HTC Posts One M9 Android 6.0 Kernel Files, Includes Variants Such As The Dev Edition Unlocked And EU Model

When a manufacturer open sources the code that makes their device work, it's an occasion worth noting. This is one of the strengths of Android, the availability of files that enable developers and tinkerers to create software that can replace the firmware that our devices ship with. It's one of Android's differentiating factors compared to iOS and Windows Phone.

HTC Representative Says One M9 Owners On Rogers, Wind Mobile, SaskTel, And Videotron Will Get Marshmallow On January 18th

Regular followers of HTC's customer relations will recognize Mo Versi, the company's vice president of product management. He often gives out helpful information on his personal Twitter account, explaining when notable updates are coming for HTC phones and even giving support answers one at a time to his followers. He's considered, in the somewhat insular circles of Android-focused tech blogging, a good dude. And yesterday he gave out some good news: the HTC One M9 Marshmallow update is scheduled to hit a handful of Canadian carriers on Monday.

Official CyanogenMod Builds Now Available For The HTC One M9, Lenovo ZUK Z1, SHIELD Portable, And SHIELD Tablet

The CyanogenMod team continues to expand its selection of builds for its aftermarket ROM, and today no less than four new devices are being added. Those would be HTC's 2015 flagship One M9, Lenovo's budget-oriented ZUK Z1, NVIDIA's SHIELD Portable (the original one with the attached controller), and the SHIELD Tablet.

As usual, CyanogenMod arranges builds by codename: the M9 is "himaul," the Z1 is "ham," the SHIELD Portable is "roth," and the SHIELD Tablet is... "shieldtablet." Huh. All four devices are currently on nightly builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1), and may or may not be added to the more stable releases as they come.

HTC Views Breast Cancer Awareness Month As The Perfect Time To Sell The Pink HTC One M9 Here In The States

We're at the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means now is a good opportunity to take whatever product you're selling and offer it in pink. HTC has decided to do precisely that. If you want to raise awareness of breast cancer or merely draw attention to that colorful piece of metal you keep raising to your ear, then you're the person who should take advantage of this time to buy a limited edition pink GSM HTC One M9. You can even have the pink ribbon imprinted on the back.

If this hot pink device looks familiar, that's because HTC showed off its flagship in this color back when it launched the device in Taiwan seven months ago.

HTC Uploads Its Motion Launch App To The Play Store

As has been its habit over the past couple of years, HTC is slowly uploading its own apps that come preloaded on its devices to the Play Store. This allows the company easier and faster updates and bug fixes to these individual apps, without having to resort to a full software update.

The latest to join the ranks is Motion Launch, which lets you perform a couple of actions before you even turn your display on. These include swiping to unlock or voice dial, double tapping to wake, and launching to some specific apps directly like the home screen, BlinkFeed, or the camera.

 

HTC Motion Launch appears to be compatible with the One M9 on our huge list of Android Police devices, but do let us know if you can install it on other HTC phones.

European HTC One M9 Getting First Android 5.1 Update, Promise Of Shorter Charge Times

While European owners of HTC's One M9 got its most critical update bringing camera and battery life fixes in June, they've been waiting for the jump from Android 5.0 to 5.1 as unlocked and American carrier versions (except Verizon) have received it. The wait appears to be over, though, as users have begun reporting a fairly large OTA that promises a version increase to 5.1 along with quicker charging times.

The ROM version for the update is 2.10.401.1 and the download is a mighty 831.88 MB, so make sure to be connected to Wi-Fi before pulling the trigger. There are certainly a variety of other refinements beyond those mentioned in the OTA notification, not to mention important security fixes.
