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:
Fully fixed camera
Sense 4.5 skins
Rooted with SuperSU
Extended Quick Settings
Advanced Power Menu
Team Blackout kernel
Excellent battery life
GPU UI Rendering
Better CPU Performance
init.d scripts support
Improved EXT4 System
Removed 3-dot menu
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.
