This is a port of the flyer version bu Gumby63 found in this thread:
[ROM][HC][WIFI] DeSensified v1.6 l 1-3-12 - xda-developers

You must already be on Honeycomb and have recovery installed.

This is version 1.5 of DeSensed-View. This is the most AOSP debloated experience you can have on your View

Based off the HTC View HC OTA
init.d support
Stock HC Launcher
Stock HC Notification bar/navigation
Stock HC wifi signal meters
Stock HC Keyboard
Stock HC Bootanimation
Stock HC Browser
Stock HC MMS
Stock HC Email App
Stock HC Camera
A lot of the sense/htc apps and launcher removed
sprint bloat removed
**** NOTE the HTC scribe functionality has not been removed from the rom so the scribe should function just as it would on the stock HC rom

Needs to be done:
figure out how to change the settings or if I cant at least theme it out
make more changes to framework and systemui.apk

Wishful thinking
Removing the sense 3.0 lockscreen for stock HC lock screen
(any guidance is appreciated)

I am not responsible if you flash this and you brick your

DO NOT FLASH IF YOU ARE ON GINGERBREAD.. Follow the threads in the forum to learn how to upgrade to HC and get/keep s-off

Download Link: Version 1.5
WIFI ONLY: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
To enable sprint 3g/4g service flash this zip after you have flashed the rom(you can flash it right after flashing the rom) Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

To remove the shortcuts from the lockscreen(recommended) flash this zip AFTER you have flashed the rom and AFTER you have booted into it once and ran the setup wizard. Flashing this zip before you boot the rom at least once will cause a bootloop. again.. flash this AFTER you have flashed the rom, AFTER it has booted once and AFTER you have run the setup wizard Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

Previous version DL link:
Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

Installation Instructions:
If coming from another ROM perform a FULL wipe in clockwork recovery: mounts and storage -> format /system format /data format /cache
If updating from a previous version of this rom just wipe the caches unless told otherwise
Flash the rom zip

ALL CREDIT GOES TO Gumby63 for his flyer rom:

I am looking forward to loading your ROM once mine arrives. Glad to see this was posted here in addition to the original posting over at XDA-Dev.

Graffixnyc's Change Log:

Alpha 0
first release... was named b.zip same as Gumby63's changes above

Alpha 1:
A few more HTC APK's removed
HTC Music app replaced with Google Music App
Gmail app replaced with one from Asus Transformer Rom (file size was a little bigger) and is now the tablet version(it was the phone version in alpha 0)
removed stocks widget and app
removed HTC Hub
Added ad blocking host file
fixed car panel showing up twice in app drawer
fixed bootanimation and used the stock HC bootanimation

Alpha 2:
Added stock browser (Thanks Cimer!)
Added Stock mms app
Added HTC contact app (stock is giving me issues)

version 1:
Same as alpha 2 with HTC clock removed

version 1.1
fixed capacitive buttons from lighting up
removed some more HTC apps
added hc blue battery icon with %
made a couple other small changes to the framworks
updated SU binary and superuser.apk

Version 1.2
fixed clock settings from force closing
removed HTC car panel(Replaced with car home) and locations
removed a couple of other htc apps
used the launcher from an Asus Transformer rom (file size was smaller and it seems more responsive, snappy)

Version 1.3
There are two versions now. One optimized for wifi only and the other with all the 4g stuff
Changes in both versions:
HTC Camera removed replaced with Asus Transformer Camera app. Now you can access the gallery right from the camera app

init.d fully set up now. It was always enabled I just had to find some scripts I wanted to use and also fix permissions in the update script:
scripts: v6 supercharger, SD card speed increase, mounts, zipalign

Facebook, twitter(if you want them get them from the market), dock mode, flickr, HTC slideshow widget(no longer works because HTC gallary removed) have all been removed

Changes in the wifi version:
mms.apk removed
hotspot removed
sprint installer removed
phone.apk removed
handsfree activation still removed
init.d script that disables CDMA/Wimax Radios at boot

Changes to the 4G version:
just added back in hands free activation
kept mms, hotspot, Sprint installer(all other sprint bloat removed)

Version 1.4:
More HTC bloat removed(over 50mb worth)
Added Terminal Emulator, Root Browser Lite and Titanium Back up
Update market, flash player, videos and maps
Added down boot animation

I'm only releasing one version from now on. a Wifi version. there is a flashable zip in the OP that will enable the 3g/4g stuff

Issues: When it first boots it prompts you to sign in to your google account right away. Just back out of it and it will start the HTC set up wizard
When in the HTC setup wizard and you get to the time zone section setup will FC if you try changing it. Dont try changing it, just hit "finish" and then manually change it in settings

Version 1.5:
Even more bloat removed. Version 1.3 was 438MB, Version 1.4 was 391MB and now Version 1.5 382 MB
init.d script clean up
added init.d script to mount /system as rw at boot

Re: [ROM][VIEW][HC] DeSensed-View Version 1.3 - 1/9/12 **WIFI and

Would someone help a ROM/rooting noob (me) help get this on my Evo 4G?

I have Honeycomb on it currently. Now, can I just load "recovery" and then somehow get this on it?
