You asked for it and we brought it. A review of ViperROM for the EVO 3D, thought by some to currently be the best ROM for the HTC EVO 3d. Obviously, only you can make that decision, but I’ll tell you this. I’ve tried every ROM that’s been released for the EVO 3D and this is easily my favorite of the bunch. All the tweaks I could want have been implemented, it looks great, but most of all, it works. No lag. No freezing. Nothing. It just works. And when it comes to a great ROM, that’s what you want to see.
Check out the video for the full scoop on this great EVO 3D ROM. Downloads and full details below.
And if you haven’t yet, we’ve got you covered on how to root the EVO 3D.

If you downloaded viperROM RC1.2 before 1:30PM EST 8/1, the build.prop is wrong and still shows RC1.1. If you want to change it, just change it through Root Explorer or extract this file, delete the old /system/build.prop, copy in the new one, and reboot. If you downloaded it after 1:30PM EST 8/1, it is changed in the ROM.
