imilka's Sensation Sense v0.1

Based on latest 2.3.3 HTC Sensation (Pyramid) 1.05.xx

Thanks a lot for Sklar for the video

Please read the WHOLE post before posting


ROM-DEV to crowd: do u wanna see the latest?

Crowd: sure1!!!!!!111

ROM-DEV: i mentioned camera and some other things don't work, please, don't ask for it, it will be fixed as soon as possible.

Crowd: sure just give us the rom ! ! !!!11111

ROM-DEV: okay, here you are.

Crowd: wow thanks a lot omfg we wanna kill ourselves!!!!11

---- 15 minutes past ----

Crowd x100: oh ****, nothing works, these things lag, camera doesn't work[/b]

Crowd x1000: camera doesn't work, when you will fix camera? may we take libs from 2.3.3? Maybe this is an app problem? Have you fixed camera in your latest release? Why camera doesn't work? Maybe my camera died? ((((

Please, NO messages about the camera and other things mentioned inside OP, if you don't know how to fix that. If you know possible fix -> welcome to my PM or #htc-linux-chat on freenode.

If you wanna use this ROM as a base to work on - sure, but I would like to see my name inside your thread ^^


Let's continue.

Unfortunately, we have some problems with our EGL graphic libs, so there are some graphic glitches. Most annoying one (and the only one i've noticed so far) - is that some widgets and all shortcuts are not shown on the desktop.

They actually are on desktop, they can be moved or deleted, but we can't see them.

So, maybe, you won't get full sense 3 experience until we'll fix it.


And another thing that reduces the impression - it's wrong resolution.

Sensation has same screen, but it has bigger resolution - 960x540, we have 800x480, so you won't see some parts of the screen (bottom parts).

I don't know now if someone can be done to fix this.

So please, notice: I REMOVED HtcLockScreen by default (you'll see default android lockscreen) because you can't unlock it after boot. But actually, I included this app below, so you can flash it via CWR and look at it (it will be unlockable)



What's working

It boots
EGL acceleration (however, still buggy)
Radio ( Calls, SMS )
Mobile data
Wi-Fi Tethering (should)
GPS (should)
Bluetooth A2DP music playback & calls



What doesn't work

Video playback
Some buggy things as graphic bugs and bad resolution
PC USB Drive mount is sometimes buggy


Requirements & installation

For EU - 1.0GB or more ext2 partition
200M system CWR partition

For TMOUS - 550M system CWR partition 0_o

Flash via CWR



EU v0.1 -

TMOUS v0.1 -


(flash via CWR)

EU ver -
TMOUS ver -

Imilka you are a genius !! This afternoon I have just asked you on the other thread if in the future you would have done a port and after 3 hours here it is !! Incredible !!
I hope that when you will fix those bugs you will consider a SD porting, in the mean time well done !!!
