HTC Sense on CyanogenMod ?
Posted 31 May 2010 - 04:01 AM
1) if I may sound / look like a total newbie (the fact is: I really am a nub).
2) I'm not entirely sure whether this thread should be here or in the HTC Magic theme forum.
My question is in regards to the HTC Sense for HTC Magic:
I'm currently using HTC Magic (32B) w/ CyanogenMod 5.0.7
0) What is the HTC Sense for HTC Magic ? Is it a complete ROM (like Cyanogen) or merely a theme ?
1) Probably my real question (depending on question #0) is: can I keep using CyanogenMod w/ HTC Sense as the theme ?
2) If the answer for #1 is 'no' then - is there any theme out there that's pretty much work and/or feel like the HTC Sense ?
Much appreciated for your time and patience.

1) Not a theme so you can't load it on top
2) No idea, I've heard some mention "Beautiful Widgets" on the market gives a sense look & some aspects of custom launchers can do parts of it, but having never played with a sense rom I don't know how close they are/what bits imitate what.
Hopefully someone knows more about it but I'd say some variation of 2) is what you'll be looking for.

There are, however, some themes out there that can give CM a Sense-like look to it, but not any of the widgets or added functionality that are included in Sense. The one that comes to mind is the Community Hero Mod (CHM), but I don't know if this one has been updated to work with CM 5.0.7 or not.
As for Beautiful Widgets, they used to mimic the look and feel of the widgets included in Sense very closely until HTC hit them with a C&D. Now Beautiful Widgets have been re-worked so they don't resemble Sense widgets so closely, but they are skinnable (at least the clock+weather widget is), so users have made skins to bring back the Sense-style look.

Download launcherpro, change the dock background to the sense one from the metamorph download and change all teh icons to the invisible icons and appropriate shortcuts.
