The HTC Sensation was the first device to ship with the “brand new” Sense 3.0 back in 2011. This former flagship smartphone stayed on Ice Cream Sandwich when HTC decided to abandon it and focus on the One line. Now, the Sensation is almost four years old. Despite this, many still use it as their primary device. Development for this device is still quite active, and as a result we can see a quite functional Lollipop build.
The unofficial CyanogenMod 12 port was built by XDA Recognized Contributor shantur. The ROM is still in the testing phase, but the list of working items is quite impressive. According to developer most things, if not everything, is working. There are some reports regarding the Wi-Fi connectivity in the Middle East, but this appears to be a regional problem.
It’s always nice to see the newest version of Android running well on older devices. We wish HTC Sensation and its users at least one more Android version to try. More information about the project and download links can be found in the CM 12 for Sensation forum thread.
