Say hello to Android L Developer Preview for HTC One


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is this?

This is a direct port of Android L Developer Preview, which was released for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013, WiFi). This is not a SDK port, this is the real deal!

How did you do it?

Magic! Just kidding, a lot of hard work went into porting everything. Special thanks to these mega awesome guys, this ROM would've not been possible if they didn't help us (make sure you thank them too):


sykopompos - For helping me out with ramdisk and providing useful tips
poondog - For helping me fix the graphical glitches in kernel (and yes, I am using his awesome kernel)
feltox and manups4e - For helping me in additional debugging of the builds


What works and what doesn't work?


At the moment, this port is in alpha stages. We are working really hard every day to fix the major issues quickly, but since this is a non-Nexus device, it's quite complicated to get things working smoothly. Half of the things work, half of the things don't work.

You are more than welcome if you want to help us in fixing bugs, together we can eliminate the bugs and fix issues faster

What doesn't work at the moment:

WiFi
Bluetooth
Data DATA WORKS NOW (thanks to @manups4e)
Sensors (except GPS)
Camera
Sound

What works at the moment:

Everything else as far as I know, but do let me know if you find anything else that doesn't work

Once again, this is currently in ALPHA stage and we are working to fix whatever is not working, so please don't spam this thread with posts like "Camera does nt work, what 2 do"

Screenshot



How to install:

Download the ROM
Place the ROM in your internal storage/SD card
Reboot into recovery (MUST BE LATEST TWRP/CWM)
Wipe the following partitions: cache, dalvik cache, data and system
Flash ROM
Reboot

First boot takes around 10-15 minutes

Download

ALPHA 2: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B64I...m9rVkU/preview

Changelog

10/8 - ALPHA #2
> Fixed data (3G/4G now works)

11/7 - ALPHA #1
> Initial build

FAQ

Q. Can I flash a custom kernel on top of it?
A. No, we use a heavily modified ramdisk and kernel, so if you flash another kernel the ROM will stop booting. DO NOT FLASH ANY CUSTOM KERNEL ON TOP OF THIS

Q. XYZ doesn't work
A. This ROM is currently in ALPHA stages so that is expected. On top of that, Android L is currently a developer preview so any bugs in the developer preview will show up on this port as well.

What is the kernel used? Maybe that is the main reason for most of the bugs since most of them are driver related issues.
