Browser pages are blanking but coming back up quickly when I go to them.

I have not changed from the stock 2.0.2 oom or minfree values.

I'll keep adding stuff. I don't know. This is looking mighty chipper so far to me.

AnTuTu - 7927

Quadrant - 5888

I don't know if those are supposed to be good or bad, I'm just trying to show stuff running.

Great.

After many saying this works, one guy has reported that his contact lag is slowly creeping back in.

There's a flashable zip they put out if you are uncomfortable with editing system files.

Give me a few moments to track it down, no problem.

The revert.zip undoes the changes, the other one (without the revert) installs them.

For some reason my email has stopped working. It wouldn't connect to the server and would say login failed. So I removed the account and tried to re add the hotmail acct and it wouldn't allow me to do it. Any ideas?

Hotmail actually acts up and does this from time to time along with Yahoo mail accounts.

I think it was last year that we documented the both of them tinkering with their servers and claiming to users that they weren't.

See if there are others with new server parameters for a manual account setup is about all I can suggest. If you can give it a day, it might clear itself.

Sorry, that's all I got on that one.

Is that mod only for Viper? I tried it on MeanROM and it cut my download speed in half. Went from 2.3 megabytes per second down to 1.1 megabyte per second.

It's not affected mine.

Did your download speed restore after reverting it?

Have you tried going back and forth to ensure it's this?

Nothing there should impact net speed at all.

MeanROM uses the same heap settings as viper - htc stock values.

Surprised that this would be an issue.

I just reverted and tested again. I'm still downloading at 1.1 megabyte per second. So I guess it wasn't the mod. Darn, I was hoping to get that great download speed back. I have no idea what slowed my phone down. Hmm. Oh well, cest la vie.

Probably normal (or abnormal now that I think of it) tower maintenance.

Try Open Signal Maps, see if you're tower hopping.

Man, I'm lucky to get a 0.3 whenever I go. I have never gotten a 1.0 or greater anywhere.

Nah, I was on Wi-Fi when I tried it out. But my Wi-Fi is extremely unreliable because I live in the middle of nowhere. When I got 2.3 megabytes per second I think I may have just gotten lucky. When I'm on mobile data I'm lucky to get 200 kilobytes per second.

This is by far the most awesome ROM for customizing. I think I found my daily driver for my new LTE.

Does anyone know what the correct kernel is for this current version as I still have S-ON and need to flash is separately. The kernel that I currently have running with this ROM is:

3.0.8-01680-gb6402b4
root@ABM030#1
SMP PREEMPT

That's the stock kernel, same one Viper4G uses, so you should be ok.

At the first sign of trouble (bootloops etc) go ahead and flash the one from Viper4G but I doubt that you will need to.

BTW, there's a sneak peek of some fixes coming in the next release going up tonight, good stuff.

LOL...Yup! I was kinda of a flashaholic with my old EVO until I found one that I really liked. One of the reasons I like this ROM so much is the major amount of customizing you can do. I like being able to hide the clock and battery icons in the status bar since I already have those widgets on my home screen I don't need them twice.

I'm just about full circle for comming back to Viper.

I'm going to try and flash this soon, already downloaded the lag fix too. I really didn't experience lag too bad last time I ran the ROM. I'm not a heavy multi-tasker either, so that may be the rub there.

Eiither way I'll reflash this, then flash the lag fix in the same recovery session as recommended by Viperboy. Thanks for the heads up EM.

Do I HAVE TO flash the kernal after this ROM?? Or only if I need the stock kernal (which I presume I already have)??

I figure you're doing ok or I'd have heard back.

I recommend flashing the following two things -

#Fapple - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1947686 - be sure to grab the version for Viper

lagfix4 for #Fapple - will speed things up nicely - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=35084694&postcount=9071

Wipe cache and Dalvik after you've finished flashing.

Note - in TWRP, you can stack those up and flash in one session - be sure to do them in that order though.

PS - also, not a bad idea to update PRL and Profile when done with all of that.

I've tried the #fapple / lag fix 4 twice now, and it still shows the app associations tab in settings.

I've full wiped twice now, and installed as per Vins post. I guess I'm not holding it right.

Might try to flash it stand alone instead of all in the same recovery session.

Yeah I was doing fine...hence the silence. Was also running errands.

Was wondering why the suggestion for #Fapple?? My guess is that one is NOT prompted for app associations where one would WANT the association choice correct?? So that you can associate whatever you want whenever you want.

As an aside, similar to app associations above was used an app called Andmade Share that permits you to narrow down the list of share choices, hiding them from the list and also allowing you to send using multiple apps. I only ever use like email, text, facebook so it was VERY annoying to be prompted for like 20 different possible sharing apps. Cool to have for the share menus...

Still at the verrrrrry beginning of all of this so I'll be back soon....

#Fapple makes your phone behave as it did before the legal battle, in addition to giving you the pop-up so you can select anything.

Without #Fapple -

With #Fapple, plain text urls in apps are detected correctly, same as it ever was -

uploadfromtaptalk1355006778718.jpg


So, if that matters to you, you want #Fapple.

Then pick the lagfix that matches your setup, with or without fapple.

Wait until you discover button re-mapping and getting rid of those 3 dots on every screen - Venom Tweaks, available in your app drawer or from your quick settings.

And themes and font changes are a click away now.

Might try to flash it stand alone instead of all in the same recovery session.
You're flashing #Fapple first, then lagfix4-fapple second?

Huh, I told you I wasn't holding it right.

Nope, I misunderstood and thought it had #fapple included.

Thanks EM.

*Off to flash #fapple....*

Interesting, because that #Faaple link above showed screenshots of app associations only but not the clickable links that you showed. Now THOSE I miss!

Do I just flash #Fapple in recovery??

Custom FONT...good, I had a custom font on my old EVO. I looked at the Viper Tweaks —> Advan and the ability to use a custom font. Takes me to HTC files as you know.

Do I just grab a font pack zip to get a custom font?? If so, where do I put it to show in the HTC files?? Also, how do I get back to the "stock" font if I need to?? I checked the Team Venom Viper 4G 2.0.2 thread and searched for custom font installation instructions but didn't find. I sometimes don't have too much luck with thread searches...

THANKS!!

Yep, flash #Fapple in recovery, followed by lagfix4-fapple.

Look in your app drawer for Venom Hub. Clickable font installer with samples, no flashing required.

For a return to stock font here's that with a little extra made by a venom team member -

I recommend flashing the following two things -

lagfix4 for #Fapple - will speed things up nicely - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=35084694&postcount=9071

Wipe cache and Dalvik after you've finished flashing.
The Viper version for #Fapple file link at the first link above is entitled

"#Fapple_FINAL(Viper4g compatible W/Lag fix)"

Do I still have to run lagfix4 after this as suggested??

Any way I can install the "Decker" font?? It wasn't listed in the Venom Hub but I had it running on my old EVO:

300 Flashable Font Packs for the EVO 4G


The Decker font is in post #7. The above fonts were only tested on the EVO 4G as indicated at the font link...

Not sure what the criteria is for flashable fonts. I do know that font installers and I think some fonts can get you bootlooping.

I made the mistake of thinking both the #fapple and the lagfix were included in the same .zip too.

I needed to flash #fapple for Viper first then the lagfix for #fapple second to get everything hunky dory.

EM got me straightened out on that one too.

So you see an improvement/are happy with flashing both?? I haven't flashed either yet...I've only rooted a couple days ago with not much time to sit and and play.

Lagfix does more than the name implies.

It adjusts memory control parameters and has a big impact on multitasking. Without it, things like the Chrome browser can lock up forcing you reboot. With it, that's virtually gone.

Lagfix 4 is close to all such adjustments coming baked in on the next release.

Lagfix 4 is the latest I've seen. If you have the #fapple mod flashed, make sure you use the lagfix with #fapple included.

I'm very happy with this mod added to the Rom. Very snappy and like EM said the multitasking works a lot better than stock.

Yes. lagfix incorporates an updated version the lagfree changes and many others.

If lag persists after lagfix4, you have to wipe and then re-install with lagfix4 immediately after that (or #fapple and lagfix4 if that's your preference).

Ok, I have come from MeanRom, and JellyBomb and like all the roms I have tried. This one seem the closest to the features I want. I have two questions:

1. I put a status bar icon on and would like to remove it but don't know how, can anyone help?

2. is there any way to have a 4x5 Rosie? I thought there was but It looks like I am wrong.

Thanks Chris.

Did you put the icon on courtesy of an app (for example, Quick System Info Pro does that)? If so, you can remove those in that app's settings.

There was a mod for 4x5 Rosie, but I'll have to check where that is and if it's compatible with this version. I'll also see if I can find out if it's going into the upcoming release. No guarantees but I'll check.

I dug around EM, and I couldn't find a rosie mod that wasn't included in the tweaks. I gave it a solid 20 minutes, searching through the Viper threads, no dice.

Hopefully you can find something.
