Root [ROM LIST] Suitable ROM List 100% Working ROM's Only

If you do not yet have Root on your phone, then go here for a guide.

HTC released a test version of their Sense with Android 4.0 ROM. Most of the ROM's in this list will now be on Android v4.0 or higher. That said, there will still be a few 3.0/3.5 ROM's because the 4.0 are not fully working yet. Let's get started!

- - - LIST - - -

TripNRaver's ASOP ICS - BETA
I used this ROM for about a month. It is VERY good. The problems are that the Camera and Bluetooth do not work. The version that was released on Christmas day is currently pretty buggy, it is the first version of the beta. Therefor Alpha 7.7 is the best so far. This is TRUE ASOP.

Virtuous Inquisition v1.2.0 - BETA
This is also a Android 4.0 ROM but it is based of of Sense. Although the Sense is removed, it can be found in the Camera/Dialer ext. I have used Virtuous ROM's in the past and give them a VERY high rating. 9/10 isn't enough but 10/10 is too much. If it took a test, it would get a 95%.

Android Revolution HD 5.0.2 XE ICS - LINK
This is also a Android v4.0 ROM. It uses the Beats Audio Technology, which is sorta a scam because it is only functional when using the HTC Music player. This one uses Sense 3.5 which is revised for Android 4.0. Android Revolution has been a VERY reliable source for ROM's in the past, and this one will be no exception. If you like Sense with your ROM's, this one is perfect.

RCMix Ice v1.1 - LINK
This is the father of the Android 4.0 ROM's, the very first HTC Sensation ROM came from the RCMix team. This is very good and reliable ROM, but it is a bit slow compared to the rest. Being over 400Mb in size, it is just about the original Sense 3.5 with Android 4.0 ROM that HTC released.

Thanks for checking out the ROM's,
So far I have tried the beast Rom and the energy Rom. Both good beast rom kind of boring and the energy I just flashed. It looks awesome and is fast so far but idk about the battery life seems to be draining very quickly. If you want a ROM with GREAT battery life flash the beast Rom ill be testing others as well.

the batt took about two days to set becuase i didnt full wipe.lol but after that had awsome batt so far so good with energy rom will also try beast rom thanks for the tips. great thread btw..

Forgive me if a dumb question, but what criteria are you using for "fully functional?"

I've been running XboarderMod Cm7/AOSP Hybrid v1.1for a few days now & really like it.

CtDroid, i ran Pyramid for a few days & got CRAZY high scores on CF bench!! Only issue I had, which may have been caused by my "tweaks", was device getting very warm & battery life.
