[ROM] SkyRaider Athena 1.2 [Sense(less)/CM6/2D or 3D Gallery]

This is a new kind of Sense(less) Froyo ROM mixed with many customizations found in CM6, Desire Z and even Gingerbread.​


Please do not publicly release versions of my work without my prior approval​

I decided to make a ROM based on the stability of the HTC Sense framework but include a lot of things found in CM6 and a tiny bit from the Z ROM. All of the apps are fully integrated with each other so the ROM feels complete. You get the great features of Sense like the camera and contacts and get to enjoy it with tons of customizations and other vanilla applications. I spent over a month creating this from just the RUU. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This ROM is far from a finished product in respect to my plans for its future; however, it is quite stable in its current form.


The links to download are in the second post and in Rom Manager.

The ROM install works with both Amon_Ra and Clockworkmod recoveries. For the time being, flashing mods over this ROM (other than what you find here) is done at your own risk. I do not guarantee any will work. If you want to experiment, be my guest. Just remember to backup your data.

WARNING: I am not responsible for any damage that may happen directly or indirectly to your phone as a result of flashing this ROM. Thank you for taking a risk and flashing my ROM! :D

When using Titanium restore applications ONLY and no SYSTEM DATA!! Also, I recommend NOT restoring sms/mms messages when restoring from a different ROM.

Directions for link:
  • Download the ROM from the link below
  • Place it on your sd card
  • Reboot into recovery
  • Do a nandroid backup
  • Perform a full wipe (recommended unless upgrading)
  • Select "install zip from sdcard"
  • Select the file and you're on your way to happiness
Directions for ROM Manager:
  1. Download ROM from ROM Manager under Ihtfp69
  2. When it finishes, select both options (wipe unless upgrading and backup)
  3. Rom Manager will reboot and install what you have chosen
