Sense 4.0 Builds Come to Desire & Desire HD

HTC Sense 4.0 seems to be a love-it or hate-it affair for most users. For those who enjoy its take on the Android UI, it is now available for the Desire and Desire HD thanks to a couple of ported ROMs. Both ports are based on Android 4.0.3 and originally come from the HTC One V, which comes preloaded with HTC Sense 4.0. These releases will thus give you the latest Sense experience, if you are so inclined.

The port for Desire was made by Recognized Contributor shaky156. And even though it has a long way to go until it is usable as a daily driver ROM, it is an encouraging initial release. Earlier this year, we saw the Desire HD receive a Sense 3.6 ROM. However, this port is instead based on the newer Sense 4.0. Being that the Desire is over 2 years old, it’s great to see the latest Sense on it.

The Desire HD port was created by Senior Member HTC_Phone, who has made a lot of progress since his initial release, and has quite a bit working now. One thing worth noting on the Desire HD ROM is that it is Sense 4.0a ,which is the a version of Sense 4.0. This ROM is on the same path to being a completely functioning ROM and is already usable as a daily driver.

The current “not working” list for the two releases is as follows:

  • Desire – Audio, GPS, Bluetooth, Data, USB Mount, SD Card, and Other Small Bugs
  • Desire HD – Camera, Microphone, and Other Small Bugs

You can learn more and download the goods in the Desire thread and Desire HD thread.
