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.
