    I have found the solution to the connectify wifi problem, apparently not all phone support wifi when its in ad-hoc mode so for those with stock ROMs or ICS just change the connectify sharing option to wifi encrypted (WPA2) and you phone will detect the wifi!

    This ICS is just the bomb..its cool and fast. Everything works, the only problem I have is that it doesn’t connect to connectify wifi but other AP wifi connects fine. I know stock ROMs have this issue with connectify but I have never seen a custom ROM with it. Hope this will be solved coz I can’t post on XDA yet with no privelleges.

    I was told my Desire Z was rooted and it goes into ClockworkMod when I boot it up as you indicate above. I can then sellect Recovery but then a circle arrown appears an ! and nothing happens after that. Any idea what is wrong? Maybe its not rooted or Clockworkmod recovery is not installed? How can I check?

      Yes, you have to download it from the page linked at the page we have linked to. I know that’s a little bit stupid, but in order to get you to install the latest and most updated version, we have to link it to original page, where updates will be posted regularly and they may link to another site for download for various reasons. Anyway, cut the crap, just download it from the final page that allows you to download and return back to flash it using the above guide.

    How do people that don’t want to jailbreak get a legit update to Ice Cream Sandwich? I go to system updates but it says nothing is available? Should I go to a website on the smart phone and download it?

      There won’t be an official Ice Cream Sandwich update to HTC G2 and Desire Z, so you won’t get it without rooting your phone first. Actually, clockworkmod recovery is what you need on your G2/Desire Z to flash the Android 4.0 rom from above.

    Ok, lost patience for waiting, rebooted phone in to recovery mode using adb command from my PC and selected “wipe data/factory reset” hoping it will get back to my stock htc desire z rom but it didn’t. It rebooted to ISC again but this time worked, passed welcome screen and now seems to work. THANKS :)

    Hi, welcome screen “the flying teils” are looking awsome, but my phone is not going any further :( been waiting for 30 min – still welcome screen… after reboot, still the same. Any idea? Please help

      Hey, reboot to recovery and do ‘factory reset’ and ‘wipe cache partition’ and then reboot the device.

      • Makowa

        Thanks!! Its working now!!! :)

        • Dude01040

          I’m getting the same error you did “staying on the flying tiles”. Did the factory reset and wipe cache partition work for you? not seeing much difference here.

          • Dude01040

            Nvm, passed through the tiles right after i posted that. sry

    Thanks, tasting ICS on my G2 and it is DELICIOUS!
    other than that: can you please add something like “you must use track ball to select in clockword recovery”? I stuck there for 15 minutes.
