Hope this isn't a dumb question but does anyone know if this ROM is still being developed? I gave this ROM with my old phone to my girlfriend and she was wondering if there is a fix for the mic delay and/or the camera fps with recording? Other than that it's super stable and a great daily driver.

Last i heared was Sandvold needing some personal time. I hope he will be devving some more on this rom, as it has some other issues too. If you didnt deleted the play store, please do, as next time the phone shuts down, u wont get it running again and you will be forced to reflash. I temporarily switched to a 4.2.1 rom, but not happy with it. Hoping for an update from Sandvold!

No not yet. I just hope sandvold didnt leave us. There are a couple of quick fixes, read from about page 1660. Thats where ppl start to post the problem. Fixes will be there too. I just removed my play store to keep my phone working. But thats annoying too sometimes.

Has anyone found a good way to fix Google Play?

This one did the trick for me : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=34429350&postcount=16768
Use the quote source for the version without a2sd.

I also heard you can directly change the apk in the rom zip for an easy install but I didn't try.

Anyway now I got rid of boot loop and have a2sd and google play working.
My phone is still crashing randomly (full freeze, have to remove batteries), this phone is slowly starting to get on my nerves and my batteries are almost dead.
I'm probably gonna jump on the LG nexus 4, well assuming they restock it soon.

Well, i finally took the time to insert the hacked play store apk into the zip and installed from scratch. So far, this worked great! So if you are willing to wipe ur phone, try this!

I'm going to try this.

By the way, I tried to use a2sd to be able to install things and when rebooting (not the 1st time) I got stuck in a bootloop :(. Any idea on how I could fix this ? I can live with a phone randomly rebooting but a phone not booting isn't that useful ^^'.

y phone works without problems, but the store does not work, or crashes, or pulls up to 100% and the new begins. It is fairly annoying, but do not mind too much, but no supermarket = it's not android. How do I fix this?

I was going nuts with the bootloops. After lots of image backups/restores, I finally found that PlayStore was causing the boot loop, and then found here everyone else having the same problem. According to previous solutions, I could kill and delete the broken PlayStore, but had some problems to install the new PlayStore because of the packages.xml having previous signature.

This is what I came as my complete solution:

During the boot loop, I just send these commands from adb:

• adb remount
• adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.android.vending
• adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.android.vending.updater
• adb shell rm -r /sd-ext/app/Vending*.apk
• adb shell rm -r /sd-ext/app/MarketUpdater*.apk
• adb shell rm -r /system/app/com.android.vending*.apk
• adb shell rm -r /sd-ext/app/com.android.vending*.apk
• adb pull /data/system/packages.xml

In a few moments the bootloop will stop and boot will go on.

While boot goes on you can open the downloaded packages.xml in a text editor:
• Search for: name="com.android.vending"
• You'll find a "package" block, and an "updated-package" block.
• Remove both blocks (from the start up to the closing tag)

Now go on with putting back the packages.xml, putting new Play Store apk, clearing cache and rebooting:

• adb push packages.xml /data/system/packages.xml
• adb shell chmod 664 /data/system/packages.xml
• adb shell rm -r /system/app/Vending*.apk
• adb shell rm -r /system/app/MarketUpdater*.apk
• adb uninstall com.android.vending.updater (dont know if necessary)
• adb push "D:\path-to\Vending-3.8.15.noupdate.norestrictions.dpi240.apk" /system/app/Vending.apk
• adb shell chmod 644 /system/app/Vending.apk
• adb shell rm /data/dalvik-cache/*com.android.vending*
• adb shell rm /data/dalvik-cache/*MarketUpdater.apk*
• adb shell rm /data/dalvik-cache/*Vending.apk*
• Some people tell you to clear dalvik-cache... Dont think it's necessary... that would be adb shell rm /data/dalvik-cache/*
• adb reboot

Hope it works for everyone as it worked for me. :)

PS: Please note that as other have said, apks may be installed in different locations ...

Ive done this but when the play store starts downloading it crashes. Any idea what i could do?

edit: i was wrong. i used the edited version and these two steps caused the error:
• adb push "D:\path-to\Vending-3.8.15.noupdate.norestrictions.dpi240.apk" /sd-ext/app/com.android.vending-1.apk
• adb shell chmod 644 /sd-ext/app/com.android.vending-1.apk

use system remover to uninstall the play now.
it's no any other problem.

then you will find a app market to install of google play.
it's all.

I changed my phone and got the problem when I updated the old phone for my wife to use.

I may have lost the original rom zip file and when I tried to download it again I get a page that is not going to the download link (it's not what it was). Has the download site gone?

Also is there a solution that doesn't involve losing Google play?

Sorry that I've been totally inactive. Just needed to stop when I got a new job. Had no time, and it seemed the development of JB was going good, so didn't see much point in continuing the ICS work. But it's good to see that ppl are still enjoying it. If anyone want to use this as a base just do whateever you want:)

This was an epic rom sandvold, but the lack of a descent play store was really bringing it down. Anyhoo, it was time to move on. And nikez is a great developer too. I am currently on his 4.2.2 rom. But, knowing how u did a great job on ics, i will definitly switch to a jb rom from you. If you find the time to develop, ofcourse. Its good to have you back dude. And i am looking forward to see more work from you :)

    Trackball Alert Patch to custom colors using lihermits app
    v0.14     /28.06/
    Camcorder is working, native omx encoding is working.
    I've been lucky and can somehow play my recorded videos but reports say that it shouldn't do that.
    Issues: video is capped at 15fps so it is a little choppy, recorded video is rotated 90 degrees

    Fixed bad wifi from last release
    Added some stuff in build.prop (thx dk_zero, mms might work as in his ROM now)
    Removed both dhcpd choice from aroma
    *This release is mainly for testing out the linero toolchain, that's why it's missing some improvments. I need to know if I should continue on this or if I should go back to google before I use more time fixing camera and usb tether etc.
    v0.12     /11.06/
    Not many major changes for us:
    probably 200+ new commits here. Vast majority do not concern Desire. but thought it was worth mentioning
    bump IMM76L
    surfaceflinger hacks: make ui smoother (error in makefile prevented them from being turned on before) 
    Added Dk_zero's script to stop bsod while charging
    Also removed shaky's kernel as that causes the most problems.
    Camera seems broken (video only)/ Will try fix it asap
    v0.11     /03.06/
    lockscreen 'wave' animations will follow re the unlock around (not just go right)
    180 degree (upsidedown) rotation support
    kernel updated: kgslv3.8, tiny rcu optimizations, autogroup, bfqv3r2, smartassv2, armv7 changes from caf (only stock kernel)
    newer adreno libs: in combination with kernel updates should make ui noticeably smoother (same as for tiamat/shaky kernel)
    updated cli tools: htop v.9, busybox updated 1.20.1, a2sd cleanup: checkext should work better.
    Did fix some errors in updater script
    Hopefully fixed "patched" gmaps (give wrong msg in aroma tough, havn't tested it)
    Updated gapps
    Did a "fix" on shaky's kernel that MIGHT solve BSOD while charging, not during regular use!
    And quite a few things more that I forgot to write down before my PC crashed once again
    v0.10.1   /28.05/
    Fixed an error in build.prop that might have caused problems
    Fixed supercharger v6 so it works.
    This also stops reboot when installing apps
    Updated kernel, a test kernel based on tiamat. Seems BSOD free!
    v0.10      /26.05/
    Readded a choice for stable kernel (old hwa)
    Using the same adrenos as in 0.8 instead of 0.9, (increases bootime, but more stable)
    Freed more space for cm7r2 + data++ to ensure no space issues
    Gallery and panorama should now work for cm7r2
    Some minor fixing with scripts
    Slow wifi download is resolved for me at least
    Based on a newer evervolv build (thx shaky)
    Most of these changes isn't that effectful because camera didn't work out of the box so to get camera working then I had to "sacrifise" some of the new stuff. Nothing major and will give a detailed list later.
    In one of the 3 installs I did my market was borked. Rebooted each time I downloaded an app. This was fixed by reflashing (with wipe)
    **Seems it's supercharger that causes the problem, so avoid it this version
    v0.9        /22.05/
    Boot time improved
    Removed sullier script and battery mod for now (will return when kernel is stable)
    Also will delete those scripts at install
    Updated drewis kernel
    Updated shaky's kernel (Stock and strongly recommended)
    Tried once again to fix gallery + maps issue for cm7r2 and data++
    Some more things
    v0.8.1      /18.05/
    Two new kernels added one from shaky (stock)
    and one from Drewis. 
    They are based on different sources so havn't had time testing both properly but 
    KGSL: update from hacked 3.7 -> pure caf 3.8
    BFQ: update v2 -> v3r1 CPUFREQ: ondemand: updates from caf and shaky156 MISC: updates from caf (mainly to build new ksgl); 
    Added the newest adreno libs
    Added sulliers script which is a "New" cpu scaling
    Fixed some permissions
    Oh and added some theme changer (some evervolv thing) not very useful tbh
    Patch isn't a 100% full update but it's close so if you only want to patch 0.7 that's fine.
    [B]Patch + full ROM [/B]
    Camera is now fully working (all features, it's still possible with improvent)
    Youtube is also working as stock. To get stock videoplayback flash [url=http://w289670.open.ge.tt/1/files/8U5MlhH/0/blob?download]this[/url] (unstable) Use MxPlayer instead

    Updated toby_d's kernel
    Based on a newer build so a few more minor changes (wipe also recommended)
    browser features (incognito / max tabs)

    v.     /01.03/
    -sound/mic fixed from 4.2
    -boot issue fixed from 4.2
    -dhcp         fixed from 4.2
    Updated Amarullz a2sd
    + some other small things
    v0.4.2         /29.02/
    Phone should not lockup anymore when rotating display. Landscape mode is still strange, status bar is rendered halfway off screen...but only when rotating right...going left its fine
    Moved to cayniarbs stock(ish) kernel with my kgsl commits and ksm/zram backported from 3.0
    EVtoolbox: new menu 'performance' control zram(aka compcache) and ksm, both disabled by default. ksm will reduce memory overhead by 10-15mb with minimal cpu usage (0-1%). ive read that ksm likes to have swap (10% zram should be enough) but*youll have to experiment and see. also added 'processor' menu (also from cm) to view/control cpu stats.
    Apps2sd: support moving /data/data, (run 'a2sd install' again and choose y when asked about appdata) im still wary of how to handle wipes when appdata2sd is active. so ive added two functions to a2sd: 'nodatasd' which removes appdata2sd flag and optionally removes the appdata from sdcard and 'nosysdata' which removes only the system appdata (ie anything starting with com.android) from the sdcard
    Browser: i revised hwcomposer. redering is faster < 1 to 2 secs max under heavy scrolling

    statusbar: new toolbox, settings button back to opening settings (swipe to change screens). notifications back to stock behavior. toolbox can even be turned off in evtoolbox
    browser: slowed rendering, (fuzzy text takes a few seconds to clear up) is much faster now. (1-2 sec instead of 4-5)
    Added aGPS as a option instead
    Updated gapps.
    known issues:
    reboots under heavy load, it seems this is an out of memory error: ics seems to be a huge memory hog now that opengl is enabled. can be partially remedied by using a large swap partiton (i set mine at 256mb and haven't had a reboot since) or you can try setting 0 swap and see what happens. ive also changed a couple dalvik-heap properties but im still investigating work arounds and/or a fix.
    removed omx libs due to build error (just use the ones from p8 if you really want them)
    rotation still broke, seems to lockup the most on the home screen.
    and everything else that was broke in 0.4.0RC5
    v0.4.0RC5  /15.02/
    Fixed most of the coloring issues
    The modded mms.apk now work (choice in Aroma)
    Data ++ have their own optimized installation
    v0.4.0RC3  /14.02/
    Small fixes:
    Small change build.prop
    Changed some dhcpd stuff (no major changes)
    Fixed so you can manually search for provider.
    added aGPS fix, report if this makes gps worse.
    Added back the setup wizard at first boot.
    The big changes is that we included a touch based installer which gives you possibility to customize the ROM. [B]Don't request things to be added in this forum.[/B] If you want make a post in desire general and I'll drop by from time to time. If there is a lot of nagging I'll just remove the whole thing.
    What you can do:
    It automatically finds your hboot and sorts the ROM accordingly.
    Choose launcher (stock, nova, apex and trebuchet)
    Choose a2sd scripts (stock, amarullz, regular a2sd, dalvik2sd)
    Choose if you want softkeys
    Choose if you want mms.apk that doesn't convert more then 3 sms to mms.
    There is of course a typical installation, that keeps everything as the stock ROM is.

    Contact the CEO of qualcomm

    Hi it looks like HW acc wil be hard to fix without the source/or help from qualcomm.
    We've already started a thread on dev.qualcomm.com plz post there as well.

    I doubt that will make any difference but everything should be tried.

    I now propose that we all send a mail to the CEO of Qualcomm. I'm gonna copy the first post in the thread (it's very well written), which either can be copied as it is. Or you can write your own personal email (might be a good idea cause he'll probably mark the subject as spam after a bunch of requests)

    Email address of the ceo [email protected]

    Subject: QSD 8250, Adreno 200 hardware-related proprietary libraries for hardware graphics acceleration

    As a mobile devices enthusiast, I am here to ask Qualcomm to be a real community oriented company.

    You are well aware of hardware accelerated UI in the Android 4.0 ICS, that relies heavily on GPU of device. Google, with its AOSP has decided not support Nexus One and related devices. As a user community, we have long stopped relying on HTC and Google to support the devices - this is now a community effort, that brings joy to millions, and is a true development pass time for many.

    Since the ICS source outing, many community projects have been started to bring the new platform to older devices, but all of them (for devices based on this and similiar platforms) are missing the proprietary user space drivers, needed for the Hardware Acceleration to work.

    I believe it would be a great move for a company like Qualcomm to support advanced users and entusiast in their efforts to port the ICS to Adreno 200 based devices.

    I sincerely hope you will at least consider this request and decide to support the community - the same community that with their enthusiasm helped to make the smartphone market what it is today.

    Take into account that we do not ask for much, it just a set of compiled binaries that you surelly have already, or are easy for you to make. We do not expect you to support the release, or do bugfixes. It would be even better if you could supply the source code - but lets not push it too far :)

    Best Regards
    Btw will not even start to waste time on porting jb.

    But when the source is out the work begins;)

    Sent from my HTC Desire using XDA
    First of all, sorry for not updating for a long time. I've pretty much just been taking a holiday, just needed to put deving on hold for a while. Plus I've been working some on JB.

    I'm still going to update ICS, at least until JB is better working and releases should be much more frequent then it was in July.

    Anyway, now I'm back. New release is up.
    Mainly it's a lot of stability fixes.

    And please click a link when visiting the blog/site even though I havn't updated in far to long!
    One more thing. If it's a big demand for nightlys this isn't a problem, but don't expect any major fixes. If there is a major fix we'll release a new build anyway. We usually get at least one or two small fixes each day, but they are not "big" enough for justifying a new build (and excite a lot of guys).

    I got the fixes anyway so it's not a big deal or a lot of work to release possible nightlys, only time it takes is to update the updater-script + uploading. Making just update.zip is alot more work, so cba doing that.

    If this is really wanted then just thank me on this post and I'll see if the interest is big enough.
