Install Android 4.0.1 ICS Based ROM On HTC Incredible S [How To]

HTC Incredible S ICSThe Incredible S gets Ice Cream Sandwich! XDA-Developers forum member nikhil007mmus did not wait around for ICS to find its way onto the device, and so has been the case for many developers for a lot of Android handsets. The ROM – a beta for now – does have a few bugs right now but is pretty much stable as far as basic phone functions are concerned. Credit also goes to st.matt, Lordclockan, dh.harald, Twistedumbrella, Shaky153 and z3freak.

Before we go ahead with getting this ROM up and running on your device, you should know what you’re dealing with. Stuff like H/W video acceleration, tethering, UMS, USB Tethering and Camera are broken for now. The rest is pretty stable.

    I encountered a problem after flashing. The boot screen keeps repeating itself ( colourful blocks appearing and disappearing ) and it just stays that way..

      That’s the ICS Boot animation. Have you tried doing a complete factory reset from the recovery?
