Global RUU4.03.605.2: DOWNLOAD
*****MAKE SURE TO MATCH MD5! I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH*****
Flashing RUU's is the ultimate way to brick your device if done incorrectly. Make sure you know what you're doing before you attempt this. At the moment, the files is named GlobalRuuPH98IMG.zip. You will need to delete the "GlobalRuu" part of the name and place that file on the root of your sd card when you're ready.
As usual, the only person to be held accountable for anything you do to your phone is yourself.
May the force be with you.. and stuff.

The Following is a list of questions that I have been asked across all of my roms. Some may apply to this rom, some may not.
Q: "How do I configure wireless tether to work properly?"
A: "Tap menu, then settings.
Change the Device profile to HTC Resound
Change the Setup Method to Netd (master)
Enabling WiFi Encryption is your choice, however, I would recommend it (password protect your hotspot!)
Enabling the encryption will allow you the next option of creating a password for your network.
Changing the SSID is the name of your network hotspot that you want to show as an available network.
You can enable access control if you like but it is not necessary.
Scroll all the way down and check off "Enable routing fix"
That's it! Ready to go."
Q: "Battery percentages do not match what the system shows when power is low or what is showing on the statusbar or lockscreen. Can we fix this?"
A: "This is a known HTC issue and there is not a fix for it at the moment. Your best bet would be to stick with the lowest percentage the system indicates is the remaining power for your battery. There is a 1% battery mod that attempts to give a more accurate reading but it doesn't always work."
Q: "Is this for CDMA only or can we GSM users use this rom?"
A: "I have conveniently included a GSM patch built specifically for this particular rom ONLY and is listed in the Downloads section of post #2 which will enable full functionality of my rom on your network"
Q: "Weather syncing is not working and ends in a force close. Is there a fix?"
A: "I have removed all weather functionality of the rom but I created a flashable zip to add back the missing elements to make it work for you. This zip is located in post #2 of my downloads section"
Q: "Does this ROM suffer from choppiness of the homescreen like many others?"
A: "The choppiness of the homescreen is due to the default settings within Apex Launcher. Users can tweak their individual homescreen transition and scrolling settings to fine tune it's performance to their liking and nearly do away with any lag or choppiness resulting from the preset. A good first start would be to change the wallpaper scrolling to fixed"
Q: "Is this rom for S=OFF ONLY people, or can we S=ON people flash your rom?"
A: "At the moment, I have not created a rom specifically for S=ON flashing. However, if you are on the last few ICS firmware and have the last couple kernels released from the leak, you should be just fine. If you were on an older ics firmware, you will need to flash the kernel's provided in ZHP Pilot's first couple posts after flashing the rom. You will then reboot into hboot where you will need to follow the directions and flash the kernel"
Q: "I am still on Gingerbread firmware. Is this rom old firmware friendly? If not, will the Gingerbread patch I have from another rom work with yours?"
A: "It is not old firmware friendly. However, you can use a Gingerbread Patch from another rom yes. If you do not have one, for the time being it should be listed in the first couple posts by ZHP Pilot. You will also need to make sure you flash the ICS kernel listed in the FAQ above this one"
Q: "In order to use the rom previous to yours, I had to flash the Gingerbread patch. Now that I have flashed your rom, I get thses reboots every 15 seconds. Why is this happening?"
A: "Since you are on the older firmware, you are going to have to flash this patch each and every time you switch to a newer fimrware rom. That will fix the issue"
Q: "I flashed your rom but while I'm on it, it reboots after about 20 seconds every time it gets back to the rom. Why is it doing this?"
A: "You are on the old Gingerbread Firmware or not on an ICS firmware new enough. Either RUU your way to the latest leak or use a Gingerbread patch"
Q: "What is a 5-Point lock?"
A: "It is an AOSP lockscreen that allows for 5 different preset shortcuts to be displayed in the lock ring"
Q: "Is there any way to change the shortcuts to other apps on the 5-point AOSP lockscreen?"
A: "Yes, but you will need to pm xjacobx
your request. Be patient however as he is rarely on-line and very busy"
Q: "Can the Nav bar be enabled?"
A: "Yes, but you will need to pm xjacobx
your request to make it work. Be patient however as he is rarely on-line and very busy"
Q: "I downloaded the rom but want to make sure it downloaded properly before I attempt to flash it. Everyone keeps telling me to check my md5 but I'm not sure how to do it"
A: "Here is a link to the Free md5 checker/generator that I use: http://www.winmd5.com/
. Use that to compare the string of code with that of what I have listed for the rom download. If you can not use this app, you can also view the md5 on your phone via a root browser like root explorer by checking the properties of the zip.
Q: "I'm getting a force close when trying to load a live wallpaper. Is there a fix?"
A: "Not as of yet but I will try to figure it out and provide a flashable of files that I may have deleted in error"
Q: "I can't get music controls to show on the lockscreen. Is there a fix?"
A: "The only way to get the music controls to show on the lockscreen is if you chose to use an app called "Mixzing Free" or choose to use the sense lockscreen instead of my aosp one. The native player will not work on any aosp lock screens (for now). The flashable for the time being for the sense lock is in ZHP's first couple posts"
Q: "I am done with apex launcher and want my sense one back. How can I add it back to your rom?"
A: "There is a flashable and for the time being, it will be in ZHP's first couple posts"
Q: "Although the inverted apps are cool and all, they really make me dizzy. Is there a way I can go back to the stock versions?"
A: "Yes. For now, the flashable zip to restore all non inverted apps are in the first couple posts by ZHP Pilot"
Q: "I'm having issues with my PlayStore/FaceLock/(Insert Google app name here)... Is there any way to fix it?"
A: "Yes. Just flash these gapps: gapps-ICS-04/29/2012
Q: "Which gapps are safe to flash on this rom?"
A: "I would suggest only flashing the latest ICS gapps for any of my roms as listed in the question above"
Q: "Is there any way to make the caller i.d. show up without having to unlock the phone?"
A: "Yes, but it is a workaround and you will not be able to use the lockscreen that comes with the rom. Download "Holo Locker" from the app market. That is the workaround everyone is using and gives you the Jelly Bean lockscreen"
Q: "Does "Google Now" work with this rom? If so, does the voice portion work also?"
A: "Yes google now works. No, the voice portion does not. However, if you can find it, there is a voice workaround called "Voice Search for Google Now!" that when you select the voice option, it will open your native voice to text and insert the spoken text for you. Simply clicking enter after that should get your results. It was once in the app market but was pulled. If you search hard enough, you will find it"
Q: "The Auto brightness toggle/manual settings always go back to the default before I toggled them when I lock my phone. Is there a fix?"
A: "No. This is a known issue on every rom that uses the Tweaks App. This toggle is only good for while the screen is rom. To make the effect last after screen lock however, you will need to go into System Settings/Display/Brightness and change the settings there"
Q: "How do I activate the Beats Mod or the SonyXLoud mod?"
A: "You don't. They are already active"
Q: "Every time I try to select the Personalize option under settings, I get a force close. Will there be a fix for this in the future?"
A: "Eventually yes. By completely removing it. Personalize is a sense function and because I have removed most of the sense elements from this rom, it force closes. So it needs to be removed"
Q: "What is this power Saver function under toggles? I turn it on but nothing happens... How do I make it effective now and what does it do? Also, I noticed you have an app that allows me to tweak the options for Power Saver but I still can't make it take effect."
A: "The power saver option only kicks in when the battery reaches a low percentage and can not be changed. I believe it is somewhere in the range of 30% and below when it goes active. The settings app allows you to tweak what it does once it activates. Power saver functions however will not activate whent he battery reaches critical if you have it turned off in toggle"
Q: "Do you have plans on adding an AOSP mail or mms app?"
A: "Not until certain issues are worked out. The AOSP mail breaks some exchange network functionality and the AOSP mms breaks media messaging like pictures/sound/video"
Q: "I read that you included the Google Sound Search (Google Ears) app in your rom but I can't find it?"
A: "It is a widget. long press your homescreen, select widget, and you will find it"
Q: "I flashed your rom and my phone gets really hot after a while. In fact, Ive noticed it on all the newer roms lately. What could be causing it and how can I attempt to fix it?"
A: "Make sure you have updated your radio to the latest available and then flash the 2nd to latest kernel. This combination has been known to have the best rom performance for all my roms and decreased heat"
Q: "Does this rom have the DIM LED mod?"
A: "Yes and it can be accessed in the tweaks app with most of the available tweaks on this rom"
Q: "When I turn the wifi on, it gets stuck in the "turning on" mode but never comes on. Why is it doing this and how can I fix it?"
A: "The kernel has been installed incorrectly or is not latest enough for the rom. You will need to flash the latest kernels in hboot. This will solve the problem"
Q: "Does this rom include an AD Blocker?"
A: "It does not as it interferes with some market apps that require it. You can however download several free ad blockers from the play store"
Q: "Do you have plans to add Aroma to your roms?"
A: "I may in the future yes"
Q: "I see you included a version of S-Voice that actually works with our Rezound. However, trying to set an alarm, launch calendar or music app, etc ends in a force close. What gives?"
A: "This is due to the fact that S-Voice is a SGS3 exclusive and the built in functions that have it search for the app you want to launch are looking for other exclusive samsung apps like S-Calendar or S-Music etc. The app would need to be hacked to change the default apps it searches for"
Q: "Does Bluetooth work with this rom?"
Q: "My gallery is not showing my pictures nor is my the Latin player showing my music. How do I fix this?"
A: "You just need to clear the cache on those apps and it will solve the problem"
Q: "Can fonts be changed in the tweaks app?"
A: "No, not with the tweaks app"
Q: "I use the Navigation app all the time to get me from point A to point B but it is not in this rom nor can I find it in the market. How can I get it back?"
A: "The navigation app (Blue Chevron for the icon) is actually part of the Google Maps app. Re-Download Google Maps and you will have your Navigation app back"
Q: "I noticed on most roms anything I download goes to the internal memory under the downloads folder. How can I change this to where downloads will go to my sd card's download folder?"
A: "There is a way to do it although I'm unsure of how at the moment. However, if you can change the default downloads folder in tapatalk or the xda app to "Downloads" and anything downloaded through those apps will go to that folder on your sd card"
Q: "I noticed your tweaks force GPU rendering instead of harware rendering. This conflicts with a few games I play and won't allow me to play them until I change it. If it's possible, where would I go to change that?"
A: "It is possible and is as easy as unchecking the option listed under system apps/developer options/Force GPU Rendering"
Q: "My clock doesn't stay hidden or centered when setting it to in the tweaks app. Is there a fix for this?"
A: "No. It is a problem with the tweaks app and there is no fix at the moment for it"
Q: "Everyone else is reporting amazing battery life but mine drains incredibly fast. What can I do to fix this?"
A: "Ensure that you are on the latest radio (1.22.10.0424r, 1.22.10.0424r) 2nd to latest kernel (3.0.14) and that you have no background apps that are using major resources constantly running. Also, make sure to tweak your screen properties/setting as the screen takes up a great deal of power"
Q: "Will there be any way to add switchable equilizers in your rom?"
A: "You can download them yourself. You will have to disable Beats however to use them"
Q: "Every now and then when I toggle bluetooth, it will lock up and not turn on. How do I fix it?"
