NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich Beta8

Cool [28.Dec.2011] (Android 4.0.2) (AOSP ICS ROM for HD2) NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich Beta8

NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich is a HD2 ROM based on Nexus One's AOSP ICS ROM which is compiled from the source code.

  • Include tytung's ICS kernel beta 8.
  • Include tytung's ICS ramdisk (initrd.gz).
  • Include the required proprietary binaries files and the HD2-specific files (they are not in AOSP ICS) from my AOSP GB ROM (i.e. NexusHD2-Gingerbread).
  • Please give credits to texasice (for N1 Android 4.0.1 ROM), ankuch (for EGL fix v6.1 and software video codec), rapmv78 (for newer EGL fix) and me (for Android 4.0.2 ROM, the kernel and other fixes) respectively if you reuse any of our works. Thanks. 
You can find the SD version contributed by ankuch.


  • Please use at least 185MB system partition and at least 2MB cache partition.
    • Please refer to ksubedi's HD2 NAND Toolkit and/or mskip's guide.
    • Cache partition (/dev/block/mtdblock4) is only used by CWM.
    • Cache partition size is not important because the data partition (/dev/block/mtdblock5) is used as the cache space when running Android.
    • If your HD2 has bad NAND blocks, you may need larger partitions.
  • Wipe
    • Wipe Data/Factory Reset while doing a fresh install.
    • Advanced -> Wipe Dalvik Cache while upgrading and wanting to retain data.
