Sense 4.1 Ported to HTC One V

How much an OEM supports its hardware is variable. Sometimes, they give frequent and timely updates. Other times, an update could take months or not happen at all. In the latter case, developers sometimes deliver an update much earlier than official release. HTC One V users have a chance to do that now with a full HTC Sense 4.1 port.

The ROM is a port from the HTC Desire S and contains a Sense 4.1-skinned build of Android 4.0.4. XDA Recognized Contributor shubhamchamaria has released the ROM for both the CDMA and GSM variants, so no matter which you’re running, you can take part. The full feature list includes:

Ported from Desire S
Full Sense 4.1
First Sense Rom with 4.0.4
Extra Music enhancers like Wow SRS, 5.1 Surround etc
All Sense 4.5 Skins working perfectly and added into the Rom
APM, EQS
Few useful apps included
All transitions of full sense
Weather animations
Leap view
Flip Clock
Proper 3D Rosie
Array of many Widgets of Full Sense

In terms of bugs, shubhamchamaria says they have all been squashed, so this is definitely daily driver material. There may be a few lurking about, but there should be nothing major wrong.

For more info, check out either the CDMA thread or the GSM thread.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
