I ported an unofficial build of CM7 over to the Rezound from the Sensation. I’m not sure why, but the ROM will not boot past the splash screen, so I am going to turn this into a community WIP.

ROM Progress Synopsis :
- Rom was ported over from the HTC Sensation
- A custom kernel was compiled from CM7 source

Working:
Unknown

Not Working
Unknown

Here is what I have done so far.
Since our device isn’t officially supported by CM7, this ROM was ported from a CM7.a3 rom from the Evo3D. Porting from the Evo shouldn’t be a problem since the devices are very similar, both having the msm8660 chipset.
The base ROM that was used was a stock vigor OTA.
Files that were injected in to the base ROM from the CM7 ROM:
- /system/app folder minus phone and Bluetooth
- /system/framework
- /system/fonts and /system/media
- necessary /system/lib files including libandroid_runtime.so
- init.d
- necessary permissions
- altered build.prop
- custom update script


How to install:

NOTE: THIS ROM CURRENTLY DOESN'T BOOT. This is currently a WORK IN PROGRESS and no promises are made that a fully functional ROM will be produced from these efforts. The purpose of this thread is to collaborate all of our CM7 efforts into one thread. DON'T GET YOUR HOPES UP.

As of now, this ROM is GB only. Here is an excellent thread explaining GB/ICS firmware combos: clicky Thanks superchilpil

This is a COMMUNITY PROJECT. I want help working on this so we can get this stable as fast as possible. If you are able to help with this project, don’t be afraid to contact me on this thread, PM me, or tweet me Quada03.

Changelog

20120716 - Rebased of off HTC Pyramid (Sensation) which is slightly closer to our device (no 3D screen)

20120715– initial port from Evo 3D


To do list

Replace libaudio.so in system files

Try to find someone who still has the CM7 tree/repo from GB Pyramid. This way we can build straight from source.

ROM Progress:

As of right now, the ROM will not boot past the splash screen. I did a logcat and there are no fatal errors but an audio driver seems to be in a constant loop. I’ll see if I can post a pastebin later today.

This would be awesome but again, there is no working RIL for any aosp variation. That will be your biggest hurdle.....
