The Incredible S is still alive, even if it's legacy!

So, let's see, what everyone wants to know:


What's working:
- Boots
- WiFi
- Camera
- Camcorder
- Video playback
- SD
- Bluetooth
- Audio
- Native WiFi/BT/USB Tether
- Hardware Accelaration
- Microphone
- Native screenshot
- Torch (screen-off also)
- Button Rotation
- SELinux
- Built-in Superuser
- ART (Android RunTime)


- Major:
- Nothing, hopefully
- Minor:
- Nothing, hopefully

List all Questions and Off-Topic discussions here


Some general truths:
- Using ION, the up-to-date memory allocator
- No graphical glitches
- Using the latest available Adreno libraries (AU_LINUX_ANDROID_JB_VANILLA_04.
- Latest (3.14) KGSL drivers in the kernel
- The best graphic performance because of the latest Adreno drivers
- Using the latest RIL libraries (2.2.0018G)


About the system, and the kernel:
- KTU84Q, Kitkat 4.4.4, built from CM11 souces after the 10.27'th repo sync
- Uses my kernel, an ION enabled one, named TESCO-Minimal kernel, properties:
- Patched up to 3.0.101
- 615MB of accessible RAM
- ck1 patchset
- Bluetooth Low Power Mode
- OC and UC to 122Mhz - 2016Mhz
- 245Mhz - 1024Mhz, ondemand governor as default
- SmartAssV2, Lionheart, Smartmax, SmartAssH3, Powersave governors
- KGSL drivers from CAF ics_strawberry

How to install this:
- You have to S-OFFed, of course
- Just download the ROM, wipe data, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache, wipe boot
- Install the ROM, and if it's done, install the Gapps
- If your phone unlocked by, you may have to flash the boot.img manually:

fastboot flash boot boot.img

Download section:


And a proper GApps, you need to flash this too:

[Q] I've flashed the ROM, but it stops at the splash screen, what's the problem?
Flash the ROM with TWRP or the latest 4ext Touch Recovery.

[Q] The 720p Video Playback is laggy, why?
I haven't found a solution, yet, we really need newer video drivers, to fix these bugs, and not just make workarounds.
It got solved in #08.31 version.

[Q] When I'm playing a video, the control buttons are invisible, why?
Actually, this is a problem with my display-legacy, but we have to use that, because of the old msm_fb, what the Vivo has. Live with it.

[Q] I've just installed this ROM, but the WiFi doesn't work, why?
Probably, you've unlocked your Bootloader with hTCDEV's method. That means, you have to flash your boot.img with fastboot, to get it working (guide is in the first post).

Actually, this ROM isn't good as a daily driver, at the moment, it's only for a test, but with time, every bug will be sorted out. I already fixed the SD card and the WiFi bug...

You are THE ONE man! Awesome!
