I followed the instructions found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2733523 which required me to flash the firmware from what I had back to an HTC version (after this step I got the HTC logo upon restart instead of the google logo) Flashing this firmware must set the partition sizes to the appropriate values because after this I was able to install the Viper ROM without issue.


Hey guys

I had this same issue and here is what i did.
Boot into CWM
wipe as usual
->Mounts and Storage->format system ->format Data ->Format Cache
