The HTC Sensation and HTC Evo 3D were recently treated to an eagerly anticipated Sense 4.0 port by Virtuous development team. These ports were based on the leaked HTC Endeavor RUU, meaning a lot of widgets and apps had to be resized, due to the difference in screen resolution between the two devices and the HTC Endeavor (now known as the HTC One X).

Today, on behalf of the Virtuous development team, Recognized Developer mdeejay brings us the first custom ROM for these two devices, based on the freshly leaked HTC One S Developer Preview RUU. Given the HTC Sensation/Evo 3D and HTC One S share the same screen resolution (540×960), no resizing of widgets or apps is required, meaning greater overall com. . .

HTC Sensation Receives Official ICS Update – Nordic Countries Only

android4

It looks like the time has finally come for HTC device owners. After lots of promises, blood, sweat, and tears, we are finally seeing one of the largest handset manufacturers come out with the much anticipated ICS update for their 2011 line up of devices. The first reports started coming in this morning where a member got a notification update of an impending OTA, which was about 297 MB in size. XDA Forum Member FnH84 went a step further and caught this update.zip as well and uploaded it to a public domain for whoever wants to start tinkering with it.

Why is this a good thing you ask? Well, having an official build normally means that there is an official kernel associated with it, which will make sure that all featu. . . READ ON »

The HTC Sensation and EVO 3D have seen many Ice Cream Sandwich builds come and go in their respective development sections. However, the ICS development work to date for the devices have either been based on Sense 3 or derived from the Android Open Source Project.

On behalf of the Virtuous development team, XDA Recognized Developer m-deejay brings us the first custom Sense 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich custom ROM for these similar devices. The custom ROM is based on the leaked HTC Endeavour RUU 0.96.401.2, and has been debloated and optimized for performance. However, being in beta status, not everything may be working perfectly just yet.

In the words of the developer:

We already know that the HTC Sensation and Sensation XE will be the first devices to receive official Ice Cream Sandwich goodness from the Taiwanese giant, followed shortly by the Sensation XL. We also know that a test ROM was given to some people in Europe and Asia as part of a “soak build.”

Now we have two ICS RUU (ROM Update Utility) leaks for Sensation and Sensation XE. XDA Recognized Developer mike1986, brings us the leaks:

Liberate Your Unlocked Sensation or EVO 3D with Dumlock

www.teamw

UPDATE: HTC Dumlock has now been updated to work seamlessly with any aftermarket recovery. Full details can be found directly on the TeamWin website.

When we first learned that HTC would be unlocking the bootloaders of its devices, enthusiasts everywhere relished the idea of complete device freedom. Later, HTC started to make true on its promise by unlocking its Verizon and AT&T bootloaders.

Unfortunately, though, all was not perfect with HTC’s unlock tool. Unlocking an HTC Sensation or EVO 3D using the official method results in being unable to flash to the boot partition via recovery. Instead, the more cumbersome fastboot protocol must be used.

Now thanks to XDA Recogn. . . READ ON »

HTC Dresses Sensation In White Ice To Receive ICS

sensation-white

We already knew to expect that the HTC Sensation was getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, but what we didn´t expect was that also will receive a white version as well. We have already seen Sensation XL in white and it looks quite nice. Currently, the Sensation comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a dual core MSM8260 Snapdragon at 1.GHz and S-LCD capacitive touchscreen with 540 x 960 pixels, 4.3 inches. The white version has the same specs as the one we already know and only changes its appearance with a nice white and silver color.

The expected launch date for this model is pointing to March 1st, and with the release date we hope HTC Sense 4.0 is finished and ready to load into the White Sensations. Unfortunat. . . READ ON »
