Hey everyone, welcome to viperMOD for the EVO, Incredible, Nexus One, Desire GSM, Thunderbolt, Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, Desire HD, and Inspire 4G. Many people are having great success with this mod and I hope you enjoy my work

I would like to turn this into an app! If someone would like to help out that has Java knowledge, please contact me!


What does this do?
Kernel developers make their kernels to be "universal". By universal, they want the kernel to work on as many phones as possible so they may only mildly undervolt. However, some phones can handle a more aggressive undervolt. Some can't. viperMOD allows you to undervolt to your choosing for better battery life or allow you to overvolt to make your phone more stable.


How do I run this?
Once you flash the .zip go into your Terminal app (I use Android Terminal Emulator set to 10pt font) and type:

su
vipermod


I really only use Terminal for my mod and there is something really cool you can do with Android Terminal Emulator (and maybe others). Menu > Preferences > Initial Command > Press Enter and type su > Press Enter again and type vipermod

Every time you start Terminal now, it will open right into viperMOD. You can quickly exit by pressing Enter if you need to use Terminal for something else


UPDATE 6/14
  • viperMOD v3 beta RC2.4 is live!
  • Fixed some coding that was giving errors on certain ROMs and phones. Everyone please update to this!
  • Please see the updated FAQ and changelog for more information!

UPDATE 5/31
  • viperMOD v3 beta RC2.3 is live!
  • MUCH better support for NS/NS4G Netarchy kernels and other enhancements!

UPDATE 5/29

  • Initial support for Desire HD/Inspire 4G and more!
  • Please see the updated FAQ and changelog for more information!

I have only tested it on Tiamat. In theory, it should work on SZ. Give it a shot and let me know. Just flash the reset .zip if something goes wrong. I would recommend trying the -25mV .zip and see if your phone boots and is stable. If it is, then try the -50mV and continue from there. Make sense?

Why don't you think it worked? Did you run the code before and after you flashed and compare results?

I know this may sound stupid or whatever BUT have you had any issues with your EVO since applying this zip? For example things like random reboots, the screen freezing up or just weird crap?
