Sense 5 Appears on HD2, Device Still Alive and Kicking

To say that the HTC HD2 has survived the test of time would be a severe understatement. The device, which was first released four years ago should by all means already be in a museum. After all, judging by modern device longevity standards, our phones are obsolete often before we buy them thanks to upgraded models and healthy competition.

Despite its advanced age, however, the HD2 is still thriving. There are new builds of operating systems never even intended for the device being ported at lightning pace. The latest addition? None other than HTC’s latest and greatest iteration of their Sense overlay.

The porting work comes courtesy of XDA Senior Members aazzam16661gilbert32, dungphp, and a host of others cited in the first post. It is important to keep in mind that this is not yet daily driver status. Naturally, since the port is still having its kinks worked out, not everything works. Currently, the touchscreen, cellular connectivity, and data work. However, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB mass storage, sound, camera, video playback, and GPS don’t yet work. In other words, we would only recommend trying this if you know what you are doing and have a good backup to restore.

If you’ve still got your hands on an HTC HD2 and would like to play around with Sense 5, or if you’re just a former owner looking to pay his or her respects to the venerable device, head over to the ROM thread. We look forward to many years of continued HD2 development here on XDA.

[Many thanks to XDA Senior Member aazzam16661 for the heads up!]

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
