Yankee’s Sense 5 Android 4.3 w Zoe camera released

Sense 5 but not on this ROMWe covered a bit of Yankee’s Sense 5 ports for the HTC EVO 4G LTE back when it was in the old base, but it’s been updated in the past couple of days to Android 4.3 and includes a functioning Zoe camera.

For those who have updated their firmware to the Android 4.3 release that was yanked from HTC, and who are S-OFF and looking for a different Sense ROM with the new base, this is probably the best Sense 5 port you’re going to locate (at least today).

The Zoe camera allows you to make pictures that move, yet for some reason they don’t work with Vine. Zoe also does a bunch of other neat stuff, although which portions of it have been been ported over are not listed and I’m not sure yet as I’m unfortunately having to use the EVO 4G LTE as a phone today instead of a ROM flashing machine.

WiFi tether still evidently remains an issue as it does with most 4.3 Sense ROMs at the moment on the EVO 4G LTE; however, it appears that will be resolved in the next release, although there’s not an ETA available at this point on that.

Remember that at this point with this ROM you have to be on the new 4.3 firmware. Being on the new firmware means you have to have a new recovery. If you’re not S-OFF, attempting all of this could make you fail very very badly and not be able to recover your phone. So tread cautiously if you’re not already at 4.3.

    Is this actually based off of the new update for the evo 4g lte or is it a port from the one?

    I’d assume it’s based off of the official EVO LTE update since it’s Sense 5. I think the ports from the HTC ONE have been Sense 5.5 This is just an assumption though.

    I am a big fan of Yankees’ work, but I am running Sin’s and Chubbz sense 5.5 v3 port. I am waiting on Yankees to move up to 5.5 before I go back to his ROM though. Based on the xda thread, this is based off of the update from HTC. He put out the Sprint stock rom for a little bit while he built this, so I assume this is based off of the stock rom and just tweaked for imporvements.
