HTC One Android 4.3 software leaks, available as ROM


The HTC One’s Android 4.3 update should be ready to hit devices sometime before the end of September. If HTC is to keep its promise, that is. With the update coming so soon, we knew we would start seeing leaks and today we have the first one!

The leaked firmware belongs to the international HTC One and is leaked by ROM developer LlabTooFeR. Firmware version 3.09.401.1 is not a monumental improvement over the current version, but you will definitely see some cool changes and get the feel of Android 4.3.

Camera software is now improved with highlight reel features and better music syncing. In addition, you get all the features new in Android 4.3, including always-on Wi-Fi location scanning and OpenGL support. The task manager is also said to be a bit different, along with animations and sounds.

These are mostly aesthetic changes, but performance seems to be a bit faster and smoother. Like we said, this may not have you salivating, but it’s a great update to wait for… or not. You can actually get it now with the MaximusHD ROM. And soon you will also be able to get the pure firmware as a ROM, as well.

The developer states he will release the firmware on August 28 at 10 AM GMT, so get your fingers ready if you want to test the original firmware! As always, be very careful with rooting and ROMing your devices. Tinkering with your phone may harm your device and/or void your warranty. All responsibility will fall upon you, so you want to make sure you do your research and know what you are doing.

    Yes!! Now I hope devs can port the HTC camera to 4.3 Google Edition ROMs. I had a ported camera, but it was on a 4.2.2 ROM. =.S

    • Bud Lutz

      doesn’t look like it’s going to happen….4.2.2 GPE rom nearly mirrored the sense roms, which is why the camera could be ported. The 4.3 GPE rom is very different…’s to hoping it’s possible tho!

      • No_Nickname90

        Yea. I had went to the thread to see if there was any information about that. IT didn’t look like there was. It was stated something about the Sense framework being taken out of the 4.3 ROM and how the Camera/Gallery depended on the framework.

        Eh…? I hope something can happen. I want to use the Sense camera, but I also want to use my PS3 controller. LoL!!

        And stock Gallery is so horribly organized. =.S

        • LUFC4LIFE

          Won’t be long until you’ll be able to run GE and Sense with MoDaCo switch (I mean your own custom ones btw, not just stock)

          I can’t wait to have my customised GE for daily use and just reboot to my customised ARHD and Sense camera :)

  • knightsbore

    What i’m curious about is if they fixed the bluetooth stack. The HTC one is abysmal, and 4.3 introduces a radically rewritten one.

  • Philly Jim

    Actually several developers have had 4.3 ROMs up and running perfectly for a few weeks now…….and they are very solid also…….I’ve been running a port of cynogen 4.3 on my T MO S3 flawlessly for a couple weeks also…. smoothest build yet for my s3 takes away all lag …..extremely fluid…

    • Bart Heuts

      They are talking here about a Sense rom on 4.3, not AOSP 4.3.

      • Philly Jim

        Quietly crawling back to the corner … bad I should of known better , in my defense it was a 14 hr day……….

        • DDroid45

          lmao, u good brother this is a android community, tough luv kinda family around here

        • Marianne

          We’ll give the “of” instead of “have” a pass too then. ;)

  • domatau

    T-Mobile usa still stuck on 4.1!

    • Chad Vincent

      And we will be until this is ready. AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint all stopped 4.2 testing and are going straight to 4.3.

    • treypoundz

      That sucks my Verizon HTC one is running 4.2.2 out the box

  • DavidVarghese

    Nice! I guess HTC is serious about releasing 4.3 by the end of September…

  • toomuchgame441

    I already downloaded it… Contemplating just flashing it tonight, I think I may ;-)

  • patricia666

    like Marjorie explained I’m in shock that someone can earn $9232 in one month on the internet. did you see this webpage w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

  • Scott Stafford

    I wonder how long until Verizon gets it?

  • Megatron_Don

    ok… is it just me or does the girl in the picture above look like she’s squatting like she’s taking a piss and if so why is the user taking pictures of her. O_o

    • Marianne

      I almost peed muhself when I read that =x Nice catch! Er, maybe.

      • Megatron_Don

        Don’t have any accidents… i’ll laugh at ya :-)

        • Marianne

          Everybody my age pees their pants! It’s the coolest! You ain’t cool unless you pee your pants.

          • Megatron_Don

            I would be the uncoolest lol

          • Marianne

            I will not consider you Miles Davis then. :)

          • Megatron_Don

            those are big shoes to fill. it would take a Great Salt Lake amount of urine to make me a fraction of the cool that Davis is. just think if you add Coltrane with him. That level of cool would need alot of piss. lol

          • Megatron_Don

          • Marianne

            Haha, I’m glad I’ve re-established my street cred; if by street cred, I mean Phandroid cred.

          • Megatron_Don

            Street cred is nothing… Phandroid cred!!! Man that gang is crazy. I heard they smash any and everything Apple. The produce sections at the grocery stores aren’t too happy. :-)

          • Marianne

            Now I’m picturing the news team fight scene from Anchorman.

          • Megatron_Don

            Gangs of Android, Apple, Blackberry, Palm, and Windows. A Fight to the death. Steve Carell has to be with Android. “I killed a guy.” lol

          • Marianne

            with a trident!

  • Marianne

    Sweet! Can’t wait to put this on my rooted Veriz… oh wait. Yeah, I’ll probably get the pushed update before that happens.

  • rudyy

    My Google Play edition came with 4.2.2 and OTA’d to 4.3 a couple weeks ago.
