Verizon is the only major carrier in the US who offers the HTC One with Android 4.2, but that doesn't mean squat if you intend to flash a custom ROM on it anyway. Sense 5 is fast, attractive, and stable - but it isn't for everyone. The app drawer could use some work, and the launcher isn't exactly the easiest to customize. Besides, the available options pale in comparison to what CyanogenMod offers out of the box. So for those of you who like to live on the edge, here's the good news: CyanogenMod 10.2 nightlies are now available for Verizon's HTC One.

This should probably go without saying, but nightly builds are only recommended for people who know how to troubleshoot and fix things on their own when things go wrong. Verizon HTC One builds are fresh out of the oven, so there's currently only one available. If you're eager to get your hands on it, just know that it's a 186.53 MB download. Be safe, and make sure to grab the correct GApps package while you're at it.

    I thought Verizon made HTC block HTC dev for their variant? How would you flash cm10.2?

      I'm curious about this as well

        I guess the lucky ones who unlocked the first day it came out
        on HTC dev till the shut it down

          Its called a Javacard. HTC employees use a Micro SD card with built in security features that allow them to modify any part of the phone. A couple xda members coughed up the 1200$ it costs to get one of these. Then charged us $20 Bucks to S-Off our devices. We then superCID and unlocked at HTC-Dev.

          So yes we are unlocking. And its not hacking. :)

      I believe only the ones who got it rooted from the start will have access. Which unfortuantely was only a select few.

    If the nightlies from the DROID DNA are any indication of these, they're rock solid. I use my phone for my business (GPS, card transactions, calendars and email) and I feel comfortable using them.

  • vincet3

  • Stiggy

    Now if only 4.3 could come out for this phone so the rumored root/unlock could come out for this phone.

  • N8ERSWORLD

    Correct me if I'm wrong, you can't root this device without unlocking the bootloader?
