NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich Beta9

Cool [1.Jan.2012] (Android 4.0.3) (AOSP ICS ROM for HD2) NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich Beta9

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).
  • Credits: tytung, texasice, ankuch, rapmv78, the CM and Evervolv teams, etc.
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.
