Default [Q] Desire S - Which ROM to install?

Hello,

I have a Desire S which is now s-off and rooted with the following specs:

bootloader = 2.00.2002
baseband = 3822.10.08.04_M
Main version = 2.10.110.8
Platform = HBOOT-7230
ModelID = PG88****
CIDnum = 11111111
bootloader = ebd3df7d

It has a t-mobile branding and qwerty keyboard in dutch. I want a ROM which is unbranded and which has a azerty keyboard and dutch.

Is subsequent ROM compatible with my specs and my wishes (unbranded and azerty keyboard and dutch) and will it normally install without a problem?

RUU_Saga_S_HTC_Europe_2.10.401.9_Radio_20.4801.30. 0822U_3822.10.0

Or do you know a better alternative ROM to install which suites my wishes?


Thanks for the feedback.

I tried different roms on my desire s.

Gingerbread roms like bindroid, runnymed or miui are very stable an fast.

If you would like an ics rom, I would prefer the cyanogen mod 9 rom. It is the first ics rom where the camera, videocamera and panorama is working without any problems. It is very fast and stable.

To get a keyboard with dutch language I can suggest the SwiftKey X app that you can get at the google play store. With installation the app leads you to download the right language for your keyboard.

Hi, I'm a noob. I recently made the move from stock GB and tried using a few different ROM's (Basic CM7, MIUI v4, Reaper V2.2 and some more). The only one which works for me without a flaw is Reaper, no issues there. All the rest, incl CM7 basic, give me a problem with the wifi (says error when I try to turn it on). I tried reinstalling, cleared/wiped all data, caches from clockwork - did all the steps, but still the same.

I love Reaper but was hoping to try out some more ROM's which might not give me issues with wifi. Any ideas?

Try rcmix runny rom, its the best sense rom I think. If you dont like sense, then cm7 must works for you. If not maybe you should try to flash another radio.

Since my last post here, I tried CM9 Alpha ICS as suggested above by trumpetmichel and I have to say, no major issues so far. Thanks for your suggestion though.
