Default HTC Photo Frame Widget

On my previous HTC EVO 4G LTE, I had a nice HTC Photo Frame widget. I understand it might be locked in with the Sense UI as it's an HTC widget, but I was surprised to see it not included on the HTC One M8.

I've tried a few widgets from the play store, but none are as elegant, simplified, and fully functional as the HTC version.

Is there a way to extract this widget from the older HTC phones and use it on the M8? I still have access to my evo for a few more days before I send it back to sprint (good riddance), so if there is something for me to try to get it from the evo, i'm down.

Bump for this. I'm really curious as to why HTC would remove these Photo Gallery widgets from the M8

Another bump for this....I copied the old sense 5 apk to system/app and set permissions to rwrr then rebooted.
The widget appeared and would let me try to assign it to a home screen, but as soon as I did, I got a error msg saying widget stopped working.
So it can be installed but crashes out....maybe you need to be deodexed?
I would love to see someone port this so that it did work though...
