Cloud Search HTC One variants [U/UL/WL]


As you probably know, HTC One came out in a few variants. I described these different versions here and here. To sum up:



The important part is, that users with U variant (GSM only) can use custom ROMs based on UL (GSM/LTE) RUU. It is already confirmed by one user, who flashed custom ROM based on 1.28.401.7 m7_ul software on his m7_u unit. Don't be confused - this probably won't enable LTE support on your GSM unit. We are not yet sure if it's possible at all, but it's very likely that once we have S-OFF and SuperCID for HTC One, flashing entire RUU from m7_ul on m7_u device may enable LTE support (of course your network provider has to support LTE as well).

I will keep you posted once I have some more details.

Thanks goodman_east for sharing some info with me!

Very happy about this. With the one x here in the states we had a limited amount of ROMs due to the hardware variations. This is much better news.

Thanks Mike

Probably yes, but most likely you won't be able to use LTE.

I am using new One in Taiwan. I already flash ARHD 3.5 in my M7-U new One, fantastic!
It's good to know that we can share xda ROM now. Thanks!

And here I was hours ago trying to insist that HTC One has only the same hardware and is universally flashable yet all users tend not to believe me and keep pointing out the One X & X+.

One X+ and One X have different chip (AP37 vs AP33), different partitions table (separate sdcard partition vs /data/media) and few other differences as well.

I know! lol yet they keep on insisting that the HTC One is the same until I gave up

Really wonder why some people who have insufficient knowledge on how things work tend to not believe advices given to them by someone who knows more than them.

but the one x+ international roms where not compatible with the at&t version, yet the hardware was identical.
was that because a kernel difference??

Was it? As far as I know Tegra 3 never had integrated LTE modem and it was a separate component on AT&T One X+. I may be wrong.
