Hello everyone !

After trying out most of Sensation-XL ROMs, i came up with these Roms:


1- XL 3.6 (v1.2) [Working like a Charm!]
2- XL 3.5 [Working like a Charm!]
3- CoreDroid (v1.2) [Working like a Charm!]
4- Sense 4.0beta (v3) [Working like a Charm!]
5- Insanely cool sense (v2.2.1) [Working like a Charm!]
6- AOSP (Senseless) [Working like a Charm!]
7- AOSP (senseless) based on the new OTA [Working like a Charm!]
8- 3 Musketeers ICS based on the new OTA [Working like a Charm!]

*Before anything do a BACKUP of your ROM, so if something went wrong you can retrieve back*

First: Install "Boot Manager" from Market.

Second: once you run "Boot Manager" for the first time, Superuser will pop up. Allow on everything. And "Boot Manager" will ask for:
A- Phone Setup - > Press OK
B- Warning - > Press OK
Once the app has backed up the PhoneROM boot.img it will give success press ok.

3rd: Then it will take you to the page of PhoneROM, goto settings & enable 'Force Large Boot.img'

Goto 'Manually Set Variables'

You should see the following:

Device: runnymede

sdblock: /dev/block/mmcblk0p33

system size: 1008

data size: 1024

cache size: 567

if any of the above value is different then set it as per above values, else leave it as it is..

go back to PhoneROM page & then scroll to ROM1

select Install Zip

"Warning: Before installing make sure you have Data Connection or wifi ON as the app requires few files from the server to edit boot.img accordingly.."

at Install Zip prompt select install Zip incase of a ROM, select the file from sdcard & select Okay

it will start installing the ROM.. first time installation will take some time as the app will create images for the ROM..

once done boot into the installed rom.. once booted in the new rom, setup your google account, run bootmanager & boot into phone rom.. shouldn't give u any issues.

Tips:
1- When changing from ROM to ROM on [Rom1] Make sure to wipe Data/Cache. (Boot Manager will ask you to do so)
2- Make sure you have 3.5GB free space.
3- If u are installing [XL3.6 Rom] make sure to install it as "Ext4".
4- After booting into the new rom & setting up google account, better to run the market before running bootmanager.
5- If u want to install [CoreDroid Rom], make sure to pick up [runnymede boot.img] and install it as "Ext2" (dont forget to wipe data/cache before installing)
6- While installing [Insanely cool sense] make sure to install it as "Ext4"
7- While installing [AOSP enhanced v1] make sure to install it as "Ext2"
8- While installing [Sense4.0 beta v3] make sure to install it as "Ext4"
9- While installing [AOSP based on the new OTA] make sure to install it as "Ext4"
10- While installing [3 Musketeers ICS based on the new OTA] make sure to install it as "Ext4" .

Advance info on BM & FAQ
More info on Boot Manager

Seker took us through installing a fresh ROM via Boot Manager, but we have more options as well..

Installation option #2:

You can also restore your NANDROID backup via Boot Manager on any slot you want. Procedure is simple, goto BM -> desired ROM slot -> Install Zip -> Restore Nandroid, select the folder & wait for BM to restore it.

Backup installed ROM:

You can also backup ur ROM slot for future use via BM. Goto BM -> ROM Slot to be backedup -> Manage Slot -> Backup Slot.. the procedure will take some time..

Warning: You cannot restore BM taken backup via Recovery as the backup is only BM readable


What to do when the newly install ROM gets stuck at HTC Logo:

Ok, once you have installed the ROM & the procedure went fine.. but once you try to reboot into the new ROM & your device gets stuck at the Splash Screen (HTC Logo).. no worries or no need to flash your PhoneROM again..

Take the Phone Battery out, insert it back & reboot into recovery.. goto Install Zip from SD Card -> browse to Bootmanager folder -> phoneRom -> & flash update.zip.. reboot & u'll be booted in ur PhoneROM

How to access SD Card once in SD ROM:

once booted into the SD ROM, you cannot use the default option to mount ur device SD card with PC, drag down the notification bar & u'll see 'USB Connected!' with a Red USB icon, select it then Mount SD Card & u r good to go, to unmount it use the same method
