First time flashing to ICS? see THIS post:

Installation Instructions:
You must be running a kernel with CWM.
1) Place the VeNuM ICE RC6.0zip on your SD card.
2) Power off your phone.
3) Boot into CWM.
4) Perform a wipe Cache, and Dalvik-cache. Now in Mounts and Storage perform format/system. Now wipe data (factory reset). You can also perform Calks wipe all zip (found here: if you want but not needed.
5) Select "install zip from file" and navigate to and select the zip.
6) When it finishes flashing, go back and select "reboot system now". The first boot will take a couple minutes. Subsequent boots will be much faster.
Warning: Do NOT restore system data with Titanium Backup. Do NOT restore ALL apps with data. If you absolutely must restore something with Titanium Backup, only restore MISSING apps with data.
7. If you DID NOT download the rom to your pc, and dl to your phone and there's a problem, try dl to your pc FIRST before you whine that its a bad dl.

All Ice rom discussion go here:

5.5 is johncorleone's first build... go HERE to thank him PLEASE!...

Older Downloads post 2

Ok, here is Venum Ice FF18

the thanks:

DataJosh for the base

Agat for the kernel/recovery

Rujelus for most of the goodies added in

Venum, Dazed, and all of the team that helped make this ROM as stable, fast, and battery friendly as has been reported by all of you!!

New Stuff:

some app updates, themed icons, a few more inverted apps, a bit of bloat removed but also a few more surprises!!!

Known issues:

In Contacts if you use search there is black on black in text box only. If you want to change from the keyboard I made default, just go into settings/language and input and the black Android keyboard is in there as well. All of the battery mod zips from last version still work as do the other mods. I will post those again tomorrow. All of the precautionary ICS flashing rules are in place until possible bricks are 100% gone. Let me know what you think....

FF18 Ice

Well I rushed and forgot the great inverted Google+. Here it is. I put it in system/app, fix permissions and reboot. Should work just fine on a straighr install as well. Sorry bout that...

Same ICS flashing rules apply. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE. How you choose to flash is up to you BUT avoid wiping data partition individually in ICS recovery

Please post feedback and suggestions for future updates. Also, if you have any interesting app ideas, PM me (johncorleone) about them. Enjoy!!


"You know the deal, if you are illiterate and can't read, therefore you brick the $500 dollar phone you have... well, that's YOUR fault"

Looking forward to seeing this once you deem it ready. I think you have to have something posted pretty quickly though.
