It appears that the developer known as mike1986 has created a lovely new ROM for the HTC Sensation specifically which bumps the device’s processor speed up to 1.56 GHz. While this device’s original dual-core processor speed was clocked at 1.2GHz, this ROM provides the device with the original stock speed of its MSN8660 chipset, that being 1.51GHz by default, here controlled automatically by built-in O/C Daemon. In addition to this speed boost, you’ll find that there’s only speed boosts and power optimizations across the board: that means your device will look and feel exactly the same, it’ll just be BETTER!
This brand new ROM offers such lovely bits as full Arabic and Hebrew languages, an oddity in this generally Romantic-language-heavy Android world, the ability to work with all different HTC Sensation versions including the HTC Sensation 4G (US T-Mobile) with support for Wi-Fi calling and Visual Voice Mail. Battery life has reportedly be increased, improved EXT4 performance with a new mounting method, SD card EXT4 partition support, and built-in easy ability to change your boot animation – neato! Of course once you’re rooted on any Android device this is as simple as replacing one zipped folder of images with another, but easier is easier!
There’s improved Andreno200 configuration, RAM optimizations, SD Card speed tweak, battery auto-calibration, auto-removal of bloatware applications (including what they’ve decided were bloatware, of course, that being Amazon MP3, SoundHound trial, and etc), all system apps updated to their latest versions, and somehow or another improved camera performance. And your 3D engine has been overclocked from 266.6MHz to 320MHz. And you’ve got a GPU+ patch for improved graphics performance in 2D and 3D. And you’ve got the latest official HTC RUU 1.45.401.2 and Gingerbread 2.3.4 if you didn’t have them already.
That’s – what – everything you could possibly ever want?
Go check it out on XDA Developers and let us know how it goes! Makes you wonder if it’ll be worth moving over to the HTC Amaze 4G or not — perhaps the slightly more awesome physical build on the Sensation will continue to win you over? Also note that there’s a perhaps slightly involved 1.7GHz overclock out there as well
- as we speak!
