General about Kernels and Roms
Sorry for me not understanding everything regarding kernels and roms but had some questions.
Why can't new ROMs be built with Android 4.3 for the HTC One for Verizon? I know a developer was saying that HTC needs to release the source code/kernel until it could be built.
- Side note: how are the other roms able to port Sense 5.5 into HTC One already (I Believe its from HTC One Max)? From what I understand Sense 5.5 is not out yet for regular users. Wouldn't you need the kernel/source for Sense 5.5 to port it or is it because there is already source for 4.2.2 (which the HTC One Max runs on) that is why they can port Sense 5.5, just move over the changed files....?
If that's the case how come there are Android 4.3.1 AOSP ROMS for the HTC One like Vanir, CM2, Mokee. Is it because they are built from AOSP? So because the AOSP source is open then that's why we can build those AOSP roms?
