Hello @mike1986. As a prodigal son I've come back to your great ROM after some years of wandering into other non ICS-based territories :D I need your support (also anyone else's would be welcome, of course). Everything works great but I'd need to enable diag port but so far I couldn't manage to do it. I've tried using adb commands:

adb shell
echo 1 > /sys/devices/virtual/android_usb/android0/f_diag/func_en


adb shell
enter. setprop sys.usb.config diag,adb

but none worked.
I'm s-off, bootloader unlocked, stock kernel, usb debugging enabled. I've installed both htc and qualcomm drivers but to no avail as I couldn't manage so far to set the device in diag mode.
An alternative would be to boot the phone in EDL mode but when I execute either adb or fastboot commands to reboot in edl the phone just "regularly" reboots as usual....
(I've also tried this method btw but phone just reboots normally...)

Any idea / support on how to either enable diag port/mode or edl?

Actually, besides the diag/edl issue, I have to report also that if I go into fastboot to check bootloader status by using command:
fastboot oem devices-info

I get this error message:
(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!
OKAY [ 0.007s]
finished. total time: 0.007s

Not sure if it's related with the issue of going into diag mode or edl mode...

At the end of the installation of this ROM I was told to give my opinion about it on XDA, hardly anyone needs it now in 2022 but I do: This is the usual last stock but with Root and a few programs, very liked Aroma-Installer can choose what components to install or not install
After installing the latest faux123 kernel my smartphone is much longer battery life and most importantly stops warming up very good!
I don't care what version of Android 4.0.3 has working programs for social networks and messengers but they are getting smaller and smaller but I can live without them
With the latest faux123 kernel this ROM works great, if you don't need a new android then this firmware is for you

    • Press the "Thanks" button.
    • Hit the donation button and "buy me a beer".
    • Share your opinion about my work and write some feedback in respective thread.
    • Advertise my work to your friends.
    • Rate my thread with 5 stars.
    Every way of support is highly appreciated, but it's not expected!

    2. Sharing policy

    This forum is about sharing. If you want to use any part of my work, please feel free to do it but remember about some simple rules:
    • Inform me about using my work by sending me a message. You don’t need my permission, just inform me.
    • Include link to my thread from where you took particular files.
    • Give proper credits for what you used.
    • When it comes to using my ROM as a base you are free to do it only if I don't have "Stock ROMs" thread available for particular device. If such thread exists, you are
      obligated to take ROMs from there instead. These threads with "Stock ROMs" are usually updated within 24 hours from the moment when I release my custom ROM.

    Sharing is one thing, but please respect some areas of my work like:
    • ROM name - "Android Revolution HD", "Android Revolution", "Revo HD", "AR HD" etc.
    • Graphics used in my threads, especially head-banners designed exclusivity for me.

    If you want to get the fastest and the best answer - ask the question in the thread. Every month I need to remove about 1.000 new messages from my XDA inbox. I’m sure it’s better if I spend this time cooking new ROMs.​

    4. Signature banners for users

    • Android Revolution HD Advanced User – every user might get this rank with proper banner by doing some amazing modification, application, theme etc. for Android Revolution HD.
      Creating simple bootanimation might not be enough, but you never know! Having Recognized User status before is not needed!

    • Android Revolution HD Supporter – every user who shared some server space with us (with proper bandwidth) will get this banner. Please keep in mind we can't use DropBox shared folders.
      What we can use is minimum 20 GB of space and 10 Mbit upload speed. If you want to donate some server space to us, please contact me via private message.

    Mods, Add-Ons and additional Links for ARHD on Sensation

    I have taken over this Mods thread originally created by Jotha and then maintained by Kohr-Ah for us ARHD users.

    While I try to keep track of mods home and work come first. So, If you have made something interesting for all users, inform me via PM with a link to the post, not on thread.
    If you find a dead link or if you think you should be credited for something published here, please inform me via PM, not on thread.

    I try to include only mods and animations that either the ARHD-Team or I tested or for which there are positive reviews on XDA.
    Mods that are tested by the Team or me are marked with an asterisk *.
    Sometimes however I may link to an untested or beta-version. I'll mark such a mod however.
    Mods that are installed by flashing in recovery are marked with a F.
    For all other links the installation method is described in the linked post.

    Flashing some mods may partially or completely erase other mods that you have already flashed. This is because they may include the same files with different modifications and overwrite each other.
    In some cases you can avoid that by flashing in a different order, sometimes you cannot avoid it and you only can have one of them.

    Most mods cannot be deinstalled without reflashing ROM. So always make a nandroid-backup before flashing unknown mods. In case of emergency you can revert to the state before.
    As there is more than one ROM on this thread, the mods and Add-Ons are ordered corresponding to the ROM they are made for.
    Do NOT flash a mod that is not made for your ROM version. It will not work or may even render your phone unstartable.

    Performance Tweaks for Android Revolution
    • Android Revolution HD EXT4 Tweaks v.0.1 * F - This mod will turn ON data_writeback for all 3 partitions - system, data and cache. This will drastically improve I/O performance (mostly on write operations) at the expense of file system integrity in certain situations, like unexpected system shutdown. The risk is not extreme, but still bigger then regular. Use this to improve your system performance, but you flash it at your own risk!
    • Android Revolution HD GPU Rendering v.0.1 * F - Force GPU rendering on 2D operations. This mod is working similar to "Render GUI with GPU" option in Development Settings. Flashing this will force whole system to use GPU rendering (instead of CPU) for all kind of 2D/3D operations. This might improve 2D operations performance, but keep in mind that some apps are not working correctly with GPU rendering. After using this mod you no longer need to tick "Render GUI with GPU" in settings. Even if un-ticked it will be still working. Flash it at your own risk!

    Q 1: After flashing Android Revolution HD my battery drains much faster. What can I do?
    A: Please charge your battery to 100%, boot your device in ClockworkMod Recovery and go to Advanced ---> Wipe Battery Stats. Also see Question 7.
    Also please read this ---> [GUIDE] Enlarge your battery life : an attempt to fix the battery drain
    And this ---> [How to] Brilliant Battery Life 100% working!
    For more details about wiping battery stats please read this

    Q 2: My Premium Navigation doesn't work correctly. What should I do?
    A: Your Premium Navigation may not work correctly for many reasons. Most of them are not ROM related. You can try the following things:
    - reinstall your Locations under "Settings" ---> "Locations"
    - remove /sdcard/.data/navigator/Data/Temporary from your SD card
    - re-download Google Maps from the Android Market
    - clear data from Google Maps in system software management

    Q 3: When recording HD video, the playback of the clip keeps freezing. How to fix it?
    A: This is probably SD card problem. Format your SD card (FAT32 recommended) to gain silky smooth playback.

    Q 4: After I reboot my device, mp3 ring-tone is back to default. What should I do?
    A: Go to Ringtones > Menu > More Ringtones > Create new ringtone > Select the one you want (Thanks to kill4l)

    Q 5: Is there any alternative for SetCPU? I think it slows downy my phone.
    A: You can application called No-frills. Remember to check "Allow on boot" option.

    Q 6: After flashing Android Revolution HD my SD card is being mounted as ready only. What should I do?
    A: Connect your SD card to your PC and do defragmentation process. If you still have some problems with SD card, please read this.
    Mac users can use the repair function of the MacOS disk utility to solve the read only problem (Thanks to Calimero1205).

    Q 7: My CPU load is all the time nearly 100% and in most part it's used by system. What is the reason of that high CPU usage and how can I fix it?
    A: Delete your account. It takes A LOT of your battery and CPU usage.

    Q 8: Do I need to wipe data partition when upgrading from old version of Android Revolution HD?
    A: I always recommend wiping data partition but it's absolutely necessary only if I mention that in the changelog. But normally you can live without it.
    Wipe data partition if you experience any issues.

    Q 9: I have some strange issues with my ROM that nobody reported before. What should I do in first place?
    A: In first place you should check, if the MD5 Checksum is correct. Then flash ROM again and see if the issue is gone. A lot of strange issues can be solved this way.

    Q 10: I had SetCPU installed on Android Revolution HD, then I flashed new version of AR HD and SetCPU doesn't work any more. How to fix it?
    A: Please reinstall SetCPU.

    Q 11: I can't send/receive MMS or I can't connect with mobile data connection. How can I fix it?
    A: Please check your MMS settings or mobile data connection APN settings.

    Q 12: My phone got random freezes or reboots. How can I fix it?
    A: Every CPU is different. It seems that your CPU doesn't like OC or UV (undervolt). Set your CPU to default 1GHz.
    If it doesn't help, then you need to flash default kernel from the second post.

    Q 13: When I listen to music from HTC stock player it accidentally pauses for short time and then keep playing.
    A: Turn OFF fastboot in settings.

    Q 14: My GPS signal is very weak or GPS is not working at all. How can I fix it?
    A: There are some solutions:
    1. You can download and install FasterFix to improve your signal strength.
    2. You can download and install GPS Status & Toolbox to manage your GPS settings.
    3. Turn off "Fast boot" under "Settings" ---> "Power" and reboot your phone.
    4. Read this, this, this & this
    5. [Trick] Speed Up Satelite Fix for GPS on Android

    Q 15: My clock/weather widget doesn't show my location. How can I fix it?
    A: Please clear data from Google Maps, Clock Widget, Weather, HTC weather sync provider and Weather Provider.

    Q 16: My Quadrant score is not as high as on different ROM. What does it mean?
    A: It means absolutely nothing. Benchmarks on Android System are more or less lottery and they are not showing the real system performance.
    There are many settings that can force Quadrant to show more then 3000 points but it's faked performance, that actually can slow down your phone in some circumstances.
    What I always emphasize is a real performance, the one you can feel under your fingers. Remember that I/O has some limit and surpassing it shows just a numbers without true ratio.
    Also keep in mind that Quadrant has support for Android Gingerbread only in version 1.1.7 and higher.

    Q 17: I have process force close few times a day. How can I fix it?
    A: It's because you have removed HtcTwitter.apk (HTC Twitter application). Please restore it.

    Q 18: My screen-lock sound and keypad sound while dialing numbers is very low. How can I fix it?
    A: Download "Quick Settings" application from Android Market and check system volume slider.

    Q 19: When I open up the call screen (where I see the recent calls and callers), the calls won't appear in the list. What to do?
    A: Probably you are using 3rd party launcher. Remove the dialer shortcut and re-add it.

    Q 20: My Wi-Fi doesn't reconnect automatically after boot. How to fix it?
    A: Disable fastboot in settings or check this solution.

    Q 21: Why my "4G" icon is gone from the status bar?
    A: My ROMs are based on WWE HTC ROMs. It means that there is no "4G" icon but you have HSPA+ connection with "H" icon anyway.


    You think you're addicted from flashing ROMs, checking forum the whole day and you feel like "Android" should be your second name? Well, here's something for fun :D
