This thread is about OpenSensation and not about my kernel!!

Your warranty is now void.

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Known Bugs / Fixes
Quote:

  • MHL doesn't works as expected
  • Bluetooth may not work perfectly on every device
  • Not compatible with SuperWipe.zip
    • Use 4EXT's full-wipe function
  • Your bug is not listed here?

Difference between OpenSensation and CyanogenMod
Quote:

  • we have 1080p, they don’t
  • we have OTA Updates, they don’t
  • we have PDroid patches included, they don’t
  • we have removed RomManger and Terminal Emulator (bloatware, still available in Play Store)

USB-OTG
Quote:

The USB-OTG stuff is a little bit tricky. It looks like some Sensations have a self powered USB Host port which allows them to use an USB-Stick without external power. But most Sensation don’t have it.
You need

  • USB-OTG y-cable (like this)
    • (or a normal USB-OTG cable if your attached device has it’s own power supply)
  • in case you’re using an USB-OTG y-cable you need an external power supply
    • I recommend you a mobile battery with a female USB-Port
This ROM will mount the first partition of your attached device (fat32 & ntfs only!) to /mnt/usbdisk. If you wan’t to use more partitions/devices I recommend you to use Chainfire’s StickMount App

Requirements
Quote:

  • HTC Sensation (XE and 4G sould work, too)
  • custom Recovery (I recommend 4EXT)
  • 3.32 or 3.33 Firmware (ROM is tested with 3.32 firmware, so use 3.33 at your own risk!)
  • S-OFF (ROM should work without S-OFF, but you might need 4EXT’s SmartFlash to properly flash the boot.img)
  • SDCard

Download
FAQ
Quote:

  • Can we have XYZ from Sense?
    • NO!
  • “Is there a way to have FM Radio?”
    • No, there is no way to build it from source. Try Spirit FM.

Thanks & Credits

  • Vorbeth, intervigilium, elelinux and cretin45 (for bringing CM9 to the Sensation)
  • intervigilium, faux123 and showp1984 (for the kernel)

  • aquariumsoft (for UpdateMe)
  • SebastianFM (for his USB-OTG patch)

It's cm9 but the device tree may be a little different then the one kmobs is using, but this is the closest to it I believe. I compiled a build from his tree two nights ago. hardware acceleration works but my audio and camera didn't quite work. vorbeth did help me figure it out and it's working now

This tree is something I pieced together from research or bit's already available on Github.
This is only intended to fix the void between now and an official CM9 release.
