  1. Download the latest rom from our venomroms download page
  2. If you got an external sdcard place the downloaded zip there. In case you haven't, wait for step 6 to copy it to your internal sdcard.
  3. Backup your internal sdcard if you got important content on it. Unlocking bootloader will wipe all your data, including your internal sdcard. Your external sdcard will stay untouched.
  4. Register at HTCdev if you dont have an account yet and follow the instructions there to unlock your bootloader
  5. Boot up your phone and copy the rom to your internal sdcard in case you didn't in step one to your external.
  6. Download the lastest TWRP Recovery version on the TWRP Download Page
  7. Flash it with fastboot with following command: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (replace recovery.img with the actual filename it got downloaded with)
  8. To boot into recovery use 'adb reboot recovery' or press and hold power + volume down and wait till it booted to the bootloader. From there you can navigate with the volume buttons and confirm with the power button to boot to the recovery
  9. If you are coming from stock: Make a backup of your stock rom in TWRP recovery. Include System Image and Boot. Now you have a full stock backup, except recovery, in case you want to return back to stock one day.
  10. Ensure you allow system modifications in TWRP when asked.
  11. In TWRP click Install and pick the rom either from internal or external sdcard to install it.
  12. The installer will start and will guide you through the installation

Kung FUU

If you have questions regarding Firmware, you may redirect them to my thread here:


Please be aware though that i keep my thread mainly for providing the files and information, I dislike off-topic very much and will ask moderation to rigidly remove anything that is not helpful to other users (helpful are problems with good answers in not too many posts ;) ). This is in most cases nothing personal, let me just say: don't be offended if a post of yours is being removed as regular thread maintenance.

The other option you can use is the new ticket support system on venomroms.com where i will be trying to answer firmware/viperone related questions. You may NOT abuse that support system for purely firmware related stuff because that is my business and not Team Venom's. The support system is theirs though. So please do ask, but make sure its the right place for your question first!

Thanks guys!

18.08.2014 Post Quote from way up the thread
KK listen up guys quick heads-up on an important firmware thing:

the past days have revealed some real sh!t issues with guys running old Firmware underneath this nice ROM - nothing we can do about sorry.
BUT: i have this neat FUU solution over HERE which will give you a similar way like HTC's RUU to update your firmware you WILL need S-OFF this way. S-ON users, please check HERE!

Now, the current Tmobile section seems not to have an active Firmware guy anymore, so i decided to run a quick FUU / ZIP package for ya.

Grab it right where the first link points. INT users please refer to Post #1 of same thread and VZW, sorry you're currently screwed.

PLEASE do update your Firmware - it will save you enormous headaches! Some phones seem not to take it too well. This is real.

UPDATE 2014/10/11
Looks like there's yet another firmware support nightmare rolling in.
3.28.401.6 will be fine with ViperOneM8 2.5.0 - no issues detected. Full Firmware package available on my thread in the above link.
3.28.401.6 ROM however will NOT be running on older firmware! You WILL have to UPDATE.​
