Pyr'o'Ice SENSE 1.1.1 - Android 4.0.3 + HTC Sense 3.6

Based on HTC Sensation ICS ROM, HTC Sense 3.6, Android 4.0.3
Resized for WVGA.
Using Pyr'o'Ice kernel 1.0.3

kernel sources:


0., Use latest CWM recovery and S-off
1., Copy to SDcard
2., Full wipe needed
3., install the zip
4., Read this first post all through for a lot of information that might come handy!!
5., Read the Limitations how you can workaround things.

- Wifi tethering: please use third party apps as described here
- USB storage mode: please read this how it's possible
- 1080p video size won't work, don't try that
- WiFi calling is not included
- If in Rosie home longtap rearrange mode, Edit or Remove is not working, reboot.
- htc music player works with the lock screen as this is a sense rom with widgets and lockscreen. But unfortunately theres a bug that makes music playback mono in htc music player if any system sound happens: workaround mute those sounds, also you might switch on Vibrate for notification, and enjoy beats music that way.
- If you're having trouble with occasional screen blackouts, please consider trying to revert to a not so much undervolted kernel, and/or try this:
Download Android Terminal Emulator from market. Start it, and type (after rebooting, you must do this everytime.If it helps people with this problem, i'll include it in a new update soon):
~ su
# echo -n 15 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold

Apps that still need resize:
- Pattern Lockscreen
- Dial Pad
!! apply the Fixes found in update section (if theres any for the latest release) for best experience, just flash them right after flashing the ROM while being in recovery, or you can install them later in Recovery, no wipe needed !!

WARNING: DON'T SELECT System Settings / Wireless&networks More / Tethering&Portable Hotspot / Portable WIFI-Hotspot or use the HTC Wifi Hotspot app!!! It will freeze/reboot in cycle your phone!!! Use Barnacle + OpenGarden wifit tethering market apps instead, it works.
- DON'T TRY 1080p or MMS size in Video recording please, it doesnt work, and after it will make exit the Camera app when you try to take picture. If you did, a Reboot will fix it
- If you want 'Unknown sources' to be settable in SystemSettings/Security, you must not have an Exchange account sync added. That's a bug in the htc rom it seems. Remove the account, set the 'Unknown sources' flag, and re-add your exchange account. Or if you are freshly set up, set this option, and add you Exchange acc only after that.

- Bluetooth should be fixed, stable

- Calculator size fixed
- Added AOSP Email/Exchange so people with bad luck (exchange server with encryption requirement) can use that alternatively with this ROM, syncing Contacts/Email/Calendar.. In Settings/Accounts&Sync add Exchange ActiveSync for HTC Email app sync, or use Email (yellow icon account type) account for the AOSP emial/exchange sync if you prefer

Will there be any problems if I use the HTC Music with Beats in this rom?

---------- Post added at 01:26 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:46 AM ----------

Needs resizing:
Pattern Lock
Weather App
Deleting/Rearranging Icons Interface
Dock Mode
Dial Pad


When you take a picture and the picture is on it's preview the camera options bar gets unsized. (You can't easily press share etc.)
Down Animation (Can just make copy of and rename it right?)

Damn!!!!!a You've taken this Device out the gutter. We have CM7, AOSP Style ICS, a Sense 3.0 Port, and your 3.5 Rom. This is crazy

I found an odd bit. I entered my corporate exchange e-mail stuff just like always. It had me enter a pin for security like normal. Then it wouldn't let me go on and seems to demand that I encrypt the device. None of my other ROMs do this oddly enough. I flashed back to the AOSP nandroid and no such problem.


EDIT: When I nandroided back to 1.0.1 and dumped the corporate e-mail acct and tossed the security settings to start that bit over. I was able to configure the corp exchange acct and set the PIN without it demanding encryption. I am confused why Sense is different.
