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.

For more information, head over to the original thread.

Would the LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
