    Theoretically, now that the Desire's Sense ROM has been leaked will we see a Sense UI ported over to the Motorola Droid? Is that even possible?

    Yes, it's very possible and it's currently being worked on over at alldroid. No downloads available yet but a dev has got it running and says it is FC'ing non stop. I imagine we will see something in a few weeks.

    Have you ever seen Sense UI? Google it if not. Also with Sense comes full flash support which is always nice.

    I would be ecstatic if Sense came to the Droid. All the themes that attempt to emulate Sense just suck. And I've tried just about every single one.

    That's what I figured but I wasn't sure. What's FC'ing? Sorry--new to this whole phone OS stuff.

    That pretty much assures me I'm going to get the Droid. I need a new phone and can't wait for the N1 to come to Verizon and I want the extra hardware boost the Droid provides over the Eris.

    Shutting up yet another group of Droid owners that have been drooling over senseUI since the Droid was released. It's going to be very interesting to see what this forum looks like once 2.1 is released, when Flash 10.1 is released, and senseUI is illegally available for the Droid.

    Except it's not that simple. Flash is embedded into the framework of Sense, so you can't just extract it.

    illegal? isn't the premise of android and open source based on free distribution and modification?

    oh, and i'm stoked for some Flash 10.1, that is the one thing my Droid is missing.

    Open source doesn't mean you can steal whatever you want from anyone who makes something licensed under an open source license.

    After having sense for two months on my Eris I can say that it was very nice, and the way the contacts worked was great.

    Looking forward to seeing this available!

    I'm all for having the option of adding sense ui to my Droid. I really liked the Eris and would have never switched if I were able to root and switch roms like with the Droid.

    The android OS is open source but Sense definitly isn't. And all the google apps are also closed source.

    I would kill for some sense ui on my DROID. I fell in love with the hero since it was announced but was able to hold out till the DROID was actually released. I just think sense would be ideal for me, and perfect on my already sweet DROID. :D

    Both birdman and Greek are working on porting the Desire ROM.

    birdman says he's got the thing booting, but everything immediately FC's.

    The logcat is at Alldroid, if anyone can make any sense out of it (haha pun intended)
