Completely rebuilt based on Mysense 2.3.4 Leak!
Please post any problems, questions, and feature requests in this thread. It is helpful to consolidate all of these things in one thread to allow me to get to them quickly. I check this thread very frequently and will do my best to answer all questions quickly, and provide all of the support that I can. Help me make this ROM great and let me know what i can do to make it better!
Some people may wonder what the purpose of this ROM is. Why would you remove the sense aspects of a Sense ROM, when you could just use gingerbread? The way I see this ROM is it is the best of both worlds. It gives you the speed and battery life of gingerbread, with some of the desired sense apps, widgets, and features of Sense.

can't wait to try it.
if i can ask, what prompted the move from xda to here? (basic public announcement type info is fine.)
I'm kind of new to this stuff... what is the etiquette on donating for a ROM? Does it go to an individual (lead dev), or to the team? How much is customary? Any link to a good place to find this info?
I'll try to be more quiet and stay out of the way, as I'm not able to give much input except the occasional bug report. Love what you guys are doing, though. Thanks again.
As far as donations there is no such thing as donation etiquette. The decision to donate is completely yours and you can and should do whatever you feel is necessary. None of us develop to make money, so any donation is icing on the cake and is appreciated. As far as the rest of it, the decision lies with you. If you want to make a donation to the team, I can point you in the right direction and the same goes for if you wish to make a donation to a specific developer. Just ask for the information and we will provide you with it.
Please do run RoyalSenseless through the ringer. I am welcome to suggestions and feature requests and if you should encounter a problem (although i hope you don't) any information is helpful in solving the problem.
I always enjoy when I'm able to run Senseless. It's such a unique and fun build. Keep it up KC!
Thought you guys might find this interesting. This is with moderate/heavy use and it still lasted me over 24 hours.
Does this version have the Sense 3.0 Lock screen and MMS?
No not right now, they are both things I am trying to incorporate.
