    I see they got GPS working. Unfortunately, it looks like Bluetooth and the camera are still down for the count for now.

    I am definitely keeping an eye on this ROM. This is really what I have wanted since I first heard about Android 2.2 so many months ago.

    There are things I like about both Sense and "vanilla".

    Once Sense 2.2 becomes more stable, I'll run it with Launcher Pro Plus and the vanilla lock and be happy.

    Haha! I was going to ask the same thing but you beat me to it.

    I think I would go with the AOSP Android 2.2 ROM and then get Launcher Pro. That would be ideal for me in that situation!

    I'm using CM6.1 now, and love it. I like the Sense style status bar. I've tweaked the CM6.1 bar as much as I can to make it look close, but it's still not perfect.

    I sat in class one night, bored as hell, and listed out what would be the perfect rom. It was bits of AOSP/CM and pieces of Sense. Maybe if I ever learn to develop roms I'll make it :)

    Still, the HTC sense overlay is still the best out there, imo;) even though I like the speed of aosp roms

    AOSP stands for Android Open Source Project. It basically means Android is an open operating system and whatnot. In terms of an Android ROM, however, it basically means it is a stock Android ROM, without a skin on top. If you look at how Android is on a stock Google Nexus One, that is a completely stock ROM, with a skin.

    You can read more about it here: Welcome to Android | Android Open Source .

    I have switched to nonsense ROMs several times and always end up back at Fresh due to the mail, calendar and contact clients. I think they are superior to the clients in CM6. So I run ADW on Fresh. I miss out on the nice sense widgets, but still get the better apps.

    To each their own, I'd rather give widgets and such for the speed of AOSP roms like CM6 and aosp

    But HTC sense is still the best

    So what actually makes a ROM sense? Launcher? Widgets? Apps? There are a ton of differences between asop and sense. If I can change them all one at a time when does my sense become asop?

    Sense is HTC's Stock Rom -
    You can't make changes to sense then all of a sudden its not Sense anymore.
    You CAN flash a non-Sense Rom.....

    HTC and AOSP roms have different frameworks. No HTC sense widgets and such will work with CM6 or aosp 0.9.8

    You came pretty close to answering my poorly phased question. :eek:

    So my original assumption was that Sense was just HTC's custom launcher so they could differentiate themselves some. Since widgets are highly UI dependent, it seems logical they won't run on other launchers. But it gets extended beyond launcher into things like status bar, lock screens, etc. Still all UI related, so still understandable.

    But the hooks seem to go deeper and there are more significant differences when you look at how HTC apps work. Most notably the mail client and it interacts with Exchange. Every ROM and each version (1.5, 2.1, 2.2, ...) that I have seen handles this differently and very few of them well. I am curious where these differences reside. Is it in the app, ROM or somewhere in between. Can I run HTC's apps on ASOP ROMS? How about stock apps on ASOP?

    Sorry for the long winded post. Maybe I need to be referred to an Android architecture site and let me fend for myself. ;)

    Stock apps yes, HTC apps no they are proprietary
