I would also recommend flashing recovery yourself using fastboot:
fastboot flash recovery <name of recovery>.img
fastboot erase cache
making sure you get the correct TWRP for you phone model.
Yeah I had found a 126.96.36.199 for Sprint that I flashed manually before, and that worked fine as far as starting the recovery up and everything. But, it couldn't install ViperOne correctly, and so ViperOne has an option in the Aroma installer to install a recovery, and since I had never found a 188.8.131.52 file to manually flash, but was on 184.108.40.206 I never even thought that it may not be a recovery built for my phone and it messed everything up.
That's the last time I'm gonna let anything install stuff for me, I always prefer the manual way. I suggest the auto flashers and installers to people like my mom who only really wants root for a certain few features, but I'm usually a manual guy.
Luckily, the RUU worked and I was able to get ViperOne installed on 220.127.116.11.... Sad thing is that's the same recovery I was running before this entire fiasco haha. What a night for me.
