HTC has pushed out official Android 4.4 KitKat Sense 5.5 update to unlocked and international versions of HTC One couple days ago. For AT&T and T-Mobile users, if you are not rooted, you will probably have to wait another month or two.
But for those of you rooted, you can simply grab the stock version in a zip file format and flash with the latest version of TWRP recovery v188.8.131.52. Yes, you can install this on any GSM HTC One including AT&T, T-Mobile, unlocked, and international.
This is probably also the preferred method for rooted users as you will not lose your custom recovery nor have to re-root your HTC One through HTCDev.com’s painstinking(yes I made that up) unlock process.
This is 100% stock version, just made into a zip format you can flash using TWRP recovery. Do not use CWM recovery as it’s not compatible.
Not much has changed as far as UI goes since Android 4.3 but Android 4.4 upgrade brings you lots of under-the-hood performance improvements and you should also be able to get much better battery life.
Overall, I am very satisfied HTC was really quick about updating their Sense to Android 4.4 KitKat as many other companies like Samsung are still working on that. So, if you are into Sense and want the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, grab the zip file and do let me know what you think!
To install this ROM, you NEED TO USE TWRP Recovery 184.108.40.206 or higher!!! You can use Goo Manager App on Play Store to update. If for some reason you cannot update using Goo Manager, you can grab the image file over here and install using fastboot manually like you did when rooting your phone. The command is “fastboot flash recovery recovery.img” and replace recovery.img with the actual image file name.
To install ROM, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset (unless coming from stock Sense ROMs), install ROM, install SuperSU, and reboot!
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! )
