HTC EVO 4G LTE Gets Jelly Bean Sense 4.5 Port

When dealing with AOSP-based ROMs, users and developers don’t really find themselves waiting for the next release of Android. In the case of OEM skins, they don’t have to wait for the next version either. For some time, the biggest issue facing the HTC EVO 4G LTE was unlocking the bootloader. With that accomplished, developers are now back to making sure they have the newest firmwares available. Now, there is a port of Jelly Bean with a dash of Sense 4.5.

XDA Senior Member chubbzlou released an early alpha build of Jelly Bean with Sense 4.5 for the EVO LTE. As the word “alpha” implies, it’s pretty rough around the edges. Here is the list of things not currently working:

Sdcard
Wifi
Bluetooth
NFC
Sound
Camera
Pretty much everything

So what works? So far, just data and GPS. It’s a port from the HTC Droid DNA, and chubbslou has asked for help from other devs to get this port up and running properly. For now, though, development will continue, and it’s not recommended that anyone flash the ROM unless they wanna see a preliminary build of Jelly Bean or if they’re going to help fix bugs. The EVO line up has always had good luck with ports, and this one will likely be no exception.

For additional details, check out the original thread.
