Install Google Edition Stock Android On HTC One [Tutorial]

It delivers complete stock Android experience, and unlike other custom ROMs out there (CyanogenMod, AOKP, PA etc.), does not come with a host of “broken features” or bugs. You get fully working LTE, very decent camera quality, SD card functionality, and even a Beats Audio driver that actually works. The only missing element is the lack of accurate mobile data usage monitoring, but you can get that through a variety of free apps available over at the Google Play Store.

The ROM requires a rooted device with a custom recovery installed (both CWM and TWRP are supported). TWRP is generally more preferable thanks to certain features that CWM lacks. The ROM is also only compatible with GSM versions of HTC One. You can follow how to unlock HTC One Bootloader right here, Make sure you have HTC USB driver for One configured on your machine.

Before we delve into the actual flashing procedure, be warned that any custom ROM would not only void your warranty, but you solely are also responsible for any damage that may happen to your device. While tested and proven to be safe, New Techie cannot be held liable for any damage to your HTC One as a result of following these instructions.

Step 1: Download the ROM from here and save it to the SD card in your HTC One.

Step 2: Boot your HTC One into Recovery by pressing the Power and Volume down buttons, and do a factory reset/wipe data.

Step 3: Go to Install ZIP From SD Card, followed by Choose ZIP From SD Card, and flash the ROM package.

Step 4: Once the flashing is complete, reboot the device.

That’s it – you have successfully turned your HTC One to a Google Edition device.
