Q: Where's my lock screen?
A: For some reason, HTC chose to disable it by default. Go into security settings and enabled slide, pin, whatever. While you're in there, you may want to enable lock screen widgets as well.
Q: How do I get that sweet launcher from the Nexus 5? I thought that came with KitKat?
A: It's currently only for Nexus 5, however it will install just fine on this ROM. Get it here.
The following questions are quite outdated and will be hidden:
Q: Can so and so feature from Sense be ported to this ROM?
A: Most likely no, you'll have to find a third party solution in the Play Store, or if none exists, live without the feature or return to Sense.
Q: Does the IR blaster work?
A: Yes, it is working as of the 4.3 update!
Q: How do I remove the 3-dot legacy menu?
A1: Download TricksterMod Kernel app from the Play Store, scroll to Specifics, 'Screen Wake Control', switch on 'Disable 3Dot Menu', hit the check mark at the top right, and reboot your phone.
A2: Alternatively, if you know how to edit your build.prop with Root Explorer or something comparable, add "qemu.hw.mainkeys = 1" to the bottom of the file, save and reboot.
Q: Is the included kernel the official GPe ROM kernel?
A: Yes, it is the stock kernel with the ramdisk edited to be debuggable and insecure.
Q: Is the camera quality better or worse than Sense?
A: The OS gets the exact same raw data from the sensor in this ROM as it does in Sense, so the difference is in post processing. It is generally agreed that the photos are comparable to Sense except in really low light, where Sense's post processing is a little bit better.
Q: I don't have an English keyboard? How do I proceed?
A1: As a workaround, you can use the Korean keyboard to type English to get far enough into the Play Store and download an alternative keyboard.
A2: Alternatively, if you know how, you can switch your CID to GOOGL001 and the keyboard should show up now.
Q: How do I take a screenshot?
A: Press and hold power + volume down (at the same time) and don't let go until the screenshot animation and sound play (it will be obvious, takes perhaps a little over 1 second of holding down the buttons).
Q: Has anyone made such and such theme/mod/feature?
A: It would be prudent to check the correct respective forum first (i.e 'Themes and Apps' for themes, 'Original Development' for kernels, etc.)
Q: Can this get OTA updates directly?
Q: Is Google Wallet compatible?
A: Not at the moment, and most likely it won't ever be as the HTC One is missing the hardware secure element required by Wallet.
