Preamble

I've been working on a CM9 port for the HTC Wildfire S since January 2012. After 5 month of work this is the first ALPHA release of the ROM. Neither CM9 is stable yet nor the HTC Wildfire S (Marvel) port is complete. Most of the features are working but it still needs bugfixing and polishing. We would like to improve the code and get as much as possible upstream.

I have to thank alquez who ported CM7 for the HTC Wildfire S. His work was a good starting point for CM9. Also thanks to Tobias Droste who was working with me on this ROM. Tobias we finally made it!
I also have to thank WinSuk and s0be working on CM9 for the Liberty. We worked together with those guys to get CM9 going. We will continue our collaboration in future.

Information

This ROM has been developed on a HTC Wildfire S A510e (European version). I suggest to use baseband version 47.23a.35.3035H_7.53.39.03M or newer. Others should work too.

It should work on marvelc and marvelct, but is completely untested. You need to provide dmesg if something is not working here. It should be possible to get the previous dmesg of a failed boot from your recovery.

This ROM is far from being finished, it can include a lot of bugs and can destroy your data. Use it at your own risk!

Reporting Bugs

If you want to report bugs please read THIS HOWTO first. Please try to provide logs if you see errors (logcat and dmesg). If you don't know how to do that check google or ask people here to help you. Don't contact me directly.

Enabling logcat Logging (Windows HOWTO: How to logcat like a Pro!)
adb shell dmesg
How to use strace?

All bug reports should go to the bugtracker.

If you think you find a bug take a look at the bugtracker first. Check if it already has been reported.

Download

You are storing very sensitive information on your phone. You always have to be careful what ROMs you flash and whom you trust. If you don't trust me then don't use my ROM or compile it from source by yourself.

The ROM will be gpg signed with my key 0xF33E3FC6. You can verify the ROM with 'gpg --verify marvel-cm-9.0.0-rc0-unofficial_rom-alpha0-signed.zip.asc'.

See https://www.torproject.org/docs/verifying-signatures.html.en for more information.

You can download the ROM here.

This ROM is not meant for daily use!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How to flash the CWM recovery?
A: Download the zip file for your phone and rename it to PG76IMG.zip and place it on your SD card. Then turn the phone on and boot into hboot. You can do that if you turn the phone off. Press the volume down button and hold it and then press the power button. The device will go into hboot and hboot will detect the zip file. It will ask you then to flash the recovery.

Q: Which radio version should I use?
A: I suggest to flash RUU Update Marvel S HTC_Europe_2.26.401.3 if you have S-OFF with XTC Clip

Q: Do I need to install Google Apps (gapps)?
Yes, you need them. You can get them from here. I suggest to use gapps-ics-20120317-signed.zip. People reported that the latest version (April) is a battery drainer.

Q: How can I install more apps on my phone?
Use A2SD/D2EXT/INT2EXT

Q: My wifi doesn't work, how can I fix it?
Android ICS detects your SIM card region (EN, US, AU, UK etc.) and stores it into some sort of Database file, which has all your Carrier info in it. If your SIM card (Carrier) is not correctly listed you can run into wifi problems.

Download the Wifix app or install the Recovery Flashable ZIP from here. There is also a tutorial how to fix it manually.

Q: Which GPS fix should I use for this ROM?
You shouldn't use any GPS fix at all cause they don't fix anything or have wrong certificates anyway. Read my blog post about the GPS fix myth.

Have fun!

Well...promised and delivered.
Since release of drivers everything seems to speed up in Dev˝s section,all i have to say is that this was fast,realy fast.
Congratz to you,and all devs you listed...RESPECT.

About the ROM..i was satisfied with the first build you gave us on IRC...it showed us that our hardware can handle ICS and gave people reason to expect something..which was nice.
To be continued with editing...

Now I understand that Us marvelc people spam these threads asking about if this ROM will work on our version of the phone and i understand that marvelc support was added as with mavelct but will we be able to install/boot the ROM.
Even if it boot thats all i need to know. I can also test it for you on our version of the WFS

Also, Fantastic work mate!

Sincerly, Jared

If you take the bug and fix the problem, I will raise the priority, else I will decide which priority to give it.

I'm going to try and contact the gt540 dev to see how he fixed deep sleep I can remember him saying that on his port it was the Bluetooth props that caused the phone not going into deep sleep.

This isn't google plus, what is with all this +1ing I'm seeing everywhere?! It doesn't add to the discussion at all, so just keep it to yourself.

And yes I am aware of the irony.

Whats wrong with you? I know you are posting non sense againts devs also...that is not good thing..by applying +1 i mean to say that i am supporting his idea and this is useful to us...

Try to be polite ,help every one you will feel good.....you are discouraging every where ..no 1 is interested in your jerky comments...
I AM APOLOGIZE DEV FOR THIS NON PRODUCTIVE COMMENT....
