My m7 is rooted and has the bootloader unlocked already. But it's still S-On and running hboot version 1.57. I'm worried that flashing the latest ViperOne ROM that has hboot version 1.54 will brick it. So I'm wondering if it is needed for my m7 to be s-off before i can flash the ROM. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Rom's don't have a hboot
all that's important is you have TWRP Recovery v2.6.3.3 or up and your on a M7_u or M7_UL

S-off is always good but your already hboot 1.57 so it might be a challenge

I'm using CWM v6.0.4.6, but I suppose as long as I have a recovery flashed I should be alright right? And yes I'm on m7_UL. Thanks a lot for your reply!

Okay I've flashed Twrp v2.7.1.0. Now all I do is to flash the ROM itself right?

You can flash it. But as people have said twrp 2.6.3.3 is the best version to use. You can try the latest. If Rom won't boot flash the above recovery version
