You may remember the Incredible 2 being one of the HTC devices that was officially slated to receive Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.1). An XDA user named nitsuj17 posted a ROM “allegedly” based on a leaked RUU from HTC. With the Incredible 2 ICS release to “be determined by the end of August” this leak seems to fall into the HTC timeline pretty well.

The ROM which layers Sense 3.6 over a pretty bland HTC style Android 4.0 uses a software build number of 7.01.605.01Though this is a pretty bland ROM it does come with some goodies such as:

  • rooted
  • busybox
  • kernel repacked for ext4 vs ext3
  • kernel repacked to remove new htc /lib partition for use on all hboots
  • remove htc linkify crap (app associations as a result of apple lawsuit)
  • removed a lot of the htc log/testing utilities that are present (theyre neat to play with sorta, but the avg user would get annoyed by their notifications always being on)
  • moved some stuff to /data because older hboots dont support /lib and /lib needs to be back in /system/ (which didnt have the room for it all)
The ROM developer as of now is telling users not to ask for the non tweaked RUU. If you want to grab this incredibly overdue update for this still popular device just head on over here to XDA and follow the instructions.
