With the 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.

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!

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 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?
A:

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: Why does my swype2unlock doesn`t work?
A: Seems you mix up sweep2wake from shows bricked kernel with swype2unlock

sweep2wake is kernel related and makes it possible to turn screen off and on by swiping your finger from back to menu key.

swype2unlock isn`t 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 it 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 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.

Team Venom - ViperDHD: Google Issue Tracker
Major bugs (high priority):
  • none

Minor bugs (low priority):
  • Infinite Scrolling Tweak (not perfect)
  • Burst Mode in Camera
  • Left and Right Lockscreen Tweaks in Landscape are not good (portrait is perfect)

Tips:

Quote:

  • If you notice the ROM slows down, wipe cache and it will be good
  • After a reboot the Rosie needs about 5 minutes to get full speed, so have patience, after it everything will be great





  1. Download the ROM
  2. Flash the ROM (AROMA Installer will pop up)
  3. Choose Fullwipe (important)
  4. Choose the mods you want
  5. Reboot
  6. The Rosie (HTC Sense launcher) needs about 5-10 minutes to get the best speed, so it needs some time of playing until you have the best speed
  7. Battery life is the best after 3 charginig cycles so give the ROM a chance
