HTC Sense 3.5 Port Coming to a DROID Incredible Near You (Updated: Incredible 2 Too)


It was only a matter of time, right?  Last week we saw a version of HTC’s Sense 3.5 ported over to the Desire, so forming a team to work on bringing it to the DROID Incredible just seemed like a logical next step.  And after looking at these screenshots, you can see that the team has made some progress by getting it booted and then fixing a ton of initial bugs in just a short few days.  You won’t find a test build to flash at this time, so try as best as you can to remain patient.  The 13-man team is working hard to get this out to the masses as soon as possible.  


And to get an idea of what to expect from HTC Sense 3.5, watch this video again:


Follow the progress at this XDA thread.

Update:  It looks like a build is already available for the Incredible 2.  Granted, it is a MySense 3.5 port which is part Sense 3.5 and part T-Mobile garbage, but at least it’s a start.  Jump on it!  Support thread here.

Cheers frostincredible!

    Actually I love this sense! Incredible is one of THE BEST phones even now, especially after receiving Gingerbread, it’s very crisp screen, and with added better features, smooth UI than most droid phones (including Samsung 4G Charge). Motorola’s don’t come even close (very choppy UI). 
    Anyway, is this coming from HTC or only a ROM for rooted users? I didn’t root and not intending to.

    My verizon Incredible 1 is prompting me to upgrade to this… put my system is rooted. Should I unroot before clicking upgrade now, or is this not an issue?

    • MBlnd

      Oh Nice! Already? I cannot answer on the root part, but I am impressed that you got a message to upgrade on this already! Impressed. Incredible also is amongst the few phones I have noticed to have Gingerbread; and it’s smooth.

  • I precisely desired to thank you very much all over again. I do not know the things I might have carried out without those solutions contributed by you directly on such a field. It seemed to be a real daunting scenario in my view, however , taking note of the very well-written approach you handled it made me to leap for happiness. I’m grateful for this help and as well , sincerely hope you really know what a great job you were providing educating many others using your webpage. I am certain you’ve never got to know any of us.

    I am hoping that first shot was the lock screen and if it is I hope it gets ported over to MIUI then I will be rocking that on the OG Droid, right now I have a 10 point lock screen that I really like but that one looks really clean and yet has a bunch of options.
    +1 for HTC for finally coming up with a decent manufacturer UI. (And then +100 to the 13 man team for porting it to devices that HTC has stopped updating) keep up the good work.

    Sorry theres just no way I can go back to sense after rooting w/ Cyanogenmod Gingerbread Stock….its too good, too clean, and too quick. I can’t ever see my self getting anything but stock.

    ..woohooo.,.I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use CentHub.cōm

    I wish they would have cleaned up the app drawer. That’s the one thing I don’t like about sense. It just looks so cluttered.

    This Sense 3.5 is actually MySense 3.5 from T-Mobile by the way. It’s not “vanilla” Sense 3.5 (vanilla in quotes because it’s still a skin over Android).

  • Sense? Meh. I’m pretty happy with ADW and CM7 on my Dinc.

    It should be coming to the Thunderbolt soon as one of its requirements is the next gen Snapdragons which the Thunderbolt has.

    his hands freak me out…

    Looks like crap. Vigor please don’t come out with this ugly ass skin.

    • I think there are two versions of Sense 3.5, much like there are two versions of Sense on HTC phones.  There is a version called “Espresso” that run on myTouch phones, and it sorta looks like this, the Sense we know and love is the one with the launcher HTC refers to as “Rosie”  two completely different UI’s.

      I think this UI is designed more for smaller screens, especially as we head into the qHD and 720p screen resolutions.

      I still have my DROID Incredible so I may try this out when it releases to see what its like, I’ll keep my Sense 3.0 on my ThunderBolt though.

    Where is it at for the Evo?

      Go look at XDA.  It’s already posted for beta use.

    I like how clean and organized it looks. Will try it if it comes to Thunderbolt.

  • Sense 3.0 looks better than 3.5 to me…

    • Bewara2009

      Hell yeah! 

      • I don’t think its the Sense you guys think it is, take a look at the version on myTouch phones and you’ll see.

    • agreed

    • this is the female Sense since its from a female phone Bliss perhaps there are two different senses
