Team Venom has released the update for Viper Series Custom ROM, the updated version is 3.1.4, if you happened to install Viper S 3.1.2/3 on your HTC Sensation/ Sensation XE, you might have received the update last night, but somehow even after downloading the OTA, it can’t be installed just like that. So, the best way to update is to download it manually form the official server and install it on your device. Update from 3.1.2 to 3.1.3 is only of 10MB with a little bit enhanced performance and bug fixes. You can either install the OTA or install the full ROM on your choice.
