For this week’s ROM of the week, check out CM11 with latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat for your HTC One, available for all variants including GSM international/unlocked/AT&T/T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.
I’ve been trying many other AOSP ROMs in the last week or so but haven’t found one that gives you as much stability (with everything working out of the box) so I kept going back to CM11, which has already passed its M3 milestone (meaning it’s stable), and highly recommended for those of you who want to experience custom ROMs without bugs (or minimal).
With latest CM11, you will be able to experience all of the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat along with the ability to install new custom kernels (that can give you new features like BLN, Swipe2Wake, undervolting and more). Most custom kernels for AOSP ROMs are currently more compatible with CM11 builds so you may want to try CM11 if you are into trying custom ROMs. For GSM/AT&T/T-Mobile/International users, I recommend teaMSeven’s CM11 kernel here. For Sprint users, try Thoravukk kernel. (Installing kernel is easy, just make a backup ROM before you install it in CWM or TWRP, then flash the kernel zip file and reboot!)
Overall, CM11 Android 4.4.2 KitKat is the way to go if you want to really experience custom ROMs so definitely give it a try (if you haven’t tried CM11 yet) and let me know how it went. (And try some custom kernels too for more features.)
Download Android 4.4.2 Gapps (DO NOT USE OLDER GAPPS!!!)
YOU MUST USE CWM RECOVERY 126.96.36.199 OR HIGHER or TWRP RECOVERY 188.8.131.52 OR HIGHER. YOU CAN USE ROM MANAGER(CWM) OR GOO MANAGER(TWRP) APP FROM PLAY STORE TO UPDATE YOUR RECOVERY.
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
Download Flash Player APK (if you want flash player use with Dolphin browser)
DownloadAndroid 4.3 PhotoSphere (if you want photosphere, but may force close so make a backup of your Gallery app using Titanium Backup app before installing! )
If you want to run your apps in tablet/hybrid/custom DPI mode, see our Xposed App Settings guide.
