Cross-posting this to the original Sense6 thread for this ROM too, since they are essentially the same thing.
I have a comment about the NFC (or lack thereof) issue. I am not a developer, so please forgive me if this is totally noobish and absolutely impossible to do.
It's been stated that one of the reasons NFC can't be enabled in this ROM is because the donor phone (the One S) does not have the same kind of NFC hardware, so the components cannot be enabled, or something to that effect. However, the One X/XL *does* have functional NFC hardware. How hard would it be (or is it even possible) to take the NFC components out of a stock ROM for the One X/XL and add them to this ROM?
Again, I'm just thinking out loud and I really don't know what I'm talking about with respect to development, so please forgive me!
