So you got all excited after seeing HTC's latest UI on the Sensation
, but were dismayed to discover your hoary handset wouldn't be getting the same Sense 3.0
love? As usual, the folks at xda-developers have just the tonic for what ails you... as long as you own a Desire HD
. Yup, a clever fellow by the name of capychimp took the Sensation's ROM and ported it to yesteryear's HTC European flagship phone. The port isn't perfect -- those who dive in will lose camera support and the images need some resizing to properly fit on the HD's 800 x 480 display -- but brave souls who hit the source link for the download still get all those mellifluous movements that Sense 3.0 provides. See all the smooth scrolling in action after the break.
XDA-developers have also given the HTC HD2
a quick Sense 3.0 hug, along with Android 2.3.3 in a similarly incomplete custom ROM.
