...presents you viperOneS rom!

If you didn't flash the rom will regret it. It's the most featured and most innovative sense rom out here on the HTC One S forums.
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 S 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 HOS 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 HOS 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

With the newly introduced venom theming its really easy to create themes yourself! At the bottom of the post attached is the venom kitchen, other required files and an easy to follow tutorial.

This is our official theming thread:

Feel free to create some themes and provide it for our users in this Thread. If the theme looks nice we will add it with credits to the venom hub, so all users can download it from there!
If you got answers or a theme request you can do it as well in the theming thread.

Happy theming!

Add-on package for Viper One S

This package gives you optional bootanimations, AOSP apps and some Jelleybean apps, which can easily be flashed with comfortable Aroma Installer. We also added removal options, so you don`t need to download the full ROM again, only because you forgot to remove some bloat n the first flash

Q: My data icon is switching from G to H even if I have full speed?!
A: Known issue, can't be fixed in near future

Q: My WiFi is not working correctly?!
A: It is because you did the Android 4.0.4 TMOBILE US update, try to flash the partition patch or you have to live with it

Q: How do I install the Rom?!
A: Installation instructions are in the 5th post at the bottom.

Q: What`s the md5 sum thing?
A: It ensures, that the Rom is downloaded correct and completely 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 has to be flashed if you want your Rom running well. HTC Dev Unlock doesn`t allow to install the kernel directly when installing the Rom in recovery, that`s why you need to install it manually.

Q: I found a theme or mod, will it work on this rom?
A: It's NOT recommended to use mods/themes that don`t clearly state, that they are compatible with our Rom. Themes/Mods always use framework files which will break 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 can`t find an answer yourself we will answer your question for sure! (-:

Q: What`s that CM Status Bar brightness mod?

Q: Why does the CM Status Bar brightness mod not work on my device?
A: Make sure Auto Brightness is NOT activated

Q: Why do I have an empty space in EQS?
A: Just hide NFC in tweaks hide n reorder, our device does not support NFC

Q: Why does show unlock animation not work?
A: It DOES work as long as you`ve been on homescreen before you locked and have the clock widget there.

Q: Why is infinite scrolling sometimes laggy and I even see an empty screen?
A: The implementation is still buggy, but we left it on user request.

Q: What`s 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: The cube effect isn't working on the app drawer
A: The cube effect just appears when you swype from the all tabs over to the frequent to the download tab.

Q: Volume wake isn`t 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: How do I know whether a tweak needs a reboot to work?
A: Usually the white reboot button top right corner will turn white. Just press it and your device or Status bar will reboot and apply the tweak.

Q: I have problems ending a call, problems with lags when making a call, or low volume issues.
A: Some users reported that it`s related to the fine/finest volume tweak. Set it to normal to fix your issue.

Q: I have Dialer or other FC after a mod/Theme/Rom flash?
A: Always fully boot your device first, then boot again in recovery. One S creates some cache issues after flashes, which most of the time are solved when wiping cache in recovery.

Q: I need someone repackaging a kernel
A: Kernels don`t need to be repacked for our Rom. We don`t have ramdisk tweaks. So you are able to flash the kernel straight from the kernel devs thread.

Q: What are the correct sizes for the app drawer and notfication pulldown background?
A: Try 540x960.

Q: What are the correct sizes for custom carrier logo?
A: Try 100x100

Q: Why are there not enough custom options in Status Bar and Sense Theming section?
A: Click on GET MORE first and install your favorite theme packs first .

Q: What`s the Venom Hub?
A: The Hub is the place, where you can download and install new themes, icon or font packs.

Q: I want to apply new custom Status Bar logo?
A: Again - the Hub is the place or make your own and choose it from your SD.

Q: Why do I need the additional addon package?
A: You don`t need iit, but it saves you the hassle to download the full ROM, if you only want to remove bloatware or add useful stuff like new boootanimations, fonts or AOSP apps.

Q: I installed Venom Red Theme on 1rst ROM installation, but I don`t see anything red?
A: You need to activate Skin under personalize, Status Bar and Sense Themes in Tweaks app first.

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.
More information in Post7!

Team Venom - ViperOneS: Google Issue Tracker


  1. Download the Boot.img Flash Script from here
  2. Download the Rom
  3. Extract the Boot.img Flash Script on your PC
  4. Connect your One S to the PC (USB Disk Mode), copy (the ROM) to your HTC One S
  5. Connect your One S via USB and ensure you have HTC Sync installed, you need the drivers to be able to use fastboot
  6. Uncheck fastboot in Settings->Power, then shut down your HTC One S completely (don't reboot, shut it down).
  7. Press and hold volume down, then press power (keep holding volume down!) until your screen shows the hboot menu, navigate to recovery (use volume keys)and press the power button once to jump into recovery mode.
  8. In Recovery choose install zip from sd -> choose zip file and navigate with your volume buttons to the downloaded Rom and hit power and confirm with yes.
  9. Now the Aroma installer should show, if you have the touch recovery installed you can use your screen to navigate through it, otherwise use the volume buttons and confirm with the power button.
  10. IMPORTANT: if you come from another Rom, pls choose FULLWIPE
  11. After you configured it, reboot to your bootloader in fastboot mode
  12. Now go to your extracted Boot.img Flash Script folder:
  13. Depending on your OS of your PC you need to run the file like normal:
  14. Windows: flash-boot-windows.bat
  15. MAC:
  16. Linux:
  17. When the commands were successful, press power again to go back to the hboot
  18. Navigate with your volume button to "Recovery" and reboot or reboot via cmd with "fastboot reboot"
  19. Finally we highly recommend specifically for One S to boot again in recovery and wipe cache. Please do that also, whenever you flash any addons or mods – always boot your device first, then boot again in recovery and wipe cache.
  20. Recommendation - with "Flash Image GUI" from joeykrim you can alternatively flash boot.img on your device, no need to fastboot anymore -

Sign Venom Tweaks documentation
Venom Viper One S Tweaks Documentation - a long guide through the tweaks options

Tweaks for Version 1.0.0

The Tweaks basically enable the user to modify many aspects of the Android and Sense system. Since these are all non-generic things, meaning not authored, tested and verified by HTC, they can and will contain bugs and can and will cause issues on your device. However, we are trying to even out as many of them as possible over time. You are welcome to report any unknown problems to us. Before you report though, go through this document and check if it’s already a known thing. Then we don’t need a report. It is also a good idea to check the FAQ section before reporting.
The Tweaks consist of two Apps. One is the actual tweaking App, which is responsible for executing the tweaks and one is the Venom Hub, which serves the contents. Both are linked up. You can access the Hub from within the Tweaks App. Once you downloaded content in the HUB and pressed install, you can change to the Tweaks App and select your content there for activation.

Since you read and understood the above, you are aware that these modifications will void your warranty and you are the sole responsible person for these changes. We do not accept any responsibility for damage to your device, software and/or personal data stemming from your use of the tweaks app or the HUB and content. We neither accept any claims concerning damage to your private life in consequence of excessive Viper Contact. This is defined as addiction and needs a psychiatrist. We also do not pay lawyers for Divorce Cases resulting from Wife Neglection.

Document Logic:
The Tweaks App has a title bar at the top, its functions in the middle and a Tab-Bar at the bottom.
The title bar has a caption reading the current ROM Name and Version at the left hand side and a square button at the right side. This button is essential. It shows a white circle which is grayed out if you can enable a tweak without a reboot and it turns white as soon as a reboot is required. Watch this button. If you see that you need to do a reboot, it is important to do it right away (before enabling more tweaks) to ensure correct execution of the Tweak. If you don’t, you might find that some tweaks did not apply and you will have to repeat it.
The middle section is white with several compartments separated by Headlines, containing various tweak functions or links to a subpage. A subpage can be another full menu with functions and/or links to a sub-subpage. It can also be a List or a Pop-Up.

The Tab-Bar has 7 Tabs.
We will now go through the seven Tabs sequentially, starting at the most left. For each Tab, the subpages will be titled as they are in the App and follow the main page description.
I now decided to leave the document without screenshots as those would just make the post very massive and up till now there had only been a few people not understanding the tweaks. Please feel free to ask if you do not understand something.
I will use numbering from 1 to 7 for the tabs, letters from a-z for the Tweak Items and letters from a-z for the subpages. So a Tab is 1, a Tweak Item is 1.a, a subpage to that Tweak Item is 1.a.a.

1. Tab: “About”
Shows a link to the XDA Thread instead of the reboot option in the title bar.

Shows links to the main developers and their Profiles, also their donate link.
Shows a link to various Social Sites to stay up to date with Venom.
Shows a link to the “Profiles” Function at the Bottom.

--> Profiles can be saved after you have set up your Venom ROM and can be used to later restore all your tweaks automatically if you happen to reflash your ROM.
--> The Profile will be saved as “1.xml” (for first Profile) to the folder \sdcard\Venom\Profiles

2. Tab: Statusbar
Shows the reboot button at the top right

2.a. Item: “Hide quick Settings
--> The ROM has Quick Settings enabled by default (Pull-Down Menu, Settings Tab). You can disable them here.

2.b. Item: “Hide n Reorder
--> You can hide specific settings and/or change their order of appearance here
Hint: This function will open up a subpage with all QS Items listed, showing an “X” Button at the left and three bars at the right. Click the “X” for disabling, touch and drag the three-bars to move and reorder your settings.

2.c. Item: “Quick-quick Settings
--> You can enable this to make the QS appear automatically, if there is no notifications in the Pulldown. It will then show you the QS as soon as you pull down the Statusbar.

Headline: Statusbar Tweaks

2.d. “Statusbar theme Support” - link to subpage

2.d.a Item: "Theme Pack" - link to Sub-Subpage

You can apply all of them at once by just clicking the reboot-circle at the top right or you can pick single icons only by tapping on any of the icons and then selecting the respective pack on the appearing sub-subpage. These Sub-Subpages will not be numbered as there count differs, depending on how many icons there are in the pack. There basically is one sub-subpage for each icon.
Hint: select the Pack which contains most icons you want to use with the “Theme Pack” link, then pick the single ones you want to have with other icons. If you do it vice-versa, it’s more work

2.e. Item: “Hide specific notification options” - link to subpage

2.f.f. Item: “Static battery color” – is a color picker

2.m.c. Item: “Show Carrier Icon
--> Picking this links you to your picture hub where you can pick a custom carrier logo picture or whatever you like. Size: 100x100.
Hint: this is better done via the Venom HUB app! Goto: Operator Logos there and tap the one you want and it installs directly.

Headline: Second Line

2.m.d. Item: “Carrier Second Label

2.n. Item: “Background Color
--> You can here choose a different color for the color of the Pull-Down Menu.

2.o. Item: “Use Background Image
--> Opens up your favorite picture hub and lets you pick any picture as a background. Be careful though. For it to look good it should have a size of 720x1280 pixels.

Headline: Recent Apps Dialogue

2.p. Item: “Dialogue Style”
--> Let’s you switch between default Sense and Android 4.0 Recent Apps manager.

3. Tab: Sense
Shows the reboot button at the top right

Headline: “Home screen

3a. Item: “Smooth Rosie Tweaks”
--> Opens a Pop-Up where you can choose between normal, super and ultra smooth Rosie. Super flattens all 3D effects out of all widgets when scrolling, except the one you start scrolling with, Ultrasmooth also flattens the one you started scrolling with. This tends to make the Home Screen Experience better and less lagged.

Headline: Tweaks Developer

7.a. Item: “Minfree settings
--> Pops up a window with sliders to adjust the Kill levels for different app types. How to set--> Purely experimental. Check the Web for guides on how to play with it.

Headline: Fixing/Optimizing

--> Runs a command that corrects all file permissions in Android. Can also cause trouble but usually it helps with issues.

7.c. Item: “Zipalign all APK’S
--> Runs the “zipalign” process on all user apk’s. This can be handy as not all App Devs do a zipalign and that makes the APK behave bad on memory. Zipaligning them can make them run better in memory.

Headline: System

7.d. Item: “Mount Sytem r/w
--> Mounts the System with Read and Write permissions for file browsers. This can potentially be dangerous because malware could abuse that but on the other hand, its helpful too if you like messing with your system and malware could also execute this command anyway, since you already run the device as root user.

7.e. Item: “Disable Logcat
--> disables the logcat of the system. Makes it a little faster and use a wee bit less juice but you won’t be able to provide your Dev with a LogCat if you have problems. These logs are incredibly helpful for debugging. So just try it out if it betters anything for you.

Headline: Wipe

7.f. Item: “Wipe Cache
--> As the name suggests, this wipes the cache partition. Saves you a reboot into recovery.

7.g. Item: “Wipe Dalvik Cache
--> See above!

Headline: Fonts

7.h. Item: “Use Custom Font
--> Lets you pick a custom font pack, also downloadable via the hub for example.

Headline: Boot

7.i. Item: “Custom boot animation
--> Lets you pick a custom bootanimation. Those can also be obtained via the Hub for example.

7.j. Item: “Custom Down Animation
--> Same as above for down animation.

7.k. Item: “Disable Boot sound
--> If you haven’t done that already while installing (in Aroma Installer) you can now disable boot sound here.

This concludes the tweaks. Be sure to let me know wrong or missing descriptions. I did never use all tweaks and since the Dev team had been incredibly busy and could not answer every question I asked, some items descriptions are mere guesses and might not be fully correct. My sincere apologies
We don't want to misguide and confuse our users here, do we?

Empty if you want to reflash any files or so:

Just use Winrar or 7zip and drag and drop your files in the correct /system folder

This has been a tremendous journey, since Viper One S is far away from an ordinary custom ROM. I have never seen so many code changes, ten thousands of new lines have been added and the result is the most customizable ROM ever. This beast is even directly connected to the cloud with the option to download many Themes from Venom Hub and receive OTA updates.

I really need to thank especially torxx, who is just a fantastic dev and a great guy, the genuises behind that project j4n87 and monarx, the entire team, especially Vin and shniz who are really very helpful and nice guys. Last but not least a huge thx to our entire Beta team , you find all there names under credits, make sure you hit thx for them, since they hav spent hours testing and flashing and on out teamchat. Their help was really valuable and they all are an important part of our Team.

I really hope you enjoy this ROM as much as we already did during the testing period and be friendly and patient in this thread. We all are here for fun and want to enjoy the best device HTC has build (sorry X users...) with the best Sense ROM available on the market.

So enjoy guys
