Both HTC One M7 and M8 have pretty stable CM12 ROM builds (in my opinion) with everything working out of the box, which means you can enjoy Android 5.0 Lollipop today. Of course, there will also be Sense and GPE (Google Play Edition) of Lollipop (that we will post soon) but in the meanwhile, check out CM12 as it’s solid as a 747. With CM12 ROM, your HTC One will be much faster than before as Lollipop brings performance improvements of 20-30% over KitKat. Also for HTC One, CM12 has everything working out of the box including full 1080P video support for both front/ba

Well, the latest version is better than ever, with a modded Liquid launcher that has Android L styled navigation buttons. For HTC One M8, you will also find a slew of great LiquidSmooth customization/features along with overclocking support up to 2.88Ghz! But I recommend overclocking only if you need the extra perfo

For this week’s HTC One ROM of the Week, check out LiquidSmooth ROM, available for both original HTC One M7 and the new HTC One M8. (BTW, this is my daily driver on my M8!) Based on latest Android 4.4.4, you will get blazing speeds, great battery life, and countless number of great customization options. I know some of you swear by GPE (Google Play Edition) but GPE has hardly any customization/shortcuts you can do compared to something like LiquidSmooth ROM. The latest version of LiquidSmooth seems to run super smooth and also even comes with custom kernel fo
For this week’s HTC One ROM of the week, check out MIUI ROM, available for any GSM-based HTC One (AT&T, T-Mobile, Unlocked, International) and Sprint. Based on Android 4.2.2 Sense firmware, MIUI ROM brings you all the goodness of MIUI UI, a load of free themes to choose from all the while keeping your core Sense features like Sense camera, TV Remote app, and much more. Now keep in mind development on MIUI ROM is a bit slower (as they are trying to support multiple devices) so KitKat will be here eventually, just not yet.
For this week’s HTC One ROM of the Week, check out AICP ROM. Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, AICP (Android Ice Cold Project) ROM is a solid performer that gives custom ROMers a tons of customization and options with Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

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).
