This is a port of the leaked ROM from the HTC Sensation (new Sense 3.0 device), for the G2/DZ. I have to emphasize, this ROM is far from usable and is largely intended for consumption by other developers. The reason is that the Sensation is a qHD device (960x540 resolution), where our G2/DZs are WVGA. All the alignment is off to the point where key UI elements are frequently off the screen.

Notes about the changes:

- Full wipe of data is REQUIRED prior installing the ROM.
- /system/app relocated to /data/system.app and symlinked back (to make it fit).
- Uses select libs/bins from the Gingerbread leak for G2/DZ (2.30.405.1)
- Kernel 2.6.35.10 from the Gingerbread leak for G2/DZ.
- Added my modded Superuser.
- Removed HTC's Lockscreen (you simply cannot unlock with it in place).

Again, substantial work will be required to make this usable. Please do not download it unless you intend to: a) just tinker with it for fun, b) to start working on adjusting the images and layout for our resolution.

They have it (alpha) on the Desire HD ... I posted the link in the Sensation Dev thread.

If that is WVGA, isn't there a way to pull their resolution and use it for the Vision?

They're in the same boat right now. If it gets fixed on any device, we can pull the changes over easily.

First off...Dude thanks for jumping on this so soon....I think the Sensation is the only thing in the market out or coming out, that would make me even consider dropping my G2. It seems like a sweet piece of hardware, and that Sense ROM looks awesome! (and I am not a big sense fan, yet!)

Wold LCD Density have anything to do with this....LCD Density is akin to resolution on a reg monitor, so could you modify LCD to get more "surface area"?

Unfortunately no, the density doesn't help at all. That's the first thing I tried after booting the ROM.

Rmk, does the lockscreen not work because of the qhd? You're a great dev man. Can we expect some future updates with this?

the lock screen is the sliding tab i was hoping it was the original sensation lock screen but hey its only the first port i can wait, but the cool thing is that once u unlock it, it does the carousel spin and goes to the homescreen, its cool :)
