Here is a basic ROM based on the new Sensation 2.3.5 leaked RUU

- Based on HTC Sensation 2.08.401.1 RUU
- Updated Market apps to latest versions and moved them to /data/app for easy removal if not wanted
- Removed HTC 'Snooping' apps
- Deodexed
- Rooted (SuperUser 3.0.7 & latest binary) <---NEW
- Added BusyBox
- Added init.d support
- Added Advanced Power Menu (Thanks baadnewz)
- Added XL 4x1 Clock widget (see screenshot below - thanks V6-Maniac) <---NEW
- Added a new hosts file
- Added the new Market (3.3.12) <---NEW
- Removed the boot sound
- Added ability to use your own boot animation - just copy the bootanimation.zip to /data/local <---NEW
- A few build.prop tweaks
- Changed the build.prop footprint to that of the XE RUU so Market apps should show correctly

- T-Mobile US Users: I've made no additions regarding WiFi calling or MMS so bare this in mind before you complain ;)

- Stock kernel - 2.6.35.13-gc35910f [email protected] #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Sep 23 17:21:03 CST 2011

Other than that it's 100% stock. CPU runs at 1.2GHz (1188MHz)

This ROM is NOT built for speed - it's not a custom ROM in the same vein as ARHD or InsertCoin. If you want performance, go for them. This ROM is for those who want a stock experience with a few bits tweaked

I recommend the radio from the XE RUU if you're in the UK BUT I've no idea how it will work with US/other EU handsets. The RIL in this ROM is matched to the XE Radio

Radio: 10.58.9035.00U_10.15.9035.02_2 - md5: 722549B642A1374964798CC82100855E

ROM: 2.08.401.1 FINAL - md5: 69E34830EFDDB1053F922012F23E8EA8

FULL wipe required before use if coming from a different/stock ROM, and I recommend using the Super Wipe script from the Revolution HD thread before flashing this ROM. If coming from a previous version of this ROM just clear cache/dalvik cache AFTER flashing the ROM and then reboot

There is no further support from me, this is just to let people use it. If you can't see something mentioned, it means it's not there. Simple as that

Add-Ons:

HTC Amaze Camera - Here a mod to upgrade the stock Camera to the one from the HTC Amaze. I'd recommend it as it's a much better app. Also includes the newer Gallery app which categorizes the photos depending on the mode used to take them. Mod courtesy of CdTDroiD/baadnewz (stock kernel required):

Extended Quick Settings - This mod adds more options to the 'Quick Settings' in the notification area. Thanks to baadnewz for this one:

'Beats Audio' Mod - This adds (or should add) the 'Beats by Dre' mod to the phone (Needs testing). Yet again, baadnewz to the rescue on this mod:

'HTC Keyboard with Arrows' Mod - adds the HTC keyboard but with arrows to make it easy to edit text. Thanks to Steve0007 for this mod:

Thanks for the ROM. Got a question for you. Did you make the same tweaks for this rom as you did with the Sensation XE 1.73.401.2? With that XE rom i got awesome battery life and wondering if i should switch to this one.

Which one is better??

Yep, same tweaks. Seem to work well so should do the same here. I'm on 77% as we speak from 7:15am this morning but that is with very light use as I don't use my phone much when at work

Leak in 2.3.5 this is an official version or only one leak ?!

Hi, very interested in making this my first customised ROM for my brand new, newly hacked and rooted Sensation! I have a couple of questions:

1. Regarding the Hosts file, am I safe to delete everything in it bar '127.0.0.1 localhost', save the zip and then flash as normal (presumably with verification off as it would probably now fail the checksum)? The reason is that many video streaming sites I use, like 4OD, depend on having video adverts load, or else they won't finish and you won't be able to watch the video you want. I've seen this before when using Roms which included Adfree, but because they included the full app I was able to go in and revert the hosts file. Here, it seems to be missing from the zip.

2. Am I okay to flash the battery with percentages mod found in your Sensation XE thread? Or will it not work on this Rom? Is it because it isn't deodexed?

Thanks in advance!

Dave.

    This is just a quick note that I'll be moving to the Galaxy Nexus forum having upgraded to one this evening.

    I'll still be about and make ROMs for the Sensation when new RUUs are about as I'll still have my Senny but I thought I'd say a BIG thank you to everyone who's helped me out and for the support of the users on here :D

    No I can't. As per my OP, I'm NOT adding anything that's not in the ROM. Do it yourself
