Jelly Bean Alpha for the Sensation and Amaze 4G
The march of Jelly Bean 2012 is in full swing. In the last week, we brought you Jelly Bean-related news on such devices as the ASUS Transformer TF300T, the Acer Iconia A100 and A500, and an XDA Developer TV roundup. The pace is truly awesome. The latest devices to the latest and greatest version of Android are a couple of T-Mobile HTC devices—the HTC Sensation and the HTC Amaze 4G.
XDA Forum Member sahil_lombar with the help of others, brings Jelly Bean AOSP to the Sensation. HTC Amaze users get the goods thanks to XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89, who actually brought AOSP in the form of CyanogenMod 10. Both ROMs are alpha releases, which means there’s a pretty decent list of things working and not working. For now, things not working on the Sensation include:
Button and Notification lights
and many other things
And for the HTC Amaze:
* Wi-Fi (Got borked again)
The developers for both ROMs are working to get the issues resolved, so users only need to have patience until the work is completed. While both ROMs are stable enough to play with, neither one is ready to be used a daily driver just yet. Until then, though, sit back and enjoy the development.
