This thread is about OpenSensation and not about my kernel!!

I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
Known Bugs / Fixes
  • MHL doesn't works as expected
  • Bluetooth may not work perfectly on every device
  • Not compatible with SuperWipe.zip
    • Use 4EXT's full-wipe function
  • Your bug is not listed here?
Difference between OpenSensation and CyanogenMod
  • we have 1080p, they don’t
  • we have OTA Updates, they don’t
  • we have PDroid patches included, they don’t
  • we have removed RomManger and Terminal Emulator (bloatware, still available in Play Store)
USB-OTG
The USB-OTG stuff is a little bit tricky. It looks like some Sensations have a self powered USB Host port which allows them to use an USB-Stick without external power. But most Sensation don’t have it.
You need
  • USB-OTG y-cable (like this)
    • (or a normal USB-OTG cable if your attached device has it’s own power supply)
  • in case you’re using an USB-OTG y-cable you need an external power supply
    • I recommend you a mobile battery with a female USB-Port
This ROM will mount the first partition of your attached device (fat32 & ntfs only!) to /mnt/usbdisk. If you wan’t to use more partitions/devices I recommend you to use Chainfire’s StickMount App
Requirements
  • HTC Sensation (XE and 4G sould work, too)
  • custom Recovery (I recommend 4EXT)
  • 3.32 or 3.33 Firmware (ROM is tested with 3.32 firmware, so use 3.33 at your own risk!)
  • S-OFF (ROM should work without S-OFF, but you might need 4EXT’s SmartFlash to properly flash the boot.img)
  • SDCard
Download
FAQ
  • Can we have XYZ from Sense?
    • NO!
  • “Is there a way to have FM Radio?”
    • No, there is no way to build it from source. Try Spirit FM.

It's cm9 but the device tree may be a little different then the one kmobs is using, but this is the closest to it I believe. I compiled a build from his tree two nights ago. hardware acceleration works but my audio and camera didn't quite work. vorbeth did help me figure it out and it's working now

Vorbeth, thanks for this, can you provide us also with flashable rom?

I will upload a test (pre-alpha) build tonight, just to gage the reaction of people, but will not provide support for it.
The aim here is to work on source fixes, so that eventually any developer can quickly build AOSP/CM9 and know that thing's will work.

    Removed as TamCore now has OP

    Small update for you all.
    I'm going to be stopping working on OS. Waiting 190 minutes for each compile just to test a small fix is getting too much.

    I thank all those that previously donated, I was able to get a used q6600 PC, however that didn't last and the CPU fried. (Probably why I got it cheap was that is was on it's way out)

    I've asked TamCore if he will take over on OpenSensation.

    I have enjoyed the time I spent in doing this, however with work I don't have time to work on this during a week now, as the last few updates have shown working on it during the week, staying up while it compiles results in a few bug's.

    The repo's as they are now do suffer from audio routing and I will try to re-port the routing fix over the next few day's, but that will be my last contribution.

    What's the current status of LPA?

    Sent from my HTC Sensation using XDA

    In a few hours after I compile, it will be enabled & audio routing band-aided

    leaving just bluetooth, mhl, full HW acceleration & a few wakelock issues to be fixed.

    Hell, I started out on this laptop, so may as well finish on it.
    i'll stick around continuing to work on this for a while yet.

    Guess I just got that pissed off waiting one night I thought "f**k it"

    I will continue until such a point that cm and my repos have exactly the same functions.
