So, you've downloaded and been blown away by the most advanced ROM on the HTC One M8 - ViperOne M8!!

Well, the fun doesn't end there! Thanks to Team Venom's powerful theme engine, you can change multiple elements of the theme on the fly - a never-before seen feature on any ROM.

Of course as with anything new, there is much confusion how this works. The aim of this thread is to clarify how to change various aspects of the theme, and unleash the full power of the Viper!

There are 2 aspects to themeing on ViperOne M8:
  • The built in theme engine (covering statusbar icons, Sense icons, wallpapers, fonts etc)
  • The full flashable theme, which completely transforms the look of your device


To some degree, the effects of these are independent. So you can change aspects of the built in theme without changing the skin, or change the skin but keep theme elements. Or even keep everything, and just change the Sense icons. The possibilities are endless.

The secret to ViperOne's stunning good looks is a combination of the above, and you can find more information on this over the next 4 posts


Please post any theme questions / issues here rather than on the main ROM thread, let's keep that clean for ROM issues.

Thank you

PLEASE NOTE:
- It is highly recommended you dirty flash the ROM (flash without wipe) between switching themes
- It is highly recommended you change TWRP settings to remove screen timeout, if you want to flash multiple mods at once. Go to Settings > Screen > Uncheck enable screen timeout.


So, you've had a play around with the Venom Hub and seen how many customization options are available. But somehow, it's not quite enough?! Well, that's where the RedVenom theme comes in. This is a full flashable theme that takes the customization to the next level.

As you can see from the screenshots, flashing the theme brings a touch of red to all elements of the UI, including all the system images, phone, keyboard etc.


- Change between 8 different themes on the fly through Settings > Personalise > Themes
- Aroma option for dark headers independent of which theme you're using
- Stock icons throughout

ViperLight NO LONGER AVAILABLE
  • Change between 8 different themes on the fly using settings > personalize > themes
  • Choose between light or dark dialer and keyboard




Directions to do your own ViperLight custom colour:
(requires ViperLight 3.x.x to be flashed first, preferably without extended colours):

1. Download ViperLight Custom 3.0 zip from here, and unzip on your PC.
2. Download HxD hex editor from here
3. In the unzipped file, navigate to \vrtheme\system\framework\com.htc.resources.apk and open the resources.arsc with HxD
4. Using the replace function (ctrl+r) replace 12 34 56 with your chosen hex. Two values should be replaced. Please note, that you need to reverse your number for hex, so 33 B5 E5 (ICS Blue) would become E5 B5 33 when replacing with HxD. Also ensure that you are searching in hex-values, as pictured below.



5. Save the file in HxD (and you can delete the .bak file in the folder), then zip the files back up.
6. Copy to device and flash in recovery. You custom theme will be theme number two.

Please let me know of any issues.


Colour codes:
Green: 6ed294 Orange: ffa63d Blue: 0761b9 Red: 930010 HTC Green: 69b40f Faded Blue: 6BAAC7 Pink: cb2ba4 Purple: 92278f


Just flash the zip through recovery. To revert back, just reflash the ROM without wiping.

Theming is very much a team effort, so thanks to all of the following people, whose ideas/inspiration/fixes etc have been used in one way or another in these themes. I'm sure I'm forgetting some people, so let me know if I've left you off!



@j to the 4n, @Turge, @ivicask, @hansbert and @m0narx for the amazing Viper ROM
@rayford85 for his original themes, an inspiration to us all!
@fisha21 for knowing the answer to virtually every theming question I have.
@ViNOK16Bit, @Guich, @Krocko and @Kiray1982 the other venom themers.
@Raymond Ebertt for discussions on the finer points of theming
@Pfaffinator, @AhLot and @lesscro for graphics
@Pneuma1985, @Onepagebook, @ineedone, @Punka-res.apk, and all contributors on the Sense 6 theming thread
Thanks also to the Venom Beta Testers, who are always willing to test out any themes before they are released.

So you've read about the revolutionary theme engine in the ROM thread. But what exactly can you do with it? Basically, it allows you to alter some of the graphical elements on the fly, without needing to flash or even reboot.

Using Venom Tweaks, you can change the appearance of:
  • Statusbar icons
  • EQS icons
  • Battery icons
  • Sense icons
  • Notification shade background
  • App drawer background


These elements are all independent and can be changed to suit your tastes. So, you can use icons from different icon sets to mix and match your own personal theme.

But that's not all. Take a closer look at the screens where you choose statusbar themes and icon sets. You'll notice that each supported statusbar icon can be changed independently. So you like wifi icon from theme A, but battery from theme B? No problem, download both and mix it up as much as you want. You're only limited by what's available in the Hub.

And if there's some icons you want that aren't in the Hub? That's what the Venom kitchen is for.....
Special thanks to:

  • jotha - for the battery Icons


As if the ROM wasn't customisable enough, the ROM devs have also developed the Venom theme kitchen.

Really want some statusbar icons that aren't in the Hub,or got a great idea for a set of Sense icons? Why not make it yourself and share it with others via the Venom Hub?!

We've put some themes in the Hub to get you started, but the aim is to fill it with user generated content.
We've tried to make the tutorial as easy as possible, but if you have any questions, here's the place to ask.

Post your completed themes here, with a screenshot. If the theme looks nice we will add it with credits to the venom hub, so all users can download it from there!

One thing we ask though - ideally you'd be using icons you've created yourself. If you are going to use someone's else icons, please ask them for their permission first.
We all spend a lot of our free time making these, and it's really annoying to see your work ripped off by someone else! I'm sure you'd all agree.

If you used icons from the UOT kitchen, then say so.

Happy theming!
