...presents you viperX rom!

If you didn't try this ROM yet, you will regret it! It's the most featured and most innovative Sense ROM for the HTC One X.
Some user comments:


I have been pretty silent on the the 'ROM Scene' as of late, but I feel obligated to say that this ROM is BAD ASS!!!


If you are a doubter or have been faithful to any other chefs ROMs...

...This is the ROM that is worth jumping ship and worth giving a test drive. Since I flashed, I have not had a desire to flash back or the desire to flash another ROM!


The latest 4.1.0 version has been perfect to me and beyonds my expectations! Before ur rom I have tried ARHD LEEDROID and many other local roms, none has given me the “wow, it's amazing, how he did it” feelings.


But I told my self to read a little here in ONE X Section to see how the development and theming are going for this new device...

And I saw this Thread and I have to say one thing:

That is what I call REAL DEVELOPMENT...

Not just taking a stock rom and add/remove some things....

These guys here have made your life really easy and beautiful...

These guys Rock...

It's one the best development Thread in all xda...


WOW best rom I have ever had on any of my many devices!!


Sorry I don't have anything more constructive to say but I felt that I better say something.



the tweaks are unique, u will never find that on any other HOX Rom out there


You my friend have outdone yourself. I don't need nothing more. This Rom is amazing.


This rom takes customization to a different level! I am very much impressed!


Really big thanks to you guys, you all really push the HOX custom ROM to a whole new level. It shouldn't be just one step, but should be few steps ahead. Never imagine you can customize Sense in such a new way

  1. Unlock your bootloader via HTCDev and install a custom recovery.
  2. Download the ROM and place it on your virtual SD card.
  3. Do a nandroid backup!
  4. Extract boot.img from ROM zip and flash it using ‘fastboot flash boot boot.img’.
  5. Use 'fastboot erase cache' to avoid boot issues.
  6. Go into recovery and install the ROM.
  7. Please choose fullwipe if you are asked, highl recommended if you rom from another rom.
  8. 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 brighntess mod?


Q: Whats the Ultra/smooth rosie?

A: Your HTC Widgets got some kind of 3D effect which may make your Rosie laggy. You can see that 3D effect clearly on the HTC 4x4 Weather widget.

  • Smooth: Flattens all widgets besides the one you start scrolling
  • Ultra: Flattens all widgets for best performance

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: The cube effect isn't working on the app drawer

A: The cube effect just appears when you swype from the all over the frequent to the download tab.

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.

A: Settings->apps->all apps: choose htc sense and clear data.
