BulletSenseFX: Best Sense 4.0a ROM For HTC Explorer

It has been long time that people have been asking me about the best ROM for the little HTC Explorer. Since I too own one, i can say that finally I have found a ROM that is way better than any other HTC Sense ROM that is available for the little droid that performs well beyond it’s own capabilities. We’ve been receiving a lot of negative responses regarding the Sense 4.0a ROM which was originally ported by derefas as it had too many issues that affected the user experience. As a reply to that, we have this BulletSenseFX ROM modded by bulletproof136 which is based upon Sense 4.0a build#7 by derefas but topped up with numerous tweaks and a pinch of Sense 5.0 in the interface.

Now wipe all previous data/Do a factory reset including dalvik cache in order to avoid “Low memory” issues and then select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to the root folder of your sd card and flash the zip file you downloaded above.  Wait for the program to terminate, it may take a bit longer than usual flashing as it flashes some part of data to your sd-ext partition.
