HTC Sense 5.0 hacked to run on the Droid DNA

HTC Droid DNA was outed as the first handset with a Full HD 1080p display, and Verizon was graced with the exclusive privilege to carry it. One downside of Big Red's phones is the slow rate of software version updates and customizations, but that's why we have the XDA-Dev forums and enthusiasts.

Thanks to them, the Droid DNA is being loaded with HTC's newest Sense 5.0 UI, before the first phone officially carrying this interface - HTC One - has even hit the market.

Most everything is working, save for the highly specific Zoe media collage software, and the MMS messaging system. If you are interested, head over to the XDa-Devs thread in the source link below for a test drive of the new, minimalistic Sense 5.0 on your trusty Droid DNA.
