    Default Can't install any ICS ROMS

    Here's the deal. Ever since the ICS leak for the 3D I found a link for a list of "Fully functional ROMS" at this link. Yet when I try to install them, I always get boot-loops. Has anyone installed any of these ROMS because I'd like to try them out myself.

    I heard that I was supposed to install a certain kernel. Even when I did that, I still got bootloops.

    What your guys issue is probably that your using TWRP recovery. You need clockwork recovery. TWRP doesnt flash ICS ROMs.

    Clockwork caused my boot loop, bro.

    So was it clockwork that caused it, or something you did and/or the ROM file did. Clockwork has been solid for everyone I know.

    Have you tried 4ext? Based off of CWM , but 110% better.

    I'm having the same problem, can't flash any ICS roms it just goes into boot loop, and I'm using 4ext, which is awesome by the way. anyway, I just realized I have 2.08 and not 2.17 could that be where I keep getting hung up? if so what should I do? Flash the update?

    This may be your fix:

    Get Flash Image GUI from the market.
    - Open it and leave it set on the radio button "Kernel Image"
    - Browse for the ROM you want to install and select it.
    - Hit OK a bunch of times and it will pull the kernel from the ROM. It will flash it and then you should boot into recovery when it prompts you. Then flash your actual ROM from recovery.

    Let me know how it goes for you.

    You could also look up joeykrim and Scrosler has it stickied. It's joeykrim's app and it's super.

    You need the 2.17 firmware.

    Default Re: Can't install any ICS ROMS

    so i tried the flash image gui, and then tried installing it, and it loaded to the i guess home screen, all i saw was the time, battery percentage, and my service bars, which had a X above it, and then it rebooted, and then it just does that over and over. i only tried it once, because when i try restoring one of my backups it wont and does the whole white htc sreen over and over. and i relocked and unrooted my device so now i have the 2.17. so im not really sure what the issue is. im using 4ext. pretty confused, especially the part where after it doesn't work it wont load a backup...second time its happened. suggestions anyone!??
    thanks for the advice.

    I have exactly the same problems... Unlocked hboot 1.5 (HTC method), 4ext recovery, 2.17 firmware. Did the "superwipe" which some people recommend. Both CleanROM and meanROM ICS versions boot loop no matter how many resets, battery pulls, etc., I do. I haven't yet tried the Flash Image thingie that UTnick suggests.

    How are you guys going about flashing this? I'm on hboot 1.5 and I flashed cleanrom from 2.08, so no, 2.17 is not necessary. I did mine via PC though.

    My flash process for hboot 1.5
    1. Download rom and put on my SD root.
    2. Back up anything that needs backed up.
    3. Boot into fastboot.
    4. Open command prompt on my PC. You may need to change directories to wherever your shooter.img is.
    5. Ensure phone is in fastboot and plug it into my PC. It should now read fastboot USB.
    6. In the command prompt type:

    Code:
    fastboot boot cwm-4.0.1.4-shooter.img
    and hit enter.

    7. Phone should reboot into recovery.
    8. Unplug it from my PC, nandroid, factory reset, flash rom zip.
    9. Once flashed, I reboot and let it do its thing.

    Note: I use cleanrom ics. There's a separate boot.img you need to flash to use xda's newtoroot's ics/sense 4.0 rom. I have not tried it out, but hboot 1.5 people have reported success in flashing.

    Most flash the boot.img after the ROM via fast boot.

    I'm having the exact same problem tried everything you did too

    Can anyone confirm that going from s-on to s-off (via the bricking/downgrade method, wire trick method, etc.) will fix the boot loop problem?

    Has anyone with s-on gotten an ICS ROM to work without boot looping?

    Thanks.

    Was on s-on and the only rom that worked for me was newt. Everything else gave me bootloop. Did the downgrade and everything else works. It's worth the effort to go s-off.. I'm on meanrom right now

    Yeah I finally bit the bullet and got s-off using the Juopunutbear wire trick, it was actually pretty easy. Now running MeanROM ICS too, seems to be a good ROM so far. By the way in both the s-off and ROM flashing I didn't wipe anything but still everything worked.

    I can confirm that works.
    I have 1.5 hboot with S-ON and the only way it works is to flash the boot using fast boot.

    I also kept trying with both TWRP and CWM and would boot loop.
    Was able to get the Newts One S ICS ROM and the MikVirgin ICS ROM installed successfully.

    For me, TWRP with SuperWipe then flash ROM then boot into fastboot and flash boot w/fast boot usually 100% success.
