Are you sure it doesn't install the driver?
What player do you use? because HTC music player needs some modification to make it works with Viper

You better S-OFF your device

i use google music as my player.
and no it doesnt install the driver, though i dont really know where to look but everytime i restart my phone and go back into viper it keeps telling me that it needs to install the driver.

I'd rather not go through s-off when it can be easier to just install a kernel that allows for s-off like functionality without mucking with the bootloader with rumrunner and whatnot. it's just my preference.

Do you have busybox installed? If not you'll need that and I personally recommend and app called busybox on rails. Also try uninstalling the app. Then take the apk, put it in the system/app folder. Change permissions and restart. After that go to the app drawer and select Viper. You must have some internet connection. Viper will ask to update and reply yes and answer the other questions it ask. Then restart again. And it should be working. Also I'm sure you know that it requires root. Hope this helps.

installed busybox via update.zip due to being s-on before new kernel.
i use this busybox: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ricson.busybox
I'll see about installing it via /system/app.

EDIT: ok wierd. it didnt stay in /system/app. i think the kernel just stops the phone from rebooting if you mess with the system partition...

As I said earlier in the kernel thread, to disable system write protection, you need to change it in the kernel. I'll make one for zara_UL and maybe also for zara_CL
