First ICS ROM For HTC Flyer

XDA member AidenM shows the first ever ROM for HTC Flyer loaded with the newest operating system from Android: Ice cream sandwich. The work is based on Sensation RCMix 3D Leak w/ Dexter_nlb’s fixes for hardware and since it´s a beta version some bugs are present.

So far the Developer has a green light on:

– Wifi
– Market access
– AOSP lockscreen
– Rotation
– Touch
– ADB access
– External SD

It’s not perfect, here’s what’s not working:

– Camera
– Bluetooth
– Some settings panes (keyboard selecter)
– Rotation is blurry and pixelated
– HTC Apps not correctly sized for display
– Cannot take notes using the Pen

In order to install this ROM, you need to be Honeycomb S-OFF, after that just place the ROM on the root of your SD card and good to go. Remember always to do a nandroid backup and to wipe data and Dalvik just to be on the safe side. Here you can see a video of how it looks.

Much work need to be done before we have a fully daily operational ROM but it´s a good start, so if you are using it please report back to developer with your feed back so future versions can improve.
Thanks for reading.

Installation

You must have followed this guide first.

Then simply place the file on your external sd card (the one you can take out) and flash it. Reboot, it will take some time but it will.

Stuff you may or may not care about (read anyways)

When selecting a book in the Reader app it is not sized correctly but the book itself takes up the whole screen so it is usable
Root can be buggy, sometimes it denies permissions
Over 500 MB Free RAM

HW Keys are in testing but right now they crash the system.

Continue on to the ROM thread to find more
