I've tried to use Sunshine from Stock ROM with the ElementalX kernel, InsertCoin and ViperOne which all failed.
ARHD v11.1 was the one ROM on which Sunshine worked.

I had the same problem and they said use a close to stock rom. To finally get sunshine to work I pushed a stock RUU and then ran sunshine and it worked for me. Now It was a biach because I by no means am a smart guy and had ot work with it, but, with all the time I've spent reading on this site and asking stupid questions I was able to do this myself. Do some reading and do a stock flash and then try sunshine. At worse you just have to unlock it again. Good luck.

It's well known that you have to use a stock (or a very close to stock) rom. Viper is highly modified so indeed that it doesn't work !

This implies for everyone

I believe it was OMJ's thread in the sprint folder. I also went to the older ones and flashed the one that was the oldest. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2729173

Once I did that I was able to check and see if sunshine would work and it said it would then ran sunshine, flashed the updated firmware and that's where I am now.
Good luck
