MiniSense v3 For Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 Smartphone

MiniSense, as the name implies, is a custom android rom with HTC's Sense like User Interface for Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570 smartphone. This rom aims to provide the taste of beautiful looking sense user interface on a smartphone with touch-wiz UI. And, the effort to provide the full HTC interface continues even with version 3 of MiniSense rom. In this latest version, the developer has included LP Sense launcher, Agile Lock and a beautiful looking Sense like theme (which you can select in Theme Chooser) and put them together in CyanogenMod rom so as to emulate the sense like User Interface.

With MiniSense v3, you've got a beautiful set of wallpapers, a set of LP sense widgets for your HomeScreen as well as huge customization on Lock-screen which includes (but not limited to) the ability the set Widgets in LockScreen, set shortcuts (up to 4 applications) so as to have instant access right from Lock screen and many more. You can view details of these feature in the screen shots as well as a video showing MiniSense on my galaxy pop or mini s5570 smartphone posted at this article. However, in this article I've included some of the features of this rom as well as the instructions on installing and configuring this rom to get Sense like UI.

So, let's have a look at some of the features of MiniSense v3 rom and the change log of latest version borrowed right away from the developer's thread at xda-forum.

So, we'll need to configure it get Sense UI and HTC theme. For this run Theme Chooser app from App Drawer and select Alpha7 theme and apply it. Now, run agile lock full and as it says first of all select LP Sense UI as your default Home App (Launcher App). When, you are done, run Agile lock full application again and press the Start button to set it as your default lock screen. You can use the settings button to configure the lock screen according to your preferences. Also, don't forget to restart your launcher, if the icons are not changed from the system defaults.
