How to Install Leaked Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware 3.11.605.1 on HTC Rezound

- Similarly do “wipe cache partition” and “wipe dalvik cache” (from advanced menu).
- Now select “install zip from sdcard” from the main menu, then select “choose zip from sdcard”. Browse to the ROM file on your SD card that you downloaded in step 1.1 and select it.
