Unlock your bootloader via HTCDev and install a custom recovery.
Download the ROM and place it on your virtual SD card.
Do a nandroid backup!
Extract boot.img from ROM zip and flash it using ‘fastboot flash boot boot.img’.
Use 'fastboot erase cache' to avoid boot issues.
Go into recovery and install the ROM.
Please choose fullwipe if you are asked, highly recommended if you go from one rom from another rom.
Reboot the device and enjoy!
Q: How do I install the rom?!
A: Installation instructions are in thr 5th posts at the bottom.
Q: Whats the md5 sum thing?
A: It ensures, that the rom is downloaded correctly and completly to avoid weird issues when installing/using the rom. Google for "md5 sum checker" and you should find what you need.
Q: My phone stucks on HTC splash screen
A: "fastboot erase cache" in fastboot and flash the boot.img or use the boot.img flasher provided here.
Q: Whats the boot.img. Why we need to flash it?
A: The boot.img is the kernel and have to be flashed if you want your rom running well. HTC Dev Unlock doesnt allow to install the kernel directly when installing the rom in recovery, thats why you need to install in manually.
Q: I found a theme or mod, will it work on this rom?
A: It's NOT recommended to use mod/themes that dont clearly state, that they are compatible with our rom. Thems/Mods always use framework files which will brake mods/stuff in our rom.
Q: My question is not listed here, what to do?
A: Ensure you used the xda search, google and your brain before asking a question in the thread. If you cant find an answer yourself we will answer your question for sure! (-:
Q: Whats that cm statusbar brightness mod?
Q: Why does my swype2unlock doesn work?
A: Seems you mix up sweep2wake from shows bricked kernel with swype2unlock
sweep2wake is kernel related and makes it possibel to turn screen off and on by swyping your finger from back to menu key.
swype2unlock isnt a kernel feature. it makes it possible to unlock your lockscreen intead of moving the ring by sliding your finger from back to menu button and NOT to wake your device and put int into sleep.
Q: Volume wake isnt working after some time when the device is in deep sleep.
A: This is a kernel issue, no way I can fix it in the rom.
Q: I need someone repackaging a kernel
A: Kernels dont need to be repacked for our rom. We dont have ramdisk tweaks. So you are able to flash the kenrel straight from the kernel devs thread.
Q: What are the correct sizes for the App drawer and notfication pulldown background?
A: Try 720x1280.
Q: What are the correct sizes for custom carrier logo?
A: Try 100x100
Q: Will there be CRT On/OFF support in the next release?
A: NOT possible, because HTC changes some required code in their libs, that makes it impossible.
Q: Several HTC Widgets are missing - can't add them to my homescreen.
The aim of this post is to answer the common questions related to VIPER X JB
This is catered to the ever present, NEW BORN NOOB to the SEASONED SERIAL FLASHER
PS: I am not going to explain how to setup ADB and where to find HTC Sync drivers, there are TONS of threads and if you're really lazy, just GOOGLE IT!!!!!
Without further a doozie, lets get the FAQ on with things
Q: Sweep to Wake not working.
A: No custom (htc source)kernel for that yet.
Q: Missing C in Clock/Weatherwidget
A: Known issue.. fixed in 3.3.3OTA
Q: After installing OTA i cant go into recovery.
A: Remove OTA.zipp from SD sd/download/
Q: Changing Fonts not working
A: Select mount system as read/write in Tweaks
Q: Lag in Appdrawer
A: Disable transparency
Q: OTA doesn't flash in Recovery
A: Try to use recommended TWRP recovery
Q: Can I flash Viper X JB on my HOX
A: YES, provided you have a HOX with at least HBOOT 1.31 (1.36/1.39 RECOMMENDED)
Q: How do I get HBOOT 1.31/1.36/1.39?
A: HBOOT 1.31/1.36/1.39 are UNFORTUNATELY CID dependant!!!!
Q: CID you SAY?? What BLASPHEMY is this you speak OF????
A: It is your Customer ID, this is based on where you purchased your HOX (VodaFone, Car Warehouse, Crack Dealer, ETC ETC)
They are not universal and are not supplied by your local hook up and there is nothing Team Venom can do to change that.
Q: My CID is among the privileged few what now???
A: Check THIS thread for the safest and easiest way to upgrade your HBOOT to ViperX JB compatiblity.
Once on the needed HBOOT, you may flash ViperX JB and ENJOY a REAL CUSTOM ROM
Q: I used OMG SUPER MOD zip on ICS Viper, will it work on JB Viper.
A: NO, unless your developer has updated the MOD/APP for 3.14.401.31 base it wont work.
ViperX also has an extensively modified framework-res.apk and any mods that modify this apk WILL break VenomTweaks.
Q: My battery drains fast/look my battery stats
A: If you want to discuss batterystats/usage (on custom kernels in the future) Go to Goku80,s thread
NB: I will update this FAQ as time permits will more info related to questions regarding ViperX JB and ViperX ICS, this is as much as I am able to do tonight.
This is the custom Kernel Flasher for the ViperX Rom.
