We are pleased to announce the first release of Virtuous Primo, this is based on the leaked 1.56.401.11 release RUU. We would like to give special thanks to Football for the RUU.

This build currently falls as an X-Series release, how ever it is suitable for use as a daily driver if you can live with a few bugs. We hope to have ROM feature complete as soon possible. Check bellow for a full list of what is working and what is not.

Primo is the result of a collaborative, team effort by the following developers:Working
  • HW Acceleration
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • Mobile Data, SMS, MMS & Voice Calls
  • GPS
  • Sensors (Auto Brightness is a bit iffy)
  • Audio
  • USB Storgage (No 3rd Party App Required)
  • FM Radio
  • More....
Not Working
  • Camera
  • WiFi Hotspot
  • USB Tethering
  • You tell us
Screenshots




Features

  • Based on the Primo ROM (1.56.401.11).
  • Fully Deodexed
  • Ported for almost full functionality on all of supported devices
  • Heavily optimized for fluid performance and usability.
  • Overclocked kernels with numerous additional kernel modules.
  • Built-in screen state frequency scaling (1.1Ghz-307MHz/ondemand screen-on, 768Mhz-307Mhz/conservative screen-off), via custom built virtuous_oc C daemon.
  • Market-sourced applications (Gmail, Maps, Voice, etc) automatically installed on first boot into /data/app for easy removal.
  • Bloatware and unnecessary applications removed.
Supported Devices
  • Desire HD
  • Desire Z
  • Desire S
  • Incredible 2
  • Incredible S
  • Inspire 4G
  • myTouch 4G
Important Notes

  • You must complete a full wipe prior to installing this ROM the first time. We also recommend wiping between upgrades, but you are welcome to try upgrading without a wipe. However, no support will be provided if you file a bug without having wiped prior to submission.
Bugs and Errors

To ease the process of reporting bugs to the team, we made a public bugtracker where you can report any bugs you found. Please make sure you read all the existing entries there to avoid doubling the errors.

The bugtracker is located here (coming soon).

I'm moving along with Virtuous Team here. Hopefully RootzWiki will never turn in a noob cesspool like XDA. I'm happy that this rom is released, I'm going to flash it immediately. :)

Flashed it and been trying it out for about 2 hours on my desire z and there are a 2 things i noticed:
* The menu button doesn't work in the homescreens, but it does work in all the applications.
* When the phone is turned off and you turn it on, it's really laggy for about 2/3 sec. It only happens when the phone is locked for more then a few minutes.

Other then that it's pretty much the fastest sence rom i've ever used! A major advantage of this rom above other 4.0a ports is the working keyboard backlights and the functioning FN and sym keys!
I'm gonna try it as my DD and will report if there are some major issues!

Menu button is htc's fault.
Haven't noticed lag myself but will keep an eye out

Edit: friend stream doesn't work. Facebook works, but under accounts when i press facebook nothing happens. Also if there is a bug site i can post there as well.

2 Edit: Had 1 reboot while the phone was idle, shazaam doesn't seem to work, wish for more than 5 screens

Earlier I thought I wanted a stock ICS on my Desire Z not to have lags or so, even being able to sacrifice Sense.
Well, with the launch of the One Series, RUU's and ROM's help a lot in this development.

This ROM gives a beautiful example, a glance of what is to be expected with Sense 4.0 and ICS.
Though, I still say no ROM without a working camera can be my DD. (hey, no offence or complaining about the camera development... I know exactly how it is)

Good work VirtuousTeam! ...AGAIN... or should I say AS ALWAYS? :D

Edit: after about 12 hours playing around it is VEEEEEEEEEERY NICE!

I actually like the new search key function. I never used it to search anyway.

P.s. leave it to virtuous to make me sign into so many sites! Yall are hard to keep track of sometimes.

P.p.s.
I cant find the 'twitter for htc' anywhere and i just noticed the normal quote sign on the keyboard doesnt work... Or the question mark.... Hopefully my keyboard didnt just break

I did use search, especially on when on the mainscreen. But I don't mind.
Confirm Twitter for HTC is gone.

Also, (I know this is not a bugtracker), when longpressing on a contact the options menü does come up but fades off in about 2-3 seconds. You hardly can choose an option. (I donno if this is HTC Sense's bug, anyway)

First things first, where is the bugtracker? I can't seem to find it..

I like it, it has more working stuff over the other 4.0A roms, but for some reason it feels slightly slower than the other ROMs. This might need some optimization, but I prefer Virtuous over anyone else, because well, Virtuous. So please point me to the bugtracker, I will submit my bugs there and then I will be waiting for releases.

Thanks virtuous! :D

Few people coming that all primo roms are slow since we all started using the latest base. All our usual optimisations have been applied.
The bug tracker will be live shortly.
