FAQ

Q: Bootloops on HBOOT 1.50 S-ON?
A: For all ICS ROMs, if you get bootloops, just Google for “AnthraX-htcleak-rls1.zip” and install it in CWM to get rid of bootloop.

  1. Ark.Bishop says:

    Will this ROM work on a Sprint EVO 3D CDMA? Additionally, is anybody having issues with the 3D camera? When I turn the 3D camera the screen goes black and if I take a picture (from the black screen), it takes the picture however you can barely see the image due to the purple and green colors that take over it. I am also not able to see my 3D picture library in 3D anymore. Is there anything have to do in the settings to make them work? This only happens with any ICS ROM. Any help will be greatly appreciated

      Weird, I’m having this problem on my friends phone not mine. My EVO 3D with this very same ROM is working Perfect! I have no idea why the 3D camera is acting up?

  3. frankzhac says:

    Are there any ICS Roms fo htc evo 4G? and could this Rom work on the Evo 4G?

  4. Manny Akim says:

    OMG, I tried doing this to my friends EVO 3d which was already rooted by me HBOOT 1.50 S-ON UNLOCKED. I used flashgui like I did mine and then booted into “recovery”. I then proceeded to install mikvirgin rom again and after completion, I reboot. Phone was stuck on bootloops. So I tried that anthrax fix, no luck. I tried the other bootloop fixes, no luck. I even tried this method:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1666133

    no luck.

    I finally tried using fastboot USB and re-installed CWM. The thing finally worked, it took serveral hours, my friend was without a phone, so I gave him mine to use in the mean time.

    I appreciate all the kind remarks and all but I’m just simply spreading the word. The Person you should really be Thanking is Chad Goodman he is the real Developer of this Kernel, without him none of this word be possible. Just remember the “AnthraX-htcleak-stockfirmwaretest Kernel” breaks alot of things in different ICS ROM’s like 3D, Video Playback ect. Chad if you’re reading this, we all appreciate your hard work and wish you would come back to XDA. Unfortunately I have to take the links down within a few days, so feel free to download!

    • MNUKY says:

      Raymond, can you please re-post the step how to get no bootloops on the 3d Evo? I do have the files that you posted a while ago but i just need to remember how to flash the kernal after flashing the rom. I flash MiKVirgin rom using GUI image but ended up in bootloops.

  6. MNUKY says:

    Hey Max, I was over at XDA and I stumbled over this post {JUOPUNUTBEAR S-OFF} and this is their site http//unilimited.io. They are talking about how to get s-off on hboot 1.5 without downgrading. I was wondering if you know about it and maybe make a video that we can benefit from.Thanks in advance

    • Chris says:

      To all having bootloop issues due to S-ON, the downgrade from hboot 1.5 to hboot 1.4 is an option that will probably work if you can get your hands an a linux machine. If you dont have access like i dont then the “JUOPUNUTBEAR” option worked for me! I had to do the wire trick a couple times but in the end i came out with S-OFF. I also used this method using simply 3d gb rom so if you do not have your stock rom this custom rom WILL work with juopunutbear. Ive flashed ICS mean rom & mikvirgin rom using 4ext flawlessly! Thanks to XDA personal & Zedomax for this great site my 3d evo is now free to flash ICS roms without issues!

      • MNUKY says:

        Yeah man the wire trick is the bomb.Did it last night was successful after several tries.At first I couldn’t get it to work because I was running ICS Mean rom but as soon as I flashed my stock GB backup, I was able to gain S-Off after 3 attempts. Now I am rocking MikVirgin ICS with no bootloops. Loving it.

  7. chris says:

    worked like a charm on a 1.50 with S-on using http://htcevohacks.com/htc-evo-3d-hacks/how-to-install-kernelrom-on-a-rooted-hboot-1-50-for-htc-evo-3d-htc-unlock/

    No fuss just booted into ClockworkMod Recovery wiped phone and installed from SD like the instructions say.

  8. Wayne says:

    Hey mik mik this is by far the best ICS rom I’ve ever seen but I am having usb mass storage issues pc doesn’t recognize my phone and vice versa and kernel or setting adjustments could use to correct this.

  9. Anthony says:

    IVE HAD NO LUCK WTH MIKVIRGIN, MEANROM OR ANY ICS ROM FOR THAT MATTER. TRIED CWM AND 4EXT, USED THE ANTRAX FILE WHEN I RAN INTO BOOT LOOPS, BUT THEN HAD PROBLEMS WITH GAPPS, WIFI, USB MOUNTING OR CAMERA. WHAT I DONT UNDERSTAND IS WHY I HAD NO ISSUES WHEN I FLASHED MIKVIRGIN ON MY LAST EVO 3D WHICH I PURCHASED ON LAUNCH DAY. ALL THE ISSUES IM HAVING ARE ONLY WITH MY REPLACEMENT EVO 3D AND THEY WERE BOTH 1.50 S-ON WITH LATEST OTA ROOTED ROM. IF ANYONE HAS FIGURED OUT HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY FLASH ICS AFTER HAVING THE SAME ISSUES I HAD, PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW TO, THANKS

    • Wayne says:

      Hey oddly enough I didn’t wipe cache or davlik or factory reset after ota rom I just installed 4ext and flashed mik mik and the anthrax kernel before reboot and viola ics deliciousness but still no usb mass storage support but other than that I have had no problems

  10. Enrique says:

    The only problem I have is the 3D camera goes into a black screen when I flip the switch (to 3D) & I can’t view anything in 3D. Everything else works. Even after a full wipe & installing the boot loop fix.

    I flashed this rom using the instructions from the “How to install kernel/rom on a rooted hboot 1.50 for evo 3D” post.

    Any help would be appreciated guys. Great rom, it’s just useless to me since I love taking 3D pics.

  11. GRIMmEvO says:

    I was on 1.5 S-on and tried the wire trick on my first attempt as per maxx flashed MiKVirgin rom and no more boot loops. Now i have ICS on my EVO3D and loving it. Thanks to the Dev’s for setting me free. Thanks to you maxx for breaking down this hack to a more understandable level.

  12. k22 says:

    For all that are experiencing bootloops and issues flashing ICS rom kernels I have hboot 1.50 and s-on and to get around the issue if you use fastboot to Flash the wanted ICS Kernel and then use clockwork to flash the rom your issue is resolved.
    what you will need is
    1.) adb and fastboot and htc drivers. I am using the files included with the rootevo3dnew.zip That I used when unlocking my 3d
    2.)The ICS rom of your choice
    3.)Clockwork or other aftermarket recovery

    The process is
    1. Download the ICS ROM put one copy in the root of you SD and another on the computer you are using to flash.
    2. From your PC Unzip the rom and Extract the boot.img from the kernel folder and copy the file to the folder you have the adb and fastboot files in. I add it to the rootevo3dnew folder replacing the current file named boot.img.
    3. Power your device on holding the Volume down and power at the same time.
    4. Select fastboot and plug the device into the PC. You will see fastboot USB on the device.
    5. Open a Command prompt and navigate to the folder you have the boot.img, adb and fastboot in. my path looks like C:\Users\k-22\Downloads\rootevo3dnew>
    6. Enter fastboot flash boot boot.img Example C:\Users\k-22\Downloads\rootevo3dnew>fastboot flash boot boot.img
    You will see
    sending ‘boot’ (3754 KB)…
    OKAY [ 1.020s]
    writing ‘boot’…
    OKAY [ 7.092s]
    finished. total time: 8.117s

    At this point you have flashed the Kernel.

    7. Go to the device and select recovery which will boot into clockwork
    8. select install from zip and select the ICS rom zip file you put on the SD earlyer
    9. Once the install is complete select back and then reboot from clockwork.

    The device will reboot ad you will have a Proper ICS Kernel and rom I have used this method to resolve bootloops and change kernels.

    Hope this helps……….

    i am having issue with the usb tethering not working. i get an error code 62.

  14. Alex says:

    This has happened to me quite a few times already. After downloading the rom file, as I attempt to install it using CWM recovery, I get an “Install aborted (bad)”. I assume this means the file is bad. so I download the rom again from the XDA site and still its “(bad)”. What do I do to install the rom? It happened most recently for the VIper ICS rom and I tried to install my old synergy rom (the one that had two files, one to format and one that was the actual rom). Thanks.

  15. gil says:

    works good with my htc evo 3d hboot 1.5, sOff.

      • David M. says:

        Hi MAX I love this ROM and it works great, however I am not able to tether now that I am running this ROM. can any one help me? All of the tablets recognize my phone and remember it, but the device never connects. Please Help, I really need to tether.

        • David M. says:

          I still can’t tether, and I have found out that my Superuser has stoped, can you please help me to get my superuser permission again. thank you for your help.

  18. Al Magic says:

    I’m having bit of weird problem. Phone keeps on restarting and powering of on its own. About every couple of minutes.
    History and about phone:
    Bought phone with factory android 2 rom. hboot 1.5.
    Flashed phone myself to metro, got everything working calls/texts/mms/internet
    Updated radio
    So far this has been running with no problems for a month.

    Then saw this and decided to get this rom.
    did s-off successfully.
    used ext4 recovery to wipe partition/cache/dalvek, except sd card successfully.
    Installed rom successfully.
    Everything works except 3d camera, but I don’t care for it.
    Now on first day of this rom, all of sudden phone reboots. It just keeps on going through the night and next day it keeps rebooting.
    So I wipe partition again and install rom again. Same problems, except I noticed a small difference. At first it was rebooting when plugged in and charging. But now when on battery, it shuts off and I have to power it on via power button. Other then this everything is fine.

    • Al Magic says:

      Little update, on battery its doing both like for example it will reboot sometimes and sometimes it will just shut down. But the shutting down is rare. I get reboots about every 20 minutes, but I think sometimes it stays on longer then 20 mins and then reboots.
      I should also mention that when I got the phone with the factory android 2, I also installed these 2 things:
      3VOMETROPCSMMSFIX2.08.651.2_signed
      and
      aosp3dfix_signed
      these 2 files were to get the mms working. But I haven’t ran these after the MikVirgin rom.
      Is there maybe something else I should do besides wipe partitions, cache, and dalvik?
      btw 3d camera works.

      • Al Magic says:

        I started writing stuff down. On battery last night I get fallowing reboots.
        11:36pm 11:59pm 12:14am 1:14am 1:45am
        At this point I plug in charger. So far it hasn’t rebooted from last night since 1:45am. So far its almost made 12 hours without a single reboot on charger.

        • Al Magic says:

          Ok here is exactly what’s going on.
          If the screen is off, phone will reboot randomly on its own.
          If I go to display settings and set “sleep never turn off” I have been going on for 10 hours without a single reboot.
          So for some reason when phone is in sleep mode it starts rebooting.

  19. Peter Her says:

    Hi all I love this ROM and it works great, however I am not able to tether now that I am running this ROM. can any one help me? All of the tablets recognize my phone and remember it, but the device never connects. Please Help, I really need to tether.

    • charles says:

      change name to … generic device ics
      and check router fix and mms clamping and you should be good to go

    • charles says:

      also check your access control.. you will have to enable it if you are not using a wep key or any form of security encryption .. and then when u enable accexx control, u enable each device ….

      • David M. says:

        I have changed the name and checked those boxes,and I still can’t tether, and I have found out that my Superuser has stoped, can you please help me to get my superuser permission again. thank you for your help.

  22. Spence South says:

    I downloaded this ROM and think it is completely awesome except for one little problem… I can’t get access to the ##debug# functions in the dialer. Is anyone else having this problem?

  23. Andria says:

    Hi,
    I installed this ROM and I love, love, love it….then, I started messing with LeeDroid Tweaks…every since, I started getting “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped” every 15 seconds non-stop. I have NO earthly idea how I can get rid of this. I tried running 4EXT Recovery to fix permissions just in case it might help, but no luck. There is no way to uninstall LeeDroid Tweaks, and I can’t redownload it, as it costs $7.95…ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!

  24. Dustin N says:

    Ok I desperately need ideas now, running mikvirgin on my virgin mobile evo3d, flashed AnthraX-htcleak-rls1.zip with twrp and i think it borked. I wiped and flashed stock jmz rom back few times and now pc still wont recognize phone, also have no wifi, and no 4g. Any ideas are welcome. I can run win linux or mac just not sure where to go fron here. Unlocked, S-ON 1.57.

  25. Samuel Herrera says:

  26. Mauricio says:

    Friend i have a problem mi wifi switch marks. “error” and the wifi never turns on . what can i do??

  27. Luke says:

    okay, so I am trying to install this ROM using 4EXT recovery… with S-ON and HBOOT 1.58. and every time I try it says the zip file is bad. is it because the zip file is ‘signed’?
