Hi folks, I'm on the latest version of Viper. Flashed Viper_Black_Latest theme and getting Calender fc. Not knowing much about the theming process, can a theme cause this? I've checked this against my nandroid twice and the fc occurs after theming.
Thx mate, will fix in the evening!

Which theme? If you mean red venom, I haven't done that since sense 5.5.


Cant remember what it was called, but the apps on the settings screen were red, like the dark one with the blue setting apps. I had it on my phone from ver. 1.60 thru 1.81. Or is there one out there that has red setting apps?

No, not currently, but I could do a flashable zip that adds them on if you want.

@Basil3 Have you thought about doing a transparent theme like you did on the M7? I think it was an add on to the Flat Theme you were doing.

Custom boot animation not installing

Can someone please help me the custom animation Viper_strike_red_bootanimation.zip keeps on failing to install. My HTC one m8 is rooted and has S-Off using the sunshine method and I also have the latest versio of the ViperOne M8 ROM.

    So, you've downloaded and been blown away by the most advanced ROM on the HTC One M8 - ViperOne M8!!

    Well, the fun doesn't end there! Thanks to Team Venom's powerful theme engine, you can change multiple elements of the theme on the fly - a never-before seen feature on any ROM.

    Of course as with anything new, there is much confusion how this works. The aim of this thread is to clarify how to change various aspects of the theme, and unleash the full power of the Viper!

    There are 2 aspects to themeing on ViperOne M8:

    • The built in theme engine (covering statusbar icons, Sense icons, wallpapers, fonts etc)
    • The full flashable theme, which completely transforms the look of your device


    To some degree, the effects of these are independent. So you can change aspects of the built in theme without changing the skin, or change the skin but keep theme elements. Or even keep everything, and just change the Sense icons. The possibilities are endless.

    The secret to ViperOne's stunning good looks is a combination of the above, and you can find more information on this over the next 4 posts


    Please post any theme questions / issues here rather than on the main ROM thread, let's keep that clean for ROM issues.

    Thank you

    Most previous downloads can be accessed from our Venom Download HQ, kindly provided by @Whiskey103.....thanks mate!​

    PLEASE NOTE:
    - It is highly recommended you dirty flash the ROM (flash without wipe) between switching themes
    - It is highly recommended you change TWRP settings to remove screen timeout, if you want to flash multiple mods at once. Go to Settings > Screen > Uncheck enable screen timeout.



    So, you've had a play around with the Venom Hub and seen how many customization options are available. But somehow, it's not quite enough?! Well, that's where the RedVenom theme comes in. This is a full flashable theme that takes the customization to the next level.

    As you can see from the screenshots, flashing the theme brings a touch of red to all elements of the UI, including all the system images, phone, keyboard etc.

    - Change between multiple different themes on the fly through Settings > Personalise > Themes
    - Aroma option for dark headers independent of which theme you're using
    - Stock icons throughout

    ViperLight NO LONGER AVAILABLE

    • Change between 8 different themes on the fly using settings > personalize > themes
    • Choose between light or dark dialer and keyboard

    94bj9fz.jpg


    Directions to do your own ViperLight custom colour:
    (requires ViperLight 3.x.x to be flashed first, preferably without extended colours):

    1. Download ViperLight Custom 3.0 zip from here, and unzip on your PC.
    2. Download HxD hex editor from here
    3. In the unzipped file, navigate to \vrtheme\system\framework\com.htc.resources.apk and open the resources.arsc with HxD
    4. Using the replace function (ctrl+r) replace 12 34 56 with your chosen hex. Two values should be replaced. Please note, that you need to reverse your number for hex, so 33 B5 E5 (ICS Blue) would become E5 B5 33 when replacing with HxD. Also ensure that you are searching in hex-values, as pictured below.

    75lmRM1.png


    5. Save the file in HxD (and you can delete the .bak file in the folder), then zip the files back up.
    6. Copy to device and flash in recovery. You custom theme will be theme number two.

    Please let me know of any issues.


    Colour codes:
    Green: 6ed294 Orange: ffa63d Blue: 0761b9 Red: 930010 HTC Green: 69b40f Faded Blue: 6BAAC7 Pink: cb2ba4 Purple: 92278f


    Just flash the zip through recovery. To revert back, just reflash the ROM without wiping.

    Theming is very much a team effort, so thanks to all of the following people, whose ideas/inspiration/fixes etc have been used in one way or another in these themes. I'm sure I'm forgetting some people, so let me know if I've left you off!




    @j to the 4n, @Turge, @ivicask, @hansbert and @m0narx for the amazing Viper ROM
    @rayford85 for his original themes, an inspiration to us all!
    @fisha21 for knowing the answer to virtually every theming question I have.
    @ViNOK16Bit, @Guich, @Krocko and @Kiray1982 the other venom themers.
    @Raymond Ebertt for discussions on the finer points of theming
    @Pfaffinator, @AhLot and @lesscro for graphics
    @Pneuma1985, @Onepagebook, @ineedone, @Punka-res.apk, and all contributors on the Sense 6 theming thread

    Thanks also to the Venom Beta Testers, who are always willing to test out any themes before they are released.

    So you've read about the revolutionary theme engine in the ROM thread. But what exactly can you do with it? Basically, it allows you to alter some of the graphical elements on the fly, without needing to flash or even reboot.

    Using Venom Tweaks, you can change the appearance of:

    • Statusbar icons
    • EQS icons
    • Battery icons
    • Sense icons
    • Notification shade background
    • App drawer background


    These elements are all independent and can be changed to suit your tastes. So, you can use icons from different icon sets to mix and match your own personal theme.

    But that's not all. Take a closer look at the screens where you choose statusbar themes and icon sets. You'll notice that each supported statusbar icon can be changed independently. So you like wifi icon from theme A, but battery from theme B? No problem, download both and mix it up as much as you want. You're only limited by what's available in the Hub.

    And if there's some icons you want that aren't in the Hub? That's what the Venom kitchen is for.....​
    Special thanks to:


    • jotha - for the battery Icons

    :)

    As if the ROM wasn't customisable enough, the ROM devs have also developed the Venom theme kitchen.

    Really want some statusbar icons that aren't in the Hub,or got a great idea for a set of Sense icons? Why not make it yourself and share it with others via the Venom Hub?!

    We've put some themes in the Hub to get you started, but the aim is to fill it with user generated content.
    We've tried to make the tutorial as easy as possible, but if you have any questions, here's the place to ask.

    Post your completed themes here, with a screenshot. If the theme looks nice we will add it with credits to the venom hub, so all users can download it from there!

    One thing we ask though - ideally you'd be using icons you've created yourself. If you are going to use someone's else icons, please ask them for their permission first.
    We all spend a lot of our free time making these, and it's really annoying to see your work ripped off by someone else! I'm sure you'd all agree.

    If you used icons from the UOT kitchen, then say so.

    Happy theming!

    Splash + Bootanim + Downanim + TWRP Theme

    Peeps,

    For all of you interested, I created a ViperOneM8 splash screen and matching boot- and downanimations and TWRP Themes.
    Courtesy to @Whiskey103 for creating the original ones for our ViperOne powered M7.
    All I did was add an M8 to all the images.

    The boot- and downanimations do NOT need to be flashed (in fact they can't be flashed with these zipfiles). Just put em on internal storage or sd card and select them through VenomTweaks.

    As for the splash screen, this needs to be flashed in RUU mode:

    1. adb reboot-bootloader
    2. fastboot oem rebootRUU
    3. fastboot flash zip [zipfile]
    4. fastboot reboot

    Make sure you are supercid (fastboot oem writecid 11111111), otherwise nothing will happen. Take note of your original cid (fastboot oem readcid) in case you want to change back to it (fastboot oem writecid [previously noted cid].
    As of now it should no longer be required to have supercid in order to flash the splash screens. I have updated the zipfiles with cid numbers found in 1.54.401.5 firmware zipfile and added VZW__001 for Verizon support.

    Please note that I am not responsible for any damage on your device. Flash at your own risk.

    Thanks to @hd2neuling for pointing this out

    TWRP theme zipfile needs to be renamed to ui.zip and placed in TWRP/theme folder on internal storage. Although the filename might suggest you need TWRP 2.7.0.3, this zip can be used on TWRP 2.7.x.x The new ui.xml from TWRP 2.7.1.0 is slightly different than the old one, although the theme zipfile may work, you might lose some functionality (preferred method is to use the hardcoded theme).

    The hardcoded theme downloads can be flashed in recovery (untested for Verizon). Afterwards reboot recovery to see the effect.

    As for the Verizon recoveries, since I do not own a Verizon device, these are currently untested. So keep a copy of the original recovery at hand.
    I have uploaded flashable zipfiles as well as .img files for Verizon. Please test the flashable zipfile(s) and let me know if they work. If so, I will remove the .img files.

    Also attached some screenshots

    Enjoy.

    Bootanimations fixed based on @Kiray1982 comment.

    Download links

    Code:
    [B]NOTE:[/B]
    In order for the OS version to show in bootloader again, first flash the new recovery zipfile I posted here and afterwards reflash the appropriate firmware zipfile through fastboot again. Do it in this order or your OS version will be empty again.
