@Mike1986 , firstly thank you very much for keeping our m8's up and running.:good:
2ndly- the "Android Revolution | Mobile Device.Technologies" site
which is awesome ; DL links not working for mobile device using chrome , specifically "Rooting Tools for the Htc One m8" (&m9) all the other links are good as far as i can tell.
not sure if this is under your 'jurisdiction' but thought i'd mention it. [error message is : this site cant be reached].
thank you again for all your m8 work. :)

does anyone have an idea :
i was going to give this rom a trial run but i am having an issue ; after flashing your rom i flash SuperSU , but when i reboot it does not have root nor is the superSU app in app drawer. (p.s. magisk is not an option for me).
ever hear of something like this or know a possible solution?

I am having a problem setting sd card as internal storage. I have tried both the 128GB and 64 GB. After selecting my card as internal storage, when I select format and around 20% done, my phone powers off and stuck in a continuous bootloop and my phone doesn't boot up until I remove the sd card. Any Help!

Same as on Viper 6.1.0

    I tested Android Revolution HD 53.1 on my HTC One M8, wifi signal was way too slow (doesn't happen on other roms), i selected to install gmail and chrome apps and those installed as user apps but they doesn't appear, i tried to move that apps and other apps to system and after rebooting, apps didn't move to system, like i didn't anything, also i want to know if i could install magisk instead of SuperSU because if i install SuperSU, i can't install some apps from play store.

    Also i want to say, rom looked really smooth and nice but those problems make me stop using it.

    Edit: i reinstalled this rom and didn't get any problem anymore, i think it was because the previous rom i had installed, i want to ask. Is there an way to odex this rom? i want to at least odex the apps i could odex to make this phone boot faster after factory reset.

    The only things i didn't like are two

    1. I can't modify system when i boot this rom, i can only do in TWRP
    2. Some of the installed Google Apps i chose to install were on user partition instead of system one but moving apk files from data partition to system/priv-app and giving them correct permissions make those apps work perfectly on system

    An note: if you want to replace SuperSu with magisk, flash the attached file, then open the Android Revolution HD 53.1.zip with winrar then extract boot.img and move it to your phone, flash boot.img from twrp then install magisk.

    Edit 2:
    This rom has more battery consumption and also freezing than android 10 and 11 roms and is so strange because is an android marshmallow rom.

      Important notes:
      1. If you want to say "Thanks!"

      There are many ways to show your support to the developer. You can:
      • Press the "Thanks" button.
      • Hit the donation button and "buy me a beer".
      • Share your opinion about my work and write some feedback in respective thread.
      • Advertise my work to your friends.
      • Rate my thread with 5 stars.
      Every way of support is highly appreciated, but it's not expected!

      2. Sharing policy

      This forum is about sharing. If you want to use any part of my work, please feel free to do it but remember about some simple rules:
      • Inform me about using my work by sending me a message. You don’t need my permission, just inform me.
      • Include link to my thread from where you took particular files.
      • Give proper credits for what you used.
      • When it comes to using my ROM as a base you are free to do it only if I don't have "Stock ROMs" thread available for particular device. If such thread exists, you are
        obligated to take ROMs from there instead. These threads with "Stock ROMs" are usually updated within 24 hours from the moment when I release my custom ROM.

      Sharing is one thing, but please respect some areas of my work like:
      • ROM name - "Android Revolution HD", "Android Revolution", "Revo HD", "AR HD" etc.
      • Graphics used in my threads, especially head-banners designed exclusivity for me.
      • Other parts of my work that are not supposed to be used by others without proper permission.
      Please let me keep my threads design unique. I’m sure you can do something even better yourself!

      3. Support

      If you have any issues or questions, please feel free to post them in the respective thread. Due to my commitments in real life I can't answer every PM, tweet or facebook post.
      If you want to get the fastest and the best answer - ask the question in the thread. Every month I need to remove about 1.000 new messages from my XDA inbox. I’m sure it’s better if I spend this time cooking new ROMs.​

      4. Signature banners for users

      Due to the increasing number of users flashing my ROMs we introduced some time ago 3 special groups of members.
      • Android Revolution HD Recognized User – every user might get this rank with proper banner by being active in my thread (or threads).
        Helping users to solve problems, answering questions or preparing threads with add-ons for Android Revolution HD are the most common ways to gain this rank. Just be active and we’ll contact you!

      • Android Revolution HD Advanced User – every user might get this rank with proper banner by doing some amazing modification, application, theme etc. for Android Revolution HD.
        Creating simple bootanimation might not be enough, but you never know! Having Recognized User status before is not needed!

      • Android Revolution HD Supporter – every user who shared some server space with us (with proper bandwidth) will get this banner. Please keep in mind we can't use DropBox shared folders.
        What we can use is minimum 20 GB of space and 10 Mbit upload speed. If you want to donate some server space to us, please contact me via private message.
      Apart of those special banners, every user might use one of our amazing user banners collected in this thread.

      Finally, thanks for using my work! I hope you will enjoy Android Revolution HD!

      Sense 6 Toolbox

      Sense 6 Toolbox
      by Mikanoshi & me

      What is Sense 6 Toolbox?
      Sense 6 Toolbox module contains a large variety of mods that will improve almost every aspect of your Sense device. You have to have Xposed installed to use these mods. For more info about Xposed refer to the original thread.

      A note about compatibility. We develop the toolbox on ARHD on the HTC One M7 and M8. That ensures that every mod is compatible with ARHD. We can't test the mods on every other ROM. But as long as the ROM is near stock without deep changes, it should work there too. For the best and most complete experience I recommend using ARHD.

      Which mods are included?
      For a complete list, please head over to http://sensetoolbox.com/6/modslist.

      Here is a summary:

      Interface mods
      • Transparent statusbar and notification drawer
      • Center clock, AM/PM removal, traffic meter, horizontal EQS
      • Gestures to manipulate recent apps and additional information about each app, AOSP styled recents
      • [Sense 6] Custom color themes for every app

      Statusbar mods
      • Icons by vomer (CleanBeam)
      • Customizable color themes for all new statusbar icons
      • Ability to hide icons

      Sense mods
      • Transparency for many UI elements (dock, clock widget, app drawer, folders, etc)
      • Infinite apps in folders, 7 home screens, home popup menu, more grid options for homescreens and app drawer
      • Actions for vertical swipes and shaking on homescreens, horizontal swipes on dock

      Messaging mods
      • Wake on SMS, increase MMS size
      • Replace delivery notifications with toasts
      • Increase MMS size

      Controls mods
      • Volume2wake
      • Activate flashlight on power long press
      • Bind actions to hardware buttons (Back long press and swipe up from Home)
      • Bind actions to volume keys for camera and music playback controls
      • [M8] Smaller softkey bar

      Various mods
      • Advanced Power Menu
      • Show more information about installed apps and apps that are being installed
      • Improved screen locking and unlocking
      • Hardware buttons backlight control
      • Large caller photo in dialer and on lockscreen during calls
      • Disable unwanted notifications and confirmation dialogs
      • On/off screen animations (Fade, CRT)

      How to use the Toolbox?
      First you must have Xposed Framework installed (more Info here). After that enable the Sense 6 Toolbox module in the Xposed Installer, set up the mods you like and tap 'Soft Reboot' icon to apply them.

      Backup functionality
      Toolbox supports settings backup and restore using default Andriod cloud capabilities. Enable backup in Settings > Backup & reset. Now every time you uninstall and install Toolbox its settings will be automatically restored. If you want to save/restore settings between reinstallations, use local backup on SDCard function (its button is next to Hot Reboot).
