Want to upgrade your HTC Desire HD to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread but don’t want HTC Sense included? Fortunately, you can. Thanks to XDA Developers member mike1986, you can easily update your phone to the latest Gingerbread but without the ghost of HTC Sense following behind.
Through the Android Revolution HD 6.3.2 custom ROM, you can load Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread on your phone and avoid the memory-sapping burden of HTC Sense. As a bare minimum, several HTC Sense components can be removed, such as the Rosie launcher, HTC Themes, HTC Widgets, HTC Lockscreen, HTC Likes, and several others.
A bunch of HTC apps are retained in the ROM, though. For instance, the HTC Dialer, which is arguably slicker and better than the stock Android phone dialer, is still there. Other retained HTC apps include Contacts, Facebook for HTC Sense, Live Wallpapers, and Navigation.
All in all, you can expect your phone to feel a little better without the extra baggage. If you want to try a Sense-less Gingerbread experience, read on and find out how you can install Android Revolution HD 6.3.2 on your HTC Desire HD.
