Today, we are going to talk about the best method to install Viper4Android on Android Nougat 7.0 devices. With each new Android update, it’s getting harder to install MODs. However, due to the popularity of the Viper4Android Audio Mod, developers got together to work on a MOD that works on latest Nougat 7.0 firmware.
Previous Viper4Android MODs for Android Lollipop and Marshmallow got broken by the firmware update with security patch. But the process of installing Viper4Android on older versions is still very complex for normal user to understand and implement. But thanks to the work and effort put in by the Android developers over there at XDA, we finally have a working Viper4Android MOD for Android 7.0 running device that’s lot more easy than the previous installation methods.
Those who don’t know much about it, Viper4Android is the king of all sound mods on Android. Viper4Android is the preferred choice of many Android users when it comes to top quality audio mods used to enhance the sound output, especially on devices that come with below par speakers. Another aspect that gives Viper an edge over other similar sound mods is its ability to work on any Android device. Unlike Dolby or Beats audio mods, that are device specific and need to be ported to work on non-supported devices, you can use Viper4Android on any Nougat 7.0 running smartphone or tablet to get rich music experience without spending money on upgrading device speakers or improved hardware.
