Install C-ROM v5.9 Android 4.4.2 Kit-Kat On T-Mobile HTC One [Guide]


Custom ROMs based on Android 4.4.2 are available for almost all the devices, which have received the update of Android Jelly Bean as their last update and even for some Android 4.0.4 devices too. Mostly it is available as CM11 ROM, while flagship devices are getting even higher rank in Custom ROMs. But no matter what you give the users, they won’t be satisfied until they receive all the good features from multiple ROMs in one Firmware, well it is not possible to put all of them in one ROM. But most of them can be ported in One ROM, but still some of the ported features are PIE controls, Halo, Floating Window, Dark Theme, Active Display, Gesture anywhere, on-the-go mode, lock screen notifications, animation controls, further more you can find in the list below.

While on the other hand, Android 4.4.2 offers some of the amazing features itself, video recording, Google Wallet, 14% less memory usage, NFC emulation, Cloud printing and the best Google Home Launcher. If you are interested in Other ROMs, you can Visit our Custom ROMs section Or you can install this ROM on your T-Mobile HTC One by following our tutorial below. This is not an official release from HTC, but a Custom ROM, you need to install a Custom Recovery on your device to install it and also your device must be rooted.


But why would anyone goes for a Custom ROM instead of staying on the Stock On, allow me to explain. “Stock and Official ROMs are good, but they are created with keeping in mind the demands of all,some wants performance and some wants speed, some want looks, some want features. Putting them all in one ROM can cause a Lag, performance issues and bugs. But Custom ROM is basically designed for either Looks or Performance and Custom ROM gives speed and great performance with Tweaks and System Tools.”
