How To Install Android HD ROM On HTC Sensation:

Flashing custom ROMs is a root-only privilege, so if you haven’t rooted your HTC Sensation yet, you will not be able to flash Android Revolution HD. You may follow XDA’s own guide on how to root HTC Sensation here. Be sure to backup data on your HTC Sensation before proceeding. Although this has been confirmed to work, there is always the chance of something going wrong.

Step 1: Download the custom ROM to your PC [Direct Link]. It is a 350MB download, so be prepared to wait if you’re on a slow connection. Also download the Super Wipe script fromhere.

Step 2: Once download is complete, connect your Sensation with your PC and transfer the two .zip files you downloaded in Step 1 to the root of your phone’s SD card.

Step 3: Disconnect your phone from the PC. Shut it down and boot into ClockworkMod recovery mode (this should be installed already if you have a rooted Sensation). You can do this by keeping Volume Down + Power button pressed while booting up the phone.

Step 4: (Warning: This is an important step which involves wiping your data. Be sure to back up beforehand!) Navigate to install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sdcard and click which you transferred to the root of your SD card in Step 2.

Step 5: Once SuperWipe has done its job, select choose zip from sdcard once again and click on which you transferred to the root of your SD card in Step 2.

Step 6: After the ROM has been flashed, reboot your HTC Sensation.
