How do you guys like it? I'm still tempted to go bareback and toss sense out. I gave it a shot, awesome job guys, but don't like how it wants to stuff facebook in my face all the time. If there is a way to reorganize the main page I haven't seen it. Ended up nandroiding back to meanbean 3.09 for now. Runs slick as glass. If I download and install the bareback superlte does that include the camera drivers so there is no loss in quality/functionality?

Also what is svn lol. I just downloaded the sense 5 port directly to my phone and flashed it, s-off, but I keep reading Bout svn. Is that update software? With meanbean I just used the ota updater.

Sorry kinda new

Re: Sense 5 opinions
I absolutely love it.

I don't use Facebook either, so I froze it using app quarantine from the play store and it doesn't pop up anywhere anymore.

Svn is a way to get the latest updates without having to download the whole file. It downloads only the parts that have been updated reducing download time.

You also get downloads in advance.

Switching main screen is in the pinch on home screen widgets layout. You hold the screen you want selected in that window and drag it to main.

I love sense 5. Smoothest ROM I've ever had, especially with the arc reactor kernel.

I currently also have a 7582 quadrant score because of the ROM.

Turtlesvn is a svn client (I think that's its name) from there follow the thread listed about svn to get it set up.

I will never go back to sense 4.5 or aosp, they are farrrrr behind sense 5 and I know when you get it figured out you will agree.


Have fun!

Also for the camera. Freeze it an app quarantine. Use extrims camera from themes and apps. Gives you sense 4.5 camera back until camera is fully functional.

Also. I haven't tested this as I'm still playing with sense 5 it should work tho

Re: Sense 5 opinions
svn is a version control system that developers use to check in their code. It allows other devs to pull the changes down to their machines to make sure they're working with the latest files. The sense 5 repository is public, so anyone can pull down the files needed to flash the rom, but it's still intended more for the developers.

I love Sense 5. Personally, I think it's the best thing to happen to Sense. It feels like Cyanogenmod and HTC had a baby. It's zippy, it's smart, it's gorgeous to look at, and it's simple (For some people, too simple lol http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-se...le-complicated )

Re: Sense 5 opinions
Link feed is pretty neat I have to say. I can't wait for a working gallery so I can see in person how the zoe moments work. And I can't wait to see how the devs theme it.

Thumbs up
I think it's the best version of sense yet. I hate sense and only used it when I needed to do something that wasn't working in AOSP, AOKP, etc. Sense 5 is actually very handy and flexible. The development of the port seems to be coming along very nicely and my hat's of to all of them!

Also, igotlostintampa has done a kicka$$ job of putting together a great FAQ that has helped me greatly in getting this to be a DD.

Re: Sense 5 opinions
I definitely like it. My only complaint is I can't set blink feed as a "middle" panel for a home screen with pages to the left and right of it.

Re: Sense 5 opinions
Sense 5 is the first OEM skin I've ever used that I feel is as cohesive and attractive as stock Android. It's better than Touchwiz, better than not-Blur, better than Optimus UI, and most importantly, WAY better than any prior version of Sense. I think I've finally found an AOSP replacement. I was actually planning to buy an Optimus G on eBay and sell this phone, but Sense 5 has convinced me to stick with the Evo. Using Arc Reactor kernel 0.41 (1.7) along with Sense 5, this phone is pretty close to the G performance-wise despite only having 2 CPU cores.
