Get the HTC Desire camera on Nexus One without loading HTC Sense

One of the sticking points of using the Desire ROM with HTC Sense on the Nexus One was that, at least for a while, the camera wasn't fully functional. That's been fixed, and now you can do one better and run the Desire's camera software -- which has a few more features than the stock Nexus One camera software -- without having to load the entire Desire ROM along with Sense.

It's a basic update from MoDaCo -- just download it to the root of your microSD card, reboot into recovery and apply the zip file. That simple, and it's working at the full 5 megapixels. A few more screen shots after the break. [MoDaCo]

  • can they do this with the music player and weather widget. it's the only thing i like about sense. i know you can download weather widget but like when you turn on your screen and the animations appear. if not how can i ask the developer if he can make it so i can only have sense music and weather widget/app
  • Use Paul's online kitchen for that. Super easy. http://android.modaco.com/content/google-nexus-one-nexusone-modaco-com/303009/23-mar-alpha-19-modaco-custom-rom-with-htc-sense-desire-rom-a18-desire-doesnt-have-this/
  • Oops, downloaded the wrong file, didnt grab the one for Cyanogen mod Still didnt work, it flashes the boot img so I think that is why.
  • Can you do this on the droid?
  • Do I need to get the root access?
