The following are custom firmware packages that use the hboot 1.54 (bootloader) from the Google Edition version of the HTC One. Since it is from the Google Edition, the HTC branding has been removed from the bootloader screen. It also has a nice dark look to it rather than the bright white one that is the HTC stock version.
The source thread of that dump is here.

This basically means the latest firmware packages but modified to contain the GE hboot which gives the Dark Bootloader look.

Not compatible with Sprint or Verizon

S-OFF Only!

This is for only M7 UL or M7 U Devices

This mod just uses the hboot file (version 1.54) from the above dump inserted into the newly released firmware versions.
The hboot file is the bootloader of the system and since the hardware functioning of both models is the same, parts of their firmwares are interchangeable.

Since this hboot is coming from a Google Edition there is no red warning text on the bootloader and you don't have to run one of the modified hboot files to remove it.

All these firmware packages are prepared the same. Since we don't want to overwrite our custom recovery or kernel, I have pulled the stock recovery and stock kernel out, so no change to either and no data loss. If a firmware contains a new touchscreen driver that will mandate a update of your custom recovery I will make note and possibly just bundle the firmware with the update recovery (CWM or TWRP). So far the 2 packages that do contain a new touchscreen driver have not required an update to custom recoveries.
The stock radio image for each firmware is left in the package, so if you want to change your firmware version without changing your radio, simply open the firmware zip file and delete the radio.img from the zip before flashing.

Anyone interested in the different partitions of the HTC One to see exactly what is contained in some of these firmware packages look here:
Partition list Info from SneakyGhost. He shared that info here

Here is a screenshot of what the Dark Bootloader looks like. The RADIO and OS versions will match the firmware package. This shows the first version:

DarkBootloader.jpg



These will work as is for most MID's and CID's. You should open the android-info.txt file within the firmware zip and make sure your MID and CID is listed. Get your current MID and CID with this fastboot command:
Code:
fastboot getvar all
If yours is not listed you will need to add your CID or MID to the android-info.txt file inside the zip files I provided. Just extract the file from the zip download and edit one of the entries found in the file to your CID/MID. Save the file and then add it back to the zip. I would delete the existing android-info.txt file from within the zip before re-adding the updated one back.

Instructions for Flashing:

Boot to bootloader:
Code:
adb reboot-bootloader
Reboot RUU mode via fastboot:
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
Flash the firmware:
Code:
fastboot flash zip 3.17.502.3_firmware_darkboot.zip
After it finishes, execute the command again to complete the flash:
Code:
fastboot flash zip 3.17.502.3_firmware_darkboot.zip
Output should look something like this:
Code:

Now you can type reboot you are all set.

Disconnect the cable and go back into the bootloader to see the new dark theme and also notice that when you boot up there is a little lock symbol at the bottom of your splash screen that indicates your bootloader status. If you want the Dark/Inverted splash screen I have shown on my phone it can flashed separately from here.
Just install from recovery.


Here is the Bootloader Status Icon:

Enjoy, but remember - Flash at your own risk. This firmware from the 4.3 dump changes very important bootloader partitions on your phone. Make sure you have working ADB with updated drivers.

*****NOTE - The hboot in these firmware packages contains hboot 1.54 which I understand doesn't work with fastboot commands on Windows 8.1 until you have installed the Intel USB 3.0 drivers. See HERE

Another change from this mod is that when your phone is turned off, it will now show a battery status image when charging:

Enjoy the new Dark Bootloader Firmware Packages.

Looks like adb not working on 4.3, my device shows offline, not sure why i just flash the 2.24 fw this morning before flashing the GE 4.3

---------- Post added at 10:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:06 PM ----------

No problems with recovery because the Touch drivers are not updated.

thanks but i posted a while ago my device is offline, cant figure why, usb debug is already enable, i used 2 different usb ports and cable still showing offline and i just tried my other laptop, i type adb devices, still shows offline

ADB is working fine for me after flashing either of these. I didn't need to update the sdk or anything but maybe you should try. In general the changes made here should not have an affect on ADB.

If you already have 4.3, then you shouldn't be flashing this! Try the 4.3 thread.

Yo dude, thanks for putting together that neat package and thread.
Was gonna drop that stuff in my thread anyway. Just too busy at work these days so hadn't had a chance. Hope you don't mind if I take this or parts of it tomorrow when I update my thread.
Talk to me if that's an issue. I'll leave credits of course.

    This happened to me, I ended up re downloading the drivers. Once, I did that I went ahead and continued on to doing the process. Even if it still shows offline, you can boot in to Fastboot. The volume down and power button way.. It'll come back tho, nothing to worry about. This process to 4.3 via RUU, gave me a couple issues at first, but got it working after a bit of playing around. I got my phone to a point that my bootloader wouldn't come up and I had 4 triangle exclamation points on the each 4 corners of my screen... 8)

    The 4.2.2 GE RUU brought me back to life tho. :)

    Good Luck!!

    I see now. It still shouldn't matter. You should be able to use this package to get the 3.06.1700.10 bootloader files. Unless your on a non GSM One like from Sprint as I believe the partition layout is different for that phone, it should work.

    did everything as stated and at the very end it says it's finished total time: 21.347 seconds, however on the phone it looks like its stuck at 99% with the green bar and when i try adb reboot bootloader it just says error device not found...

    edit: just unplugged the cable and it went to the black hboot screen and i just held the power button and restarted and everything seems normal, so i think i'm still good lol

    just like firmawre flashes, the greenbar won't fill 100%.
    you can't adb reboot in ruu mode, you have to fastboot reboot

    The 99% is normal. I think it's fastboot reboot-bootloader tho

    Thank you for this, crushalot. It worked great, and I love the new bootloader/Hboot. Nice work sir!

    While I do get the black bootloader screen, for whatever reason, I still get a WHITE splash screen with a black unlock symbol. Weird, wonder what happened...?

      OKAY [ 17.818s]
      finished. total time: 19.882s

      Now you can type reboot you are all set.

      Disconnect the cable and go back into the bootloader to see the new dark theme and also notice that when you boot up there is a little lock symbol at the bottom of your splash screen that indicates your bootloader status. If you want the Dark/Inverted splash screen I have shown on my phone it can flashed separately from here.
      Just install from recovery.


      Here is the Bootloader Status Icon:

      Enjoy, but remember - Flash at your own risk. This firmware from the 4.3 dump changes very important bootloader partitions on your phone. Make sure you have working ADB with updated drivers.

      *****NOTE - The hboot in these firmware packages contains hboot 1.54 which I understand doesn't work with fastboot commands on Windows 8.1 until you have installed the Intel USB 3.0 drivers. See HERE


      Downloads:

      All Packages have been updated to include the latest hboot from GE 3.58.1700.5. Fastboot commands should work on Windows 8.1
