Sense 4.0 Port (HTC Endeavor Based) for the Nexus S

It seems that the leaked Endeavor RUU that appeared a few weeks ago gave birth to several ports and projects across various devices. HTC announced that the new version of Sense was rather slimmed down from previous iterations of the UI and on top of that, it is fully ICS compatible. It is only logical that people who are fans or curious about this to try and pour some efforts in getting this running in other devices. For instance,  XDA member swamp goblin has released a  pre-alpha (term that we have seen quite often as of late) port of Sense 4.0 with ICS for the Nexus S. As impressive and unrealistic as this sounds, it is not completely unheard of since other versions of Sense had been ported to non-HTC devices in the past, and with good results I might add. However, it still holds that “wow” factor that leave us in disbelief whenever we see “frankenports” like this.

Much as it currently stands with other ports for other devices, due to rather large hardware differences make this an interesting project to tackle for most devs out there. There is very little working on this rom at this moment, and short of booting, you may not get to do a whole lot just yet, but patience and determination will likely bring the wanted results. If you think you can help the dev iron out a few of the deficiencies of the port, help with drivers, features, etc., please swing by the thread and leave some comments and or feedback.

This is Sense 4.0, ICS 4.0.3. It is ported from the latest HTC Endeavour RUU leak. The Endeavour is a quad-core tegra 3 phone, with 720p display. So yes this rom will take some work.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
