  • Jnoon312

    Thank you

  • No need to return to stock, You can flash the ROM right away!

  • Jnoon312

    I already have cyanogenmod on my m8. Can i install this or do i have to put a stock rom on my phone first?

  • Yes.

  • Antonio Eguia

    Does this work for an m8 at&t?

  • Yes, it works on all models. You’ll have to select your phone model while installing the ROM.

  • jesus

    will it work on sprint

  • Yes, it should be over 1GB.

  • annon

    you needed to switch fastboot off hd this issue myself and make sure debugging is on

  • annon

    should my file size download for the revolution rom be 1.4gb

  • Hmm, I guess you installed version 21 (4.4.4) which has this issue. Try this (4.4.3)

  • Georges Haddad

    ok I installed it but I lost wifi, what shoud I do? is there any other zip file to add for the install so that my wifi is back?

  • No, you’ll not lose root or custom recovery.

  • Georges Haddad

    if my M8 is rooted will I lose the root???

  • أيمن الكيلاني

    Does it work with m7 ??

  • disqus_t0VTQiJSzj

    It doesn’t support Sprint or Verizon yet.

  • Yes, you need to install the Xposed framework in Framework option and reboot the device, and then activate the Sense 6 Toolboox from Modules.

  • Chris

    You also have to make sure that the Xposed framewrok is installed and updated. Sense 6 toolbox will not work until that is done. I ran into the same problem.

  • Sense 6 is still in alpha phase but it works. I am sure about the T-Mobile M8.

  • Matthew Koenes

    I installed this on my t-mobile htc one m8 and none of the sense 6 toolbox options are working. I changed nearly every setting in it and nothing has changed at all. I saved my changes rebooted my phone and turned it off and on and still nothing. Anyone else have this problem?

  • Download the ViperOne ROM and install it:

  • Joshua Schroeder

    Is there a v method that does.

  • No.

  • Joshua Schroeder

    Does this work for an m8 on Verizon network?

  • Michael Bull

    That’s what I figured as well, someone did link to another post talking about Hboot but it did not make too much sense to me, could there be something wrong with my hboot that needs to be updated? This is way above me, hopefully more info will come out regarding my issue. Don’t want to brick this phone trying things I know nothing about. Thank you for taking the time!

  • If your phone is running stock ROM, it definitely has Sprint boot.img on it.

  • Michael Bull

    See link above

  • Michael Bull

    Can’t get this to work on my Sprint M8, after flashing the Rom, all appears to be fine, message says successful but when I try to reboot, it just brings be back to the Fastboot time after time where I have to go back and re-install my back-up. Can’t quite figure out what I am doing wrong. Think I followed all of the steps but no luck. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
