello92 has now released a work-in-progress port of his own.
Rather than basing his port on the Endeavor RUU as we saw previously on the Nexus S, the developer is using the leaked HTC One X RUU as the foundation. Currently the ROM is in very early “alpha” status, and not much can be claimed other than its ability to boot and play audio. That said, progress is being made at a fast pace, and the developer is calling out for collaboration with fellow developers who may wish to join the porting efforts.
In the words of the developer:
-Audio (<—-yes it works! and sounds very high xD)
-bootanimation HTC/BEATS (very beautiful and fluent)
-ALL THE REST!! FOR NOW IT WON’T PASS THE BOOT SCREEN!!
To check out the progress, or even give it a whirl on your own Galaxy Nexus, visit the ROM thread. Just be sure to make a Nandroid backup if you are brave enough to flash, as this is certainly not at daily driver status yet.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
