A few weeks ago, we informed you about some worrying news that some ‘older’ Android handsets will not receive an update to the stylish new Sense 3.0 UI due to hardware restrictions. However, you won’t need to worry about that if the clever guys over at XDA keep providing ROMs for eager users.
That is exactly what has happened now, as we can confirm that Sense 3.0 UI downloads are now available for the HTC Desire HD as well as the Desire Z handsets. Who knows when HTC intends to update the handsets officially to Sense 3.0, they might not not do it at all – which is why you should download these as soon as you can.
Judging from feedback on both ROMs, they seem to be a pretty stable build of Sense 3.0 and you’ll see that all the UI changes are there, including the snazzy weather animation themes, enhanced lockscreen and an update to various widgets, which are now more visually impressive.
If you are interested in trying these out, you’ll find information and the download links over at XDA Forums here. As always, installing ROMs is your own responsibility and there’s always a risk of bricking your device. So don’t go crying to HTC for help, because you won’t get it.
Let us know how you get on!
