How to Install Viper 4 Android for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
1 – Open the Titanium Backup app on your device and tap on Backup/Restore tab.

Or, you can move the file to sd card as well, which is equivalent to freezing it and you can move it back to its original location if you like.
5 – Next, extract the Viper4Android .zip file which you downloaded from the above link. If you are downloading it on PC, then move .zip file to your mobile via USB cable.
6 – Now, move the audio_effects.conf file to /system/vendor/etc/ and select overwrite when asked. Don’t forget to give the file all necessary permissions from ‘Properties > Attributes’ when prompted.
7 – Install the ViPER4Android_N.apk on your device but don’t run it yet.
8 – Next, go to Magisk and tap on the hamburger menu icon in the top left corner of the screen where you need to tap on Downloads and locate ‘ViPER4Android’ module and install it.
9 – Once complete, reboot your device.
10 – That’s all.
