Nightlies Mirror

Here are the unofficial releases of our ROM. These get automatically uploaded every night.
You can check the changes in the changelog. The nightlies may not be 100% stable, if you want a
stable release, you're best off sticking to the official releases.

SVN Trunk

We use SVN to host our ROM project. This means you can
stay up to date with the ROM change by change. If you can't wait for the official
releases this lets you download the rom the minute we make a change to it.
It also stops you needing to download the full 800mb ROM every time, as it
downloads only the changed files for that particular revision.

For a guide on setting up the SVN, please check here

One of our users, @djwhitey created a .bat script that automates exporting the SVN files from your local repo and creates a flashable zip - you can find it here

SVN Guide

How to set up SVN for Windows

Step 1-3 is only for people who haven't set up the SVN yet, if you have already set up and just want to update to the newest revision, go to step 4

You will need:
  • A PC running a newish version of Windows
  • Tortoisesvn, choose 32 or 64 bit depending on your OS
  • An archive program, i recommend winrar

1. Setting up folder structure.

Once you have TortoiseSVN set up and installed, browse to a directory where you would like your ROM to be stored
Once your in that directory create a new folder and name it "HTC One"
Go inside that folder and create two more folders, name one "renovate-m7" and the other "renovate-flashable"

You don't have to use these names, it just makes things less confusing if you do.

To give you an idea on what these folders will do, "renovate-m7" is where you will download/update the rom/files to each time we make an update. Once you are up to date or at a revision you want to flash you then export the rom to "renovate-flashable" ready to flash on your device.

2. Downloading the ROM

Once you have completed step one, it is time to download the ROM.
Right click on the "renovate-m7" folder and click "SVN Checkout". The following image should appear

From here you will need to enter the url of the renovate rom project.
The link is which can also be found in the first post
Go ahead an enter the URL and press go

If all done correctly the ROM should start downloading, this could take a while depending on your internet speed. This is the one and only time you will have to download the full 800mb rom.

Once it has finished you will be left with the rom structure inside the "renovate-m7" folder. You can tell if everything has synced correctly as there will be a green tick on the folder icon.

3. Exporting and zipping

Open "renovate-m7" and you will see the rom structure. Your instincts will probably tell you to add this to a zip and then just flash on your phone, but as this is the folder linked with the SVN, there are hidden files which we don't want to include when we put it in our ready to flash.
To get rid of these hidden files, all you need to do is right click "renovate-m7" folder, go to "tortoiseSVN" then click "export".

This will open a new window asking you to choose where to extract to, simply locate your "renovate-flashable" folder, click it, and click "select folder" to begin exporting

Once the export has finished, your going to want to zip up the rom so you can flash it.
Open "renovate-flashable" and select all the folders and the boot.img
If you have winrar installed click "add to archive"
This will open a dialogue, all you need to do is set the the format to ".zip" not ".rar", choose a name for the zip and choose where to save it
Once you have done this click ok to start the zipping
Once finished this is your completed, simply transfer this to your phones memory and flash in recovery

4. Updating

If we make an update to our rom, svn users can stay up to date change by change, and only by downloading the modified files, not the entire rom everytime.
To update to the latest revision all you need to do is right click on "renovate-m7" and select "SVN Update"

This will update all the changed files to the latest version, keepin you up to date.
Once the update is complete, you'll have to export the rom again (step 3) before zipping it up and flashing.
Before you export though, make sure you delete the previous revision from "renovate-flashable"

Once the old build is deleted, simply follow the "exporting" step again and you will be up to date with all the latest changes.

How to set up SVN for Mac OS

You will need:

• An Intel based Mac
Xcode or Command Line tools for your version of OSX

1) You need the command line tools to be installed in order to export the ROM once the source has been downloaded. To do this you will need to complete only one of the next options.

a) Command Line Tools via Xcode

Xcode is a 1.6GB download and if all you need is the command line tools then I strongly recommend you use option B. Download and install Xcode, once completed via the preferences download the command line tools;


b) Command Line tools via the Apple Developer Site.

This method you will require an Apple Developer ID, its free to sign up and if you already have an Apple ID, you can use that. Sign up and search for command line tools, select the correct version for your OSX version, download and install.

2) Next you need to installed svnX and connect it to the Renovate repository, hit the + button on the Repositories window and enter the details;

Name: Whatever you would like to call it.
User: <n/a>
Password: <n/a>

3) Once the details are entered, click the entry to open the repository;

4) Select the revision you wish to download, this will mostly be the latest version, then click the Checkout button.

5) Select where you wish to download the ROM to and svnX will begin the download. Remember this location, as we will require it later. You don’t see progress indicated unless you click the Output button, this will show the current file being downloaded and a progress indicator at the bottom.

Once complete the source is now copied to your Mac, now time to export the code ready for archiving.

In this example I downloaded the files to:

6) Open up terminal and navigate to the location where you would like export the ROM to:
cd /Users/Guy/Downloads/android-sdk/ROMs/Renovate/Exported
7) Then run ‘svn export’ on the director where you downloaded the files to:
svn export /Users/Guy/Downloads/android-sdk/ROMs/Renovate/One
This will clean all of the comments and other revision files from the files and make them ready for archiving.

8) Navigate to the directory where you exported the ROM to, select all the files, right mouse and select compress;

Once the archive has been created, copy to your phone and flash as normal via recovery.

When its time to update your local copy, open svnX and follow steps 3 through 8.

How to use RENOVATER

We've made it super easy for our users to stay up to date with the latest changes. The rom includes a script that will download the latest revision to your phone, then zip it up for you so you can flash it. All you need to do is open the terminal app included and type "su" then hit enter to run the script as root. Then type "renovater" and follow the simple instructions!

Stock kernel

Here is the stock 2.24.401.8 kernel for Renovate ROM

Update Zip

Here is an empty that allows easy modification of any file in the rom, Simply copy your modified file(s) to the correction location in the zip and flash in recovery

The Theme Post


Thanks to @mikrosmile, we are able to offer many of our theme customisations via myHub. There are already a number of options in there, to customise battery, statusbar, Prism, boot anim and splash screens, and we will soon be adding a section for full themes as well.

Most of the other mods detailed below can also be downloaded from myHub

Renovate icon packs

There are 4 Renovate icon packs, which can be downloaded and installed via the myHub app. However, you will still need to select the icon pack using the launcher of your choice.

These icon packs will work with most 3rd party launchers (Apex, ADW, Nova etc), and can also be used with Sense thanks to ruqqq's Icon Themer Xposed mod. Unfortunately, the free version of the app is not compatible with the latest Xposed framework (2.3.1). You will either need to purchase the latest version of the app from Play store (now called Unicon), or stick to Xposed 2.2 to keep using the free version. Sorry about that, but these are factors beyond our control.

Additional Xposed instructions

To use the Icon Themer with Sense, you will need to install the Xposed framework first:

Use the AROMA option in the rom installer to install the Xposed framework
Once the ROM has booted, open the Xposed Installer in the app drawer
CLick the Install/Update button, and then reboot
After rebooting, install the Icon Themer apk from ruqqq's thread
You should get prompted to activate his module, but if not open the Xposed installer again and click on the modules tab
Click the Icon Themer entry and choose the desired icon pack
Soft reboot when prompted and your icon pack should be applied
The applied icon pack will persist through further reboots
You only need to reapply the icon pack if you have installed a new app, updated an existing app or reflashed the rom


With the first icon pack, each app icon is made by hand so apps not included in the theme will need to be added manually. People are welcome to request app icons that aren't included using the request form available here, but there's no guarantee how quickly they will be added!

The other two icon packs apply an underlay to the app's own icon, so you shouldn't have any missing icons. If using the Sense Icon Themer, you will need to reapply the icon pack to catch newly installed or updated apps.

Renovate 3rd party notification icon pack

Those running the Renovate theme will have noticed that 3rd party notification icons (those in the left of the statusbar) remain annoyingly white and unthemed. Well, thanks to @agentdr8's coding skills, we can now finally address these too.

You need to install his Xposed mod, Xposed Statusbar Mods, download the icon pack from the myHub app and put the zip in sdcard/xsbm folder.

Detailed instructions

Install the mod, and place the icon theme zip in the folder as described
In the XSBM app, choose the Icon Settings option
Import the Renovate icon pack
Make sure "3rd-Party apps" is checked
Press back twice to exit the app, and choose Apply on the confirmation box
Statusbar will restart, with nicely themed notification icons

Haven't got many in the pack yet, mainly Google apps, but am happy to take requests. Just post them here, along with the icon taken from your desired app (keep the existing icon name, and add the app name as well), and ideally the app's package name as well.

Renovate TWRP theme

There is also an official Renovate TWRP theme, which you can download from the myHub app. To use it, just put the whole in the TWRP/theme folder on your sdcard (you might need to create the theme folder if it's not already there).


The opening TWRP splash curtain can't be changed using a theme, but if you want to fully Renovate your recovery, @SoLdieR9312 has made a fully themed flashable zip for TWRP - again, available via myHub.

Additional theme modifications

@SoLdieR9312 also has some additional theme modifications (wallpapers, splash screens, boot anims etc) on his website

Signature Banners

Feel free to add one of our banners to your signature to show support for Renovate ROM (thanks to @jonas2295)
