All-in-one Patch for Missing Sense Apps, Widgets, and Plugins

Hello everyone :)
The new HTC 10 is marvelous, and Sense 8 is really good and smooth.
As you all should know, Sense 8 is much cleaner and more close to stock Android, HTC removed tons of goodies from the old Sense.
Some of them are available on the Play Store, so it should be no problems..... but.....
How about those which cannot be downloaded :confused::confused:

To be honest, I miss them a lot, and I believe many of you do to.
There are installable apks available, but most of them are outdated/modified, also downloading them one-by-one is a pain.
I collected all old Sense parts from our Sense 8 M8 port and packed all of them into an Aroma Installer flashable zip.
Here are the list of apps included in the package, all of them are selectable within the Aroma menu:
Code:
--Apps--
HMS_Gallery_GP2
HMS_Music_GP
HTC_IME
*IMEHWRPenPower
*IMEMurasuIndic
*IMEMurasuViet
*IME_TP_Basic
*IME_TP_ValueAdd
HTC Car
*HtcCarGps
*Automotive_Home
*Automotive_Traffic

--Widgets--
CalculatorWidget
HtcAutoRotateWidget
HtcBackgroundDataWidget
HtcProfilesWidget
HtcRingtoneWidget
HtcScreenBrightnessWidget
HtcScreenTimeoutWidget
HtcSyncWidget
HtcBtWidget
HtcCalendarWidgets
HtcContactWidgets
HtcDataRoamingWidget
HtcDataStripWidget
HtcHotspotWidget
HtcMobileNetworkWidget
HtcMusicWidget
HtcWiFiWidget

--Plugins--
Facebook_Plugin
Instagram_SN_Plugin
Tencent_Wechat_FSPlugin
And the following is the list that is downloadable from Play Store and not pre-loaded:
Code:
HTC Internet (Browser)
HTC Calendar
HTC File Manager
HTC Tasks
HTC Scribble
HTC Power to Give
HTC Backup (Discontinued in Marshmallow)
Changelog
v1.1:
Add HTC Car
Update HTC Gallery
Add a note for Calendar Widget​
v1.0:
Initial release​

Downloads

Enjoy :)

I assume the radio app from M8 doesn't work?
It's unclear yet.

SD820 has the capability in the SoC but the 10 firmware and kernel may not support FM radio as well as the appropriate missing libs for it to function.

Once there are more devices in hands there will be more information.

Since you mention Facebook and Instagram, combined with seeing mention of them elsewhere in the forums...

Am I to understand that Blinkfeed, out of the box on the 10, won't support Facebook and Instagram without your file? If I'm off-base, please tell me.

Yes, it is not included by default. You have to manually install it.

So just installing Facebook and Instagram (or even Twitter) off of the Play store isn't enough?

For us to have full functionality of Blinkfeed, we have to choose between getting updates and having to flash TWRP + your mod?

nope...installing facebook & instagram only installs the actual app, not the blinkfeed plugins...twitter works out of the box for blinkfeed

u don't have to be modded/rooted to install these plugins, just enable unknown sources, copy the apks to the phone & install...I posted the facebook & instagram plugins here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=66377247&postcount=41801

Once you install let's say HTC Music, will it give you updates from the playstore? Because I did the same on A9 but never got updates
No it won't. What you can see on Play Store is controlled by files in /system/etc/permissions.

BTW, the music app is never available on the Play Store at any time.

Thanks!
So when Leedroid or other dev will do a rom for 10 he can mod something in the /system/etc/permissions so we get updates :good:

Yes, you're right. But now the problem is Gallery App keep force closing and Music App showed "App is not installed" message.
Probably they are priv-apps and I don't know a way to install such apps without root..
Do you have the HTC 10? Can you please confirm that all HTC Calendar's widgets are getting installed from the Play Store?

This is why I packed it to install them in system. I've done no modifications to the apps, so they have to be installed into the system with proper libraries.

The HTC Calendar is available on Play Store (I listed in OP), but not the widgets. That's why I also included them in my pack.

That's sounds very odd. Usually an app installs its widgets build in. Why is it different in this case? There are no widgets with the Google play app at all?
