HOW TO: Install ViPER4Android on Android 10 / Android Q

From this guide, you will be able to install ViPER4Android on Android 10. If you are an Android enthusiast and looking forward to enhancing the sound system of your device, then you are on the right page. ViPER4Android is a sound mod available for Android devices, which boosts the audio performance with ease.

ViPER4Android is a very popular audio mod for Android since 2013, supports a wide range of devices and Android versions. But unfortunately, after Android 7.0 Nougat, the developer behind it left its further development. So, the newer version of Android won’t get official support from the original developer. But since this is 2020 and most of the Android device comes with Android 10, you won’t be able to use the ViPER4Android officially. But we have a different method to make this audio mod functional on Android 10 as well. Read ahead; we will guide you the entire process, providing all the necessary download links in order to run ViPER4Android on Android 10.

ViPER4Android for Android 10

If you try the older method to install ViPER4Android on Android 10, it won’t work as Android 10 has a lot of changes in its core functionality. The required driver will fail to configure as it is not updated for the recent Android builds.

So, how to install ViPER4Android on Android 10? To be honest, this process is quite tricky for novice users. It’s not like just flashing a single ZIP to get the mod installed on your device. But if you follow the entire steps correctly from our guide below, it will definitely work on your device. We had tested this on Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro / Mi 9T Pro running Android 10. It should work on other devices as well, which are running on Android 10. So let’s start!
