There's a reason that the Nexus 4 has been sold out almost since it hit the Play Store: for custom ROM enthusiasts, buying anything else is a crapshoot. Assuming that the bootloader is unlocked (or can be,) you've just got to hope there's enough adoption among ROM developers to ensure a steady stream of builds. Owners of T-Mobile's former flagship, the HTC Amaze 4G, have had relatively good options in this area, and they just got a little better: the CyanogenMod team has released official nightly builds of CM10. Owners of the older Sensation 4G can also join the party.

Both devices are supported in an experimental capacity. For the purposes of CyanogenMod's builds, this is basically a "beta" tag - the Amaze and Sensation may eventually become fully supported, or they may not. Those who flash can also expect a higher than average number of bugs in these builds, though they should be taken care of through various releases.

If you're hunting for your phone on CyanogenMod's release site, remember that they use manufacturer codenames: The Amaze 4G is the "Ruby" while the Sensation is "Pyramid." Have fun, ROM addicts.

    Awesome! I had given up hope on the Sensation getting any CM or AOKP updates.

    Protip: choose your next phone wisely. Choose a Nexus.

    And yeah, drop cdma carriers if necessary.
    If not a Nexus, at least let it be Sony. Read CM's developers G+ and you'll understand me.

    Flashed my Amaze last night, seems close to perfect so far! Only thing I got was a little bit of weirdness with NFC at first but fiddling with it and a reboot seemed to fix it right up!

    • giant22000

      Would you care to elaborate what you've done to get NFC working as it's not working for me either... Thanks.

  • Simon Belmont

    Good. Now bring it to my EVO 3D.

    The Sensation is basically the same phone, but not 3D, and has slightly less RAM. We missed official CM7.x and CM9, so official CM10 would be nice.

    Wow! This is awesome for the Amaze 4g users! Lets break it down, this phone was released in October 2011, has hspa+ capabilities on at&t and t-mobile (42Mbps on t-mobile), Dual core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon, 1GB of ram, expandable microSD card slot, SuperLCD and now potentially has CM10 support!!! lol, Simply Amazing! As far as I concerned, this is still a top spec'd phone with good support. I don't see any reason for the Amaze 4G users to upgrade other than just wanting something new, because this phone has a lot of life left in it!

    Hi Frends,
    I need to change my HTC Amaze 4G(Ruby) from 2.3 to jellybean. I rooted the phone and tried CM 10.1 nightly version. But its not working as after installation is complete the phone will be rebooted and hangs with a white screen. For gods sake i had taken a recovery image and i was saved. Please help me with a good CM jellybean ROM.
