Enable 3D Pics in Stock Gallery for Sense 4+ on EVO 3D

3D-IMAGES

Recently, we have seen lots of cool projects being born on the HTC EVO 3D, which is for the most part a device that is slowly fading into the shadow of its younger, slimmer, and more powerful brethren. But as it is customary on XDA, this is not going to stop devs from continuing with work on devices with such unique features (fully functional 3D camera and display). The only problem is that as new updates become available from our devs, other things get broken. In the case of this, Sense is very much tied up to every aspect of operating the device’s 3D capabilities, and porting the UI and framework is never without its hiccups.

One of the features that is missing from most Sense 4+ based custom ROMs is the ability to s. . . READ ON »

Sense 4 Ported to Sony Xperia Devices

299475_369679079783097_410078611_n

HTC Sense is one of those things you either love or loathe. Much more than just another launcher, Sense is a complete framework replacement, with so much of the Android system being integrated into Sense. Some people like Sense so much that they spend a significant amount of time and effort in porting it to other non-HTC devices.

Enter XDA Recognized Developer Zackconsole, who has managed to port HTC Sense 4.0 to not only one device, but a number of Sony Xperia devices. Before you Xperia owners get too excited, the ROMs are still considered very pre-alpha, meaning they are far from complete and not usable for any real purpose. They are intended for developers only at this stage, or for those hardcore flash. . . READ ON »

Sense Bootscreen Changer: Where Function and Aesthetics Meet

htc-sense

For Android users rocking an AOSP-based ROM like CyanogenMod, changing their device’s bootscreen is a snap. However, for users of HTC Sense-based ROMs, the process is a bit more complicated. Unlike AOSP where users have applications able to load everything for them, Sense users have had to manually change the files in the system directory. That is, until now.

Thanks to XDA Forum Member vsaravind007’s latest application, Sense Bootscreen Changer, users of Sense-based ROM’s can now change their bootscreens on the fly. The application currently features:

First Custom Skin Surfaces for HTC Sense 4 Devices

Virtuous Immersion Skin for HTC Sense 4 Devices

Do you have an HTC device running Sense 4 and find yourself unhappy with the range of themes supplied by HTC? Want to install a custom skin on your device while sticking with Sense 4, without having to switch to a different launcher? There is now an option thanks to the first custom skin for Sense 4 devices.

Since Sense 3.0, HTC started using its proprietary theming format. It wasn’t long before XDA Recognized Developers Flemmard and Diamondback found a way to crack open the custom files storing the resources, opening Sense 3 up for theming. HTC changed the format again with Sense 3.5, but the same guys again succeeded in finding the new image format, making custom skins possible. With Sense 4, they hav. . . READ ON »

HTC Sense 3.5 Up And Running On The Galaxy Gio

galaxy_gio_2

Whether you love it or hate it, HTC Sense has a habit of making an appearance on unexpected devices. The latest to join the club is the Samsung Galaxy Gio. No you didn’t misread that, I said Galaxy Gio.

XDA Senior Member voetbalremco is the person behind this. As you may expect, there are bugs so don’t go trying to use this as your daily driver just yet. While issues with RIL and SD Card detection have been fixed, there are still some remaining issues with WiFi, Bluetooth, sound, sensors, and so on. However, it does boot and offer basic functionality, even if only to marvel at the wonder (or travesty, depending on your point of view) that is Sense on a Samsung device.

The ROM itself is based on the latest Chi. . . READ ON »

First Modified Sense 4.1 ROM for the HTC One X

ARHD FTW

HTC made a promises to their customers that the One series line up wouldn’t be neglected like their other devices have been. So far, they’ve been keeping up with their word, as the One series devices have gotten plenty of updates and have been promised Jelly Bean. Of course, it’s perfectly normal to remain skeptical.

Until official Jelly Bean release, though, it’s up to developers to keep the firmware fresh. And for Sense phones, it doesn’t get much more fresh than the newest version of HTC Sense. Now, HTC One X users can get their hands on the first custom Sense 4.1 ROM.

The ROM comes from XDA Recognized Developer mike1986.. ARHD doesn’t do much in the way of theming, but it o. . . READ ON »

EVO 3D Finally Gets Official ICS Update – Unimpressed is the Word of the Day

icson3d

So after months and months of waiting, kicking, and screaming from the user base, Sprint has finally decided to provide their EVO 3D customers with a brand spanking new base to play around with. The new official Sprint ROM (base number 2.89.651.2) has been fitted with ICS 4.0.3, Sense 3.6 (as promised), a new radio, HBOOT 1.58, and some new bits and pieces of firmware. As always, this is loaded (and I do mean loaded) with Sprint’s usual bloatware such as Sprint Zone, Nascar, and a few other unremovable (by regular means anyways) bits of Sprint love on the device. After all, nothing screams “we care about our customers” than the bundled Blockbuster app, embedded into the framework with an addit. . . READ ON »

Difficulties Decoding M10 Images in Recent Sense Versions

20110502203743

Themers working with HTC Sense ROMs currently face a major problem. They are unable to modify most images used by Sense 3.5 and beyond because of HTC’s method of storing images inside proprietary m10 files. Unfortunately, the images are not stored as JPG or PNG. Instead, they are encoded with an unknown algorithm.

Previously, M10Tools by XDA Recognized Developers Flemmard and Diamondback would be used to decode these images. However, with the release of Sense 3.5, this no longer was an option, as HTC added new image formats that are not compatible with the software package.

After trying unsuccessfully to decode the new image formats, Recognized Developer and Forum Moderator Diamondback ha. . . READ ON »

HTC Amaze 4G Gets the Gift of Sense 4

amaze4

Looks like Sense 4.0 keeps going down the 2011 line of devices, filling these devices with new life and a sense of continuity thanks to the wonderful work of some of our developers. The latest case took place earlier on Sunday as XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89 and his colleagues at Team Nightmare felt confident enough on their work to release it into the wild, granting the Amaze 4G users the option of adding yet another port to their arsenal of ROMs and options.

The ROM in question, much like with other early Sense 4 releases, has very few working features and most of them are nowhere near enough to be considered daily drivers—at least for the early ports that we have covered in their alpha states. A. . . READ ON »
