When you do 5A you would say yes.. Irrespective of the device (htc sensation covers sensation 4g too)

For wifi fix.. Do the rom flash again..without any wipe.. Make sure you first do 5A properly then do the rom flash

Thanks for writing this useful guide. Just put ViperS 1.0.1 on my Sensation XE using this guide. Everything worked as the guide explained. Only thing i need to do now is sort out wifi not working.
Extra 1 step for wifi fix..
If it didn't solved the issue.. Reflash the rom with smartflash enabled without any wipe

Thanks for the quick response. Tried reflashing the boot.img from the roms boot.img in kernel directory. I'll try reflashing the rom now as instructed. :good:

Legend. Worked a treat! Without being a pain, why has this worked?

Flashing Rom

I tried flashing ViperS using 4ext, and am getting the following error:

Under updating kernal...
assert failed: write_raw_image ("/tmp/newboot.img", "boot")

I've tried to re-flash via recovery, but Viper will not start up. Thoughts?

Thanks!

Maybe a bad download, try downloading the ROM again then re flash everything doing a full wipe. If no luck with that then back up your SD card and do a full re format with fat 32, then try again.

The same explanation kernel and it's module mismatches.. SmartFlash will behave naughty ;) initially so some extra flashes are required

Thank you very much for making this very useful guide! SO easy to follow and helped me install ARHD without any headache :D
You are welcome!

Updated the guide: Some people seemed to get stuck during the first boot after flashing a rom, they need to do step Extra 1 and the issue should be resolved.
