For those of you looking for an invite for OnePlus One or simply want to check out the OnePlus One’s software features, did you know you can essentially turn your HTC One M7 or M8 into OnePlus One by flashing CM11 ROM along with our HighOnAndroid OnePlus One conversion kit?

Don’t know what OnePlus One is?  See our OnePlusOne unboxing video here.

With latest CM11 ROM “Snapshot” M9, you can expect some great stability along with fast performance.  I think it is actually one of the fastest ROMs out “right now” along with great battery life, running great on both of my HTC One M7 and M8.  Even better, you can flash HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion kit to get almost every feature on OnePlus One on your HTC One.  You will get goodies like fully-working OnePlus One camera, Screencast app (screen recording with voice), OnePlus One “Hexo” theme, OnePlus One lockscreen, and rest of the features are part of CM11 ROM such as Privacy Guard and WhisperPush.  The only thing not working is OnePlus One’s screen-off gestures, something we are still working on.

Overall, this is a fun way to convert your phone into OnePlus One and check out what’s so cool about it so definitely give this combo a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

IMPORTANT! – If you have HTC One M7, you need to be running the latest CWM v6.0.4.8 or TWRP Recovery 2.7.1.0a to install CM11!!!  You can grab the latest CWM/TWRP here and install using Flashify app.

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Conversion Kit, and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)

          Snapshots are more or less stable than nightlies, well way more stable and you should find almost no bugs plus excellent battery life.

    Really good work. I flashed it on my ATT M7, i liked it. not much customization but good and smooth. phone felt faster, and the lock screen was really cool. Cant wait to have the real thing available for purchase without invite . might settle for a G3. lol.
