  5. Sandvold, is there any way we can make the Google Now feature work ?

    I have tried 2 days in a row to make it work. Some say that the lack of space is the main issue.

    Is there any fix? Any solution to this ? Voice search and Google now is one of the best feature lately and it's a pity we can;t use it :(

    Can you please help us with this bug ?

    p.s ( Amazing speed of rom and no slowdowns at all ) :)

    Kind regards

  7. Hi Sandvold, because of the 3g problem I changed your Rom to AOKP Milestone 6 ROM. Everything works now perfectly on ICS 4.04. Thanks and hope to see you again for jelly bean.

    1. Same here. Tried 0.18.1 ("downgraded") also but still had the same problem

      Delete
  9. Wifi and 3G evaluation:
    reception is much better, not as it should be, but on previous rom it was much worse.. i used to have a weak signal standing only 2 meters from my router, and this is now better.

    misc comments:
    - typing in websites is a little better but could use some work. i assume this has something to do with memory/cpu usage, as text messages typ ok.

    the google now function works for me, i think. if i keep pressing the search button, i get a voice search option. so if this is normal, it works.

    i noticed my headphones jack doesnt work. tested with 3.5mm input to my amplifier, and my earphones. phone doesnt move a bit about it, just wont get detected.

    this is it for now. if i stumble upon other issues, u will hear from me.

    regards. Ben

  12. Hello Sandvold and other developers,

    Thank you for the great work you have put into this. I will certainly show my gratitude with a donation.

    I dont know if this is the right place for this post, so bear with me please if it is not.

    I have a very strange error, which I have noticed in this build, but also in the 0.17.1 - I don't know if it was there before;
    Whenever I am typing on my (stock)keyboard a word starting with l(L), I can only type 2 letters, so Love becomes Lo etc. It doesn't matter if the L is capital or not.

    Edit: I just tested the other letters as well, and I noticed a similar problem writing Kg(then block), but here 3 letters are possible with other combinations like Kat.

    This is no matter what program I use to type in (Notepad, mail, browser)

    Have you seen such a problem before? This is driving me nuts.

    Edit: This is not a problem when I use Smart Keyboard Pro, which I prefer. Unfortunately it crashes very regularly in ICS, so I have to fall back to the stock keyboard.

    Thank you in advance for your attention.

  17. Hi, developers of this awesome ROM!

    I have been using your ROM for a long time now, and I'm very satisfied with it. Even though it has some bugs occasionally..:)

    BUT I have one question..
    Is it possible to just upgrade to the latest version without having to format my Desire?

    Regards, Huge Fan

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have a small improvement, which you can add in the next version. An file explorer! I would be glad if this would be add. But otherwise, very good rom! I think the best for the HTC desire! Good work! Keep it up! Ps, you should change the background for the recorder and the flashlight! So it would looks much better ;D I can help you to make good looking pictures!

    1. Why dont u use root explorer? U can find it in the play store.. and it does what its supposed to do, and worth the little money. Otherwise, install android assistant, it has a built in file explorer, but only opens sd card. But it has lot of other goodies too.

  38. Hi, this is a great ROM and many thanks for the hard work.

    For me it seems to work 99% well. The missing 1% is that my HTC Desire now crashes or locks up 2 - 3 times per day. How can I help find what the cause is? Thanks, - Röbu

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi, I have the same problem as Fredrik and Röbu.

    This is my first ROM I installed. It works totally fine with your instructions, except that one thing. It freezes quite often.
    I tried to find out why or when it does it, but I haven't been successful yet. I'd love to continue using this ROM, but it's really difficult with this problem.

    BTW those problems with 3G happened only 2 times in first days and then not anymore and I travel a lot.

    Thank you for this ROM and I wish you good luck in finding the problem.

    1. try this:

      Settings -> Evervolv/Toolbox -> Performance -> Processor -> change the CPU governor from ONDEMAND to SMARTASSV2

      if you reboot your phone, it will change back to ondemand. so you have to reset it after a reboot.

  41. Goodevening.

    after a longer evaluation:
    wifi reception is a little better, however, internet on wifi is perfect without issues, but, on 3G its beeing a pain in the ass.
    it happens frequently, that after a period of not using the phone, internet suddenly drops. browser gives "error connecting to proxy server" if that happens, i have to reboot the phone / turn airplane mode on and off, and all works fine usually. sometimes i just have to reboot. this is an annoying issue, and should be looked after.

    headphones jack does not work, tested with various things, but phone will not move a thing when something is connected. it just wont work at all.

    still the issues from typing in websites text boxes. for usernames/passwords its usually ok. but when answering on say a forum post this goes extremely slow. phone laggs like hell..
    i am active on the htc desire forum, and i usually answered by phone. this is quite impossible now, and i really want this to work better.

    but, apart from this, its still the best ICS for Desire available in my eyes.
    and i am waiting for the next update :)

    greetings!

  42. Great Rom. I have been using these for quite some time now and I know a lot of development has gone into it.

    On this one I have noticed it does get stuck on the boot animation after a restart. Phone runs great from initial install reboots fine the first few times no issues at all. However after a few hours of use if I do a reboot it gets stuck on the boot animation.
    To resolve I have to do a factory setting wipe and then it reboots again. Ive tried wiping caches but factory wipe is the only way.

    I am running stock launcher with int2sd. Ive tried formatting everything before reinstall to solve the issue but to no avail as of yet. Will probably try again tmr repartition my sd and just totally start from scratch to see if I have missed something.

    If anyone has got any ideas let me know

    Anyway keep up the good work!

    regards

    ReplyDelete
  55. Success! Here's what worked for me:

    - Make sure you have adb and phone drivers so you can connect to the phone from computer via "adb shell"
    - Google for Vending-3.8.15.noupdate.norestrictions.apk, download it, rename to Vending.apk, place to sd card root

    - Connect phone to PC via USB
    - Boot into recovery (4EXT, in my case)
    - Mount data, system and sdcard (in 'mounts and storage')

    - run the command line as administrator
    - cd Program Files(x86)/Android/android-sdk/platform-tools/
    - adb shell (try this 'till a differnet prompt apears!)

    - cd /data/data/
    - rm -r com.android.vending
    - rm -r com.android.vending.updater

    - cd /system/app
    - rm Vending.apk
    - rm -r com.android.vending
    - rm -r com.android.vending.updater

    - cd /data/app/
    - rm -r com.android.vending-2.apk or com.android.vending-1.apk


    Settle the correct Play Store app (assuming you placed the downloaded Vending.apk to the root folder of sd card)
    - cp /sdcard/Vending.apk /system/app/

    - Clear Dalvik cache

    - Reboot

    After the first boot, Google Play didn't work on my phone. I installed the app by using ES File Browser again.
    After a reboot again, Google Play Store works fine now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This fix will work until next reboot, because Google Play will update itself as soon as it will be connected.
      Unless devs can find a better fix we will have to do all this after every reboot.

    2. Vending-3.8.15.noupdate.norestrictions.apk do not make an update! See instructions above!

    1. Hey guys. I fully rooted my HTC Desire and installed Sandvold's ICS ROM for Desire, but I faced bootloop error when I restarted my phone. I have read about that bootloop and all about fixing it. I tried to fix that bootloop following this guide. I have installed ADB and phone drivers successfully.So after root I installed patched A2SDX by ADB. Next, I rebooted my phone, then entered to recovery menu and mounted data, system and sdcard (in 'Mounts and storage'). But when I try to cd /data/data in ADB while connected my HTC Desire, the error shows up and I can't access to that folder (/data/data/). One time I randomly entered to /data/data/ by cd command in cmd. So what's the problem? Please help, because I don't get it and I have no ideas how to fix it :/ The main fact is, that I can list directories by ls command, and I see /data/ folder in /data/ folder, but i can't access it. The error is that /sbin/sh: cd : can't cd to data/data/. Btw i can see that folder by Root Explorer

  79. SANDVOLDS LAST POST ON XDA THREAD: [QUOTE]Sorry that I've been totally inactive. Just needed to stop when I got a new job. Had no time, and it seemed the development of JB was going good, so didn't see much point in continuing the ICS work. But it's good to see that ppl are still enjoying it. If anyone want to use this as a base just do whatever you want :)[/QUOTE]

    Be aware that this rom is discontinued. Problems with the play store are known, and workarounds are found in the XDA thread. More roms for the trusty HTC Desire are found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=809328
    I personally recommend Nikez ROM, who is also a part of the Evervolv team. Latest release is on Android 4.2.2 and is very smooth.

  86. I have installed the beta ROM but also found that as soon as I setup my Google account to access the Play store, my HTC Desire will not boot - get the never ending loop. I need to replace the vendor.apk file with Vending-3.8.15.noupdate.norestrictions.apk but after hours of trying different google links to locate this file, I just cannot get a download site that has it. If you follow a found link, the file has either been removed, not found or the site requires registration only then to tell you that it doesn't have the file - Quite frustrating! Does anyone have a copy of the file or know of a site where the download actually works?
