    Hi everyone,

    Is it possible to install a pure Android4.1 without HTC sense? Another question is that my phone's battery is acceptible when I working in my office or staying at home, but when I am traveling around, the battery is drained much faster with same activities, do you guys have the similar situation? Thanks.

    Bluetooth always drains my batteries. I keep it off unless I am driving somewhere.
    As for your first question, I believe XDA has some good ROMs that might fill the bill.

    While there are no Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) ROMs yet, it has definitely been explored and is being worked on currently at RootzWiki and xda.

    The closest thing available for a daily driver for all mobile carriers would be the De-sensed ROM by Team CodeFire. It's based on 4.0.3 but has had nearly all HTC Sense components removed, making it, in my opinion, smoother and more responsive with better battery life. It has also been fitted with MANY features and styles from Jelly Bean.

    You can find all the information from the developer and links to the ROM along with instructions if you Google RootzWiki De-Sensed ICS Vivid. I'd post a link but I'm too new for that sort of thing.
