Default Help a new Sensation owner choose a rom :)

Hi just got my sensation today to replace my aging Desire

Ive already S-OFF and rooted the handset and installed clockwork mod recovery but have no idea which rom to try. Ideally I want an ICS rom but need one that fully works, the main thing I need is a fully working camera (unlike the ones on the desire) if there is such a rom not too bothered about sense although it is nice, but I quite like the look and feel of ASOP ICS too

I know I need to flash a new firmware on my handset before flashing an ICS rom, failing that what about any GB roms?

ARHD has good ICS and Gingerbread ROM's. Everything works with them.

There's plenty others like RCMix too.

Another couple of questions.

Do I need to do the SuperCID thing?

Ive rooted, installed 4ext and s-off'd and have also just unlocked my phone so can use any simcard.

Next i keep reading about the superwipe script but I cant seem to find it can someone possibly link me to that?

Thanks again

also think im going to try Darkforest 6.0.0

Default Rock solid

Actually ARHD is not a good example for a "fully working" camera. ARHD with GB uses Faux's Kernel as default that actually has a bug with the camera (freezes the phone if you power off the phone with the camera on). If you want no problems, rock solid performance with your phone, I do recommend a ROM with an official HTC RUU as base (Build 1.73 being the latest official GB), working with a stock Kernel. From which dev, that's up to you....
Personally I do not use ICS yet as it doesn't support all the features I'm using with GB.

Ok thanks for that, will have a look at some GB ones, which do you recommend? Also do I need to do the SuperCID procedure?

If you haven't already found it, superwipe download is near the bottom of OP of this thread.

I've been using it since day one with no problems.

If you're thinking of going with DarkForest I can highly recommend it, it's what I've been on for a while

SuperCID, read this thread. If you don't SuperCID you just have to make sure any firmware etc you use is specific to your CID (maybe check out this thread), with SuperCID anything for the Sensation will work for you

Android Revolution HD should be your choice, was my choice few months ago and I don't regret. mike will upgrade to 6.5.1 tonight, if you still has not changed your rom this is the moment to do it.
