Sense 4.x mod released to raise recent app panels to 16 on the HTC EVO 4G LTE

Steal25 has posted a how-to on xda that works in conjunction with Zeppelinrox’s multitasking tweaks to raise the maximum listed recent apps in Sense 4.x to 16.

The previous limit was probably OK; however, with multitasking tweaks that make it work better,  and the ability to open more than eight applications without killing them, the built-in limit is a bit small.

For times when you’re switching between Yelp, Google Maps, Foursquare, texting, Chrome, and other apps, this allows for quick and easy access to what you have open and sitting in the background.

The guide assumes you already know how to decompile an Android app, edit it, and piece it back together, so it’s not exactly a guide for everyone.

If you’re not in the mood to spend a while decompiling, editing, recompiling, and finally pushing the system application back onto your phone, you should probably wait a few hours for ROM developers to incorporate it into their ROMs, or someone to make a flashable mod of it.

Development seems to be really taking off in the Sense 4.x arena the past couple of days on the HTC EVO 4G LTE. Let’s hope that it keeps on going, and these great mods for Sense 4.x keep on popping out.

    I would rather the recent apps button just be a settings/menu button like before. I was okay with just holding the home button to see what I was recently using. Also, it’s kinda hard to forget what I had just used, when it’s all on my home pages. (shrug) It’s not for everyone.

      @ Doug. Are you rooted and running any custom Roms by chance? Reason I ask is alot of them have the ability to remap your buttons for whatever you want. Give it a shot. Or even a custom launcher… (doesn’t require root) could help you out too.

    It’s cool to see something like this available, but I’ve never found myself limited by the default 8. I’m sure this will be useful to others though ;)

    Definitely waiting. I am sure I could figure out how to do it, but better safe than sorry.
    Haha.
