HTC Vision Gingerbread + Sense 2.1 ROM

Development team VillainROM has released a new Gingerbread-based custom ROM for "HTC Vision" devices -- that's the T-Mobile G2 in the U.S. and the HTC Desire Z pretty much everywhere else. SenseGinger 1.0 is based on the recently-leaked Wildfire S ROM, meaning that in addition to Android 2.3.2 it also sports the new version 2.1 of HTC's Sense UI. As far as we can tell, this is the first custom ROM to appear based on the new Sense 2.1.

It's also a 1.0 release, and there's a list of known issues that you should be aware of before flashing, so if you're expecting a polished ROM with full functionality then this might not be for you. However, if you're a G2 owner with bad case of Sense (and Gingerbread) envy, or a Desire Z user who can't wait until summer for the official update, then you may want to take a closer look. [VillainROM]

any idea if this can also be used for the Evo 4g. I want gingerbread but with the new Sense as well.

I'm wondering the same thing! I'm having EVO envy right now! I'm fully rooted, I just never flashed any ROM because I'm a HUGE sense fan and I'm definitely liking what I see about the new UI...and GINGERBREAD! Can any devs out there bake one up for us EVO lovers? PRETYY PLEEEEEEEEASE?!

chances are, it wont work (because as far as i know, each rom is customized for the phone its made for) . I'm interested in trying the new sense, but I DO like stock gingerbread, I just wish it was a bit more tailored to the EVO

According to them, they're only working on GSM devices, not CDMA, ( so it might be a little bit before someone else swipes the port and gets it to run on other devices. :(

Should have been called GingerSense 1.0 instead, that just flows better.

Alp says:

so is this the same as the one leaked for Desire HD?

if it is then why ignore it.

Alex Dobie says:

That's an official HTC update that was leaked. This is a custom ROM based on leaked firmware for other devices.

makes me wonder how fast and responsive a gingerbread based sense rom would be compared to Froyo

Need for EVO 4G please!
