I am running it without any issue. It is a combo of cyanogenmod 7 and sense. TV out, 780p video and full camera as you would get from sense plus some cyanogenmod enhancements. It is stable but com.htc.bpg force close message from time to time. Most stable rom I have run so far.

Flashed it last night after CM 7 #55 had nothing special.... I must say, I like this ROM, its exactly what it says it is... a nice mix of Sense and CM I am going to try it out for a few days.... Also, its nice to have the sense camera options back.
I only have 2 complaints... But let me start by saying it is nice to have sense back, but with sense comes my first gripe... WHY must sense force a user to have 7 screens. personally I only need 3 at most. next gripe... It is freakin awesome to have the dropdown notification bar with the CM7 toggles baked in. BUT we can only select 6 at the most, I would like to use more so that way i don't need to use BW toggles or DL any other type of toggle widgets to compensate for this... Anyway, so far these are the only two main things I have found to bug me, no pun intended. other than that, this is a great hybrid ROM.

Im running it, It seems really good. Everything works, good bat life, no issues.
NGC, the fc on the com.htc.bpg issue, supposedly if you freeze or uninstall weather apk, it will cause that, usually only once per reboot.
ACD is making mods for it as fast as he can search xda for skyraider 4.0 themes by ACD.

I loaded it also. Seems nice and smooth. I like the customizable notification widgets. I'm still testing battery life. I hate that you can't read music from internal memory. I wish htc would fix this. Does this work in the Thunderbolt? Anyone know?Please use the Thanks button below and to the right.

Day two of this ROM and I am impressed by the battery life so far... I have NOT flashed any special kernels either.... I unplugged my phone at 8 am this morning, it is almost 4pm right now and I am still at 75 percent.
Other than the stock peep and friendstream (which I removed with titanium) I am really liking this ROM and have not yet found the need to use my ADW EX. so far, so good
Spent the weekend with SR 4.0 and I'm really happy to be back on Sense after several months on CM. I love the diaper and FB integration. I've had only one issue so far, the keyboard lagging on one message, but that could be SwiftKey. Battery life definitely better than CM7. Still playing with the customizations but so far I like what I'm finding. I may just keep this until my next device upgrade.

After a full day's use I'm really liking this Sense based ROM. I didn't think I would leave CM7, and I still will probably go back, but right now This seems like just about the perfect mixture of the two. I really like the latest apps option on the pull down notifications, but I agree with ssethv, only 6 power notification toggles? Whats that all about? Not that big a deal but its puzzling. I also really love the speed and smoothness of this ROM and also am having some really good battery life as well. Love the lock screen options...I had really gotten used to the CM7 vanilla style so it's good to be able to have it here as well.
Overall a VERY nice job on this ROM. If there were ever a ROM that kept me from going back to CM7 full time this would be it. If this ROM had the profiles built into to it like CM7 does I'd definatly be making this my "permanent" (quotes around it because let's be honest...even the most permanent of my ROMs has only lasted about a month)"I drank what?" -Socrates

Skyraider 4.0 is the last ROM I want to try. I flashed Carbonite Fusion .5 over the weekend and so far it's the smoothest I've used (Cyanogen, Warm Z and Carbonite). I definitely want to try Skyraider just from what I have read, but I probably won't do it unless Carbonite starts acting up.

i was a big fan of sky 3.5 so of course i tried this one. over all its more of the same, which is a good thing. only thing im running into i dont like is the keyboard. i miss the old one where i could long press almost any button and get to keys beneath it. I've also yet to figure out how to hide the keyboard, 3.5 had a hide keyboard button this one seems to be missing. I do like that i can wake the phone up now with the optical trackball.
battery life seems really good though. i unplugged yesterday at around 8 am and now 25 hours later i've still got 30% battery left. Now granted sunday's isnt a heavy usage day for me but that is some texting, a few calls and internet browsing at damnyouautocorrect. im sitting at work now and seeing how long i can last before plugging it in.

Also, when the keyboard is up and you want it stowed just hit the back arrow...the main button back arrow on the phone itself, not the backspace on the keyboard. Not the most elegant solution but it should work."I drank what?" -Socrates

Go into recovery >advanced>wipe battery stats.Th wipe battery stats is just below the dalvik cache
As far as that app working I just started using it first on dx. Tried it on dinc after I flashed skyraider 4.0. I guess it worked but I was getting great battery life before as well so not 100% if it did.

I am really liking this ROM.... my battery is holding up much better then compared to some OTHER Roms I have had zero issues thus far. also, I am loving my 16gb sd card... makes it easy to jump from nand(ROM) to nand(ROM) and not worry about spending an hour resetting everything up...
