    I have a HTC one phone and I’m in love with my phone. The problem is that I’ve moved from up North to the South. Sprint is worthless here so I’m trying to flash my HTC so that i can go to at&t. Can you help?

      You can’t use a Sprint phone on AT&T’s network. Sprint runs on PCS and does not use SIM cards (PCS is not GSM). AT&T uses GSM phones that require SIM cards.

      Sprint phones can be unlocked for use outside the U.S., even if you unlocked it, it wouldn’t work on AT&T or T-Mobile.

    As I have used many xperia, samsung phones before I got HTC One(M7) the best rom for me is still Slimrom (currently SlimKAT 4.4.4) with doc3000’s Sound Explosion Mod. Compared to ViperOne, SlimKAT is 144MB + ~50MB minimal gapps while viperOne is 1,3 GB. Ok ok, Viper has all options to remove stuff before installing, while Slim has the option in Settings menu to remove any app after rom install. (there’s about 16 apps total on clean insall :D) so it is very slim. and has the PIE too if wondering… 🙂

    I would like to suggest you review both OSE rom as well as Dirty Unicorns. I have played around with both and I am sure users would benefit from learning about both roms. They both are solid and reliable daily drivers. As an aside I just moved to liquidsmooth from CodefireX which I found to be rock solid but I was in need of a change. I found your review of liquidsmooth to be most helpful in discovering tweaks that make it a more pleasant experience.

    Thank you

    I have the M8, and i’m not that tech savvy, but i can follow instructions. I love my phone to bits, so the thought of rooting and installing a rom was a bit of a worry. Any how, I managed to root by following instructions, I was so excited playing with a few buttons I wiped my OS off the phone, so after panic and stress, I downloaded a new OS on card, and installed like that. “i didn’t know it was as easy as it was”
    I installed Venom, I am 43 and still get excited when i get something new. i have to say the overall massive difference for my phone is battery life. and the best way to describe it is by suggesting, its like buying a new 4000mh battery. I am really am surprised.
    The tweaks are just fab, so many its unreal, it took me a few time to get it right, as i found one setting may just not work right with another, although now I have got my phone set up and its sound.
    I installed LMT and that has changed the way I use the phone, the fan pops out instant access to what ever i choose its amazing. a real must have
    i donated some cash, as i think its very important to donate some cash to the individuals who you are letting you use the software. the Venom for me is spot on. Turned my M8 into a M9 in my opinion.

    Hello, I installed viperone on my M8 HK from sprint and it works awesome! however, whenever I listen to music, once the screen goes off, the sounds gets all distorted. it seems to not happen with pandora though, any other music apps does it. and it only happens when the screen locks. once the phone is unlocked, the sound works fine again.
