HTCdev Posts DROID DNA’s Source Code, Lets Devs Tinker With the Phone’s… DNA

Even though it might take a workaround to unlock the bootloader on the DROID DNA, HTC has taken to their developer portal to publish the source code for the device. This is only big news to a select few of our readers, but those developers take this information and make their custom ROMs that more awesome.  If you’re looking to poke through the DNA’s source code hit the source link below and get to developing.

    I like Sense, but it baffles me that they would take away full-text search from the email app when it’s present in stock android as well as every other skinned version as far as I know.

      But I should give them credit for an amazingly fast phone, no lag whatsoever. Great battery life too. I don’t think the screen is that big of a deal, but having a 5″ screen in such a light phone is pretty awesome.

  • This is why I love HTC. That and sense…..

    Thinking of returning the Maxx HD I just got and getting the DNA…Only thing keeping me from it right now is, Sense…I hate it.

    Sense sucks; it still mainly looks as it did during Froyo/Gingerbread days. Unfortunately, I really don’t see a big Custom Rom scene for this phone. This would be lucky to see working AOSP.

    Eric, that was puntastic.

    CM10 here we come?

    I have swore that l will not own another skinned phone. The DNA does look awesome and if it can be unlocked and decent custom roms are available….

    • Sense is unusable on any hardware.

        Ran fine on the Rezound. More bloated than stock, but that’s obvious.

        i actually have no issue with sense, the lag seen on older devices is not there anymore (i just used to hate sense but decided to give it a chance)

          Seriously, I don’t get the Sense hate. I really like the lock screen, and have had no issues with it on my DNA

          • Chris

            Exaclty. I prefer Sense over all other skins, and even over stock ICS/JB

      • DanWazz

        I don’t like sense, but this phone is silky smooth. No lag at all. Even the GSIII seemed laggy when compared to it.

        Don’t even bother posting.

    • once you remove all the 3 gigs of vzw trash from the phone, remove all the nagging notifications(NFC/WIFI/GPS) and run off of another launcher its actually a pretty enjoyable experience… its a little work but I love my DNA… rooted/debloated/stock kernel

      • JoshGroff

        Heck, even debloated sense is enjoyable.
