The Virtuous team have been hard at work and been able to successfully port the leaked HTC Endeavour RUU (0.96.401.2) to the HTC Sensation. While it is based on a developer RUU, it should be used with caution and is not suggested as a daily/production ROM. But if you want a first look at what Sense 4 looks like without having to wait, then it's worth a flash to your Sensation.
Screenshots from the XDA Thread:
You can download and get support from the XDA thread located here. By the way, Build 3 is coming soon by the looks of the post on the thread.

The ROM runs really nice at the moment and consider that this is only with the stock HTC kernel. Wait till Faux gets his hands on this new gem!
Until then, go grab the ROM
and new Radio required from XDA.
NOTE: Do not use the Radio with any ROM's at the moment. It has been found to cause black screens and random reboots that require battery pulls. Stay with your current radio and manually flash the RIL for it from XDA.
Mike 1986 has done it once again and took XDA by storm by releasing a brand new rom on an unreleased HTC source 3.06.405.1 which features the official Sense 3 for the HTC Desire HD. This ROM is a world's first since it is built the with official RUU and not simply ported from another device or a Chinese leak. The new ROM builds upon an already popular ROM and brings a new 'Sense' of speed to the table along with all those widgets and functions of Sense 3 that you have been all waiting for. The official change log is posted below:
- First HTC Desire HD ROM with official Android 2.3.5

- You need to use Super Wipe to flash this ROM! - Don't flash any themes or mods from 5.2.x series! - Remember to remove SetCPU or any other CPU tuner in order to have O/C Daemon working - Read this post to learn about O/C Daemon
A superwipe is customary for this new ROM due to the new base. The ROM will be unsupported if you do not super wipe. As always downloads and support can be found on the XDA thread.
