  1. Be s-off (or dev unlock)
  2. Install a custom recovery (twrp/4ext)
  3. Download the ROM and place it on your external SD card.
  4. Do a nandroid backup!
  5. Start rom install process and make sure you select to wipe data in aroma
  6. Select your desired setup in aroma, and finish
  7. Reboot the device and enjoy!
  8. If you are dev unlock, you need to pull the boot.img from the rom zip and fastboot it in hboot

Q: How do I install the rom?!
A: Installation instructions above.

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: Whats the boot.img. Why we need to flash it? (s-off folks ignore)
A: The boot.img is the kernel and have to be flashed if you want your rom running well. HTC DevUnlock 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. Themes for other venom roms, *may* work...however if they flash apps or framework files you may run into serious problems. Anything for the venom theming engine is fine, but remember it may not theme everything on our specific device.

Q: My question is not listed here, what to do?
A: Feel free to post it in the thread, other users may be able to help you out.

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: The cube effect isn't working on the app drawer
A: The cube effect just appears when you swipe from the all over the frequent to the download tab.

Q: What are the correct sizes for the App drawer and notfication pulldown background?
A: Try 480x800.

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 changed some required code in their libs, which 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.

Q: How do I set the rom up for GSM? Will I get 3g?
A: Select GSM as the version of the rom you want during install...testers reported EDGE only speeds (same as all other ports).

Q: Can I use a custom kernel with this rom?
A: Presently, no. Unless HTC releases kernel source for the chinese OTA's, or the Virtuous Team brings their work on the 3.xx primou kernel to this device, we are stuck with the stock chinese kernel.

Q: Can I tether with this rom?
A: Native tethering requires fixes in the kernel, at source level, so that is non functioning. However, many are successfully using Barnacle WiFi Tether (market) to do so, and easytether (usb, market) also works fine.

As if the ROM wasn't customisable enough, the venom 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!

edit: we use different signal and data icons then our gsm cousins on other viperRoms! I will add a quick explanation of the differences in the near future for themers

Q: I tried out some cool looking status bar themes from Venom Hub, but they dont theme my data or signal icons?!
A: Since Venom Roms are primarily on gsm devices, most existing themes are meant for qHD and HD res GSM devices. Our cdma rom calls on different icons, and the respective devs set "all devices" for those particular themes when they really dont apply to us. I'll do my best to port them and reup them.

Q: Can I take someone elses theme for another device/rom and port it for venom?
A: We cannot add your theme to venom hub if its using someone else's work, unless they give you specific permission.

Q: Can I use that "themer" signature badge?
A: If you make either a hub skin/theme/rosie theme or old-school theme, sure.

I know someone will ask eventually, so I'll do it now. How does the camera work? I assume this has the same camera issues as other sense 4 ROM's due to kernel issues.

camera should be about the same as ukb....but honestly i cant remember if i made any significant changes between the last ukb and early venom betas

the beta testers can probably tell ya better than i can
