You can find ::darkside::super::wipe here.

You can find Darkside Cache Wipe here.

Go here to TDJ's thread to find both and read about them.

After following several links (for Ice Cream Sandwich theme) I end up arriving at Vertumus World. On his in the downloads section under themes/ice cream sandwich there is listed:

Ice Cream Sandwich Domination: Latest Version 4.5, Latest Version 2.0.3...

Are any of these themes compatible with Mr.X's rom? If so which would be the one to use? Clicking on either link on brings me to a listing with several different versions of ICS with links named: ICS Domination v4.5... LP9 Universal.zip, LPD_LPF_LPG Universal.zip, etc.. kinda confusing as to which one is needed.

Vertumus World URL: https://sites.google.com/site/vertumusworld/downloads/Themes/Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Domination

I am a Telus user with Mr. X rom.

Thanks in advance for any clarification.

Thanks for your tips/link.

I did have to go from the beginning because I lost "install zip from SD card" from "recovery" menu (vol.up & power). ADfree was only the app work with already installed SU 3.0.7. I then installed 3.0.3.2 binary per your link.

Everything is working fine now. My phone seems to run quicker with ICS.

PS I had the same exact problem as you,so use the 3.0.7 su from the site i gave you,not the one from the thread

Just wondering if anyone else stayed stock ROM and is having the reboot/shutdown hang and need to pull battery.

Thx


EDIT: Alas, TWRP doesn't fix the problem either. The last thing I can try is a factory reset but I'm not game for that yet.
I've got the same issue with my GS2, prior to ICS I was using the Mr X ROM and now when I try to reboot or power off my buttons stay lit up and the only way to reboot is to hold the power button down for 10-15s or pull the battery.

If you aren't rooted then just try to go to recovery and 'wipe cache partition'. It might help.

I'm having trouble editing files in /system. All folder managers aren't able to mount the folder. And if I try to save the edited file it just says error . assuming it is in read only mode. Is there like some special way to do it. Do I need to plug in usb or anything..

Another thing i cannot do is install busybox,both of the busybox installers in Play always fails to install.i think it also has somethign to do with having now write acces to /system

PLS help

so just to be clear before i go ahead. i have the Mr X rom and im rooted.

do i need to go back to original state before upgrading to ICS ? or can i go ahead and update from this custom rom ?

is rooting available with ICS ? i believe so from last page but just wanna be sure. thanks !

also, Kies is garbage, i can't install it on my old pc and it's not working on my wife's laptop after a re-format while it worked before. WTF !!!

You'll need to be stock rom before upgrading to stock ICS. Since your already running a custom rom, you could always flash a custom ICS rom too. Yes, ICS can be rooted.

Probably one of the Darkside roms. You can look through them here. I only see one for Telus if you have that phone.

thank you, i should have checked there as Mr X made a ICS tweak like 3 weeks ago. will update tonight !

after a buttload of research, i managed to install Mr X ICS rom. it took longer than it should but oh well im done now.

i flashed the radio, than i flashed the rom. but you need to flash the rom TWICE or else it will bootloop.

First: Thanks for this guide. it was very helpful.

I have a problem though:
Running sgh-t989d,
android 4.0.3,
baseband version t989dtlle4
kernel 3.0.8 ...
build iml74k. tlle4

Superuser 3.0.7 installed fine. but it won't give me app access, upgrade, or anything useful.

Is my inability to get superuser to work because I have ICS installed? if so, can i just downgrade to gingerbread again? (and once ICS gets itself together reinstall it?)

i'd be happier if there was an ICS superuser - - - even if ICS seems to be slower then gingerbread.

You can root ICS the same way. Use this superuser file instead.

Are you rooted with clockworkmod recovery or you on stock Telus unrooted Gingerbread?

The stock at the link has to be flashed with CWM.

Ok, I was reading through that thread and you will need to flash the radio first and then the rom. Just do a factory reset and wipe everything first.

Apparently the radio isn't included in the rom, so you would need one from that 2nd radio link. It looks like it would be this one. Telus_SGH-T989D_TLLE4_radio.zip

The rom would be this one. Telus_SGH-T989DTLLE4_Stock_Rooted.zip

Download those and put them on your sd card.

Then go to recovery, select wipe data/ factory reset.

Then select wipe cache partition.

Go to advanced, select wipe dalvik cache.

Go back and then go to mounts and storage. format /system, format /cache, format /data

Go back to main menu and install zip from sd card. Install the radio and the rom.

I've read some more through the thread and have seen some people having problems, so (as with most roms) flash at your own risk.

You could also try the Darkside ICS rom for Telus.

Yes you could do that. Are you on stock Gingerbread now? Just rooted? If so, it will probably work anyway. You will just lose root and have to reroot.

lol im getting confused. Well my Gingerbread version is 2.3.5 and i have "Mr. X's Rooted Telus Rom with CIQ removed" installed. But I have a copy of the original telus rom that I got off this forum. I dont mind having to re-root again if I loose it. I only use root for titanium pro and set cpu and maybe some battery tweaks if I can find any good ones.

So if I use odin and flash back that original rom i would just be stock and un rooted correct? I just want the least risky option so dont brick it.

ok awesome! i feel safe doing it that way. One more question, that may have been answered already. Once I get updated to the latest ICS, can I even root yet? I remember on my iphone I had to wait forever for the Devs to creat a jailbreak for my specific ios. Is it the same with android or is it ready to go?

Yes, you can root using the same method as in the OP. Read through the last couple of pages. Some had success using the 3.0.7 superuser. Others had success using a different superuser.

There may even be a stock ICS file for the Telus you can Odin instead of using Kies. I know there is for the SGH-T989 but I'm not sure about the SGH-T989D for the Telus.

I guess this must be a boot loop eh? I found some instructions on how to deal with this. I went into recovery on my phone and wiped user data. And now im re flashing. thats what it said to do anyways so I hope it works.

Glad you got everything worked out. Fortunately, boot loops aren't too hard to get out of with this phone. Most of the time.

I'm not sure what may have caused it in the first place though.

Ya it was a bit strange... Now my phone is completly wiped. I did a titanium backup before I did anything. After I upgrade to ics can I restore that or will it not work?

Yes, just be sure and don't restore system apps or data.

I've rooted my ICS T989D successfully. However no matter which ROM I try to install I lose the Lock Screen and Home Key functionality. Any ideas on why that is? It works when I just root and do nothing else.

Welcome to the forums Conix.

I'm not sure why that would be happening. The only possibility I can think of is you're flashing a rom meant for the T989 instead of the T989D, but I don't really know if that might cause your problem.

Will the original post guide work on a Koodo Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II SGH-T989D running 4.04? (assuming I use the Superuser 3.07 version)

Hi example. From what I've been able to find it should work. I don't know if that superuser file will work with 4.0.4 though. If not, try Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip

How long is it supposed to take during the splash screen after a first boot from flashing a ROM. So far mine has been running for about 6 minutes and I'm beginning to get scared...Please Help =S

What phone do you have and what rom did you flash?

I can't remember exactly but the first boot can take several minutes. If it doesn't boot, go back to recovery and do a factory reset and try to boot again. Did you wipe everything in recovery before flashing?

I just restored everything back to my original backup from CMW and this means that I have to Root my device again right? Thanks so much for your help.

If your nandroid backup wasn't rooted, yes you will probably have to root again.

I must be doing something wrong...I restored back to original state right before my root, re-rooted, and flashed this ROM: |ROM|Jedi Mind Trick|V7| 8|22 - xda-developers I did exactly what it told me to do and I still get past the first splash screen but then on the second custom splash screen it never ends! I am not getting a boot loop either, it just gets stuck on the second splash loading screen. Help! =S
