    You can only install sense roms with s-on. If you want cm9 or any other aosp rim you need s-off with a downgraded hboot.

    Thanks for the FYI on this. I was looking to flash Harmonia as a replacement if the stock, rooted rom didn't perform as expected. Now I know I have to go a step further to get the performance I need.
