This is a little mod I did for @TeeJay3800 on Twitter (I believe it is the same for here on the forums), that tries to capture the look of the HTC Sense launcher.

Attached you will find a .zip. If you unzip you should be presented with:
Sources.zip
Launcher
-----SenseLauncherDonut.apk (Install if using Donut)
-----SenseLauncher.apk (Install if using 2.x)
Themes
-----SenseOld.apk (Screenshot below)
-----SenseHero.apk (Screenshot below)
-----Sense.apk (Pretty much a theme to add Sense Icons, screenshot below)



The only requirement for this is that you do NOT have the market version of ADW installed.


I think it goes without saying that regular ADW.Themes will NOT look correct with this modded launcher. However, included in the Sources.zip are the sources to my themes, I look forward to what you guys come up with.

Credits: Klinster, Anderwebs, HTC, TeeJay3800, Binary100100, Google, Cyanogen, Manup456, and I'm sure in some obscure way that I should thank Antoine Dodson.

Glad to see you're finally posting this on XDA!

For anyone who wants to complete the Sense look and doesn't already know how, you'll want:

- Community Hero Mix (system theme)

- Weather & Toggle Widget with Forecast Addon and H7C Clock skin/H7C Weather skin

When all is said and done, your home screen will be an exact clone of HTC Sense for MDPI devices. Nice job JAguirre!

As the title says, this is MDPI-only (as of right now, hope to get HDPI done when I have free time).

To use, download the .zip and extract. Inside you will find four items.

Install the Sense.apk (This is the theme that will give Sense icons, it is not required if you prefer whatever icons you are already using).

Install or push the ADWLauncher.apk. The way I've been doing it is by using

Code:
adb install -r /path/to/ADWLauncher.apk

or

adb push /path/to/ADWLauncher.apk /system/app/
However, a simple install from the phone /should/ just work.

With the adw_settings.xml and adb_backup.db, place them on the root of your sdcard and use ADW's Restore feature to import them (I'm sure there is an easier way, but I fail).


I think it goes without saying that regular ADW.Themes will NOT look correct with this modded launcher.

Of course it has to be rooted, it involves pushing something to /system partition which requieres root.
