Great news for HTC One owners who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of CyanogenMod for the device. CyanogenMod 10.1 “nightlies” are now officially available for the AT&T and T-Mobile HTC One. The HTC One has been touted as one of the easiest devices to unlock, root, and flash a custom ROM onto since the Nexus 4.
Those of you familiar that “ROM life” (I’ve recently been sucked back in) know how this sorta thing works. Depending on your specific model, it’s as easy as jumping onto HTCDev.com, unlocking the bootloader, flashing ClockworkMod recovery, flashing CM10.1, flashing Gapps (Google apps), and you’re off to a custom AOSP good time. Well, for the most part.
Flashing CyanogenMod onto your HTC One will “remove” Sense 5 and yes, the much hated (but still very useful) BlinkFeed. Unfortunately, some of the One’s better known features such as IR blaster functionality and WiFI Calling for T-Mobile, are not working at the moment. Also, calling is a bit wonky as well.
I think it goes without saying that nightly builds aren’t the most stable of releases, so, as always — flash at your own risk. You can hit up the thread on XDA below for the full list of instructions as well as download links. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to root n’ flash this onto my HTC One Developer Edition to see what all the hype is about. Cheers.
