in Desire forum we have very big roms with small space in the memory

one solution to install some files of system into /sdext

or to repartition the 512 mb

and some guys increase the system partition from 250M to 384M or even more
so the data should be in the sd-card in the Ext partition

really dont want to discourage you guys, if it happens it would be a miracle... But porting Sense UI to other phones is literally impossible.. it has been the target of samsung developers over the years and its simply not possible...

There was once a Sense 2.1 port for Nexus S and Galaxy S but that was so laggy.. not usable as daily driver and there were FCs and FCS everywhere

GS2 has the most developers support around (maybe second to HTC Sensation) ... they had tried their luck but failed...

Good luck...



PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE (PM) ME 4 QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS. POST IN RELEVANT THREAD & I WILLB GLAD 2 REPLY THERE

Once in xperia x8 development, a dev named racht ported sense to the device. It runs well, kinda laggy and some if its basic function were missing, making it not suitable as an everyday phone...

It happens on X10 and with my class 4 sd card its fast enough. ROM not laggy at all.
Doomlord make it possible on X10.
Ask him, maybe he have a plan for ARC too.

i'm just getting a hang on Xperia as I switched several devices in few months, but I find this device very hard to develop on.
let me give you an explanation:
-lots of proprietary stuff around stock roms, CM has lots of bugs to be fixed too (especially ICS),
-kernel would would be based on CM, which I explained is buggy, working on half baked software is extremely hard to debug, so it would be best to start fom scratch, which is very time consuming
-baseband and camera interface is nothing like HTC at first sight..could be extremely problematic getting these working, and perhaps never in its full potential (ImageSense is out of question because it's hardware feat)
-SoC is good, same as Xperia arc (not S which is 8255T)
-every sense above version 3 is very hard to port, maybe skinned 2.1 would be better option.
-i'm not counting in any unexpected specifics which may delay development even further.

my toughts: about 10 months with skilled crew of 3 (good kernel developer, one who knows hardware& binary decompiling and one familiar with sense) working their free time and you MIGHT have something worthy to show.

now you may ask yourself if it's really worth it. you are probably better off with selling your device on ebay and buying One V on contract or without one(it's about 300euro in Slovenia off contract)

Great job! I really love sense ,but I'm not a Dev. I just want to buy a HTC one v, but I am just a senior high school student in China,that's to say I don't have enough money. . I hope you can finish it as soon as possible XD
