HTC Amaze 4G Gets the Gift of Sense 4
Looks like Sense 4.0 keeps going down the 2011 line of devices, filling these devices with new life and a sense of continuity thanks to the wonderful work of some of our developers. The latest case took place earlier on Sunday as XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89 and his colleagues at Team Nightmare felt confident enough on their work to release it into the wild, granting the Amaze 4G users the option of adding yet another port to their arsenal of ROMs and options.
The ROM in question, much like with other early Sense 4 releases, has very few working features and most of them are nowhere near enough to be considered daily drivers—at least for the early ports that we have covered in their alpha states. Although it still has a long way to go, the devs got this to boot, and there are a few other things working such as Bluetooth, which hardly ever works right off the bat, as well as the touchscreen. However, nothing else seems to work properly at the moment.
Keep in mind, once again, that this is by no means a finished build. So, please share what you can find in terms of bugs with the devs so that the build can be improved and the quest for Sense 4.0 can be fulfilled.
- As of now not much
Bluetooth (Strange Enough)

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
