    That vr-zone article is dumb. It doesn't show you much especially when they block shit out.

    If Google have made the dock have 4 icons now then that's an improvement depending on what they are. Still, couldn't give a rats as I use Launcher Pro.

    yeah i never liked launcher pro or any others really. I know it's practically heresy but i prefer sense UI over any other. in the dock a button to list everything, a large button to open the phone, and a button to add stuff to the desktop. all i need :) large button for phone is key ;)

    I really like Sense as well, so you're not alone. I do want a change, though.

    I'm using an HTC Desire with Insertcoin ROM 2.3.3 (with sense 2.1 + some Sense 3.0 features). I started to use the phone on January 20th 2011 (on Froyo 2.2)

    App Recommendation:

    -If some people want to access file sharing from a server in a domain (maybe also in workgroup), I tried accessing my files server,with the app SambaExplorer, which is working well.

    -HeyTell, it's like a walki talki over 3G.
    -Wireless File transfert (Can access your SD card from local network, you need a local wireless)
    -Ringdroid (Make your custom ringtone)

    Sense is great but munches space like a madman. I'm all for lean and quick, and Sense unfortunately doesn't provide that.
    Did love their dialer interface and all.

    I wished they would release sense to people other than HTC users so we can enjoy some of those apps.

    I'll give a try to this one. Thanks ;)


    I agree, and not for just the app, but for the interface, which is very nice. I tried Cyanogenmod7, and I flashed back to Insertcoin a few hour after, just for sense!

    CDMA; we probably won't see the HD for a year. :p

    Has any regular Desire owners tried the dev version of Gingerbread HTC released on their site?

    You have to bypass it then choose the updated keyboard in input settings. Steel Droid stinks imo.

    Yup, on a Bravo (GSM) model. I tried Cyanogen 7 and am now on Oxygen.
    Rooted through Unrevoked and S-OFF by Alpharev. All damn smooth.

    Cyanogen was a nice proof-of-concept to me, being my first flashed ROM. Oxygen is damn lightweight, and I love it most of the time.

    Seriously thinking about going back to 2.2 stock and update that though, I miss my status lights for everything instead of just for power and charging.
    I also miss some of the smart elements in the Sense UI, mainly the Dialer.

    I was looking at oxygen, is it better on the battery life or no difference?
