Default Discuss Upgrading Raider (Bell/Rogers) to ICS

After reading for the last 2 days, I am still unsure of exactly how to upgrade my Raider (Canadian) to ICS. There are probably others trying to work out the same. So, to avoid the problem of having noobish questions asked repeatedly in multiple other threads, I have created this thread. If the thread is active, I will try to keep the first couple posts updated to minimize the need to read through multiple pages!

If you are a Dev or experienced, knowledgeable user, I'm sure you see the benefit to answering once in a proper thread.

My thoughts so far:
1. Back everything up and fully charge your device.
2. Have a plan for what you will do if this fails and you brick your device.
2. Unlock your bootloader and Root your device. Link To Slapshot30's Superguide
4. Turn off security on your device (S-OFF) Link to Juopunutbear S-OFF Thread
5. Change your carrier id to "SuperCID" jmone's post on checking and changing your CID
6. Relock your bootloader.

7. This is the step I am unsure of... People seem to use some terms interchangeably, but I'm not sure it is reliable. For example, HBOOT, boot.img and kernal. I think the first two are synonymous but I'm not sure kernal is the same? Since there is no Bell or Rogers ICS, we are going to use another carrier's stock, or more likely, a custom ROM. I have read that you need to replace the HBOOT (boot.img?) with one that is a match for the ROM you wish to install. I think a match generally will be found by (ideally) using the HBOOT recommended by the ROM dev, or secondarily, using the HBOOT for the same carrier and same OS (eg if a rom is based on AT&T 2.3.7, then using the HBOOT extracted from the stock AT&T GB 2.3.7 RUU would work). So, we need to clarify the steps here for HBOOT/boot.img (and kernal?)

8. Install ICS ROM!

_________________________________
Noobs, etc: Ask away and as we get answers I will add them to the FAQ post.

For those that have been successful in applying ICS to their Canadian Raider, please provide precise, detailed explanation of how you did it!

DEV's & other experts, your input would be appreciated. In return, you'll minimize pages of unwanted posts elsewhere!

Okay to start off I have a Bell raider with S-OFF and running Dark Raider 1.2 with the KozmiKKernel Beta 5.

Follow this handy guide made by mohamed_moscow: (word for word)

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1612685

Once you get to the last step you can flash any custom rom and kernel!

Almost glad that I haven't been checking XDA in a while only to come back and see the s-off is working now. Awesome.

DONATE TO ME
After updating my Bell Raider to ICS, I noticed nothing bad except one thing : when I'm in call, the other person I'm talking to is complaining about some feedback thru my phone. They say they hear themselves.

Anyone has the same issue?

My guess is this will get resolved once Rogers releases their ICS OTA/RUU and we have a proper Rogers radio.img.

I just updated the superguide and it should work for all carriers. The basis of it for carriers other than AT&T is....
lock bootloader
run GB RUU for whichever carrier
unlock bootloader
S OFF
flash wcx recovery
update to international ICS hboot
flash wcx recovery
flash custom kernel + ROM
HTC VIVID SUPERGUIDE

BOOTLOADER UNLOCK, PERM ROOT, CWM, FLASHING ROMS/KERNELS, APN SETTINGS, REVERT TO STOCK

If the radio really is the issue, since bell and rogers share identical protocols and frequencies you will be able to use the bell radio. Bell has announced released in june, so if rogers doesn't parallel back you can get s-off and then just apply the new bell radio.
