Leo on X1

Posted On: Monday, February 08, 2010

Ever since HTC Leo surfaced, i’ve been lusting to get the updated HTC Sense UI onto my X1. I personally didn’t like TF3D that much, but with HTC Sense the UI was taken a lot further making it more useful and powerful and an extreme eye-candy. (can’t get enough of the weather animations)

But disappointed I was since all Leo ROMs that surfaced were either too buggy or poor in performance and thus lacked the guts to be used as a day-to-day ROM. Of course there were customizations in between where people brought in Leo with better performance by turning off the X1 panels or those who modified the original TF3D2 (the one with landscape support) to be close to what Leo’s Sense offered. I know, i’m a bit spoiled to be looking for best performance while running X1 Panels as well as HTC Sense…

And now… i can finally say that there is a ROM out there that works just as i had imagined. NRGZ28’s latest Energy ROM with HTC Sense and Windows Mobile 6.5.5 including X1 Panel Manager works like a charm! HTC Sense does full landscape, works super fast (can get a bit laggy if you have too many applications open but otherwise is a charm), and is by far the least buggiest ROM i have used in the last few weeks. (to be honest – i haven’t found any bugs yet but i wouldn’t hold my breath either… :)

Head on here for more info on the ROM. Just so you know, I’m using the 23529 build which according to NRGZ28: “The 23529 Build that's the latest in the 6.5.5 series with the Start/Close buttons at the bottom. These builds are not as stable but they reflect the latest cutting edge technology from Microsoft.”
