Sense 4.1 Has Been Ported to the HTC Desire HD

With all the new devices being released, or about to be released, some might ask where the love is for older devices. OEMs haven’t been the greatest when it comes to delivering updates. Even if the device is capable of running it. However, that’s when the developers at XDA step in and deliver updates. The HTC Desire HD is one of those devices that just keeps on rolling. Not long ago, Sense 4.0 was more or less made stable. Now, Sense 4.1 has arrived.

XDA Recognized Contributor torxx has released the first Sense 4.1 ROM for the Desire HD. It just goes to show that OEMs really don’t always know what they’re talking about when it comes to what their devices can handle. It’s running full Sense 4.1 on top of Android 4.0.4 and contains a number of features. Some include:

Lagfree
Fully fixed camera
Sense 4.5 skins
Rooted with SuperSU
Deodexed
Zipaligned
Extended Quick Settings
Advanced Power Menu
UI Optimization
Team Blackout kernel
Newest BusyBox
Excellent battery life
GPU UI Rendering
RAM Optimization
sysro/sysrw permission
Better CPU Performance
init.d scripts support
Improved EXT4 System
Removed 3-dot menu
Removed bloatware
Custom Bootanimation
1% stock battery
Many other tweaks! (see tweak package)

While it is stable enough to be run as a daily driver, some users have reported assorted small issues—nothing serious, though. For the most part, it’s some HTC widgets not working, the tweak package causing some force closes, and other miscellaneous issues.

If you’d like to give the latest HTC Sense a shot on the Desire HD, check out the original thread.

Which Manufacturer (And Device) Made You Choose Android?

The beautiful thing about Android is that there is so much to choose from. There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?

KickMaterial: Material Design For Kickstarter

Frustrated by the lack of a Kickstarter Android App, Grzegorz Oksiuta and Outline have collaborated to design an MD themed Kickstarter app. While Kickstarter has put an end to hopes of a release, the concept looks spectacular and if not for an overly cautious legal department "could be released tomorrow".   "Last year, to keep up with what’s great, I switched from iOS to Android.
