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