This is a project that aims for that good 'ol speed and stability our Hero had when it was struttin' his a&% on an android version older than my grandmother. This rom contains Android 2.1 with, according to Wikipedia - Original Sense!

General Info: Sense UI is based on the UI for Windows mobile called Touch FLO 3D which made his debut back in 2008 on a HTC Touch Diamond.

Please keep in mind that some of the applications may not work *correctly* (facebook for sense, peep etc.) hence they are too old and the API-s have changed in the meantime.


The beauty of sense (talking about this particular sense version) nowadays is fading away. The status bar header (where your carrier name is written) is too big, the colors are too faded etc. But I'm aiming for speed and stability. The visual look was not forgotten. I personally don't like the stock Sense UI as it was back in 2009/2010 and I've decided to include this theme right here. Thanks to L0cke for that!

The version of the android 2.1 is - 3.32.405.1 - which is in my opinion the smoothest and fastest. Tried playing with 3.36.xxx version - it was a no go for me.


What I'm getting by installing this

Code:
Android 2.1 - 3.32.405.1 with SenseUI
Flykernel 13
[B]Super User 3.0.7 with 3.0.3 binaries[/B
Zip-alligned all the apps
Deodexed
Internal task killer retweaked
Tuned SD card I/O
Fine Tuned the CPU
A2SD
/data/app compatibility
Disabled garbage collector for smooth scrolling
Forced kernel to boot at 356-614 mhz
Sqlite 3 optimized
Ad free device - no need for other apps from the market
GPS.conf for Europe with very small lockup time on the satelites
BONUS

Code:
Advanced power menu
Desire lockscreen (slides only the lock without the picture)
Beautiful Weather animations
Flip clock (yes, it flips)
Analog clocks with second hand that moves (it is a little buggy but that's the way it is)
Rosie themed
XdaICS inverted app
Explorer (as in root explorer)
Social crap (facebook, peep, twitter, friendstream etc.)
Some htc widgets - messages, music, people, photo frame etc)


I would like to say a sincere "Thank you" to the following people/team:


Code:
Team Villain
Pulser2g
Ninpo
Raider X
^ For Villainrom 10/12/13 - the ones that got me into flashing back in 2009.
Code:
L0cke for this
AngelDeath for this
AndroidON for this
dsixda for this
erasmusx for this
Me for this

Anyone who have been forgotten, please forgive me!


Warning: First boot might take up to 2 minutes to complete. Don't worry, there is nothing wrong with your device. Dalvik is dexopting all the apps and frameworks and it moves quite slow. Sit back and relax until it is fully booted.
Thank you!

This looks great! Would you be able to use .png's from the sense 4 from to make this look better? I did it a while back with heroinne++ for my own daily rom but can't find the rom on my computer now :/

i might do it but takes a lot of time and effort... also you need to resize them..
