[ROM][12/5/11] Virtuous Sensation v2.2.1 :: Enhanced/Optimized Stock ROM (1.73.401.2)
Virtuous Sensation is a custom ROM for the HTC Pyramid series of phones (Sensation, Sensation XE, etc.). The goal is to provide a simple, Sense-based, mostly-stock ROM based on the official Sensation Sense ROM with essential bug fixes and only subtle enhancements.
Based off the official Sensation ROM (WWE 1.73.401.2), deodexed and zipaligned.
Pre-rooted with the latest version of Superuser and modified ramdisk to allow adb remount, mock locations, etc.
Enhanced reboot options built-in, allowing for booting into recovery, bootloader, hot boot, etc.
Bricked kernel with overclocking daemon (no need for SetCPU/Tuner). Screen Off: 192000 / 1188000 (conservative). Screen On: 192000 / 1512000 (ondemand).
IO optimizations including the use of ext4 with writeback journaling for all mounts and larger read-ahead buffer for improved sdcard performance.
Updated versions of all Market-available apps.
All Market-installable apps installed in /data/app. These apps are automatically installed for you both on initial install and after a factory reset/wipe. There are custom scripts to use Android`s package manager (pm) to manage these apps, which ensures they are installed properly.
Bloatware, defined as anything you could easily choose to download from the Market yourself, has been removed.
Advanced quick settings, allowing for the configuration of options listed in this tab.
Overscroll glow effect, tastefully done using white, to match any theme or background.
The popular CRT off animation. We have intentionally omitted CRT on, as Sense 3.x provides impressive power on animations itself.
Customized camera application with bitrate selection and support for using mp4 containers.
Several custom themes, including Slate3D (CypiS), AmazingSense (CypiS), Revolution (he_stheone64) and Honey3D (he_stheone64).
Automated battery calibration. Just plug your phone in after a wipe and charge it to full (preferably overnight), then let our script do the rest.
Over the air updates via ROM Manager.
