F.A.Q for Sensation ICS LeeDrOiD
F.A.Q For LeeDrOiD Sensation ICS
- When you flash the ROM, you MUST
complete at least one full boot before applying any patches or themes.
- For some of the below operations, you will need a root file explorer. A good one to use is ES File Explorer
, free of charge via the Android Market and included in the ROM. You will need to check root access in settings and mount system for it to work.
- The first boot
after flashing any rom can take up to 10 mins (especially following a full wipe), this is because the dalvik-cache needs to be re-built.
- Do I need to wipe
? It is always recommended, however you can just flash the rom over the current one without a wipe, providing you are using the ROM from the same Chef and that the base build is the same. A full wipe should be done if you face continuous troubles with the ROM or feel performance is not what it should be.
FC on Sence. Seems like ICS atm don´t like apps on the SD Card, try to move them over to the phone

F.A.Q. For LeeDrOID Sensation ICS
Q 1: How do I flash this ROM?
Assuming you have S-Off, and have installed a custom recovery – Reboot the phone into recovery (switch off then back on holding volume down, at the fastboot menu select recovery). Select “Install Zip from SD Card” – Select the ROM from your SD and press power – Confirm and you are good to go.
Q 2. What is S-OFF or Recovery?
A detailed explanation on how to do is here
Q 3: Which radio should I use?
This is a trick question. According to many users over the years, they have recommended to change the radio only if you are facing troubles with the current one that you are using. Radio is a very very very location specific thing. So, what works for me, may not work for you. Here
is a good thread discussing radios and their performance. Generally, Lee
will put the recommended radio in the first post.
Q 4: Is the radio included in the ROM? How do I flash?
No, you will need to flash the radio separately.
Easiest steps to flash a radio is (assuming you have sdk
and HTC Drivers
and are S-OFF)
- Put the radio.img in the folder where fastboot is under sdk\tools
- Turn off your phone and and reboot into Bootloader and select fastboot, connect the phone to the pc - now you show see Fastboot USB on the phone.
- Goto command prompt on your pc. Goto the folder with Fastboot.
- Type*fastboot flash radio radio.img*and watch it write the new radio.
If the file is named PG58IMG.ZIP, then simply copy it to the root folder of the sd card and reboot into bootloader and follow instructions on the phone screen.
Read about radios and RILs Here
Information on RIL can be found Here
Q 5: Right or recommended order of flashing?
Q 6: Should I use a task killer on the LD ROM?
and decide for yourself.. (Lee would say, NO!
Q 7: Backup? What is that?
A good idea is to back up all your data and settings from the phone before flashing a new rom with a full wipe. Best app available is Titanium Back up
(included in the ROM)
The best way to back up the contacts is to sync it via HTC Sync or via your gmail.
Q 8: Are Nandroid and Titanium backup the same thing? How do I manage backups?
No, Nandroid backs up the ROM and Titanium backs up the applications. Nandroid is what you do using the recovery and it makes the exact image of your ROM along with the data.
Q 9: On what occasion will I lose my data (apps, contacts etc)?
Only when you apply the full wipe or the super wipe (see next question, Answer 3). When you just flash a rom or a .zip from recovery, it will not wipe anything unless otherwise mentioned.
Q 10: I was on stock (or another rom from another cook) and I flashed LeeDroiD ROM, now I am having some problems.
1. Try to rebooting the Phone and see if it makes a difference.
2. Reboot into recovery
and clear cache and dalvik
, reboot the phone and clear data
of the apps causing problem.
3. If nothing else works, “SUPERWIPE”
. Beware: A superwipe/ full wipe will erase EVERYTHING on the phone. EVERYTHING! So, be sure to backup what you want
Q 11: How do I flash Full wipe or Superwipe and what does it erase?
Copy the .zipfile to the SD Card and flash it via recovery. DONOT REBOOT once it is done, flash the ROM straightafter. The full wipe will erase data, cache, system and format in EXT4 partition. Superwipe will erase data, cache, system, boot and system files on SD card (EXT4 again).
Q 12: The screen is not very responsive and is lagging.
Let the phone settle down a bit after you unlock it. It generally needs a few seconds to kick up the CPU. Some discussions on the screen responsiveness and a market app Here
Q 13: The market is not installing anything. Gives error.
Reboot into recovery and select “clear cache partition”. And under settings - applications - Manage applications - under the Market app < Clear Data>.
Q 14: I don’t like the CRT on and off animations, what can I do to disable these?
CRT Animations are included.
Q 15: My battery is draining heavily.
When you first flash a ROM this is what happens. Give it atleast one full charge cycle and it should come back to normal. If required, reboot into recovery and clear battery stats. It is advisable to do so on 100%. Here is the battery caliberation
app from the market. You can try this.
The battery calliberation script is now included in the rom and stats wiped when at 100%, automatically. This is done only once.
Q15: My battery is draining heavily .
A: When you first flash a ROM this is what happens. Give it atleast one full charge cycle and it should come back to normal. If required, reboot into recovery and clear battery stats. It is advisable to do so on 100% charge. Here is the battery calibration app from the market.
Common Opinion - Heavy battery drain is one thing that you cannot complain about on this rom, for sure. The battery life is much above average
Q16: Should I run the phone battery to zero percent, and what if it does??
A: Absolutely not! Both the current recoveries are giving problems while pulling the battery up from zero percent. If the phones dies off due to battery being zero, look here
, might help. The new recovery from ROM Manager
claims to have fixed the charging issue.
Q17: MMS Problem?
A: Please check your APN settings. Or try the patch from here
. Also worth checking out Shroomster's post
Q18: Some games that use the motion/G sensor are not working as they should.
A: Re-Calibrate your Gsensor –> Settings – Display – Gsensor Callibration
Q19: I dont like the animations. Dont want them.
A: Go to settings - display - animations. Or go to Spare parts and disable all animations.
Q20: How do I change the bootanimation or the downanimation?
A: System\Customize\Resource again. Replace the bootanimation.zip file with the one you want. The new file must be named bootanimation.zip/downanimation.zip.
Q21: Can I modify frequencies using SetCPU?
A: Avoid set cpu at this stage. It is causing much troubles. The app needs to be updated for dual core usage.
Q22: GPS Problems?
A: Try faster fix app
from the market. Has helped a few members.
Q23: I am having difficulties assigning ringtones from my SD card on the 3.6 sense.
A: Go to contact, select ringtone. Select ADD where it shows a list of system ringtone - Now it should take you to your music and tones on the SD card. Select the one that you want and click OK. Back on the system ringtones, scroll to find the newly added tone and select it.
Q24: The search capacitive button does nothing, only on press and hold I get menu to select from. I want the normal search action.
A: Download and install the Google Search
from the market.

Jailbreaking and rooting could soon become illegal again, unless you act now.
Back in July of 2010 the US government ruled that jailbreaking and rooting weren’t a crime as long as the intention behind them isn’t circumventing copyright.
The ruling is set to expire soon and unless renewed, jailbreaking and rooting of smartphones will become illegal once again.
An organization called the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has issued a petition that anyone can sign – the idea is to get enough objective opinions in favor of renewing the ruling. The EFF also wants to add tablets to the agreement.
You can find all the details on the source link below. Keep in mind that signing up to renew the agreement closes on February 10.
Whether jailbreaking is legal or illegal may not matter much to the end user, but not voting for legalization would surely put all the hard-working devs outside the law.
