Finally there is some great news for all those waiting to taste the deliciousness of Sense UI on their Epic 4G. XDA developer and senior member, ahmgsk, has released a developer only Sense’d ROM for Samsung Epic 4G based on Android 2.2 Froyo. Apparently there was a lot of commotion among forum members to get Sense on their device and this release is an effort to cool down things a bit.
We really don’t know why someone would get “Angry” on no “Sense” for their Epic 4G, but here is what the developer has to say about this:
Hello Angry Young people, I have being fighting to get this one working, But due to shortage of time and some personal Issues i could not.
Giving this out to Developers and Only Developers.
Package includes Kernel and Everything. (Amend Script) Green recovery should work perfect.
Please Users sit back and let some developer work on it make it ready for ur epic to eat, or else it might get stomach-aches.
It is evident that this release of custom Android 2.2 Froyo ROM with HTC Sense 2.1 is only meant for developers. The developers are requested to download the build and further tweak, optimize and bug free this ROM so that it can get formally usable status for general public.
You can see HTC Sense in action on Samsung Epic 4G in this video:
Although its is still work in progress, but the video shows smooth sailing of Sense on Epic 4G with a little lag. You can head to the official XDA porting thread here and then try out the ROM if you want. But again, it is necessary to understand that this build is only meant for ROM chefs, seasoned Android hackers and developers. Senseless flashing of this Sense ROM on your Epic 4G can cause a brick so proceed with caution.
