Default (GUIDE)How to get ROOT,WIFI+BT, CWM Recovery, Face unclock + Gapps for ICS BETA

Hey Guys, Just thought I would put together everything in one thread for everyone so you guys can get everything available for ICS beta atm, Most of this is thanks to DoomLord!


Firstly, To have CWM Recovery, Hotboot any kernel. I will explain

1. Download a kernel e.g Doomkernel v19 and hotboot via fast boot
Type in Fastboot boot boot.img
Then boot while repeatly pressing back button/volume rockets to enter recovery.
This will not flash this kernel only boot it so nothing else required
2. Then get into recovery by pressing volume rockers and flash whatever you need, after this reboot your device and thats it
Well it does require you to have PC access everytime you want recovery but it will have to do for now



OR for easier way simply install this CWM installer made by pvyparts which works fine with ics beta rom and don't need PC for it.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1437840
It could cause issues as this CWM isn't made for this but no issues have been reported as of now.


To Get faceunclock and google apps such as market, gmail:

1. Go to FXP Cm9 thread and download their latest gapps and flash via recovery( use method above for recovery)


To get ROOT access:

1.Flash the superuser fix via recovery ( access recovery via method above)
2. Go to the market and download busybox by Stephen Sterricson and then select any version of busybox and install it. NOW YOU HAVE ROOT




Thanks to Binary, We have WIFI And Bluetooth now too. Go into build.prop via Root explorer, OI file manager (free) or other file explorers:
add these lines into system/build.prop
persist.wifienabled=1
persist.btenabled=1

OR flash the package by Doomlord via recovery ( use method above). Much easier



Now we have everything that is needed Thanks to Binary and Doomlord once more.




Always leave a Thanks if someone helped you in any way

You can just hot boot doomkernel after installing se boot.img by

Fastboot boot boot.img

Once u restart from recovery it will revert to the original kernel

Hi guys,

I think Bin4ry's fix was that there's a line in build.prop called persist.wifienabled which needs to be set to 1 (true).
I'm backing up my ROM and then I'll try it on my arc, see if it works.

Cheers

EDIT: it works perfectly ;)
