Hi all,

I finaly got working android ICS 4.0.3 with Sense 3.6 on my girlfriend's HTC Rhyme.

if you like MIUI on this phone, check this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2262618

Source ROM and Recovery is from Chinse site bbs.anzhi.com. Here si link to ROM http://bbs.anzhi.com/thread-5424057-1-1.html

Geting something from this site is little confusing :), you have to register, them wait 10 minutes, after it post reply to thread where you want see download links. Some files (big rom zip file) is hosted on 115.com service, which is another fight to get something from it :D.

I have istalled rom about 1 day and it seems to be very stable, fast and clean. Memory footprint is 100MB smaller that original rom. So I have free up to 230MB!!!. I had no mandatory issues with this rom.

One litle problem is, that I can't manage google account, because in settings->accounts and sync isn't option to add/manage google account, but I can simple add is via Play.

So let's go on

1. Step
Unlock your bootloader via HTCdev.com

2.step
flash boot.img and recovery.img
Code:
path/to/fastboot flash boot path/to/boot.img
path/to/fastboot flash recovery path/to/recovery.img

3.step
reboot to recovery, do full wipe (format cache, data, system partitions) and install bliss_signed_7.zip from sd card.
Optionaly flash gapps.zip downloaded from http://goo.im/gapps/ I use latest ics gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip
reboot

thats all.

if you don't know how to istall/use fastboot, you teach it while you do bootloader unlock on htc site.

After boot, setup wizard started and you can select English lang.

Download files here http://bliss.ikfsystems.sk and don't forget to check md5sums.

This procedure works for me, but may not for you. You do this at your own risk.

thanks a lot for your effort. i am a little afraid to flash this rom and i guess i'll wait a little while for the official update. could you share some later impression on how the device performs compared to gingerbread?

Mirrors

Can I ask you please upload it into accessible storage. This Chineese site links to storage portal 115.com which changed their policy and accounts are created only to users within China and verify this by using SMS verification only on Chineese mobile telecoms.

If you still have it please upload it wherever you find suitable.

Thank you in advance. :angel:

Can't download the rom.

Also, the chinese filehost is a pain in the ass... even with Google Translator i can't understand how to download.
Someone can Mirror this for me. Cause the mirror from tio289 isn't working
.

Code:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /bliss_signed_7.zip on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Hello, I set permissions to rom file, because somebody boosts server load with automated tool, which many times download rom file. I can add password here, so send me private msg and I send u pswd.

    Hello guys,

    I downloaded and flashed the latest rom for Rhyme from the htc dev site.
    It is with Android 4.0 (ICS) and Sense 3.5.
    After that I unlocked it again with the dev site, and then successful rooted with flashing this Chinese recovery!!!!! It was just an idea and its working like a harm! :D
    It is now fully rooted! I have cwm, I can backing up & restore, and flashing dropbox & su under cwm.

    Merry Christmas!
