It looks like it has been a week filled with updates for everyone. Some official and some, well, not so official. HTC seems to be dead last in terms of updating devices officially to ICS, and we believe that the main culprit of all this is none other than Sense 4.0—the newest iteration of HTC’s unique UI.
Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen news regarding leaks for several RUU’s, the most notable one being the one for the upcoming beast known as the HTC Endeavor. Thanks to our friend, XDA Recognized DeveloperÂ TMartin, we now have the first ever Sense 4.0 ICS ROM for the EVO 3D CDMA.
The ROM itself is, according to the dev, in early pre-alpha state. This means that this is suitable for a test device that you may have somewhere in your drawer, but certainly not for a daily driver. Having said that, the ROM has quite a few working features for something in such an early stage. For instance, it boots, SD card works well, sound works well, and it seems to be quite snappy in terms of performance. However, don’t expect to have mobile data or even be able to make calls just yet. This is only for testing purposes as you will not be able to do much with it.
If you do happen to flash it, make sure that you leave some feedback in the original thread. Big thumbs up to Virtuous Team for their work on the EVO 3D GSM and Sensation as well!
What to expect:
- It Boots!!!!
- First boot takes a little while…especially after you first unlock to get to setup
- Android 4.0.3
- Sense 4.0
- Working sound
- SD Card works
