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:

WHAT WORK:
-Audio (<—-yes it works! and sounds very high xD)
-bootanimation HTC/BEATS (very beautiful and fluent)

WHAT DOESN’T:
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.
