How to flash the ICS 3.33 firmware

Readme first
  1. There is no need to flash the radio. It is already included in the firmware package. (radio included: 11.76A.3504.00P_11.24A.3504.31_M)
  2. Check MD5 Checksum of every file before flashing it. MD5 Checker tool: Download the file, unzip it and follow the instructions
  3. CAUTION: This procedure can brick your phone. Please make sure you've read, understood everything and know how to do it before you continue.
  4. Please make sure your battery is fully charged before start flashing.
  5. As a precautionary measure, remove the sim card from the phone and keep it out during the whole process.

Step 1. Flashing 4EXT recovery touch

During the installation of ARHD ROM you will be asked if you want to add/flash certain features ( i.e: stock or custom kernel, TMOUS 4g support, sony bravia engine, among other things). To make those choices you need to flash 4ext recovery touch before the ROM, if you decide to flash the ROM with CMW recovery this options will not appear. 4ext recovery touch is included in ARHD by default, any other recovery will be overwriten after the installation.

If you've decided not to flash ARHD and/or the ROM you've chosen do not require you to have 4EXT recovery touch installed, you can skip this section.

To dowload and install the newest version of 4ext recovery TOUCH (v1.0.0.5 RC5). (thanks to madmaxx82) use one of the following methods provided:
  • First method: Your phone MUST be rooted in order to install the 4ext recovery touch. Follow the Installation guide (thanks to LarsChristian).
  • Second method: This method is only for windows users. Download the user-friendly 4EXT Recovery touch flashing tool. Check the MD5 of the zip, extract the downloaded file and read the guide inside.
    Is highly recommended to install the 4EXT Recovery Updater or 4EXT Recovery Control to keep up with the latest updates and news. Go to 4EXT thread or www.4ext.net.
  • Third method: Download this file, check the MD5 of the zip and install it following the steps 4 and 5 from post#1 in this thread.

    If you get the "CID error" you'll need to know what your CID is and manually add it to the android-info.txt file contained in the .zip, or you can do SuperCID following Step4 in this guide and repeat the process afterwards.
    NOTE: File used in third method WILL NOT install the needed 3.33 firmware in any way, only contains the recovery.img to flash 4ext recovery touch.

Step 2. Backup your current ROM/Apps/Data
  1. Make a NANDROID backup of your current ROM.
    • Go to settings>power and untick fast boot
    • Power off phone
    • Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
    • Select recovery
    • Wait for 4EXT recovery touch to boot
    • Go to: backup|restore>Backup>Yes
    • Wait until backup is finished
    • Reboot phone
  2. Make a backup of your apps (with titanium backup or you preferred app). This is optional
  3. Make a backup of your SMS, contacts and important data. After superwiping and flashing the ROM all of them will be gone.This is optional
    You can use either the HTC sense buit-in backup option or one of this free apps:

Step 3. Downloading the firmware package

Download the latest 3.33 universal firmware package (PG58IMG.zip) from here.

Step 4. Updating the firmware

This step is MANDATORY otherwise you ROM will not boot. Please take a look at the firmware thread so you can understand what you are about to do.
After updating the firmware you will have the 3.33 firmware with unlocked bootloader (revolutionary hboot 1.27). Which basically means that you can use advanced fastboot commands, such as: flash new radios and splashscreens
  1. Copy the PG58IMG.zip file you've downloaded to the root of the sdcard. Root of the sd card mean that you can't put the file inside any folder. Also, you can't rename the file. Please keep the PG58IMG otherwise the bootloader won't recognize it.
  2. Power off your phone or remove the batt and put it back again.
  3. Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
  4. Wait for the firmware package to be found and confirm to update as prompted
  5. Once it completed successfully and prompted you to reboot, pull the battery out.

Step 5. Removing the PG58IMG.zip file from the sd card

Now that you have updated the firmware succesfully, it is necessary to delete the PG58IMG.zip file from the sd card to gain access to the bootloader without being asked if you want to update the firmware. To do so, we have two options:

Option#1. If you can have access to the sd card from a computer:
  1. Remove the sdcard from your phone,attach it to your computer and delete the PG58IMG.zip from the sdcard.
  2. Remove the sdcard from your computer and return it to your phone.
  3. Hold volume-down + power to boot into bootloader.
  4. Wait 10 seconds until the bootloader is fully loaded
  5. Now your bootloader screen should read:
    -Revolutionary-
    PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
    HBOOT-1.27.1100
    RADIO-11.24A.3504.31_M
  6. Navigate with the volume button and select recovery with the power button
  7. Wait for the recovery to boot
  8. You are good to go, now you can flash the ROM. Please follow post#2 in this thread.
Option#2. If you can't have access to the sd card from a computer:
  1. Remove the sd card from the phone
  2. Hold volume-down + power to boot into bootloader.
  3. Wait 10 seconds until the bootloader is fully loaded
  4. Now your bootloader screen should read:
    -Revolutionary-
    PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
    HBOOT-1.27.1100
    RADIO-11.24A.3504.31_M
  5. Insert the sd card now
  6. Navigate with the volume button and select recovery with the power button
  7. Wait for the recovery to boot
  8. You are good to go, now you can flash the ROM. Please follow post#2 in this thread.
  9. Delete the PM58IMG.zip file from your sd card using your preferred file manager as soon as your phone has booted succesfully. You won't be able to boot into recovery normally until you delete this file. As a workaround use this method to enter into recovery mode.


A very special thanks to all members who have contacted me with positive messages, kind words and those who asked for a way to buy me a beer. Many thanks for your appreciation and support guys.

[APR.16.12] How to flash/update Android Revolution HD Ice Cream Sandwich ROM

The content in this guide will help you to flash/update the latest version of Android Revolution HD (ARHD) Ice Cream Sandwich ROM.
  • Android Revolution HD is a custom ROM based on latest official HTC 3.33.401.x update. It is mandatory to have (at least) the 3.32 firmware (3.33 recommended) flashed on your phone or else it will not boot.
  • Please check your current ROM base number under: Settings>About Phone>Software Information>More>Build Number. If the first digits of this number are 3.32 or 3.33 then you have the proper firmware flashed and you can continue following this guide. Otherwise you need to update the firmware first, to do so, please follow post#1 in this thread. This is a general guide and can be applied to flash any ICS 3.33-based rom afterwards.
  • Android Revolution HD can be flashed in HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation 4G & HTC Sensation XE
  • You can flash either non-xe (without beats audio) or xe (with beats audio) version. Yes, the only difference is beats audio.
About S-ON / S-OFF and Hboot version​
Please follow the instructions according to your Bootloader status (S-ON / S-OFF) and Hboot version
The following information has been gathered and compiled from many posts and threads.

How to flash/update Android Revolution HD v.6.7.x / 1.2.x
Ice Cream Sandwich ROM

Readme first
  1. You need the latest 3.33 firmware installed in your phone before flashing the ROM, please follow post#1 in this thread. This is a general guide and can be applied to flash any ICS 3.33-based rom afterwards.
  2. There is no need to flash the ARHD recommended radio. It is already included in the firmware package. (radio included: 11.76A.3504.00P_11.24A.3504.31_M)

  5. Please make sure your battery is fully charged before start flashing.
  6. As a precautionary measure, remove the sim card from the phone and keep it out during the whole process.

If you've followed the post#1 in this thread you already have 4EXT recovery touch installed and your data is backed up, please jump to the step3.

If you have a previous version of ARHD installed (>6.4.0) you don't need to flash again the 4EXT Recovery touch, make sure you have the latest 3.33 firmware then jump to the step2.


Step 1. Flashing 4EXT recovery touch

During the installation of ARHD ROM you will be asked if you want to add/flash certain features ( i.e: stock or custom kernel, TMOUS 4g support, sony bravia engine, among other things). To make those choices you need to flash 4ext recovery touch before the ROM, if you decide to flash the ROM with CMW recovery this options will not appear. 4ext recovery touch is included in ARHD by default, any other recovery will be overwriten after the installation.

If you've decided not to flash ARHD and/or the ROM you've chosen do not require you to have 4EXT recovery touch installed, you can skip this section.

To dowload and install the newest version of 4ext recovery TOUCH (v1.0.0.5 RC5). (thanks to madmaxx82) use one of the following methods provided:
  • First method: Your phone MUST be rooted in order to install the 4ext recovery touch. Follow the Installation guide (thanks to LarsChristian).
  • Second method: This method is only for windows users. Download the user-friendly 4EXT Recovery touch flashing tool. Check the MD5 of the zip, extract the downloaded file and read the guide inside.
    Is highly recommended to install the 4EXT Recovery Updater or 4EXT Recovery Control to keep up with the latest updates and news. Go to 4EXT thread or www.4ext.net.
  • Third method: Download this file, check the MD5 of the zip and install it following the steps 4 and 5 from post#1 in this thread.

    If you get the "CID error" you'll need to know what your CID is and manually add it to the android-info.txt file contained in the .zip, or you can do SuperCID following Step4 in this guide and repeat the process afterwards.
    NOTE: File used in third method WILL NOT install the needed 3.33 firmware in any way, only contains the recovery.img to flash 4ext recovery touch.

Step 2. Backup your current ROM/Apps/Data
  1. Make a NANDROID backup of your current ROM.
    • Go to settings>power and untick fast boot
    • Power off phone
    • Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
    • Select recovery
    • Wait for 4EXT recovery touch to boot
    • Go to: backup|restore>Backup>Yes
    • Wait until backup is finished
    • Reboot phone
  2. Make a backup of your apps (with titanium backup or you preferred app). This is optional
  3. Make a backup of your SMS, contacts and important data. After superwiping and flashing the ROM all of them will be gone.This is optional
    You can use either the HTC sense buit-in backup option or one of this free apps:

Step 3. Downloading the installation files
  1. Download the Sensation superwipe script (is the same for Sensation /XE/4G users) from the ARHD OP(Thanks to mike1986.). WARNING: Use only the superwipe script for the HTC Sensation. Using a different one can brick your phone.
  2. Download the ROM from the ARHD OP (Thanks to mike1986.). You can flash either non-xe (without beats audio) or xe (with beats audio) version. Yes, the only difference is beats audio.
    • 6.6.x XE = With beats audio
    • 6.6.x = Without beats audio
    • 1.2.x = Recommended for TMOUS users. Based on the latest official HTC 3.32.531.14 (U.S. T-Mobile) firmware. Without beats audio
  3. Copy the super wipe and ROM zip files to the sdcard

Step 4. Flashing/updating the ROM
Note to ARHD updaters!
  • If you are coming from ARHD 6.7.x version there is no need to superwipe. Flashing the ROM without superwipe will not modify or delete your data/settings/apps/desktop layout. However, the mods you've installed will be gone and you will need to flash them again. I'd recommend to check if the mods are available/compatible with the updated ROM you are flashing to avoid future issues.
  • If you are coming from a previous 3.32-based ARHD ROM (>6.4.0) superwipe is required highly recommended!. There have been some changes and updates in the ROM since then and the best advice is to do a clean install. Please consider a superwipe to avoid issues and get the better ARHD experience.
  • If you are moving from/to the XE ROM version, superwipe isn't required but recommended. If you decide not to superwipe and you are having issues or strange behaviour please consider a superwipe to avoid issues and get the better ARHD experience.
  1. Power off phone
  2. Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
  3. Select recovery
  4. Wait for 4EXT recovery touch to boot
  5. Select install from sd card
  6. Install the superwipe script. This will wipe ALL your data and reboot the phone into recovery again when completed.
  7. Select install from sd card again
  8. This time flash the ROM and follow the on-screen instructions
  9. During the installation you will be asked the following questions:
    • Is your device HTC Sensation 4G?. This will add wifi calling option. ONLY FOR TMOUS USERS
    • Adding sony bravia engine support?. Check out this video. Most of users haven't noticed any difference with or without the bravia engine patch. So you make your choice.
    • Flashing boot.img.
      Step 1: Select between stock kernel and custom kernel. If you have a Sensation XE and you install stock kernel your phone will run @1.5GHz because that's the stock cpu speed. If you don't have a Sensation XE your phone will run @1.2GHz.
      Step 2: Select between SebastianFM kernel and faux123 kernel. If you want to have an idea of the difference between both go to this useful post. (Thanks to PaulGiz)
  10. When the ROM is fully flashed select back
  11. Select reboot from 4ext recovery
  12. Done, enjoy ICS :D, the first boot should take around 5-10 mins

Step 5. After flashing
  1. Before restoring or installing any app go to settings>Security>Tick unknow sources. This will allow the installation of non-Market apps.
  2. If you are going to restore any of your apps make sure you don't restore system apps or data. Just restore user apps and their data. Please read this post for a short explanation of why you shouldn't backup/restore system data.
  3. Restore your SMS backup. You must've done a backup before flashing the ROM.
    You can use either the HTC sense built-in tool or one of this free apps:
  4. There is no need to flash the recommended radio, remember? you already have it.
  5. If you want to change the radio please visit Sensation RIL and RADIO thread and follow the instructions. (Thanks to mf2112)
  6. TMOUS Users, there is something you can do to possibly improve your data speeds and connectivity. For further information please visit Sensation RIL and RADIO thread and follow the instructions. (Thanks to mf2112)
  7. Don't forget to visit Hawke84's thread ICS Problem Fixes / Mods. (Thanks to Hawke84)
  8. Please read and use the search button before posting, maybe that rare and unknown issue you are having it's already fixed or has been discussed already.
  9. If I've helped you with this guide don't forget to press the THANKS button and rate the thread :D 5 stars if possible. Thanks

Do you want to go back to Gingerbread?

If you want to flash a stock ROM and/or you are changing back to S-ON using a RUU and it comes up with an error please follow the second method posted here. You can also reboot your phone manually into bootloader and then run the RUU.
To change back to S-ON please follow the STEP 5 in this guide

If you want to flash a custom Gingerbread ROM please follow this steps:
  1. You need to flash the proper GB firmware with Hboot 1.17.
  2. Go HERE And download the 1.17 universal Firmware. This file is the original Revolutionary 1.17.1111 Firmware with a completed Gingerbread Firmware v 1.45 package (It does contain the Radio 10.14.9035.01_M). (Thanks to Kohr-Ah for the User-Friendly Firmware)
  3. Follow the same steps you've followed to upgrade the firmware, but this time with the Hboot 1.17 PG58IMG.zip file.
  4. Flash superwipe script for sensation
  5. Flash Gingerbread ROM
  6. Or you can just restore your Gingerbread NANDROID backup, if you have one, AFTER downgrading the firmware and flashing the radio.
  7. Go to Radio/RIL thread and follow the instructions to check if you have the matching RIL (HTC-RIL 2.2.0169HMQ) for the 10.56.9035.00U_10.14.9035.01 radio contained in the 1.17 firmware package. (thanks to mf2112)

Thank you very much for the guide.
If you would be wrote the guide ~ 6 weeks ago, Sensation Android Revolution HD forum would have had 500 pages less...

Had to move this to general, as it is not development nor a general guide, of which there is a number in development forum already.
Best is to tell arhd dev to include it in his thread.
Cheers

Thanks for the extremely useful guide joaquinf - just one thing, you might want to change the date in the original posts' subject line as it states [Jan.30.11] instead of [Jan.30.12] ;)

First of all: Great thread!
To my opinion it would be wise to add "SMS Backup & Restore" (free app; I use the one from Ritesh Sahu) to the "before you flash section".
My experience is that all SMS is gone after flashing.

SMS backup + is a really good app too, backs up messages to google account.

the built in sms backup tool isnt very good. every time u back up it adds loads of '''''''''''''' to messages, mine are getting quite long now! :p

the built in sms backup tool isnt very good. every time u back up it adds loads of '''''''''''''' to messages, mine are getting quite long now! :p

Let's keep it simple and just state that it could be wise to use an SMS backup tool?
Tried SMS Backup + and it looks nice. Backup goed pretty fast. Next ROM flash I'll give it a try to see how it restores.

First of all: Great thread!
To my opinion it would be wise to add "SMS Backup & Restore" (free app; I use the one from Ritesh Sahu) to the "before you flash section".
My experience is that all SMS is gone after flashing.

Thanks for the suggestion guys. I'll add it right now.

Hello after successfully installed 6.2.1_XE.zip
(answering No to TMOUS, Yes to Sony Bravia and No to XE) each time i try to reboot i goes back to 4EXT Recovery Touch and does not boot the ROM itself (USB cable is plugged). If i unplug the cable it goes to Beats Audio logo and remains stuck here (more than 10 min)
i did the operation with battery at 20% only
What should i do/check ?

PS: here are my firmware info:
HBOOT-1.27.1100
RADIO-10.14.9035.02_2
and not
RADIO-11.21.35.04.13_2. Is this normal ?

Try superwiping and re-flash the rom. If this happen again try re-downloading the files and check md5checksum you might have a bad download.

As far as the HBOOT is 1.27.1100 you have the right firmware. The radio info isn't accurate in the bootloader

Are you coming from a stock rom? are you sure that your phone is s-off'ed? not just htcdev unlocked only. Did you follow every single step of the guide? did you downloaded the files from the link i've provided?

If you are S-OFF'ed update to the latest 4ext recovery touch rc3 version downloading the file here copy it to your sd card and flash it manually via recovery.

If you are not. BE CAREFUL. you are neither reading the guide thoroughly nor following the steps and you can brick your device. One of the main requirements is to be S-OFF'ed

SMS backup + is a really good app too, backs up messages to google account.

As I said Hawke: Tried it. At first I thought: "Hmm nice stuff". Till I opened my Outlook on the pc and saw all my SMS's in the inbox of my GMail account :D
The app I use simply stores the backup on the SD card.

If you also use your GMail account for personal e-mails, I'd not recommend your option ;)
============================
Edit: joaquinf, maybe you can add the option of using a SebastianFM kernel after flashing ICS ROM?

I am S-Off coming from ROM 3.6.13. but now i'm at least trying to get back to it (flashing back to firmware 1.17 and restoring a NAND backup)

[Edit] You need to flash back the firmware 1.17 if you are not supercid'ed from 'User-Friendly Firmware 1.17/3.12/3.24 Unlocked(No need to SuperCID)'

Restoring the NAND Backup was a success

    Please follow the instructions according to your Bootloader status (S-ON / S-OFF) and Hboot version
    The following information has been gathered and compiled from many posts and threads.
    Special thanks to: mike1986., Hawke84, Kohr-Ah, jotha, mf2112, malybru, PaulGiz, erraggy and trkaaa for their useful posts and threads in which i've based to make this guide.

    How to flash the ICS 3.33 firmware

    Readme first
    1. There is no need to flash the radio. It is already included in the firmware package. (radio included: 11.76A.3504.00P_11.24A.3504.31_M)
    2. Check MD5 Checksum of every file before flashing it. MD5 Checker tool: Download the file, unzip it and follow the instructions
    3. CAUTION: This procedure can brick your phone. Please make sure you've read, understood everything and know how to do it before you continue.
    4. Please make sure your battery is fully charged before start flashing.
    5. As a precautionary measure, remove the sim card from the phone and keep it out during the whole process.

    Step 1. Flashing 4EXT recovery touch

    During the installation of ARHD ROM you will be asked if you want to add/flash certain features ( i.e: stock or custom kernel, TMOUS 4g support, sony bravia engine, among other things). To make those choices you need to flash 4ext recovery touch before the ROM, if you decide to flash the ROM with CMW recovery this options will not appear. 4ext recovery touch is included in ARHD by default, any other recovery will be overwriten after the installation.

    If you've decided not to flash ARHD and/or the ROM you've chosen do not require you to have 4EXT recovery touch installed, you can skip this section.

    To dowload and install the newest version of 4ext recovery TOUCH (v1.0.0.5 RC5). (thanks to madmaxx82) use one of the following methods provided:
    • First method: Your phone MUST be rooted in order to install the 4ext recovery touch. Follow the Installation guide (thanks to LarsChristian).
    • Second method: This method is only for windows users. Download the user-friendly 4EXT Recovery touch flashing tool. Check the MD5 of the zip, extract the downloaded file and read the guide inside.
      Is highly recommended to install the 4EXT Recovery Updater or 4EXT Recovery Control to keep up with the latest updates and news. Go to 4EXT thread or www.4ext.net.
    • Third method: Download this file, check the MD5 of the zip and install it following the steps 4 and 5 from post#1 in this thread.

      If you get the "CID error" you'll need to know what your CID is and manually add it to the android-info.txt file contained in the .zip, or you can do SuperCID following Step4 in this guide and repeat the process afterwards.
      NOTE: File used in third method WILL NOT install the needed 3.33 firmware in any way, only contains the recovery.img to flash 4ext recovery touch.

    Step 2. Backup your current ROM/Apps/Data
    1. Make a NANDROID backup of your current ROM.
      • Go to settings>power and untick fast boot
      • Power off phone
      • Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
      • Select recovery
      • Wait for 4EXT recovery touch to boot
      • Go to: backup|restore>Backup>Yes
      • Wait until backup is finished
      • Reboot phone
    2. Make a backup of your apps (with titanium backup or you preferred app). This is optional
    3. Make a backup of your SMS, contacts and important data. After superwiping and flashing the ROM all of them will be gone.This is optional
      You can use either the HTC sense buit-in backup option or one of this free apps:

    Step 3. Downloading the firmware package

    Download the latest 3.33 universal firmware package (PG58IMG.zip) from here.

    Step 4. Updating the firmware

    This step is MANDATORY otherwise you ROM will not boot. Please take a look at the firmware thread so you can understand what you are about to do.
    After updating the firmware you will have the 3.33 firmware with unlocked bootloader (revolutionary hboot 1.27). Which basically means that you can use advanced fastboot commands, such as: flash new radios and splashscreens
    1. Copy the PG58IMG.zip file you've downloaded to the root of the sdcard. Root of the sd card mean that you can't put the file inside any folder. Also, you can't rename the file. Please keep the PG58IMG otherwise the bootloader won't recognize it.
    2. Power off your phone or remove the batt and put it back again.
    3. Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
    4. Wait for the firmware package to be found and confirm to update as prompted
    5. Once it completed successfully and prompted you to reboot, pull the battery out.

    Step 5. Removing the PG58IMG.zip file from the sd card

    Now that you have updated the firmware succesfully, it is necessary to delete the PG58IMG.zip file from the sd card to gain access to the bootloader without being asked if you want to update the firmware. To do so, we have two options:

    Option#1. If you can have access to the sd card from a computer:
    1. Remove the sdcard from your phone,attach it to your computer and delete the PG58IMG.zip from the sdcard.
    2. Remove the sdcard from your computer and return it to your phone.
    3. Hold volume-down + power to boot into bootloader.
    4. Wait 10 seconds until the bootloader is fully loaded
    5. Now your bootloader screen should read:
      -Revolutionary-
      PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
      HBOOT-1.27.1100
      RADIO-11.24A.3504.31_M
    6. Navigate with the volume button and select recovery with the power button
    7. Wait for the recovery to boot
    8. You are good to go, now you can flash the ROM. Please follow post#2 in this thread.
    Option#2. If you can't have access to the sd card from a computer:
    1. Remove the sd card from the phone
    2. Hold volume-down + power to boot into bootloader.
    3. Wait 10 seconds until the bootloader is fully loaded
    4. Now your bootloader screen should read:
      -Revolutionary-
      PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
      HBOOT-1.27.1100
      RADIO-11.24A.3504.31_M
    5. Insert the sd card now
    6. Navigate with the volume button and select recovery with the power button
    7. Wait for the recovery to boot
    8. You are good to go, now you can flash the ROM. Please follow post#2 in this thread.
    9. Delete the PM58IMG.zip file from your sd card using your preferred file manager as soon as your phone has booted succesfully. You won't be able to boot into recovery normally until you delete this file. As a workaround use this method to enter into recovery mode.

    [APR.16.12] How to flash/update Android Revolution HD Ice Cream Sandwich ROM

    The content in this guide will help you to flash/update the latest version of Android Revolution HD (ARHD) Ice Cream Sandwich ROM.
    • Android Revolution HD is a custom ROM based on latest official HTC 3.33.401.x update. It is mandatory to have (at least) the 3.32 firmware (3.33 recommended) flashed on your phone or else it will not boot.
    • Please check your current ROM base number under: Settings>About Phone>Software Information>More>Build Number. If the first digits of this number are 3.32 or 3.33 then you have the proper firmware flashed and you can continue following this guide. Otherwise you need to update the firmware first, to do so, please follow post#1 in this thread. This is a general guide and can be applied to flash any ICS 3.33-based rom afterwards.
    • Android Revolution HD can be flashed in HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation 4G & HTC Sensation XE
    • You can flash either non-xe (without beats audio) or xe (with beats audio) version. Yes, the only difference is beats audio.
    About S-ON / S-OFF and Hboot version​
    Please follow the instructions according to your Bootloader status (S-ON / S-OFF) and Hboot version
    The following information has been gathered and compiled from many posts and threads.

    How to flash/update Android Revolution HD v.6.7.x / 1.2.x
    Ice Cream Sandwich ROM

    Readme first
    1. You need the latest 3.33 firmware installed in your phone before flashing the ROM, please follow post#1 in this thread. This is a general guide and can be applied to flash any ICS 3.33-based rom afterwards.
    2. There is no need to flash the ARHD recommended radio. It is already included in the firmware package. (radio included: 11.76A.3504.00P_11.24A.3504.31_M)

    6. As a precautionary measure, remove the sim card from the phone and keep it out during the whole process.

    If you've followed the post#1 in this thread you already have 4EXT recovery touch installed and your data is backed up, please jump to the step3.

    If you have a previous version of ARHD installed (>6.4.0) you don't need to flash again the 4EXT Recovery touch, make sure you have the latest 3.33 firmware then jump to the step2.


    Step 1. Flashing 4EXT recovery touch

    During the installation of ARHD ROM you will be asked if you want to add/flash certain features ( i.e: stock or custom kernel, TMOUS 4g support, sony bravia engine, among other things). To make those choices you need to flash 4ext recovery touch before the ROM, if you decide to flash the ROM with CMW recovery this options will not appear. 4ext recovery touch is included in ARHD by default, any other recovery will be overwriten after the installation.

    If you've decided not to flash ARHD and/or the ROM you've chosen do not require you to have 4EXT recovery touch installed, you can skip this section.

      NOTE: File used in third method WILL NOT install the needed 3.33 firmware in any way, only contains the recovery.img to flash 4ext recovery touch.

    Step 2. Backup your current ROM/Apps/Data
    1. Make a NANDROID backup of your current ROM.
      • Go to settings>power and untick fast boot
      • Power off phone
      • Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
      • Select recovery
      • Wait for 4EXT recovery touch to boot
      • Go to: backup|restore>Backup>Yes
      • Wait until backup is finished
      • Reboot phone
    2. Make a backup of your apps (with titanium backup or you preferred app). This is optional
    3. Make a backup of your SMS, contacts and important data. After superwiping and flashing the ROM all of them will be gone.This is optional
      You can use either the HTC sense buit-in backup option or one of this free apps:

    Step 3. Downloading the installation files
    1. Download the Sensation superwipe script (is the same for Sensation /XE/4G users) from the ARHD OP(Thanks to mike1986.). WARNING: Use only the superwipe script for the HTC Sensation. Using a different one can brick your phone.
    2. Download the ROM from the ARHD OP (Thanks to mike1986.). You can flash either non-xe (without beats audio) or xe (with beats audio) version. Yes, the only difference is beats audio.
      • 6.6.x XE = With beats audio
      • 6.6.x = Without beats audio
      • 1.2.x = Recommended for TMOUS users. Based on the latest official HTC 3.32.531.14 (U.S. T-Mobile) firmware. Without beats audio
    3. Copy the super wipe and ROM zip files to the sdcard

    Step 4. Flashing/updating the ROM
    Note to ARHD updaters!
    • If you are coming from ARHD 6.7.x version there is no need to superwipe. Flashing the ROM without superwipe will not modify or delete your data/settings/apps/desktop layout. However, the mods you've installed will be gone and you will need to flash them again. I'd recommend to check if the mods are available/compatible with the updated ROM you are flashing to avoid future issues.
    • If you are coming from a previous 3.32-based ARHD ROM (>6.4.0) superwipe is required highly recommended!. There have been some changes and updates in the ROM since then and the best advice is to do a clean install. Please consider a superwipe to avoid issues and get the better ARHD experience.
    • If you are moving from/to the XE ROM version, superwipe isn't required but recommended. If you decide not to superwipe and you are having issues or strange behaviour please consider a superwipe to avoid issues and get the better ARHD experience.
    1. Power off phone
    2. Hold volume-down + power button to boot into the bootloader
    3. Select recovery
    4. Wait for 4EXT recovery touch to boot
    5. Select install from sd card
    6. Install the superwipe script. This will wipe ALL your data and reboot the phone into recovery again when completed.
    7. Select install from sd card again
    8. This time flash the ROM and follow the on-screen instructions
    9. During the installation you will be asked the following questions:
      • Is your device HTC Sensation 4G?. This will add wifi calling option. ONLY FOR TMOUS USERS
      • Adding sony bravia engine support?. Check out this video. Most of users haven't noticed any difference with or without the bravia engine patch. So you make your choice.
      • Flashing boot.img.
        Step 1: Select between stock kernel and custom kernel. If you have a Sensation XE and you install stock kernel your phone will run @1.5GHz because that's the stock cpu speed. If you don't have a Sensation XE your phone will run @1.2GHz.
        Step 2: Select between SebastianFM kernel and faux123 kernel. If you want to have an idea of the difference between both go to this useful post. (Thanks to PaulGiz)
    10. When the ROM is fully flashed select back
    11. Select reboot from 4ext recovery
    12. Done, enjoy ICS :D, the first boot should take around 5-10 mins

    Step 5. After flashing
    1. Before restoring or installing any app go to settings>Security>Tick unknow sources. This will allow the installation of non-Market apps.
    2. If you are going to restore any of your apps make sure you don't restore system apps or data. Just restore user apps and their data. Please read this post for a short explanation of why you shouldn't backup/restore system data.
    3. Restore your SMS backup. You must've done a backup before flashing the ROM.
      You can use either the HTC sense built-in tool or one of this free apps:
    4. There is no need to flash the recommended radio, remember? you already have it.
    5. If you want to change the radio please visit Sensation RIL and RADIO thread and follow the instructions. (Thanks to mf2112)
    6. TMOUS Users, there is something you can do to possibly improve your data speeds and connectivity. For further information please visit Sensation RIL and RADIO thread and follow the instructions. (Thanks to mf2112)
    7. Don't forget to visit Hawke84's thread ICS Problem Fixes / Mods. (Thanks to Hawke84)

    Do you want to go back to Gingerbread?

    If you want to flash a stock ROM and/or you are changing back to S-ON using a RUU and it comes up with an error please follow the second method posted here. You can also reboot your phone manually into bootloader and then run the RUU.
    To change back to S-ON please follow the STEP 5 in this guide

    If you want to flash a custom Gingerbread ROM please follow this steps:
    1. You need to flash the proper GB firmware with Hboot 1.17.
    2. Go HERE And download the 1.17 universal Firmware. This file is the original Revolutionary 1.17.1111 Firmware with a completed Gingerbread Firmware v 1.45 package (It does contain the Radio 10.14.9035.01_M). (Thanks to Kohr-Ah for the User-Friendly Firmware)
    3. Follow the same steps you've followed to upgrade the firmware, but this time with the Hboot 1.17 PG58IMG.zip file.
    4. Flash superwipe script for sensation
    5. Flash Gingerbread ROM
    6. Or you can just restore your Gingerbread NANDROID backup, if you have one, AFTER downgrading the firmware and flashing the radio.
    7. Go to Radio/RIL thread and follow the instructions to check if you have the matching RIL (HTC-RIL 2.2.0169HMQ) for the 10.56.9035.00U_10.14.9035.01 radio contained in the 1.17 firmware package. (thanks to mf2112)

    hey thanks for the fanstastic guide...i have a completely stock sensation 1.18,, runinng 2.3.4,, revolutionary fails to get root..after a few searches i noticed that i have to use the taco root method..so will i have to use taco roo???t or am i doing some step in a wrong way..

    tacoroot is the solution
    and here is the guide
    SOFF WITH TACOROOT FOR HBOOT 1.18

    EDIT: jaoquinf
    why dont you add this guide to your OP..its 100% confirmed that for 1.18 HBOOT revolutionary is failing to get root (zerg root failed error)
    so just add a clause saying "in case of HBOOT 1.18 and revolutionary failed while acquiring root ..use this guide .or something"

    just a suggestion though :D

    oh damn.. :( so i will have to download a non xe ROM right??? nd can i flash a sense 4 ROM using the same steps in ur guide???

    use beats mudhi's mod..it will give you equalizer
    just flash this mod via recovery...thats all

    BEATS MOD BY MUDHI

    sorry joaquinf for invading your thread :D
