All you proud owners of the HTC One will be happy to learn that one of the most popular custom ROMs for Android is now available for your device. Well, all unlocked models of the HTC One at least. The popular developers behind CyanogenMod have finally released a nightly build of CM10.1 for the handset. Say goodbye to Sense, and Blinkfeed.
The HTC One runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and HTC’s ‘new Sense’ which is better than their previous UI overlay, but it’s still not stock Android that many love. You’ll be losing Blinkfeed and many other aspects of HTC’s software, but will be able to enjoy the absolute latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean instead.
Of course with CyanogenMod Android 4.2 Jelly Bean has tons and tons of customizations, tweaks, settings and more that makes it one of the best ROM’s around, so that’s a major plus too. The developers took to XDA and confirmed the nightly builds have pushed out to servers, and will be available for download soon. Also, this is a nightly build, and not a stable M release of the custom ROM.
Earlier this week CyanogenMod announced stable RC1 milestone builds of Android 4.2.2 CM10.1 for over 40 devices, and while the One isn’t on the list, it is now officially being supported by nightly updates. As expected you’ll need to unlock that bootloader at HTCDev, get a custom recovery, and flash the lastest CM zip and Google apps to be up and running. For those looking for more information hit the XDA link below to enjoy some vanilla Android on that HTC One. No details on Beats Audio support, or the UltraPixel camera, so we’ll update when we know more.
