    i have an htc evo 3d with

    android 2.3.4,
    sense 3.0,
    and infected synergy rom 3dvo

    Ive had this rom for quite sometime now and want to try something different, i want to try an ICS mod, but im unsure since i have gingerbread if i can just replace it with an ice cream sandwich mod. or do i have to update to ics? i cant figure out how to update to ics. im getting sdk tools now and downloaded d3rprom-ics-r250. is there a better rom someone would suggest? i know how to flash and root but how do i go about putting an ics rom on if i dont have ics?? or does it not matter?

    D3rp rom is amazing, good choice. Just flash it like you would any other ROM. Not entirely sure it'll work but it wouldn't hurt to try - You can always go back in to your recovery and flash back to the old ROM.

    I've never had synergy, does it have leedroid tweaks? If not you may have to flash an ics

    Forgot to add If you choose to flash ics, I highly recommend d3rp or sosm (swagged out stock), also just flash ics like you would any other rom

    how do i flash ics? where do i get it? i went to install d3rp rom and it says

    E:cant open /tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (bad)

    btw i didnt factory data reset. i will but i wanted to see if d3rp would work without. So.. if i flash ics will it be compatible with my synergy or will d3rp work once i flash ics? where do i get it?


    EDIT: downloading your swagged out stock to see if that works. i think i need this ics though

    I'm using Virgin's version of the 3D, that came with ICS as the stock android, and I am able to flash to Gingerbread roms with no issues at all. I'd assume it'd work the same the other way around. Are you S-Off?

    No I'm s on, which recovery are you using? You'll also need to refer to Evo v 4g ics roms rather than Evo 3d ics roms. You don't need stock ICS to flash an ics rom either. If I unroot I would be on gb. Also when you flash any rom not required but highly recommended to wipe everything except sd card.

    This is true but if you are gb not all ics roms will work. You couldn't flash stock Ics with ics build if you are gb. Well apparently you can dragonslayer! You're one of the lucky ones! :p

    I can't tell you how many times I hear that since I've never had not one issue flashing any ics with s on and 1.5 lol

    I am s-off and I still couldn't flash the stock ICS rom until I updated my phone. Have you tried the actual stock rom? I'd be curious!

    Yeah I have and flashed back to sosm 15 minutes later, way too bland for me

    Plus I do not like sense anyway, flashed just to see how it was. If it's not senseless with the true ics feel I'm not flashing it :)
