First Modified Sense 4.1 ROM for the HTC One X

HTC made a promises to their customers that the One series line up wouldn’t be neglected like their other devices have been. So far, they’ve been keeping up with their word, as the One series devices have gotten plenty of updates and have been promised Jelly Bean. Of course, it’s perfectly normal to remain skeptical.

Until official Jelly Bean release, though, it’s up to developers to keep the firmware fresh. And for Sense phones, it doesn’t get much more fresh than the newest version of HTC Sense. Now, HTC One X users can get their hands on the first custom Sense 4.1 ROM.

The ROM comes from XDA Recognized Developer mike1986.. ARHD doesn’t do much in the way of theming, but it offers a large feature list over the stock offering including:

Removed software (CPU) rendering – full nVidia Tegra 3 (GPU) rendering
