Default HTC Sense 5 spotted on the HTC Droid DNA

Looks like someone is running the HTC M7 ROM on the DNA already.

I'm sure HTC & verizon will give us an update for the DNA... It's good to know someone is already on it...

I wouldn't get my hopes up about us seeing it too quickly. VZW doesn't have the best track record of getting updates to their phones quickly.

Basically x70xchallengerx got it, support our devs and hope they get it. The likeliness of this phone getting another android update is 50/50, and an update after that is probably zero.

I like this phone, I just prefer to keep my expectations real.
Rumor has it I developed something once

Well said. It seems like updates are only realistic if you have a Nexus phone, somewhat probable if you have a manufacturer's legacy device (such as an S-line phone from Samsung), and almost doubtful if you have anything else (unless you think waiting around for 6+ months longer than everyone else doesn't count as doubtful). VZW does seem to be one of the slower carriers when it comes to releasing the updates from what I've read over the past couple of years on these Android phones & sites.

This isn't a new android version though. Being updated with a new UI by the manufacturer is going to be a bit different than a full android update.. One less step for it to pass through, so I would hope we might see it sooner rather than later.. Not quite sure what kind of tweaks Verizon would even need to make to a UI, aside from functionality/compatability issues maybe..

I'm on an international Butterfly that isn't network branded... I'm expecting at least one official android update and hopefully a move to sense 5. You lot with verizon phones may have different expectations...

Here's the thing though, if something comes out for your phone then they will be ported to the DNA.

Exactly, plus there's not much "porting" to do, because the DNA is mostly the same hardware as the M7 .. I can't imagine it would be harder than putting Sense 4 on the Rezound... which was done

It won't be hard to do once we get a publicly released RUU from the m7

Functionality depends a lot on if its android 4.1.2 or 4.2.1 though for now

Of course ideally the DNA just gets updated to sense 5 on its own lol
