I believe that our Sensation can do a lot more / be a lot faster / and therefore we can be more productive than with the Sense ROMs.
I also like to customize my own apps in a given ROM, so any simple/minimalistic ROM is a plus for me.

I therefore present to all who like this approach my very own HyperSensation ROM release, based on the latest CM7 build.

Screenshots (from v0.4+)

- Download links, changelog and addons and extras in post #2
- Extras and other links (ie. kernel, addons, etc) in post#3
- FAQ and themes in post #4

What you get:
- Simple, minimalistic ROM to be a good base for your everyday needs (those who like every app to be in there "out-of-the-box" should steer clear)
- Speed tweaks to make the CM7 base even faster and more responsive
- Tweaks to make battery life even better
- Tweaks to included apps (camera, mail, etc) to make the experince even more whole
- 720p video recording used instead of 1080p so that the camera does not FC
- GApps included so you do not have to install afterwards (Maps and Talk removed, but you can install through the Market)
- Custom minimalistic theme - partly from HyperDroid for HD2 and partly my own
- Stock CM kernel, so you can flash whichever kernel you want (refer to post #3)
- Always updated base to keep your flashing appetite full

You will find two branches, F (full version) and M (minimalistic version):

Full version:
- ADW Launcher (stock CM7)
- Email (stock CM7)
- Keyboard with predictive text (stock SM7)
- TTS service installed

Minimalistic version:
- Launcher Pro
- K9 Mail
- Keyboard without predictive text

All other addons/tweaks are exactly the same in the two branches, its just a matter of personal taste

Battery usage with my ROM:
- Standby: 1% per hour
- Light use (some calls, internet, BT): 2% per hour!

My current setup:
- Google sync enabled, K9 Mail running with 1 hour interval checks
- Auto backlight, 30 second screen timeout
- faux AOSP kernel 0.2.3 beta 8, -75mV, 1.08 Ghz max / 384 Mhz min clock
- 2G only + Wifi enabled at home
- In the car bluetooth is always on and connected

- thanks to droidyou for the FTP to host my files
- thanks to persiansown for the Sensation CM builds!
- thanks to Pongster for the whole idea of creating a minimalistic yet usable build, I used to run his HyperDroidGBX when I still had my HD2...
