We are proud to announce the release of our RTS rom. Based on SAGA_ICS_35_S_HTC_Europe_14.01.401.2 rom for HTC Desire S, but with many improvements, and removals of bloatware.We may be new to the community, but we have the will to improve ourselves and the rom, for your enjoyment. Of course it would be good for us to have your feedback and bug report. Our target is to develop a elegant and stable rom to make Desire S a great companion everywhere you go.

Rom recquirements
!!Update!!
This is the first hybrid custom-stock rom. There are three options in aroma regarding HBOOT(ics stock hboot, custom hboots and older 6.98.xx hboots). So for the later hboots there is the option of sticking to the "stock mode", or to the "custom" one. Choose wisely.
This ROM is tested and working on HBOOT 7.00.1002, but scripts are written to fully support the 2.0x.xx HBOOTs (2.00.2002 2.00.0002 2.02.002) and 6.98.xxx hboot.


Installation Procedure
-I. Boot to bootloader (power-off, hold volume-down and power buttons for a few seconds) and write down your hboot
I. Download ROM and save it in sd-card
II. Enter recovery and perform factory reset(recommended), wipe both cash and dalvik cash
III. Install rom (wait 1 or 2 minutes)
IV. Reboot your phone and wait for another 2 or 3 minutes
V. Welcome to RTS 1.2.5 world

Before downloading and flashing(you will see that and in the installation process too) remember that, you try this at your own risk! I don't think that there will be any problem, but I have to remind you just in case.

DOWNLOAD
RTS 1.2.5
md5sum:b68250204fcb9a894340120fe314340c

Earlier versions
RTS 1.2.4

This is the the most elegant rom, with many customizations in the installation process. ENJOY!!!

FAQs
I. After flashing the rom and reboot the phone, it stuck in the initial screen (HTC), Bricked phone?
No, probably your phone is S-ON and had previously a custom rom and a different boot.img. So, after flashing the rom from recovery, reboot to bootloader, connect the phone with the pc, put the boot.img from the zip to the same directory of fastboot, start cmd and type "fastboot flash boot boot.img" then reboot.
  • if in aroma you have chosen ICS stock firmware (2.02.0002) or custom firmware (7.00.1002 or 2.00.2002 or 2.00.002), and the b2b kernel, then you have to flash boot.img that is @/extra/kernel/b2b/
  • if in aroma you have chosen ICS stock firmware (2.02.0002) or custom firmware (7.00.1002 or 2.00.2002 or 2.00.002), and the patched kernel, then you have to flash boot.img that is @/extra/kernel/patched/
  • if in aroma you have chosen the older custom firmware(6.98x,etc), and the b2b kernel, then you have to flash boot.img that is @/extra/kernel/olderhboot/b2b/
  • if in aroma you have chosen the older custom firmware(6.98x,etc), and the patched kernel, then you have to flash boot.img that is @/extra/kernel/olderhboot/patched/

II. When i open an application that needs root permission it tell me that, root permission not granted. What happened?
Open SuperSU, it needs su update, press yes to that, and it's done.

Nice to see someone new taking up the development on our device and I'll be interested in seeing where you go with it.

It might be nice to include some more details though - what have you removed from the Stock ROM for a start. Screenshots would be good, even if they are almost identical to the original. Basically, tell us all about it please.

I was planning to make a post in the next few minutes. We start by removing applications from system/app that they are almost useless, like dock mode, printer, ect. and add to data/app all the must applicatons(their latest version) like facebook, tweeter, google apps, opera browser, backup, teamviewer, ect. the target is the creation of a rom that is ready to play, without extra downloading from the user.

The first rom.zip that we created was at a size of 460MB and was above the limit of 400mb of hotfile, so we had to take out some apps. We searching for a upload-site with higher size limit, in order to upload the full release of rom.zip.

I can assure you that it's working with 2.000... HBOOT type. We have two phones available to test our work, so it's not so easy to test all HBOOTs. It needs lots of hours per day and as for now we do not have them. We have our jobs already to attend. But if someone is willing to test it and share the results is welcome to do so.
