YOU have chosen to install the rom and If the modifications and the tweaks in the rom make your device run slower or your device gets bricked or your sdcard becomes dead or any unusual thing happens to your device then its because of your own fault, don't point fingers towards me or any other member of the forum for messing up your device.

Note: The ROM is no longer supported

FAQs

There are a few minor issues which some people face with this Rom. So here are the FAQs & their answers:

1. ROM randomly restarts/ Rom is stuck at boot screen: Use a lower frequency kernel if your phone does not boot with this ROM and gets stuck at the HTC logo or if restarts randomly. Start with 722 MHz Prometheus kernel and then increase your kernel version to 767MHz and 828 MHz. Rom runs pretty smooth at 722 MHz OC kernel and in fact this is the max. clock speed which i use in my desire C as well and it runs buttery smooth for normal use. DO NOT USE NOPE KERNEL WITH THIS ROM, it is only for CM10 based roms.
Download appropriate Prometheus kernel from here.
Note: Although you can also do a dirty flash but i would always recommend to do a clean flash while flashing ROM from both the recovery and the aroma installer as well. Clean flash means wiping your cache, dalvik-cache and data partitions.

2. Message app shows FC when you try to open message settings: It is an HTC bug more than anything else and not this ROM's bug.
Refer to this link to solve this issue.

3. Rom Restarts while using 3G/Wi-Fi: It happens sometimes because your cell radios and bootloader are of different version than what this Rom uses. Based on RUU 2.00.401.2 (HTC Europe), this Rom uses the following hboot and radio versions
hboot: 1.28.0000
radio: 1.06.98.13M2
You can verify your bootloader and radio versions by booting into the bootloader. To fix this issue you will have to flash HTC RUU_GOLF_U_ICS_40A_HTC_Europe_2.00.401.2 which will update your cell radios and bootloader so that they become compatible with this Rom.
Complete instructions to flash the RUU can be found on this thread.

Edit: you can install aluminum skin too in the aroma installer itself :)

I just installed this on my mom's Desire C, and it bootloops as soon as I get to the lockscreen. I'm using the lower clocked kernel. The odd part is that it does NOT boot loop if I remove the sim card. Any thoughts?

Strange I have never had this kind of problem.
Did u do a clean flash or dirty flash ...try to do clean flash in aroma installer along with cleaning cache, dalvik cache, and data partitions through recovery.
If this does not work provide me a logcat of the booting process.

Does NFC work in this Rom...I am not able to turn it on...

Sent from my HTC Desire C,

Yes I did include NFC in this rom but it will only work on NFC enabled handsets and not on non-NFC sets.
You can install NFC by checking the NFC option in aroma installer.
Personally I don't have NFC enabled phone so can not tell the procedure to turn it on.

HTC Desire C comes in two variants, one with NFC support and second without NFC support.
NFC in this Rom will only work for NFC supported desire C.
I think you have a desire C without NFC support that's why you can't turn it on.
