[Guide] HTC Desire S ICS CyanogenMod 9 Alpha

[Guide] HTC Desire S ICS CyanogenMod 9 Alpha

Also for HTC Desire S comes time to get a custom ROM with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, namely the queen of the custom ROM, CyanogenMod 9 based on Android 4.0.3 ICS version. As in most cases, even now it is a fully functional non-Alpha, which has some bugs waiting to be fixed.

All in all though, you might even think hypothetically use this ROM daily if you have special needs. Here is a list of what is currently not working in the ROM:

  • Video Recording
  • Front camera
  • FM Radio
  • USB tethering
  • Even the rear camera does not work but you can flash an experimental package after flashing the ROM, which should allow you to have a very first feedback with the camera. In the official thread on XDA is not specified that you have to unlock the bootloader to flash the ROM, then it will be enough just to have a modified recovery and root to follow these simple steps below:

  • Download CyanogenMod 9 Alpha Builds
  • Download Google Apps ICS
  • turn off the Desire S and start it by pressing and holding the Power button and Volume together down
  • navigate to Recovery and confirm with power button
  • once in recovery, do a full wipe (system, cache, data)
  • select Install Zip From sdcard and then Choose zip From sdcard
  • list, select the zip file of the ROM you just downloaded and confirm
  • wait until the whole procedure is finished without touching the smartphone
  • once finished everything, repeat the same procedure and install the ICS Google Apps
  • all finished reboot and enjoy the new CyanogenMod 9 Alpha
  • Most importantly, we must not flash any other kernel AOSP otherwise you could block it. If you want to install the package for experimental ROM, download this file, Room Additions, and install it from recovery as for a ROM.

    As always, you are always very careful because you do everything at your own risk. If you install the ROM let us know and provide us with the very first impressions.
