HTC Endeavor RUU leaked, breakthrough for custom ICS ROMs?

For years custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod have been saviors for us users. They have helped us receive the latest version of our beloved OS long before the manufacturers push it out (and in many cases, even when they didn’t). Yet the move from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich has proved to be extremely frustrating – primarily because of the degree of changes made to the source code.

As an HTC user, I’ve been keeping a keen eye on the progress of the ROMs available on XDA for quite some time. Unfortunately, nobody has been able to get together even a beta-worthy version, with the main problem proving to be the camera. The reason is that the development teams have no access to the required drivers, which usually is a problem solved using a ROM available for another device.

With no HTC phone on ICS yet, all their efforts have so far proved futile. But yesterday, an RUU for the HTC Endeavor was leaked to XDA-Developers, which could help solve the problem the devs have been facing.

It’ll take a lot of work, though. Especially considering the HTC Endeavor’s shift to a quadcore Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and 720p resolution, posing as a set of obstacles.

Anyone out there on a decently functional custom ROM for HTC? Do point us in the right direction, please, I’m so tired of waiting!

    I’ve not found an ICS ROM but liq 3.2 has an ICS launcher built in the liquid settings. Go launcher has a good version even launcher pro and ADW have decent versions to get the full appearance. Liq is cyamod based but much more fluent and no GPS issues.

    Virtuous Quattro is a multi device ICS ROM. I’ve been running it on my Desire S for a while now. It’s very good. Camera isn’t 100%, but it’s otherwise a good daily driver

  • Greg Gerhardt

    The HD2 is another HTC with a working camera in an ICS port (NexusHD2 ROM).
