Virtuous Team offers leaked version of ICS update for rooted HTC EVO 3D


The Virtuous Team has just released a custom ROM for the HTC EVO 3D based on a leaked version of the upcoming ICS update. This includes Android 4.0.3 and Sense 3.6; interestingly enough, this particular ROM is based off a leaked RUU for Virgin Mobile's version of the EVO 3D, which has yet to be released or even officially announced.

Right now, some people are experiencing problems with this ROM booting up, or issues with bootlooping. Additionally, a few people have accidentally updated their hboot versions, which in turn locked their devices. However, this can be easily circumvented by deleting the hboot that was included in the leaked RUU.

Active development on this ROM is currently underway to make sure everything is working properly, and it is only a matter of time before we see a fully functioning release. If you're brave enough to dive in head first, you can download the ROM at the link below, or simply follow that thread for the latest updates.

  • Awesome! Think ill wait though

  • Hmmm tempting, tempting! Lol.

    I might wait a bit and see how it develops.

  • I hope they share the RUU with the rest of the development community soon.

  • Is this for the CDMA or the GSM version??

    At present only the GSM version of the HTC EVO 3D and the HTC Sensation are supported, and the ROMs themselves are in beta form and their first release at that – don’t expect daily driver performance. Work from the developers includes resizing and recalibrating ROMs to work on qHD (960×540) screens, smaller both physically virtually tan the HTC One X’s 720p panel. In the best tradition of custom ROMs, they’ve also made a few speedy tweaks and removed bloatware that isn’t strictly necessary.

    HTC has committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich (and probably Sense 4.0) to both the EVO 3D and the Sensation, but it might be months before the updates materialize. If you can’t wait, download the files, reboot into a custom recovery and get crackin’. Both will require a full wipe (even from a stock ROM) so make sure and back up your data with Nandroid. It’ll still be a few weeks at the very least before the HTC One X is released, so it’ll be a while before the developers can upgrade their source files.

  • This is also a Sprint cdma leak that needs no resizing or anything.

  • Correction: this article is not about the new release from Sprint but there has been one since.
