****im not responsible for anything that happens to your phone***

Ok, here is a leaked (read not the ota) ics sense 3.6 rom for the verizon htc inc2


General Info:
  • Android 4.0.4
  • Sense 3.6
  • Kernel 3.0.16 (insecure boot)
  • 7.01.605.01 test-keys
  • deodexed (userdebug)
  • build date: mid July

its basically stock as it came from the RUU except:
  • rooted
  • busybox
  • kernel repacked for ext4 vs ext3
  • kernel repacked to remove new htc /lib partition for use on all hboots
  • remove htc linkify crap (app associations as a result of apple lawsuit)
  • removed a lot of the htc log/testing utilities that are present (theyre neat to play with sorta, but the avg user would get annoyed by their notificaitons always being on)
  • moved some stuff to /data because older hboots dont support /lib and /lib needs to be back in /system/ (which didnt have the room for it all)

  • chainsdd for superuser
  • anonymous friends who supply us with files

Downloads:

rom: http://d-h.st/KGo
mirror: http://www.androidfilehost.com/main/....01_ics_R1.zip
md5sum: ee5c6f84318363cc274c787141ddd14e

ics firmware: http://d-h.st/ZVq
mirror: http://www.androidfilehost.com/main/...fw_PG32IMG.zip
md5sum: 81171966d46efcc62b6c8f28918b0b31
(includes newer radio)

i recommend making a backup first obviously...you may get away without using the firmware update (which includes a newer radio) but i cant guarantee it ll boot and/or other stuff working right

***dont ask for the RUU currently, thanks***

To Install:
(for s-off users)
  • Download rom and firmware
  • if installing firmware rename to PG32IMG.zip and put on the root of sdcard (rom too)
  • boot to recovery, make a nandroid, wipe data, and flash rom ***if flashing firmware do not reboot yet!)
  • if flashing firmware, either "adb reboot bootloader" or select the option through recovery (depends on what recovery you use)
  • flash firmware through hboot
  • reboot

for dev unlock users you need to pull the boot.img from the rom.zip and flash that through fastboot as well!
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img

FAQ

Q: Is this the fabled ICS OTA?
A: No, not even close. Its a userdebug rom (read not tester, but internal developer test build) from July.

Q: Does this mean an ota is close?
A: Doesn't mean much honestly. The tbolts debug test build is from April and they don't have an ota yet HTC had previously said release by end of August, but who knows.

Q: Is this rom bugfree?
A: I'm sure its not. Apparently wifi and data need to be toggled off when using the other.

Q: Would you recommend this over "insert rom"?
A: Nope...mostly cuz a) its a test rom and b) I haven't used any rom on my inc2 that wasn't ukb or miui since last year to compare.

Q: Can I use mods for other sense 3.6 mods/tweaks/patches with this?
A: Maybe, but since they are essentially replacing apks/jars from this rom when flashed it can cause issues/bootloops.

Q: Are you going to make mods for this then?
A: Don't plan to, when the ota is out I probably will then.

Q: Can I use this to make my own rom?
A: Of course, go right ahead.

Q: Wait the secret LTE radio in my phone in enabled when switching in network mode!!?!?!?
A: Yup, expect 2 TB down and 123 TB up!!!

Q: Can you release the RUU?
A: No plans to currently.

flash firmware through hboot and rom through recovery (wipe data is necessary imo)


Please elaborate. We rename firmware to PG32IMG place it on root of sd AND place the same file in the rom as well??

Update the firmware like you are trying to flash any PG32IMG then just flash the ROM like any other ROM

It takes awhile to start up so just be patience and it will go through.
