Welcome to SentinelROM Sense Edition for HTC One - M7.

This ROM is compatible with the following models: International GSM/LTE (UL), International GSM (U), all U.S. carriers (apart from Sprint)

SentinelROM is one of the most popular ROMs for Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Nexus 4,HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy SII, Samsung Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note 2, and after weeks of hard work and optimisation, I am happy to release it for HTC One - M7.

I recently purchased a HTC One for the sole purpose of developing ROMs for it, so I look forward to growing and developing the ROM with your input over time. the ROM will go in whatever direction you guys, the users decide. I regularly post polls on my Facebook page to gauge interest in new features, UI design, etc, so make sure you follow us on Facebook to have your say!

details.png


This ROM has been built to enhance the stock HTC Sense 5 experience, with faster gaming and web browsing performance (no choppyness in Chrome too!) and best of all, extreme battery life.

Countless hours have been spent making tweaks to settings to squeeze the most performance I can find out of this ROM while still providing excellent battery life and without the dangers of overclocking and kernel level tweaking.

I've also cleaned up the UI a lot. So those of you who love the look and feel of an AOSP ROM, but with HTC Sense 5 features, this is for you!

installation.png


If installing for the first time:

To install this ROM you will need to have an HTC-DEV Unlocked or S-OFF bootloader and a custom Recovery such as TWRP or ClockWorkMod installed.

  1. Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
  2. Boot into your custom recovery
  3. Back up your stock ROM
  4. Enter custom recovery
  5. Factory Reset and wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
  6. Format System Partition
  7. Install the ROM
  8. Follow the AROMA Installer to customise your installation
  9. Reboot. First boot can take up to 5 minutes.

    NOTE: You should see the SentinelROM boot screen within 15 seconds of booting apst the bootloader. If the initial boot hangs on a black screen, hold down the power button for 10 seconds to reboot.

If upgrading from a previous version of this ROM, read the instructions provided in the changelog in post 2.

Note: Use of titanium backup to restore apps and data from another ROM is not recommended, and is the source of 90% of user issues, especially when it comes to battery life. Do so at your own risk.

You may flash other kernels as you wish via recovery. Remember to also flash the correct libraries for any 3rd party kernels. Instructions will be given by the Kernel author.

Thanks mate. I wasn't originally intending to do a Sense ROM for HTC One, but I've been so impressed by it so far that I decided to give it a shot.

I'm also working on releasing my usual CyanogenMod based SentinelROM for this device and hope to release very soon.

I believe this is currently the best phone on the market and am very excited to be a part of the action. Especailly with some already very well established Sense ROMs like ARHD and Trick floating around.

Enjoy the ROM :)

Htc has improved Sense a lot.. So now we don't have to turn to any derivate of Aosp for speed and usability.. Stock rom can be modified to be damn fast too :)

We will wait for the original HTC Nexus experience to use it as a good base with good kernel and drivers to make the perfect Aosp.. until then, we kick some sense into ONE ;)

this is what I have been wanting for, a mix of AOSP and Sense 5. Will flash it on my device and see how it's going.
Just a little request is that can you add loud mod (xloud, or something similar) as option? I kinda miss the loudness on InsertCoin and Rayglobe

Well........ Yesterday I'd convinced myself to stick with TrickDroid after trying all other sense Roms, but wake up to discover Sentinel Rom. Thought I'd give it a go, and WOW. What a great Rom. Well done mate and thank you. Pie control is a seriously good and very handy touch too! Making app navigation etc much easier! For me, this is by far the smoothest Rom (battery life is yet to be tested over the next few days). There's obviously other great Roms out there too; TrickDroid, ARHD, etc, but honestly guys......... I would recommend giving this bad boy a shot. Cheers Dev, and keep up the good work.

No worries!

Pie controls works really well if you set it to "bottom" and slide your finger up from the HTC logo beneath the screen, like in the screenshot in the OP.

How are you guys finding it visually so far?

Yeah already set I up from the HTC logo, so it works like the logo to menu on the old 1.29 custom kernels. Yet with the bonus of added extras. Visuals are nice too, especially on the EPM. Nice touch on the app draw button too. Would like EPM style on EQS in future updates if possible.

Yeah. I wanted to gauge the response to my logos in the EPM before adding similar to the EQS. I'll probably go ahead and do that for the next release. :)

Yeah do it lol. One thing I have noticed, is that the free ram on the pie status info seems to be wrong. It's saying I only have 80mb free but all in one toolbox is saying over 600mb? Only a small thing that doesn't really matter, but you know what some people can be like with their ocd lol.

    It's running mind blowingly fast on my device. I can't wait to release it, but I want to wait a little while until I've had a chance to fully test everything and make some how-to videos.

    I'm not rushing it. I want it to be perfect as can be.

    I just updated my firmware to the new 2.24 that was released overnight.

    SentinelROM Sense Edition v3.00 (2.24 base) is running nicely on my phone so far, but I still have more things to do before it's ready for release. I'm re-doing the mod structure so it might be a while yet.
