Its not so much about the processor, but more to do with the resolution. You will need to resize qHD graphics which is a pain, and less convient

Just FYI - if the resizing is the major issue the Virtuos team released their resizing tool yesterday which should make this procedure much easier

Ah, the m10 tools? Great! The last I heard, these tools were closed source, great news now!

Nonetheless, its still extra hassle resizing, when we can just use Sense 3.5 perfect WVGA ports .....

Never used it, so cannot be completely sure, but:
Quote:
After much poking around the apk’s it came apparent that HTC had started to use a special binary format called m10. These m10 files were new and at the time no one knew what they contained or even how to decode them. Along came Diamondback and Flemmard, between them they managed to build a decoder/ encoder for the m10 format. Once decoded they were able to resize sense 3 and the now legendary Virtuous Unity was born.

The m10 project soon developed in to a much bigger idea, why have a piece of software that is only able to modify one element of apks. So work began on implementing existing tools such as apktool, adb and more. A lot of time has been spent making sure that work flow is correct and provides the best possible user experience.

And that's where we are today, presenting you Virtuous Ten Studio.
