This is now considered a beta version of Ice Cream Sandwich for the HeroC. Please keep all comments/communication about this ROM in this thread, and keep the Development thread clean for people actively working on the ROM.

No guarantees that anything will work, or that your phone will not be turned into a brick or a toaster. Please backup if you value what is currently on your phone.

You can use this with or without gapps. If you load them both on the initial setup, be sure to select "Setup Wizard" when the system first comes up.

In its current state this ROM with GAPPS needs around 155M in /system. I am currently running firerats at 160/20 just to be safe for testing purposes. I would recommend at least 155 for system.

There are some obvious places where we can reduce the size, but that will come as we continue to refine and move forward. Performance in not great, but overall it is fairly functional. Gapps are just some a minimal version to get Market working.

THIS ROM TAKES A LONG TIME TO BOOT (ESPECIALLY FIRST BOOT).

Boot animation has been added in 26NOV version. Please be patient.
This is a work in progress and there remain many Opportunities for Improvement (the gentle euphemism for Defects).

Working (at least for me):
  • Touchscreen
  • Trackball
  • Phone
  • Data
  • WiFi
  • MMS
  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • SD Card
  • Market
  • GPS
  • Gallery
  • Boot Animation
  • LatinIME Keyboard
  • Prediction/Dictionary
  • Network Stats (Data Usage)
  • Headsets (Audio Jack & HTC 11 Pin)

Not Working:
  • Camera
  • Gallery2
  • Graphics Acceleration
  • TBD (Lots of other stuff)

FAQ / Fixes

DATA ISSUES
If you are having issues with Data try the following settings:
  • "Data enabled" checked
  • "Data roaming" unchecked
  • "System select" Home only
If you still have issues with data, please capture the output of "adb logcat -b radio" from boot to completely booted and post it to pastebin or equivalent.

KEYBOARD ISSUE
Attached below is a replacement keyboard that doesn't have the bottom row off-screen. This is just a quick hack to get a functional keyboard. After some clean up and testing, I will include it in the releases going forward. Just replace the existing /system/app/LatinIME.apk with this one for the time being.

whoa man, already? YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!

p.s- happy thanksgiving btw!!

edit:btw downloading it right now,, going to give it a go

---------- Post added at 10:45 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:03 AM ----------

hmmm after the HTC screen, i get a black screen showing nothing. Plugged the charger and shows charging light.. Still waiting for it, it's been like 3 minutes. im on 170 40 mtd settings. K nvm it setup just appeared. For those that are trying, wait for it.

EDIT: K been messing around with it (sorry for all these edit, just trying to prevent a lot of posts and I am awake this late so might as well show some heads up) but problems I found
1) Keyboard is half (missing space bar and the alt function)
2) Screen orientation is choppy
3) Im missing the actual market app, might be firerats issue

I found a pointless feature.. but using the trackball brings up a cursor lol didn't know it'd do that. Making it "click" u have to press the ball then scroll quickly rather than just keep clicking the ball.

Thank you ICS Team. Other than the items listed in the OP, I cannot get data to work. Phone is stuck on No Service and every few minutes will jump to roaming and then back to no service. If I try to call a number with the dial pad, the dial pad disappears after I press send, I assume this is because I have no cell signal. Could not test google apps due to no data. I was still able to play with the home screen, widgets, etc.

@ Majin101, my keyboad seems to be working ok, I do have the market app but haven't tried to use it yet. I am not using firerats mod. If anyone else tries to flash this, make sure you wait a few minutes for the rom to boot as mentioned in the above post. You will see a blank screen but it will eventually boot.

Findings.

Okay, Seems nice. There is no bootscreen, so be patient, when setting up, choose "setup wizard"(this is kind of a no brainer, but you never know). Alright:
1. Data isn't working, I changed the roaming settings, but it didn't help.
2. As mentioned in an earlier post, the keyboard is missing some keys.
3. I do however have the market application. I used the gapps in the op and am using firerats 160 40
Really amazing work. The fact that this is even running on my hero amazes me. And they thought it would have trouble with eclair ;)

Data is working well for me with the following settings:
  • "Data enabled" checked
  • "Data roaming" unchecked
  • "System select" Home only

Try that, and if you still have issues with data, please capture the output of "adb logcat -b radio" from boot to completely booted and post it to pastebin or equivalent.

As i was installing in cwm i got an error stating "random offset: 0 x 150" yet the rom still installed. Any ideas as to what this was/is?

I got the same error. It booted just fine and I thus ignored it. Would be nice to know though.

For those that want to fix the keyboard, just download ics keyboard from market. For those that cannot download from market, use root explorer to go into "cache" and create a folder named "downloads", for those that want to increase scrolling speed etc., flash the TweakZ.zip found in the android general forum here at XDA. I would also recommend setCPU.

I also got Random Offset 0x1ba. Once rebooted, HTC screen showed up then black screen. I waited 10 min but it looked frozen. So I pulled the battery. Then I accidentally formatted my SD card and the fun was over.

The "random offset" comment has to do with the flashing of the kernel. I'm not entirely sure but I think it has to do with the way the boot.img is packed. Should be harmless though..

Good to see you'll got this thing running though. :)

Another feedback!

pros
1) Ive been texting sending and recieving just fine no problems (havent tried mms)
2) Made calls talked fine (although my face kept hitting the end button..)
3) Installed swype, texting is fine now and changed the dictionary too english to get rid of those red lines under the words
4) Also increased pointer speed to just use the trackball if needed

other bugs:
1) Noticed that some of my notification doesn't make a sound or plays
2) When I play music its coming through the ear piece speaker rather than the back speaker
3) google map fails to login

Darn looks like I have to go back to CM7.1. People try to call me but my won't won't tell me someone is calling and their isn't any sound either. Also the gallery app opens but doesn't show pictures and apps are missing from the market but thats probably a build.prop issue.

-------
Just flashed without mtd and it seems to be working better. I'm receiving calls and can hear my sound now.

Great job guys! Running for about an hour and besides the above mentioned bugs, I've noticed one more.

When I put the phone on the charger it becomes unresponsive and the screen goes dark. No way to wake the phone nor is the charging led on.

The only way I can charge the phone is to do a battery pull and boot the phone while on the charger.

    Update Posted - 01-MAR-2012

    Integrating development with Evervolv team. Brings alignment with ICS 4.0.3 development.

    I am working to integrate the HeroC ROM with the Evervolv team so that the HeroC will continue to benefit from ongoing development and attention that I no longer have the bandwidth to provide.

    Once this is complete MattCrystal (and perhaps dastin1015, ajrty33 and others) will be able to keep development going and future updates coming your way. I will be around to support them as time permits.

    I would like to offer my thanks for the support I have received from this community, and the spirit of help and cooperation that has made this a great experience. I just don't have the time and capacity to contribute much more at this point in time.

    So long and thanks for all the fish!

    nice jaybob ! btw i was ur 500th for ur thank u meter =)

    Appreciate it. No prizes though. :(

    Recently noticed that my thanks are inching ever closer to my posts. :)

    Handing Off

    EDIT: when you get things setup like you want them jaybob, where will we see future updates come from? This thread or perhaps the evervolv website or somewhere else maybe?

    The initial updates and testing are complete, and the Evervolv version should now be able to be built straight from github sources. I am handing off to MattCrystal to maintain, update, build, etc. I will support him as the need arises, and as my time permits.

    I would anticipate that he will create a new thread to post updates, but obviously the timing and location will be up to him and those working with him.

    Thanks to Matt for being willing to pick this up, and providing continuing support for the HeroC. I sincerely appreciate it, and am glad that there is someone to pick up the slack.

    Thanks again to the entire HeroC community for all of the support, laughs, fellowship, and encouragement over the course of my public development efforts that started with the Extremely Blue Rom (and all of the other colors), and continued with GingerBread builds, kernel updates, on through to ICS. It has been a lot of fun, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. See you around.
