Anyone experiencing stutter, crackling with screen off, while playing music, please flash the attached BoomSound (GSM) ADSP - I also attach the HK (Harman Kardon) ADSP as flashable zip in case you want to test with both. Please report back.

These zips are TWRP flashable zips which use by-name flashing method. Very safe. However, since this is firmware, you need to be S-OFF.

Both ADSP's are taken from the 6.xx versions (6.12.401.4 and 6.xx from Sprint HK, not sure which version exactly).

By the way: the GSM ADSP fixed the sound stutter for me using HTC Music Player. However, SoundCloud still stutters with screen-off. No idea why. It might really need a manipulated kernel for some reason. The issue is a bit weird and not the same issue as we used to have on earlier HK/BS Switcher versions. Dunno why.

Tested a few music apps and found the following:
- HTC Music Player - no issues (local)
- Deezer - no issues (Streaming)
- Solid Explorer Music player - no issues (local)
- Spotify - no issues (Streaming)
- TuneIn Radio - no issues (Streaming)
- SoundCloud - "SlowMo Sound" (Streaming)
- MX Player - no issues (Streaming) (local)
- Total Commander Player - no issues (local)

Ma Man, Sound back again

You do realize this phone is way beyond its lifespan and there won't be any fixes coming anymore, right?

By the way, the Harman Kardon mod needs a specific alteration in the kernel to get rid of the audio stutter, but this is not true to all versions, some work with a stock kernel.

Since development and maintenance on this has long ceased, I'd rather not use that modification anymore. Just my two cents.

I had to use adb with my m8 (s-on).
But I always had device unauthorized and no prompt when I connect the device.
Tried to uncheck many times + reboot but no luck
Does anyone could help me ?
Many thanks

Is there any Problem known with this rom?

Known issues are on the first page, however I'll mention what the two biggest issues for me were with this ROM (which I still miss sometimes, but had to move on)

1. This ROM isn't actively developed anymore, so don't expect updates.
2. If the phone shuts off abruptly due to low battery (even though it may read ~20%) it stands a chance of randomly losing data, which might only be one or two apps, or in my case was almost the same as a factory reset :eek:

So guys why the M8 Roms Community is so dead i see phones like the One Plus One and the Z3 which have the same Processor as the M8 and they have plenty of roms and support for their phones why the m8 is dead?
It's a 4 years old device, electronics age quickly, so it's pretty much ancient by today's standards. People have moved on or their devices have died, no surprise the forum is "cooling down". M8 has got many roms to chose from.

The development for M8 isn't dead, it's just that many of the roms are final, with everything devs could fix fixed. There is some active development for few roms, like xenonhd or los15.1.

Z3 development seems pretty similar and oneplus one is a rather special device, like samsung galaxy S II - it's just so good, affordable and people like it so much it will have custom roms for really long time.

    1. Download the latest rom from our venomroms download page
    2. If you got an external sdcard place the downloaded zip there. In case you haven't, wait for step 6 to copy it to your internal sdcard.
    3. Backup your internal sdcard if you got important content on it. Unlocking bootloader will wipe all your data, including your internal sdcard. Your external sdcard will stay untouched.
    4. Register at HTCdev if you dont have an account yet and follow the instructions there to unlock your bootloader
    5. Boot up your phone and copy the rom to your internal sdcard in case you didn't in step one to your external.
    6. Download the lastest TWRP Recovery version on the TWRP Download Page
    7. Flash it with fastboot with following command: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (replace recovery.img with the actual filename it got downloaded with)
    8. To boot into recovery use 'adb reboot recovery' or press and hold power + volume down and wait till it booted to the bootloader. From there you can navigate with the volume buttons and confirm with the power button to boot to the recovery
    9. If you are coming from stock: Make a backup of your stock rom in TWRP recovery. Include System Image and Boot. Now you have a full stock backup, except recovery, in case you want to return back to stock one day.
    10. Ensure you allow system modifications in TWRP when asked.
    11. In TWRP click Install and pick the rom either from internal or external sdcard to install it.
    12. The installer will start and will guide you through the installation
