i can't opend download mode or recovery in spite of Laptop get devices seri
You'll need to get to bootloader if I recall correctly to enter the unlock code. Sorry, I don't remember exactly. I haven't unlocked the bootloader on an HTC device since the 10 came out in 2016.

You can find the serial number and IMEI in settings > about > phone identity (at least that's where it's at on my 10 ~ it should be something similar if not exact)

I think you're asking how to recover your phone...

download the RUU and rename it to 2Q55IMG.zip and put it onto a 16 or 32GB SD card. after inserting reboot into download mode and follow the instructions.

and, yes, you should be able to access download mode on your U12+, although it can be a bit tricky to execute

Tôi nghĩ bạn đang hỏi cách khôi phục điện thoại của mình ...

tải xuống RUU và đổi tên nó thành 2Q55IMG.zip và đặt nó vào thẻ SD 16 hoặc 32GB. sau khi chèn khởi động lại vào chế độ tải xuống và làm theo hướng dẫn.

và, vâng, bạn sẽ có thể truy cập chế độ tải xuống trên U12 + của mình, mặc dù có thể hơi phức tạp để thực thi

Thanks. I'll try Beta 7 soon! In noticed in Beta 6 that the wired HTC headphones weren't detected, the HTC camera app was unstable, and occasionally the phone would become mostly unresponsive (requiring a long press of the power button to reboot). Does Beta 7 address some of these issues in Beta 6?

你的指紋識別有效嗎?
My U11 doesn't work.
Do you mean the finger sensor? I installed Beta 7 onto my HTC U12+. Beta 7 finger sensor works for me. The set up was a bit weird in that it'd look like the set up prematurely would end before my last capture touch. However that didn't seem to affect the unlocking ability.

Here are some observations after installing Beta 7:
1. HTC wire headphones now work. Yay! My phone launched a Google Assistant feature. I haven't figured out how to set up the headphone customization like in stock.
2. HTC camera app is working so far.
3. Need to use the phone more to see if I get the random freezes but so far no freeze.

你是說手指傳感器嗎?我在 HTC U12+ 上安裝了 Beta 7。Beta 7 手指傳感器對我有用。設置有點奇怪,因為看起來設置會在我最後一次捕獲觸摸之前過早結束。不過這似乎並不影響解鎖能力。

以下是安裝 Beta 7 後的一些觀察結果:
1. HTC 有線耳機現在可以使用了。好極了!我的手機啟動了 Google Assistant 功能。我還沒有弄清楚如何像庫存一樣設置耳機定制。
2. HTC 相機應用程序運行至今。
3. 需要更多地使用手機,看看我是否得到了隨機凍結但到目前為止沒有凍結。
No, is Fingerprint recognition to unlock

I finally found a bug with Beta 7: When connected to my car's bluetooth, I can play music from my phone to the car. However, for phone calls, audio does not stream to the car's bluetooth. Note that I can control my phone from my car's touchscreen.

Thanks por this great rom. Very smooth and usefull. Im competely new around here (in posting) and with few experience in flashing (I tried succesfully with my m8 and HTC10 en U Ultrabefore) and after some days reading a lot here, I finally unbricked muy U12+ and bring it back thanks to all your knowledge

One strange thing I noted is that My security patch says December 1 2025

This is the second time I flash the rom in my device. The first try the security patch said September 2019.

Dont know if this is big deal but doesnt bother the operación of the phone


Everything else is running like a charm

I use this ROM from beta6. I discovered several issues in beta6 and beta7:
  1. The time will reset to 02 o'clock AM everytime after reboot and will not sync unless you insert a SIM card.
  2. Finger print unlock not working after device running for days. It will show "fingerprint hardware not work" in lock screen.
For anyone that cannot connect to mixed WPA3/WPA2 encryption Wifi AP. Put the APK file attatched to /vendor/overlay/ and reboot.

I also noticed that finger print sensor will stop working after some time. A reboot will bring it back for some time. Also found that my Google Podcast won't play on Ford Sync (but plays fine connected to other bluetooth speakers).

    Finally it happened, we have got almost stable ROM with minimal bugs and we are ready to move from Alpha to Beta version. Let's hope Stable version will be soon as well and we will do all the best to bring new features to the beautiful HTC U12+.

    ViperExperience Alpha 5 (16 August 2020)

    Fixes& Updates
    • 5 August 2020 Security patch
    • @phhusson patches v222
    • Added EdgeSense settings to Settings
    • Added EdgeSense QS Tile
    • Some unvisible changes in system for futher updates like OTA, FaceUnlock

    P.S. At this moment I'm not able to work on ROM fully. Unfortunately, my U12+ doesn't turn on anymore and I have to wait and send all my builds to testers that not so much effective like when you do it by yourself. I hope all problem will be solved soon and I will be able to work on the rom fully. A lot of things like FaceUnlock, all Camera features and OTA Updates require deep learning of all mechanisms in original HTC U12+ ROM and it take a lot of time. So please be patient and sorry me if smth doesn't work properly. I'm trying to do all my best that I can.

    [MANUAL] Fix CTS Profile Mismatch

    Initial situation: most GSIs are rooted to a certain extent. This also applies to the AOSP GSI, which is the basis of our ViperExerience ROM.

    Precondition: To correct the CTS mismatch, it is necessary that Magisk is installed.

    If the precondition is fulfilled, proceed as follows:

    1. Install the Magisk modules "Busybox" from Osmosis, and "MagiskHide Propst Config" from Didgeridoohan
    2. After a device restart, open a Terminal App on your HTC U12+ and go through the following steps
      • Request root privileges by typing
        Code:
        su
      • Start the Props module by typing
        Code:
        props
      • Type
        Code:
        1
        to set a new fingerprint for the device
      • Follow the instructions in order by selecting
        Code:
        f
        and
        Code:
        7
        (for HTC).
      • finally type
        Code:
        4
        (for U12+ Pie).
