For those of you who prefer the stock ICS apps for contacts and phone. This will do until CM9 is fully working :)

Just copy to /system/app and change permissions using root explorer.

I'm currently running this on Flex's rom seems to work ok.

Notes:
  • Phone - Dialpad doesn't auto look up contacts when dialing
  • Contacts - Doesn't switch to high res HaxSync photos



I take no credit for these, thanks to paulobrien on his HTC One X rom:

[ROM] MCR - MoDaCo.one for the HTC One X S4 (Sense + Vanilla)

Does anyone know how to fix the looking up of contacts when dialing the number on the dial pad?

Update on using the stock phone and contacts app.

Both work great! Have been using for a few days now. I removed the HTC Phone and Contacts apk's from /system/app.

Only thing that is happening which I find weird is whenever my phone comes up after a reboot, the stock contacts app opens up. Haven't been able to figure out why

I have noticed that once a phone call is started, it still uses the htc phone app even though I have removed it from system/app. Is there somewhere else I need to put the apk or some modding i need to do in the build.prop? These are minor issues but I would love to have these working perfectly. I'm surprised there isnt more people commenting in here and wanting these.

Correct. I removed the HTC contacts apk and the phone.apk. Below are the screen shots of what I'm getting.

Can we get a link for the ones on rootzwiki? Every one I find seems to lead to removed pages. If the T9 and mms works, I'd like to try it. Thanks!

I can't seem to get this to work. I'm using root explorer, I copy the phone.apk to system/app, change its permissions to rw-r-r, reboot, and nothing.
