The Team Venom had come up with a new custom ROM for HTC One M9, namely the Viper One M9 3.0. As usual, this custom ROM is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and has some extra features made by the third-party developer team. Additionally, this ROM has features which is different from any other ROM the one feature I like the most is three finger gesture feature, using this feature you can perform gestures with three fingers of your hand and apply any action to it. To install it on your device you need some tools which are listed below.

The tools you need: a PC with internet connection, the custom ROM zip file is about 800 mb so downloading it from a PC is recommended to avoid any data cost. A USB cable used to connect your phone to your PC. Your phone, should be rooted and a custom recovery should be installed on it and make sure its latest so it can support Android 5.0 lollipop ROMs.
