Default Sense 3.0 on DHD?

OK, so this might be a stupid question, apologies in advance if it is, but is it possible to get sense 3.0 on the DHD? I have just been looking at the Sensation and as im not due an upgrade for another 12 months thought a new UI might be a halfway house!

Yeah - there are some custom rom's that run 3.0 (all ok if you are rooted/want to root) but, from other threads on here (and the post above), it appears that 3.0 will be coming toi the DHD soon anyway (if you're not rooted/wanting to root)

Take a look at the first item in the list of features.

I don't think there's been anything official, but generally speaking, when the RUU's are leaked, the proper release isn't too far behind.

Yup, but I have heard the RUU leak cannot be installed unless rooted. Mike1986 said there is a surprised coming at the end of the month and there have been rumors that sense 3.5 is coming.. figures cross!!!

Will it be like the GB release do you think? We wait and wait and wait for carriers to get the software, test it, tweak it, test it some more, tweak it again, do a deal so that Vodafone get it first, then release it a month or two after the scheduled release date?

screenshots of Desire HD running sense 3.5

https://plus.google.com/photos/105502178297258827378/albums/5648533628345798097

Again this is rumour stuff... looks like version 3.45.405.3

The thing is, it should be 2.3.5, not 2.3.4 as the 3.06.405 Sense 3.0 is running 2.3.5... hmm

The official Desire S Android 2.3.5/Sense 3.0 ROM is out: HTC Desire S gets Gingerbread 2.3.5 and Sense 3.0 - GSMArena.com news

Hardware wise it is very similar to the DHD. I guess it wont be too long now.

you know, ive been happy with the stock DHD rom for a while now...till i had a play with a friends Sensation and i was like...oooo....i'd like a piece of that. interesting how HTc have suddenly caved in and are going to provide us with the Sense v3.

will we be getting v3.0 or 3.5? 3.5 works better with single core devices right? and anyways, if the chuffing 600mhz HTC Explorer can get 3.5, we better be getting the latest sense!!!!

So the DHD will be getting sense 3.0 eventually. How will the upgrade be rolled out? Does it have to be approved by the carriers like in the Android. I am in Canada on Telus network and I would love to have Sense 3.0.

Unfortunately I can't root my phone on Telus network, otherwise I would be all over the 3.0 Sense ROM.

If you're network branded it will be dependant on Telus when/if you get the update.

Regarding root, all DHD's are rootable now, branded or not.

Pardon me for asking, but why can't you root your phone on Telus? Never heard of anything like this before and I'm intrigued!!

For a while, there were certain software versions that were unrootable as all the normal vulnerabilities were patched. The Telus software (2.43.xxx.x I think) was one of them.

Well you can root Telus HD phones. There seems to be extra steps and people seem to be getting on and off results. I want to do it cause I would love sense 3.0...but it seems like a risky procedure considering for my fixed income earning ass at the moment.

No word yet on to when HTC will actually push an over the air upgrade for sense 3.0 is there.

I was sure I read on here that Sense 3.5 will be coming to the DHD (and we may not even be getting 3.0).

If the Desire S looks to be getting it, hopefully we won't be too far behind: HTC Desire S Gets Android 2.3.5, Sense 3.0

Fingers crossed. But in all honesty, I wouldn't hold out much hope. I'd love to get this through official means, but I'm losing faith in HTC every day with lack of support they will show an older phone vs a slightly newer one with almost the same spec

i have to admit this as well, HTC have started to lose me, after the HTC Hero debarcle in getting 2.1, I thought it was a blip but after the whole crap they released about our phones not being able to handle it? piffle. they've released too many phones too soon and have spread themselves too wide to give each handset the support each needs. at least with SE and Sammy have stepped up in getting their updates out ASAP and i'd imagine Moto will follow suit with Google now aquiring them.

I still love my DHD, and if needs be, I'll just root the beggar. But it shouldnt be that way....should it?

I understand that people may be hesitant in rooting, but can honestly say that it's the best thing you'll ever do with your phone... unleash the power of the DHD and get flashing different ROM's. As I've said on other threads, being able to flash a new ROM every now and then makes the 2 year contract a little more bearable... even if you only flash every3 months... that's like having 8 "new" phones over the 2 year contract... like a new toy to play with each time!

I am actually using the Sense 3.0 which was made for the Desire HD for around a month now. It is a very stable ROM. You need to be rooted to put it on. Look at my signature if you want it.

I am using the HTC's leaked version of the new Sense Rom... I have to say it is so much smoother than 2.1.

But no official update for Sense 3.0 I am afraid...

Why wait, I rooted in 6 mins with a one click program then put on a rom with sense 3.5 and it sings.

Take a look at this for the ROM:

[ROM][Nov 6][v3.1][Desire HD] BeatMod BlissSense Hybrid | Sense 3.5 | 2.3.5 - xda-developers

and this for the rooting software:

[TOOL] Advanced Ace Hack Kit (UPDATED 29-10-2011) - xda-developers

Then enjoy the freedom of what an unleashed DHD can do

The Desire S just received the update to Android 2.3.5 and Sense 3.0.

That phone is almost exactly the same as the Desire HD, why wouldn't we get the update?

I'm sure that, from something else I read on here, we won't be getting 3.0, but 3.5 should be coming to our devices!

An official update might be on the cards guys...

The new RUU 3.12.405.1 was leaked with Sense 3.0 running Android 2.3.5.

https://www.facebook.com/htctr/posts/226386427429915

This FB post might confirm it... English translation below:

This upgrade story has really become a nuisance. I call on everyone to stop liking that page. If numbers go down significantly maybe HTC will stop and think "what have we done in Turkey". If they don't say this, we'll all know where they stand.
,The following post quotes Dec. 15 as Sense 3 update for DHD and the next one comments on how many times they have been given new dates

-----

Thanks to mike1986 and makbil over at XDA for the info above

I had a play with my sisters enw phone the other day, HTC sensation, and I like some of the new features...

Wondering if I root my DHD, will I lose everything again and have to spend hours and hours reinstalling all the apps and setting up accounts.

Also... which of the dozens of roms do I go for... never rooted a phone before.

The Ace Hack kit roots the phone, without you loosing stuff (I believe).

As for which ROM you go for... depends what you want from your device - you can get Sense based ROM's that are similar to the Stock HTC one or there are Vanilla Android ROM's (like CyanogenMod 7 or others) that are similar to what the Nexus runs.

The same questions being asked over and over I think. I have a copy, but it's older and I'm not sure how he'd feel about me sticking it on my dropbox account and in the thread.

Once I've got a spare moment, I'll drop him a PM. I've never dealt with him before so no idea what his response will be.

Hmm, I also used the Android Ace Hack Kit just this past weekend and I rooted for the first time ever. I also went to Android Revolution HD because I like the Sense stuff. I am also playing with overclocking now. Have people settled on one speed? I had it set to 1.8Ghz and it was noticeably faster....like REALLY fast. But it froze once last night.

Each handset handles overclocking differently so it's best to start off small, then work your way up to give yourself the best balance of speed vs stability.

1.8Ghz is obviously too fast so try something a little slower.

Regardless, over-clocking to any degree is going to shorten the life of the handset.
