and always getting help regarding anything i ever needed, except for HTC one max.
There is no clear RUU /OTA store. and personally , I didn't find even the shipped RUU for my device. the international version.
i refresh this forum so often everyday, and all i see , is the same outdated threads .
is it so hard to find ruus for the HTC one max? why it is so difficult?
believe me, i respect you all...
but it is really frustrating to own such great device, and all you can get is minimalistic/outdated mods... couple of custom roms, not more than 5 or 6
The problem really goes down to the fact that this device is so amazing yet does not have a good level adaptation and marketing.
Moving from HTC One to a MAX i could understand your frustration, one of the BIG reason why the dev activity was slow here were the unavailability of kernel sources and only recently it was available. you would have seen couple of high quality devs working active here to get AOSP out for the device.
on the context of old threads, we are very close to the 4.4.2 update release which kind of makes the devs wait for the update so that they could work on them instead of 4.3.
It is true that the international MAX does not have an RUU available in public, i don't know much on public distribution of RUU's by HTC. I thought RUU's were only for the service centers to restore the phone.
For the international MAX, there has been only one OTA from the stock shipped ROM. The Stock ROM was 1.19.xxx.x and the OTA upgraded it to 1.54.xxx.x which was only minor, but i do appreciate having an repository and that is the reason why i posted a stock ROM.
As for the ROM's, personally i am happy having stock,hanks to Xposed! Viper has quite an awesome collection of tweaks on the ROM.
If you are interested in mod's you could try the mod's from original HTC One forum and afaik it should work.
