HTC Vision (G2) Gets Gingerbread Sense, Courtesy of Team Villain

For all of those eager G2 owners out there, you are probably happy with the Gingerbread builds available for your devices. However, you are left with a big void in your heart as Sense is missing from your daily interaction with your device. Thanks to our friends at Team Villain and XDA member HomerSp, Vision owners can now enjoy their beloved Sense back in their devices. This is a breakthrough development as the port was created from a merge of roms (Huashan and Wildfire S). The port still has a few things that need some tweaking (let’s face it, porting Sense to other devices has been a hard task since the days it was called TF3D back for WM). However, it is a port that can easily be used as a daily driver. The latest patch allows for installation of apps to SD.

If you have this device, please give it a go and report any issues you may have encountered.

I, and Team Villain, are proud to present you with the first Gingerbread Sense ROM for HTC Vision. This rom is basically a merge of the Huashan leak and the Wildfire S leak (credits to 911sniper for both), which means that it includes all the HTC Sense goodies.

You can find more information in the development thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
