How to switch to stock Android app switcher on HTC Sense 5

Stock Android App Switcher HTC Sense 5

If you are using an HTC device on Sense 5, chances are you’ve already noticed that the stock HTC app switcher has a 9 apps limit. It’s not that of a big deal, but if you’re a power user, you’re most probably bothered by this.

It turns out that it only takes changing two lines of code in a file on the system folder to use the stock Android app switcher instead, which is much much better. So here’s what I did:

Open the default.xml file on system/customize/ACC directory and find these two lines using a text editor:

<item type="boolean" name="isHtcStyleRecentApp">true</item>
<item type="boolean" name="support_HtcStyleRecentApp">true</item>

Now you just need to change the true value to false. Save and reboot. Enjoy your stock Android app switcher!
