    Hello,

    I just rooted my htc inspire 4g last week and successfully flashed the cyanogen mod7 on it.

    It has been working great for me so far but, I was thinking of checking out other roms especially miui.

    I checked out some of the forums, but there doesnt seem to be a guide or step by step instructions to do the same. There are a few guys who mentioned flashing the inspiremod rom before flashing the miui rom and other folks who mentioned to flash a different kernel . Its got me a bit confused and I was wondering if someone who has flashed the rom could help me out.

    As far as my knowledge goes, I thought flashing a rom would just include downloading the rom, booting into recovery, flashing the rom, wiping the cache, dalvik cache and it should be good to go.

    Thanks in advance.
    (Please do pardon my ignorance. Im just a newbie.)

    Just out of morbid curiosity, I decided to flash MIUI on my phone.

    If you have apps you would like to keep, I recommend downloading and installing Titanium Back up...back dat apps up..lol
    Any way, download MIUI onto you SD card: http://roms.miui.us/romsnippet.php?device=ace
    also download Tiamat Kernel onto your SD card: » HTC MSM7230 Devices

    Reboot into recovery, make sure to wipe both the Data/Cache and Davlik (found in advanced).
    Install the MIUI zip, and then install the Tiamat Kernal right after.
    Reboot and enjoy!

    Hello alchemist.

    Thank u so much for ur reply....
    But my patience ran out and I ended up flashing the freshly squeezed version of the miui rom which has the lordmod kernel and the inspiremod baked into it.... It seemed to be the latest.... Luckily I had backed up using Titanium beforehand and the reinstall was a breeze

    [ROM] MIUI 1.12.30 EN DE v.2: Freshly Squeezed Edition™ 02/01/12 - xda-developers

    Seem to love it so far

    Sorry I couldn't get to you sooner. I've been playing around with all the ICS roms here lately...lol
    I'm surprised that no one else tried to help out *shrugs*
    I'm glad the flashing came as easily for you as it did. I may have to try the Fresh Squeezed version at some point....I'm such a ROM-hoe...lmao.

    Glad you got it all worked out....Back to Absolution for me!

    Absolution....hmm.....now you got me thinking ...lol

    Thanks alchemist,

    Was looking through that since yesterday..
    Do we have any roms that are actually built off ICS? I thought most of them were just gingerbread based with the look and feel and features similar to ICS right?

    As you are a ROM ho you might want to check out boot manager in the market. You have to pay for it but it's worth every penny. I have 4 rom's on my phone and never have to flash a single one to boot into any of them. You will also need a large microSD card (I have a 32 gig one myself)

    I was actually thinking of moving to a 32gb class 10 card from my present 8gb one.I read about a few folks having issues with being stuck in a boot loop though...did you have any issues upgrading to a new card?

    No I just copied everything from my 8 gig to my 32 gig first then shut down my phone and replaced it.

    Worked fine after that.

    Just tried it looks about the same as IceColdSandwich. But I put it in slot 4 of boot manager. Will see how they progress.

    Nice thing about boot manager you can update the roms without having to flash them. Have updated IceColdSandwich twice now with no problem.

    When you see an update for a rom just download it then go into boot manager then the slot you want to update select install zip. Point it to the rom and make sure you select wipe cache. Let it finish then boot rom. You now have a updated rom and best of all your programs and data is still intact
