Sense 5(.5) Toolbox
by Mikanoshi & me

What is Sense 5 Toolbox?
Sense 5 Toolbox module contains a large variety of mods that will improve almost every aspect of your Sense device. You have to have Xposed installed to use these mods (except EQS reorder for older devices). For more info about Xposed refer to the original thread.

A note about compatibility. We develop the toolbox on ARHD on the HTC One. That ensures that every mod is compatible with ARHD. We can't test the mods on every other ROM. But as long as the ROM is near stock without deep changes, it should work there too. For the best and most complete experience I recommend using ARHD.
Which mods are included?

Interface mods
  • Transparent statusbar and notification drawer
  • Center clock, AM/PM removal, traffic meter, horizontal EQS
  • Gestures to manipulate recent apps and additional information about each app, AOSP styled recents

Statusbar mods
  • Icons by vomer (CleanBeam) and HD2Owner
  • Customizable color themes for all new statusbar icons
  • Ability to hide any icon

Sense mods
  • Transparency for many UI elements (dock, clock widget, app drawer, folders, etc)
  • Infinite apps in folders, 7 home screens, home popup menu, more grid options for homescreens and app drawer
  • Actions for vertical swipes and shaking on homescreens, horizontal swipes on dock

Messaging mods
  • Wake on SMS, increase MMS size
  • Replace delivery notifications with toasts
  • Increase MMS size

Controls mods
  • Volume2wake
  • Activate flashlight on power long press
  • Bind actions to hardware buttons (Back long press and swipe up from Home)
  • Bind actions to volume keys for camera and music playback controls

Various mods
  • Advanced Power Menu
  • Show more information about installed apps and apps that are being installed
  • Improved screen locking and unlocking
  • Hardware buttons backlight control
  • Large caller photo in dialer and on lockscreen during calls
  • Disable unwanted notifications and confirmation dialogs
  • On/off screen animations (Fade, CRT)
How to use the Toolbox?
First you must have Xposed Framework installed (more Info here). After that enable the Sense 5 Toolbox module in the Xposed Installer, set up the mods you like and tap 'Soft Reboot' icon to apply them.
You can also reorder EQS tiles using drag'n'drop on Sense versions prior to 5.5. Select EQS reorder option in Toolbox, tap a tile to remove it, use a '+' icon at the top to add new tile. Tap save icon when you're done.
Backup functionality
Toolbox supports settings backup and restore using default Andriod cloud capabilities. Enable backup in Settings > Backup & reset. Now every time you uninstall and install Toolbox its settings will be automatically restored. If you want to save/restore settings between reinstallations, use local backup on SDCard function (its button is next to Hot Reboot).
EQS Backup function
Due to the nature of ROM flashes you will loose your custom order on every flash. A backup will be made at every save of the order to overcome that. Start the app and tap the clock icon at the top to restore your order after a ROM flash, then save and soft reboot. Backup is saved to your internal storage. Note that it will be removed if you uninstall Toolbox, or do a factory reset. You can probably save it with the usual backup tools or save the Android/data/com.langerhans.one/ folder on your SDCard.

  • Added polish tranlsation by @cvxcvx (Before you ask, I still have no idea how to handle translations in a way that doesn't consume all my time...)

  • Fix for Vol2Wake. After installation go into the settings, disable Vol2Wake, wait a sec, enable it again, full reboot to apply. You don't need to do it if you don't have problems. Thanks to @baha76_s for pointing me to the fix!
  • Fix for home assist action on lockscreen.
  • Fix for misaligned text under CleanBeam settings.
  • Fixed missing translation.

  • Added brightness slider for notifications panel

  • Total UI overhaul.
  • The Toolbox is now accessible through the phone settings.
  • Landscape orientation is now possible.
  • Added "About" screen.
  • Wallpaper is not removed when in appdrawer and dock is transparent, prevents dock black background.

  • Added Remove clock/weather widget from app drawer.
  • Added New grid sizes in app drawer - This is active automatically! Set up the desired size in App drawer. 4x6 and 5x6 makes everything a bit packed, so long App titles will get cut a tiny bit on the 2nd line.
  • Added Disable EQS and restore settings button
  • Added Folders transparency setting. This includes open folders and their icons. Sometimes needs a FULL reboot to work.

    Thanks again for letting me implement these awesome mods into the Toolbox!

Just a fix for transparent status bar. This will now allow true 0-100% transparency setting for Sense launcher! This is for everyone who wants opaque status bar

  • Fixed cause for possible FC on start.
  • Changed status bar trasparency approch. This should make it work for thos who had problems before.

  • Added AOSP style recent apps menu.

  • Unified app for One, One X and One X+ - Now called Sense 5 Toolbox!
  • Added transparency for the stock HTC clock + weather widget
    Sorry, but this is the last transparency mod I'm going to add.
    Other mods like blinkfeed or app drawer background seem to use a Prism.apk from another device.
    Replicating that in xposed would be a huge overhead IMHO.
    Maybe some other dev can point me in the right direction...
  • Added 'Wake on SMS' mod.
  • Added possibility to remove folder limit (Was 16 apps per folder)
  • Added option to disable the sound that plays on volume change by buttons
  • Added One X 4.2.2 compatibility.
  • Fixed transparency settings for a 0 value.
  • Added horizontal EQS. The First 5 of your normal EQS will be used there.
  • Added options to set custom transparency values for: Status bar, Prism dock background. Please note, that this will revert if you change launchers. Reboot to apply again. Happened to me when I switchen from Nova to Prism and back.
  • Fixed transparent Statusbar in combination with battery icon.
  • Complete change of the Xposed module hook structure for easier addition of new mods. Also lower overhead.
  • Updated support post link.
  • Added more info about APM.
  • Add version string to the bottom title and support entry.
  • Disable EQS feautre if root is not available. Xposed Mods still work.
  • Delete tmp.xml directly after use. No need to keep it.
  • Removed some unneded logging stuff.
  • Added "Force focus, then shutter" option to the camera mod.
  • Added transparent status bar.
  • Added 'Keep screen on' option in display and dev settings.

A more specific FAQ section for the One (For general FAQ scroll down a bit)

1. When I try to enter recovery it just blinks for a second and the phone reboots. How do I get into recovery?
Use Vol-Down + Power to enter fastboot mode. Now connect the phone to the PC and use 'fastboot erase cache'. After that it should be able to boot recovery correctly.
2. The phone rebooted itself while installing the ROM, now it just bootloops. How should I recover my phone?
Reboot into recovery and flash again. If recovery won't load, check FAQ 1.
3. Do I need to wipe my data everytime I flash a new version?
No, a data wipe is only needed when you come from stock or another custom ROM. It is also recommended but not manadtory to wipe when there is a base update. A wipe is needed if you want to go to GE ROM
4. Do I need to flash boot.img seperately?
No, the installer will flash it for you.
5. Can I flash this ROM on my T-Mobile / AT&T / Rogers... variant?
Yes, you can. The ROM will work on all the variants except Sprint, as it has some significant differences. Sprint is supported only with version 31.6 as of now. WiFi calling is available in version 31.6.
6. And where do I get the old versions?
Here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6vdveku2f...c/ROMs/HTC_One
7. I am on AT&T and my signal is much lower than on stock ROM. How do I fix this?
In fact your signal is not lower. The lower singnal bar display is a cosmetic issue. To check your actual signal strength go to Settings->Info->Network and look for the dbm value. When you compare this you will notice your signal strengh is okay.
8. I forgot to select an option in AROMA / I don't want a mod anymore. How can I add/remove it afterwards?
Reflash the ROM with the desired options. No wipe required.
9. How do I get rid of the 3-dot-menu?
As of the 4.2.2 update HTC introduced the Long-press-home-as-menu functionality, which also removes the black menu bar. Activate it under Settings -> Display -> Home Button.
10. Volume-wakeup mod doesn't work sometimes, is there a fix?
Some variations of the VolWake mod won't work in deep sleep mode. You need to use another variant, like inside a custom kernel.
11. Speaking of kernels, which one do you recommend?
This is mainly a matter of personal taste. I use the stock kernel included in AR HD. It is stable and works nicely. You are free to try other kernels, but make sure you report kernel issues on the kernel's thread.
12. When will you upload version x.y?
Please, don't ask for ETAs. It will be uploaded, when it's done Sometimes, Mike likes to take a nap!
13. Can you include the super awesome mod xyz?
This ROM is meant to be an optimized stock ROM with some important mods in AROMA (APM, %battery etc). Please note that adding more mods also adds possibility for bugs, and increases the size of the ROM.zip
14. Do I need to update my radio/firmware to flash the ROM?
It is not needed. You can do it if you want to. Newer radios/firmwares can improve signal, bluetooth, WiFi... refer to the following thread for more information: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2182823
15. Does the ROM include radio/firmware/hboot...?
16. But I really, really want to install firmware! How to do it?
Check the awesome work by vomer and makbil here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=24958 and here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=25330 . Please remember, that this is NOT the firmware thread. You better ask questions related to it in the corresponding thread.
17. My Facebook app lags. How to make it smooth again?
Enable Force GPU rendering in Settings -> Devoloper Options -> Advanced
18. Before I flashed the ROM my phone's speakers were louder. How can I fix it?
This change was made by HTC. It has nothing to do with AR HD. It may change in the future again.
19. How can I remove Kids menu?
Install either APM mod or use the xposed framework and MoDaCo Toolkit. It has a mod in it for removing the Kids menu from APM. Xposed is available in AROMA, MoDaCo Toolkit is a seperate download. For removing the actual app, you can use TitaniumBackup and use it's function to remove system apps.
20. My WiFi passwords aren't stored anymore. How can I fix this?
You have probably selected the AT&T option in AROMA. For a quick fix reflash the ROM, select international version (no wipe needed, please see FAQ 7 for a note about signal bars when using the international version on AT&T)
21. How do I remove the power saver notification?
You can use xposed+MoDaCo toolkit or the following App for that: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ersaverdisable
22. How can I get larger MMS sizes without doing a full wipe?
Please check the guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=24137
23. How can I change the order of EQS?
Please check the guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=25496
24. I have an error about UID. How can I fix it??
Please look in the folder /data/data/. If you have something from Quadrant there delete it. If that didn't help checl /data/system/uiderrors.txt. You may need to delete the quadrant folder from recovery.
25. My issue is not mentioned here and/or my phone is still not working after trying to recover. What should I do?
You are always free to post in this thread or join IRC. You will find helpful members who will support you in solving your problem.

General FAQ
Q 1: After flashing Android Revolution HD my battery drains much faster. What can I do?
A: Please charge your battery to 100%, boot your device in ClockworkMod Recovery and go to Advanced ---> Wipe Battery Stats. Also see Question 7.
Also please read this ---> [GUIDE] Enlarge your battery life : an attempt to fix the battery drain
And this ---> [How to] Brilliant Battery Life 100% working!
For more details about wiping battery stats please read this
Q 2: My Premium Navigation doesn't work correctly. What should I do?
A: Your Premium Navigation may not work correctly for many reasons. Most of them are not ROM related. You can try the following things:
- reinstall your Locations under "Settings" ---> "Locations"
- remove /sdcard/.data/navigator/Data/Temporary from your SD card
- re-download Google Maps from the Android Market
- clear data from Google Maps in system software management

Q 3: When recording HD video, the playback of the clip keeps freezing. How to fix it?
A: This is probably SD card problem. Format your SD card (FAT32 recommended) to gain silky smooth playback.
Q 4: After I reboot my device, mp3 ring-tone is back to default. What should I do?
A: Go to Ringtones > Menu > More Ringtones > Create new ringtone > Select the one you want (Thanks to kill4l)

Q 5: Is there any alternative for SetCPU? I think it slows downy my phone.
A: You can application called No-frills. Remember to check "Allow on boot" option.
Q 6: After flashing Android Revolution HD my SD card is being mounted as ready only. What should I do?
A: Connect your SD card to your PC and do defragmentation process. If you still have some problems with SD card, please read this.
Mac users can use the repair function of the MacOS disk utility to solve the read only problem (Thanks to Calimero1205).

Q 7: My CPU load is all the time nearly 100% and in most part it's used by system. What is the reason of that high CPU usage and how can I fix it?
A: Delete your htcsense.com account. It takes A LOT of your battery and CPU usage.
Q 8: Do I need to wipe data partition when upgrading from old version of Android Revolution HD?
A: I always recommend wiping data partition but it's absolutely necessary only if I mention that in the changelog. But normally you can live without it.
Wipe data partition if you experience any issues.

Q 9: I have some strange issues with my ROM that nobody reported before. What should I do in first place?
A: In first place you should check, if the MD5 Checksum is correct. Then flash ROM again and see if the issue is gone. A lot of strange issues can be solved this way.
Q 10: I had SetCPU installed on Android Revolution HD, then I flashed new version of AR HD and SetCPU doesn't work any more. How to fix it?
A: Please reinstall SetCPU.

Q 11: I can't send/receive MMS or I can't connect with mobile data connection. How can I fix it?
A: Please check your MMS settings or mobile data connection APN settings.
Q 12: My phone got random freezes or reboots. How can I fix it?
A: Every CPU is different. It seems that your CPU doesn't like OC or UV (undervolt). Set your CPU to default 1GHz.
If it doesn't help, then you need to flash default kernel from the second post.

Q 13: When I listen to music from HTC stock player it accidentally pauses for short time and then keep playing.
A: Turn OFF fastboot in settings.
Q 14: My GPS signal is very weak or GPS is not working at all. How can I fix it?
A: There are some solutions:
1. You can download and install FasterFix to improve your signal strength.
2. You can download and install GPS Status & Toolbox to manage your GPS settings.
3. Turn off "Fast boot" under "Settings" ---> "Power" and reboot your phone.
4. Read this, this, this & this
5. [Trick] Speed Up Satelite Fix for GPS on Android

Q 15: My clock/weather widget doesn't show my location. How can I fix it?
A: Please clear data from Google Maps, Clock Widget, Weather, HTC weather sync provider and Weather Provider.
Q 16: My Quadrant score is not as high as on different ROM. What does it mean?
A: It means absolutely nothing. Benchmarks on Android System are more or less lottery and they are not showing the real system performance.
There are many settings that can force Quadrant to show more then 3000 points but it's faked performance, that actually can slow down your phone in some circumstances.
What I always emphasize is a real performance, the one you can feel under your fingers. Remember that I/O has some limit and surpassing it shows just a numbers without true ratio.
Also keep in mind that Quadrant has support for Android Gingerbread only in version 1.1.7 and higher.

Q 17: I have com.htc.bgc process force close few times a day. How can I fix it?
A: It's because you have removed HtcTwitter.apk (HTC Twitter application). Please restore it.
Q 18: My screen-lock sound and keypad sound while dialing numbers is very low. How can I fix it?
A: Download "Quick Settings" application from Android Market and check system volume slider.

Q 19: When I open up the call screen (where I see the recent calls and callers), the calls won't appear in the list. What to do?
A: Probably you are using 3rd party launcher. Remove the dialer shortcut and re-add it.
Q 20: My Wi-Fi doesn't reconnect automatically after boot. How to fix it?
A: Disable fastboot in settings or check this solution.

You think you're addicted from flashing ROMs, checking forum the whole day and you feel like "Android" should be your second name? Well, here's something for fun

All mods listed in this post were reported working at the time they were added. I can't guarantee that future versions work though.
Flash all mods at your own risk! Be sure to make a nandroid backup before flashing or have the ROM at hand to re-flash it if anything goes wrong.

I'll update this post as often as I can and whenever time allows it.
If some links don't work or you found something which is worth being added, please send me a PM.
Keeping this up to date can be very time consuming job, every bit of help is really appreciated!
