For this week’s HTC One ROM of the Week, check out the latest ViperOne ROM for HTC One, available for both original HTC One M7 and the new HTC One M8.
Based on latest HTC Sense 6.0 Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, ViperOne brings you a new Sense experience where customization is the norm and you will be able to enjoy many 3rd-party rooted apps easily.
ViperOne ROM comes with its own Venom Tweaks app that allows you to fully customize your HTC One in many ways. Although the number of customization is too many to list here let me point out some of my favorites.
For status bar, you will be able to enable “Quick pulldown” for your toggles just like an AOSP ROM. You do have option of using a battery bar instead of a battery icon, which could give you more space in your status bar for stuff like Network Traffic Monitor, which is also an option in Venom Tweaks. Other cool stuff you can do on the status bar include custom Carrier label, double-tap sleep, and much more.
For tweaking the launcher, you will be able to chose from many different custom system animations, change your home screen grid (4×4, 4×5, 5×6), enable scrolling wallpaper/infinite scroll, enable landscape mode, change icons using icon packs, and more plethora of options.
Venom Tweaks app allows you to fully customize the colors of your status bar, notification panel, weather panel, and your overall Sense UI. Don’t forget you can also get some AOSP lockscreens with more options than you can imagine.
As a bonus, there’s even a 3-finger gesture that allows you to easily launch your favorite apps when you swipe 3 fingers up, down, left, or right. And yes, PIE Controls are on-board also so you will have endless option of shortcuts.
Those are just “some” of my favorite features on the ViperOne but there’s plenty more features to be discovered. The ROM itself has also been tweaked to give you much better performance and battery life over stock so if you are looking for a good Sense-based custom ROM that gives you 100% control over your HTC One, definitely give the latest ViperOne ROM a test drive over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!
