After the HTC One series of phones was announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress, numerous firmware leaks began to surface based on those different HTC devices. HTC’s Sense 4.0 UI looks promising on the HTC One phones and with the firmware leaks already scattered all throughout the Internet, many HTC fans are rejoicing as those leaks are now being ported to older HTC models.
One such lucky HTC device to receive a direct port of the firmware leak is the HTC Sensation. Developed by XDA Developers member shnizlon, the OrDroid custom ROM is an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM based on the latest leaked RUU firmware (version 1.53.401.2) for the HTC One S.
According to the developer’s notes, the ported firmware is deodexed, zipaligned, and pre-rooted. The ROM also includes SuperSU and BusyBox, as well as options to install AOSP apps and to remove HTC apps.
Unfortunately, Bluetooth still is non-functional, among other bugs and issues.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich for your HTC Sensation then the ORDroid ROM will definitely satisfy your cravings. Combining elements of Ice Cream Sandwich and the eye-candy of the Sense 4.0 UI, the OrDroid ROM is jampacked filled with all the latest features.
This guide is intended only for the HTC Sensation. It is not compatible with any other HTC Sensation variants. Use this guide at your own risk and do not hold us liable for any damage that happens to you or your phone.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.0 on your HTC Sensation via the OrDroid custom ROM.
