Sense Haters…. CM7 Arrives For The Sensation
If there is one thing that is real about Android is that there is enough variation to please most people out there. Some people just flat out refuse to use Sense in their devices and prefer lighter roms such as AOSP. As many of you know, the most famous one in this category is CyanogenMod, which works with a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer persiansown, the HTC Sensation has been added to this ever growing list of devices. The rom is still in initial stages but it is quite usable according to the dev. There are, however, some bugs which could potentially put some people off from it until the bugs are fixed.
Please ensure that you have a rooted device and that you read the entire OP to avoid any potential difficulties. Last but not least, please leave some feedback for the dev just in case you run into bugs.
The current buglist:
-Recording 1080p video for a couple minutes causes a soft reboot
-Misc minor scaling issues
-Skype requires a speaker toggle for audio to work correctly
-Small issue where wifi calling FCs on boot for EU Sensations. This will be fixed.
-Bluetooth headset is untested because no one on the team has one. I don’t know if it is a bug or not.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
