Install Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat On HTC Sensation Via CM11 Custom ROM

Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat has been available for lesser devices, most of the flagship devices are in line for it, even in terms of Custom ROMs there aren’t much ROMs available based on Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat and yet HTC Sensation is able to get a chance to taste Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat via CM 11 Custom ROM. The ROM is running SebastianFM’s Overclocked kernel v1.5.2, which if we takes out a little battery life, which then covered up by the Battery mod, is quite good when it comes to performing and more than 620MB of Useable RAM gives you more than enough to take the best out of the device. Since we won’t be using the typical Custom recovery, so there is no need to flash the boot.img Separately.

    hello, perform all the steps as pointed and install correctly, but now restarts only when the main menu appears (htc sensation boot loop), which can not await your response.

    • @garync:disqus try clearing cache and dalvik cache, If it doesn’t work, you might have to go back to stock rom.
