Sense 4.0 Booting on the International Galaxy S II
It has been a long time coming. Many Samsung Galaxy S II owners have been clamoring for an HTC Sense port for a while now, with over 1500 users asking for it. There have been several attempts made with bits and pieces coming in, but the Galaxy S II has never had a bootable HTC Sense port. Now, not only is there a bootable Sense port, but it’s Sense 4.0—the latest and greatest version to date.
It took a lot of teamwork to get it this far. XDA Senior Member QuBe2 has kept track of all involved in the project and it’ll like be a lot more before the port is fully functional. So far the team, dubbed Team Sense4All, has gotten the ROM booting but aside from that, it isn’t quite clear what works and what doesn’t. It can be ascertained from screen shots, though, that data and phone service are among the things not working.
From here, it can be expected the development to start speeding up. One of the trickiest parts of getting any port to work properly is booting for the first time. From there, it’s fixing bugs until everything is working. So users looking forward to using Sense on the Galaxy S II will have to remain patient for now, as the ROM is developer-only at this point and will not cut it as a daily driver. As always, any developers who want to make the process less painful are more than free to jump in and help.

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
