Question [Q] HTC One Sense UI / Launcher

Hi im not sure if this has been asked before or not, but i just wanted to know if it is possible to run a different launcher or UI on the HTC One? I am trying to make the decision to buy one after too many faulty Nexus 5's. What i would find ideal is to have the HTC One running Android KitKat 4.4.2 with Nova Launcher, is this possible? Also what are some of the best custom kernels one would recommend, i am used to Dev's like Franco & Faux, anything out there as good if not better for the HTC One??

Thanks in advance

Yes you can use any launcher you want. AFAIK the sense widgets won't work with them though

Great, thanks. Have you already got your KitKat update? How long does it usually take to get the Android updates on this device?

Not long at all if your installing ROMS. We don't usually wait as long as non root users so for updates. That's why I don't usually bother with update times when picking an android device because I'll always be a root user and get updates before everybody else.

For all I know everybody is praising HTC for they're quick update times on the One. I'm not 100% sure but I believe we recieved KitKat before any other Android device (Besides the Nexus 5 ofcourse)
