Disclaimer: I will take no responsibility if flashing this zip somehow causes you to go deaf, scares your cat, receiving of noise complaints from your neighbors, development of anti-social behavior, getting hit by a bus, a twerking grandmother, broken windows and/or any other imaginable royally screwed possibility.

Q: Will this work on other Samsung devices?
A: Maybe, I see no reason for it not to work on the S8 or S8+. Feel free to test it out and report back.

Credits: @zhuhang for ViPER4Android FX & XHiFI.
@partcyborg, @me2151, and @elliwigy for hooking us up with root.

Features: Systemwide ViPER4Android FX 2.3.4.0 (higher audio processing than newer versions) and ViPER4Android XHiFi.

Installation steps (make sure to read these before downloading the ZIP):
1) Make sure you're rooted.
2) Download either FlashFire (Snapdragon - thank you, @Chainfire) or install TWRP (Exynos).
3) Install BusyBox, to /system/xbin (otherwise, XHiFi will not work, only FX will).
4) Get Titanium Backup, ROM Toolbox PRO, or any similar application.
6) Freeze "Adapt Sound" and "SoundAlive".
5) Flash the attached zip.
6) Grant root permissions to both FX and XHiFi (you might have to uninstall the FX driver within the in-app settings to trigger this, if so, simply reflash the ZIP after having done so and reboot).
7) Reread step six.
8) Profit & enjoy.

Won't installing busybox to system/xbin trip up safety net flagging your device as tampered/rooted? Also, if you have magisk, can't you just install the v4a module right from within magisk? I don't see the point in going through all these extra steps and flagging your device in safety net when you can just install the v4a magisk module. Not trying to be a ****, asking honest questions.

If you have a Snapdragon device, SafetyNet is already tripped due to the nature of the rooting process.

But if you have an Exynos device, by all means, use the Magisk module. This ZIP was intended for the Snapdragon variant (since that's what I have), but works on Exynos variants as well.

Was anyone able to install busybox and viper4android after getting rooted? I tried flashing the viper4android zip using flashfire but it doesn't seem to do anything and busybox installer will not install to any system location. Thanks in advance. Also, I have the snapdragon version and rooted using samfail.

Yeah, I used the old busybody version. I just went back to stock after a few hours of messing around with no results. My main reason for root and accepting the 80% battery limit is viper but since I can't get it working I went back to stock for now. Will try again once there is more development. Let me know if you do get it working.

When you guys flashed it with Flashfire, which options did you enable/disable? Mind taking a screenshot of the preflash stage for me? Do you see the Flashfire installation screen? You should be able to see the ZIP flash progress script.
As for those having problems with installing BusyBox, if you're using Stericson's, you have to manually grant the storage permission.

Just select the zip and start the flashing process. It went black then the flashfire process starts then phone reboots but no sign of the viper app anywhere. How do I manually grant permission? What is the best way to install busybox?

I personally used BusyBox Pro by Stericson (he's an amazing developer), but I did have to manually grant the storage permission first by going to: App info > Permissions > Storage (toggle it on).
If this doesn't work, use BusyBox Installer (warning: it's riddled with ads).
As for Flashfire, try enabling the "mount system read/write" option.

Thank you for your help bro. I did what you said, busybox installed successfully. But after flashing with flashfire, even when checking mount, there's still no sign of viper after reboot

That is the strangest thing, I can't imagine why the ViPER apps wouldn't show up. The only thing that comes to mind is... If you ran the fsck script after rooting, did you?

I had the same issue, but then in FlashFire, under settings I disabled Emulate framebuffer.. Now Viper4android is installed and working.

Does anyone on Snapdragon have this and FM Radio working together? Unfortunately, I'm finding I can't run both. I don't know if it's my Viper settings or what. Any input would be appreciated as I don't want to have to choose between the two features if I don't have to

For those who had trouble on snapdragon try using latest Sam fail v2 if possible it works perfect on here if you follow directions. Few key things, disable emulate framebuffer in flashfire and when flashing enable mount read and write system, also make sure you install drivers in both v4a apps to enable root as root access is need for v4a to work properly after unistalling drivers and granting root reflash zip in flashfire to restore drivers and profit
