The ics version is vm ready. All the ics roms are based on the leak from virgin mobile. As for a gingerbread Rom I doubt will see one that works with vm firmware unless we get a new dev that is a vm user. Even then I doubt it since everyone wants the latest and greatest.

I would move on to an official sprint based rom then this one that is 100% based off VM. That and Viper and Vin are no longer supporting this rom what so ever.
It was a great rom in its time and I rocked it for a long time but there are better ones out there using the sprint base and not the old VM base. Just my .02 cents.

Q: What makes this ROM different than all the other ROMs?
A: First and foremost, you will get the best support from the viperROM Team (-viperboy- and Vinchenzop). We personally reply to almost every post and we're always in the thread trying to help out. If you have to wait more than an hour or so for your question to be answered, that is unusual! What else is different??
- The inclusion of the OC Daemon for unprecedented battery life and performance
- The custom viperControl script that handles the OC daemon, bloat, and removed app management (more to come too!)
- A highly tuned system for incredible smoothness
Q: What is battery calibration and should I do it?
A: Yes!! If you aren't getting wonderful battery life or you think you can do better, do it! Here is the method I have used even back to my EVO 4G and it has always done well by me: Wipe battery stats (from recovery, or Battery Monitor Widget can do it [Menu > Statistics] and it doesn't matter what percentage you're at when you do so. Let the phone die and then fully charge. Take it off the charger and don't plug it in until it dies again, then fully charge. Your next charge cycle will be much better!
What some people don't understand is that you're not calibrating the battery as you are calibrating the phone. When you wipe and do this procedure, the phone reads where the max and min voltages are so it can report battery stats accurately.
Q: What is the deal with tethering?
A: I would recommend using Sprint Hotspot, it has been unlocked on viperROM so it can be used for free! Wifi Tether is still included but it doesn't seem to work very well for most people. This is an issue with the app, not the ROM. If you do want to try and use it, make sure to enable the Routing Fix in the Settings menu of the app. It has also been said that setting the device configuration to "HTC EVO 4G" helps as well.
Q: Do any themes work with this ROM?
A: The only mods and themes that we can be sure will be compatible with viperROM are the ones that are found within the viperROM Updater app. If there is a theme that you would like to try, make a nandroid and try it. If it doesn't work, restore your nandroid.
Q: My CRT animations don't work...what am I doing wrong?
A: As of the new base from HTC, the line that needs to be added to the build.prop to activate CRT animations causes the phone to not boot. So until an alternative method is found, the CRT animations are not included in any ROM based on the latest OTA update from HTC.
- Adjust the OC Daemon
- Change schedulers
- Adjust voltage (if on a custom kernel)
- Manage removed apps
- Freeze any app on the phone
- Modify lock screen text
- Run "fix permissions" (for FC issues)
- Adjust the capacitive button brightness
- Edit some features in build.prop
- Manage the hosts file
- You MUST flash a custom kernel to overclock! The ROM includeds the stock kernel that is not capable of overclocking. Well why do you call it the "OC Daemon" then?? Because I didn't make it and that's what they called it AND the daemon is capable of controlling OC. Makes sense to me. If you want to overclock (after flashing a custom kernel, of course), run the script and change the MAX awake to whatever OC you would like.
- The phone will boot up and detect if you're using SetCPU or other CPU apps. If you are, the daemon will be DISABLED automatically. If you aren't, the daemon will be enabled.
