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.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
