First Custom Skin Surfaces for HTC Sense 4 Devices

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.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price. The initial launch phase was met with mixed feelings after a few controversial marketing tactics, but they eventually gave way to strong sales figures.   Earlier this week, OnePlus went on to unveil the successor to the One, and while the device continues to offer top-of-the-line specs at...

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
