This tool will allow you to easily change MID directly from custom recovery (without ENG HBOOT!!!).

YOU MUST BE S-OFF!

Before using this tool you need to be sure you are using latest version of custom recovery (TWRP or CWM). The current downloads for both CWM and TWRP can found below:

The latest M7 U/UL TWRP can be downloaded HERE. I recommend using TWRP 2.6.3.3.
The latest M7 U/UL CWM can be downloaded HERE.

This will work for Intarnational version, GE, T_Mobile, AT&T and Verizon but NOT TESTED for SPRINT DEVICE!!!


To use this tool please copy zip file to your phone and then boot into custom recovery and choose Install. Then browse to where you copied zip file and select it. Aroma installer will begin. Choose options you want to run.

There will be created backup of original block on /sdcard before making changes.
Please save this backup on your computer (in case of restore) .

Reboot into bootloader after installing and check your new modelid (MID):
Code:
fastboot getvar mid

The echo command can be problematic in aroma, but I solved these problem.

I tested this tool! Everything works!
If AROMA Installer stops at 0% then you must to press Power button and hold 15-17 seconds to reboot. Then go into recovery and start installation again. This will help you.

If I go supercid and supermid can I then get updates not intended for my country?
No, you can't. If you change mid and sid for another country, you must change rom and firmware for this country to receive OTA.
Can I use this tool on Htc one max?
I don't know partition table of HTC One Max, so I can't give advice.
If partition table is identical to HTC One (M7), then you can use this tool.
