I notice that ROM teams are boasting their newest versions in the Verizon ROMs forum and it's seriously misleading to the Verizon users. I get that more understanding users know it won't work fully on Verizon until we get an updated firmware, but for the sake of keeping things relevant, unless the ROM version is definite to work on Verizon, don't update the topics or post about it. That is what the main HTC one m8 forums are for.

I remember someone making a thread a whole back about some of the general ROMs outside of the Verizon section are confirmed to work on our phones. Just need to flash and try your luck. It doesn't seem to be a big deal for me, if it's not fully compatible, just flash back. No need to limit our options.

Here's the thing -- the latest ViperOne ROM (both 2.0 and 2.0.1) worked on my phone. Yes there's a little longer boot time, but that's okay in my book to get to Android 4.4.3 and a newer, quicker version of ViperOne ROM. I say, let the devs release them in the VZW forum and we can try if we want to. If people are worried then even rooting their phone is a bad idea. We can always flash back to a previous version.

I second that I will deal with a longer boot time to have a smoother operating rom until verizon finally updates firmware, as I"am on viperone 2.0 and everything seems to work good just a long boot time but I accept that to get the update now.

The point I was making is, they still don't have 4.4.3, they are based, but we don't have the firmware yet. I get what you are saying though, thanks for the feedback

Well I'm with you on this one. Specifically the viper ROM, could have made it a bit more apparent on the download page and not in the fine print saying "if you have verizon you cant get this rom period"

But it sounds like you CAN get the Viper ROM, you just have to deal with long boot times... Or stick with their version based on 4.4.2.

It's really a moot point, I think, because it takes 15-20 minutes to switch to ART. Had I known how long it would take, I would have stuck with Dalvik. I had 281 apps to update and it went on forever. Stupid me did it with the battery at 2%. Plugged in of course, but I didn't get any charging indication, so I wasn't sure. (It was, in fact, charging.)

But beyond that, with any ROM, you're taking a risk. With some, you're accepting compromises. But that's why we do what we do, isn't it? To learn? To experiment? To have fun? To say, "This is why I didn't buy an iPhone"? I'm a conservative flasher now. I just run CleanROM and update it once a month. That's good for me. Scott does good work, and I don't need anything as flashy as Viper. Scott's not porting 4.4.3, he's sticking with 4.4.2 until 4.4.3 is official (maybe until the boot time bug is fixed, I dunno really).

In any case, I don't think anything's irrelevant about ROM posts where the ROM takes a few extra seconds (minutes?) to boot up. Then again, not my call...
