Then move the rom onto you phone, install, and use ES File Explorer to change the SKU to 7 and the Region to 1 in the ACC\default.xml file (otherwise VVM force closes). I keep a copy of the apks on my computer now so I can quickly do this to any rom I'm about to flash. Worked for me on ARHD 8.0 and 8.1.
Has anyone tried this successfully on Viper 1.8?

Thanks!
Looks like OP has updated the install instructions, just follow those. Changing SKU and region shouldn't affect anything from my experience. For me this worked on both stock and ElementalX kernel - I wouldn't think kernel would affect this either.

Followed the instructions to the letter. Flashing now. (I also S-Offed while I was waiting on 7zip and N++ to download and install.)

Edit: It worked flawlessly. THANK YOU!

I can confirm this worked for me also.

However I am stuck with the AT&T sign in the status bar and also the data signal never goes away like it does in the international version. Just FYI

Any idea if this will work with the latest ARHD, 10.1? It's 4.4.3, which means ElementX cannot be used.

Edit: It does work, and ElementX is now available for 4.4.3 Sense.

Thats because of carrier specific customizations.

I would like to do the mod and reflash per the instructions but I can't find the different files. Could someone please provide links to these files most current versions?

  • S-Off is not required (S-Off is only required if you want to update your firmware to the latest version)
  • Phone must obviously be unlocked and rooted
  • I don't recommend using v9.1 ROM, the ElementX kernal will not be updated to support 4.4.3 thus sense 6.0 toolbox homescreen swipe commands and motion gestures will not work. I read that 4.4.4 will be out soon, so no one is really investing time in custom kernals to support sense-based ROMs for 4.4.3. You can still updated your firmware to the latest version and run the 8.1 ROM. I recommend searching for the "no red text" firmware version.
  • Keep in mind that your Voicemails won't download when you're connected to a Wifi Network. If anyone has a fix for this please post and PM me so I can update this thread.

1) Right click "Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip" and select 7-Zip "Open Archive"
2) Browse to \Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip\system\priv-app\
3) Drop the following stock AT&T APK files
  • ATT_VVM3.apk (required)
  • HtcContacts.apk (might not be required)
  • HtcDialer.apk (might not be required)
  • Message.apk (might not be required)
  • Phone.apk (might not be required)
4) Browse to \Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip\additions\carriers\att\system\custo mize\ACC\
5) Extract the default.xml file to your desktop
6) Open with Notepad++
7) Scroll to the bottom
8) Set Region value to 1 (USA) <item type="integer" name="region">1</item>
9) Set Product SKU ID to 7 (ATT Model) <item type="integer" name="sku_id">7</item>
10) Save and drop the default.xml file back in \Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip\additions\carriers\att\system\custo mize\ACC\
11) Browse to \Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip\system\customize\ACC\
12) Drop your modified default.xml file here as well \Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip\system\customize\ACC\
13) Copy Android_Revolution_HD-One_M8_8.1.zip to your phone and flash away!
