HTC Kingdom Rom Ported to EVO (1st Release)
It has been quite a weekend for Sense lovers with the release of the first fully functional set of Sense 3.0 roms for the Desire family. As the Evo devs recently got their hands on dumps for the upcoming HTC Kingdom, the Doubleshot, and the Sensation, they were bound come out with something soon. XDA member XxXViRuSXxX has released the first release of the Kingdom port that he had been working on for the last few days. This port is a collaboration project with the other two ports already mentioned (and several devs as well) due to the roms being rather similar and the combined effort to get Rosie and all the 3D ish looking elements of Sense 3.0 working.
As you will see in the list below, mostly everything works in the device, including 4G. However, keep in mind that this is a first release and there are still many bugs to iron out like the fact that the weather app is still broken (the widget is working fine) and that the video camera seems to force close as soon as you try to record something. Please leave some feedback for the devs if you do decide to flash this rom.
- Both Cams
- Data update
- Prl Update
- Hardware acceleration
- 3.0 Sense
