Told you guys I would be back This is just the beginning for me!

So I've made an optimized build of Sense 3.6 for you guys, and since I'm also a major space nerd, I've decided this ROM will be named after various interstellar objects for the different builds, along with facts about the chosen interstellar object.



I'm sure everyone is familiar with the scene in Star Wars with two setting suns. This will be a reality for us on Earth anytime within the next one million years, thanks to the star Betelgeuse. It's a Red Supergiant star located approximately 642.5 light years away from the Solar System, and it's due to go Supernova within the next million years. It could happen in our lifetime, or not. But when it does happen, the explosion will be so violent and powerful it will look like a second sun has appeared in the sky for a period of approximately two weeks. It may or may not outshine our Sun but it will be exceptionally bright. This would be a monumental moment of history to observe! Nights on Earth would be just as bright as the daytime thanks to the exploding star. Even though the explosion will light up the night, 99% of the energy exposed to us and the Earth is released in neutrinos that will pass through our bodies and through the Earth with absolutely no harm done whatsoever. This star is so big, if it were at the center of our solar system, it would engulf all of the inner planets, along with the Asteroid belt.


So you want to know what's so good about this particular ROM when there's already ARHD and We Want Ics? Well here you go-

Main Features -
- Based on latest 4.14.405.2 RUU
- Memory tweaks for optimal performance
- Exceptionally smooth performance even with stock HTC kernel at 1GHz
- EXT4 File system for increased performance

- Useful pre-installed apps such as - ESFileExplorer, SuperSU, No-Frills CPU control, itandy's Sense Lockscreen Shortcut Provider(Please follow instructions in thread on how to use app properly), Auto-Rotate toggle app activated by holding Search button. HTC Notes has also been added.
- Enabled GPU UI rendering
- Almost Project Butter tweaks for increased reponsiveness and smoothness
- Camera quality tweaks
- Build.prop tweaks for increased performance
- AROMA installer for a nice installation
- Support for BlackRose and Revolutionary HBOOT
- More and more mods coming each day, thanks to the great users! All mods are in 2nd post.

Where's this ROM going in the future? There won't be much updates after this, except for updating to a new base RUU or for bug fixes/new features. I'm going to be focusing on my upcoming CM9 here pretty soon. Sometime in the future, I may also be porting Blackout tweaks to this ROM, so you would have a choice between blackout or leedroid tweaks.

If there are any themer's out there that would like to give me a hand I would really appreciate it. I wanted to theme Sense to have more black and red highlights.. not overpowering but enough to make it feel "darker". I tried theme-ing Sense myself, and my efforts looked about equal to a Grade 2's paint project. My mind operates on a logical basis, not a creative basis so I prefer sticking to coding and not touching image files..

Installation instructions - Blackrose HBOOT 2.02 recommended. NOTE - Support for Revolutionary HBOOT has been added.
NOTE- If your coming from a previous version of my ROM, you should be able to flash this over top and retain your data.
- Reboot into recovery
- Wipe data/factory reset
- Wipe all partitions (Excluding SD card)
- Flash "V2.0-The_Second_Sun.zip"
- Reboot and enjoy! (Be patient, first boot will take a while)

Installation instructions for Blackrose PG32IMG.zip
- Place on root of your sdcard
- Reboot into bootloader and it should be found automatically
- Apply the update

Installation instructions for XS-ICS 2.2
- Flash the ROM
- Reboot and let the ROM settle for a few minutes
- Reboot into recovery and flash kernel
Using those steps, you should avoid the wifi error. If not just push bcm4329.ko(found in kernel package) into /system/lib/modules.

I recommend using the following frequencies if your using a kernel that supports OC -
1.402GHz Max
368MHz Min
SmartAssV2 governor
noop scheduler


I get amazing battery life even though my settings are very performance biased.

V2.5 is live! Mods are still compatible with the new version, and I would recommend a full wipe before installation, but you don't have to if you want to keep your data. If you find a bug, make sure to let me know whether you wiped with installation or not, as the new base may cause problems without a wipe.

Previous Versions and Facts

Download Link - V1.5-SuperMassive_BlackHole
Download Link - V1.0-SuperMassive_BlackHole

Supermassive black holes reside in the heart of most, if not all galaxies in the Universe. We have our very own supermassive black hole in the Milky way, called Sagittarius A*. Supermassive black holes have a mass ranging anywhere from hundreds of thousands, to billions of Solar Masses. Every black hole in the galaxy has what's called an "Event Horizon" which is the point of no-return for every black hole. Even light, the fastest moving energy(particles? not sure) can't escape the Event Horizon of a black hole. If a person were to go into an Event Horizon, the tidal forces would be so powerful that one would be "Spaghettified" and stretched into a long, thin band of human matter. Let's assume this astronaut went in head first, feet behind him. The "spaghettification" happens due to the massive difference in gravitational pull his head would feel compared to his feet, the black hole's central singularity has such a strong gravitational pull that it pulls, stretches, and elongates any matter falling in.

Oddly enough, the tidal forces at a Supermassive black hole's event horizon would not be as powerful as a regular interstellar black hole. This is because as a black hole grows in mass, it loses density and becomes bigger, and the Event Horizon would be significantly further away from the central singularity (which is what generates the gravitational pull) as a result. If one were to go into the Event Horizon of a supermassive black hole, you might live long enough to get a glance inside of the black hole's Event Horizon and see something nothing like you've ever seen before. The possibilities of what one might see are unknown, as obviously nothing can go inside the Event Horizon and live to tell the tale (Or in the case of an automated satellite, all forms of communication would be pulled back into the black hole and never escape.)

Cool, I'll test it out If it's stable enough, then I will include it as the default kernel in the next release in a couple of days.

Speaking of which, anyone know how this is done? I know you need to mod android.policy and framework-res.apk, I'm just not sure which particular file needs to be changed.

Edit: Wait a minute, wtf! Why does the GB style recent apps pop up instead of the new ICS style? I've NEVER seen this happen on a Sense 3.6 ROM before.
