HTC made some smart choices when designing Sense 4.0, going with a look that was a little less overbearing than previous iterations, while keeping what worked. Since it’s arrived, we’ve seen independent efforts to attempt bringing Sense 4.0 to phones from other manufacturers, with varying degrees of success. Today, we look at a major milestone being reached towards getting Sense 4.0 on Samsung’s Galaxy S II, with news of the first-such custom ROM booting on the phone’s international version.

This ROM is the work of the Sense4All team, which has succeeded in getting the phone to boot with Sense 4.0 in place. That said, there’s a whole lot that’s not working at the moment, and we’re a long way off from this being ready to be a daily driver, but it’s major progress, all the same.

We don’t even have a complete list of what’s working and what’s not, but with kind-of important systems like voice calls and data connectivity reportedly not working, it’s clear just how far off we are. That’s why you won’t see a public release of the ROM just yet, but interested developers are invited to contact the team and throw their weight into crafting this into a more polished version, fit for distribution.
