Download and install HTC One (M8) Sense 6.0 launcher to Nexus 5. Porting the new Sense 6.0 launcher and ROM to other devices is becoming the new trend nowadays. Many developers are porting this ROM to their devices. Until ow, it has been ported to many HTC devices such as HTC One (M7) and the older device, Evo 4G LTE.

A developer has made the ROM available for the LG Nexus 5. It is still at Alpha phase which means that it is by no means a fully working firmware. Yes, a few things work but many other things have bugs and problems.


If you want to install this port, here is a list of all the things that are currently working: Touchscreen, WiFi,Vibration module, Bluetooth and Light, Orientation and Proximity sensors; And not working: Mobile Internet Data, Sound, NFC, Camera, Accelerometer and Gyroscope sensors as well as GPS.
