There it is, the second custom ROM for HTC One M8 and from one of my favorite team, Team Venom. I only tried their ROM on HTC Sensation XE and belive me, that was one of the best ROMs I have ever tried. Everything was in the ROM, everything you required, Slider Shortcuts on Pull Down Menu so no need to open settings to activate Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. ROM was really smooth, while isntalling you have the option to over or underclock the CPU and GPU. Camers Shutter for Screenshots has been added, broken widgets and broken bloatware. Kernel is still stock because Custom Kernels were causing trouble for HTC One M8, bettery timing is still same as Stock ROM if not overclocked. HTC Boom Sound has been restored, happy news for all the fans becasue they start to like Venom Sound Enhancer and much more featureas are waiting for you. If you are interested in Other ROMs, you can Visit our Custom ROMs section Or you can install this ROM on your HTC One M8 by following our tutorial below.This is not an official release from HTC, but a Custom ROM, you need to install a Custom Recovery on your device to install it and also your device must be rooted.
But why would anyone goes for a Custom ROM instead of staying on the Stock On, allow me to explain. “Stock and Official ROMs are good, but they are created with keeping in mind the demands of all,some wants performance and some wants speed, some wants looks, some wants features. Putting them all in one ROM can cause Lag, Performance issues and bugs. But Custom ROM in basically designed for either Looks or Performance and Custom ROM gives speed and great performance with Tweaks and System Tools.”
