CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Now Available For The Galaxy Note 3 On Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, And International LTE Models

Posted on

If you’re too impatient to wait for Samsung to get Android 4.4 to your carrier variant of the Galaxy Note 3 (or if you’re just tired of TouchWiz), the indefatigable boys and girls of CyanogenMod are here to help. They’ve just released the first nightly builds of CM 11 (KitKat) for Samsung’s plus-sized flagship, with support for the international LTE model (N9005), plus VerizonT-Mobileand Sprint versions.

As it happens, Samsung just started sending out the official 4.4 update for the N9005 earlier this week, so those of you who are on the unlocked version of the phone might want to go for the TouchWiz build of KitKat instead. American carriers will probably be at least a month behind, and possibly much longer, so those users will find the ROM more tempting. Of course switching to CyanogenMod means giving up Samsung’s stylus-oriented apps and UI touches in favor of a more AOSP-style experience.

Regular ROM flashers, you know the drill: download the nightly build, load it up in your custom recovery, backup, flash, badda bing badda boom. Add some Gapps if you want the Google Play Store and associated goodies. As always, keep in mind that nightly builds are a little on the wonky side, though CyanogenMod’s official nightlies tend to be more stable than most.

There is a distinct lack of both the international GSM and AT&T models in this initial rollout. I’m betting that the former is because all of the LTE variants share common hardware and code, while the latter is probably thanks to the locked bootloader on AT&T phones. We’ll be sure to let you know if any more builds show up.

HTC has pushed out official Android 4.4 KitKat Sense 5.5 update to unlocked and international versions of HTC One couple days ago.  For AT&T and T-Mobile users, if you are not rooted, you will probably have to wait another month or two.

But for those of you rooted, you can simply grab the stock version in a zip file format and flash with the latest version of TWRP recovery v2.6.3.3.  Yes, you can install this on any GSM HTC One including AT&T, T-Mobile, unlocked, and international.

This is probably also the preferred method for rooted users as you will not lose your custom recovery nor have to re-root your HTC One through HTCDev.com’s painstinking(yes I made that up) unlock process.

This is 100% stock version, just made into a zip format you can flash using TWRP recovery.  Do not use CWM recovery as it’s not compatible.

Not much has changed as far as UI goes since Android 4.3 but Android 4.4 upgrade brings you lots of under-the-hood performance improvements and you should also be able to get much better battery life.

Overall, I am very satisfied HTC was really quick about updating their Sense to Android 4.4 KitKat as many other companies like Samsung are still working on that.  So, if you are into Sense and want the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, grab the zip file and do let me know what you think!

Download:

Download Android 4.4 KitKat Sense 5.5 Stock ROM (odexed) for HTC One – Mirror

Download SuperSU

To install this ROM, you NEED TO USE TWRP Recovery 2.6.3.3 or higher!!!  You can use Goo Manager App on Play Store to update.  If for some reason you cannot update using Goo Manager, you can grab the image file over here and install using fastboot manually like you did when rooting your phone.  The command is “fastboot flash recovery recovery.img” and replace recovery.img with the actual image file name.

To install ROM, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset (unless coming from stock Sense ROMs), install ROM, install SuperSU, and reboot!

Extras:

Download Flash Player APK (if you want flash player use with Dolphin browser)

DownloadAndroid 4.3 PhotoSphere (if you want photosphere, but may force close so make a backup of your Gallery app using Titanium Backup app before installing!  )

If you want to run your apps in tablet/hybrid/custom DPI mode, see our Xposed App Settings guide.

If you want PIE Controls, see our LMT Pie Control guide.

If you want some awesome audio, check out Viper4Audio FX MOD, which you can install on this ROM to enhance your music 100%.

For this week’s ROM of the week, check out CM11 with latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat for your HTC One, available for all variants including GSM international/unlocked/AT&T/T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

I’ve been trying many other AOSP ROMs in the last week or so but haven’t found one that gives you as much stability (with everything working out of the box) so I kept going back to CM11, which has already passed its M3 milestone (meaning it’s stable), and highly recommended for those of you who want to experience custom ROMs without bugs (or minimal).

With latest CM11, you will be able to experience all of the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat along with the ability to install new custom kernels (that can give you new features like BLN, Swipe2Wake, undervolting and more).  Most custom kernels for AOSP ROMs are currently more compatible with CM11 builds so you may want to try CM11 if you are into trying custom ROMs.  For GSM/AT&T/T-Mobile/International users, I recommend teaMSeven’s CM11 kernel here.  For Sprint users, tryThoravukk kernel.  (Installing kernel is easy, just make a backup ROM before you install it in CWM or TWRP, then flash the kernel zip file and reboot!)

Overall, CM11 Android 4.4.2 KitKat is the way to go if you want to really experience custom ROMs so definitely give it a try (if you haven’t tried CM11 yet) and let me know how it went.  (And try some custom kernels too for more features.)

Download:

Download CM11 for HTC One GSM/International/Unlocked/AT&T/T-Mobile

Download CM11 for HTC One Sprint

Download CM11 for HTC One Verizon

Download Android 4.4.2 Gapps (DO NOT USE OLDER GAPPS!!!)

YOU MUST USE CWM RECOVERY 6.0.4.3 OR HIGHER or TWRP RECOVERY 2.6.3.3 OR HIGHER.  YOU CAN USE ROM MANAGER(CWM) OR GOO MANAGER(TWRP) APP FROM PLAY STORE TO UPDATE YOUR RECOVERY.  

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install gapps, and reboot.   (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)

How To Install Custom ROM on HTC One!

For those of you who want to install a custom ROM on your HTC One, here’s a brief tutorial guide.

Step 1. You will need to first download the custom ROM you want to install.  These ROMs come in a “zip” file format (so DO NOT UNZIP them) and usually 1 large file around 200MB to 1GB.  Some ROMs may require you to install multiple files.

You can download these zip files straight to your phone or use your computer to download (as downloading on your computer may be more stable/effective/faster) then copy over to your phone’s storage.

Step 1. Once ROM zip files are downloaded/copied to your phone, follow Steps 1 thru 3 here to get into TWRP recovery.

Before installing a ROM, you will want to do a “data wipe/factory reset” by hitting the “Wipe” button. This will erase all your settings, apps, and app data (but not personal photos/videos on your storage).   I highly recommend using Titanium Backup app to backup your apps, SMS Backup & Restore app to backup your SMS text messages, and use an online service such as GMail or Facebook to backup your contacts.  Most online service providers like GMail or Facebook offer built-in ability to auto backup/restore your contacts.

*Optional – You can try installing a custom ROM without wipe, but this is considered risky and dangerous as sometimes the ROM may not boot.  You can make a backup ROM if you are going to try this route so you can restore easily.  Also, this can keep your settings, apps, and app data without restoring them.

howto-install-custom-rom-htcone-1

Step 2. Once wipe is done (or you have decided not to wipe but have backup ROM), simply use the “Install” option in main menu and find the ROM zip file you need to install.  If there’s multiple files, simple install them one by one until you are done.howto-install-custom-rom-htcone-2

Step 3. Once done installing custom ROM, reboot and cross your fingers your phone will boot.  If your phone boots within 5-10 minutes you should be good to go.  If not, you can try re-installing ROM, especially if you did not wipe, try re-installing after wiping.

For those of you who’ve rooted your HTC One, did you make a backup ROM yet?

Backing up a ROM will backup everything on your phone including your settings, apps, app data, kernel, and the whole ROM.  It will not backup your personal photos or videos stored in your internal storage but it will backup everything else.

This can be handy later down the road your HTC One malfunctions.  For example, if your phone stops booting for some reason (due to bad custom ROMs or apps), you can easily restore your phone to a previous state by restoring your ROM.

If you “still” haven’t made a backup ROM, I highly suggest you to follow this tutorial to make a backup ROM.

Step 1. Make sure “Fast boot” is checked OFF under Settings->Power.

howto-backup-restore-rom-htc-one-1

Step 2. Power off your HTC One.  Then hold down Volume Down and Power buttons together for about 3 seconds to enter bootloader menu.howto-backup-restore-rom-htc-one-2

Step 3. Choose “RECOVERY” using Volume Down key then hit Power button to enter TWRP recovery.

howto-backup-restore-rom-htc-one-3

Step 4. Once inside TWRP recovery, you can easily choose “Backup” or “Restore” to backup or restore ROM, it’s that simple.

howto-backup-restore-rom-htc-one-4

Step 5. If you are backing up ROM, make sure “Boot”, “Data”, and “System” are checked and swipe to start backup.  Backup process should take about 5-10 minutes or longer depending on how many apps you’ve installed on your phone.

Backups are usually large between 1-5GB depending on how many apps you’ve installed.  They are stored in your internal storage under TWRP/BACKUP directory.  You can easily save space by moving these files to your computer and move them back to the same location when you need to restore your phone.

howto-backup-restore-rom-htc-one-5

Step 6. When restoring ROM, you will find your backups organized by folders.  You can name your folders while backing up otherwise they will be stored with the timestamp of the time you backed them up.

howto-backup-restore-rom-htc-one-6

This is one of the most crucial yet simple things to do on your HTC One.  It’s HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you make at least one backup ROM after rooting your phone.  If you have not yet made a backup ROM, please do ASAP!

For those of you who want to root your HTC One, here’s a step-by-step tutorial for all Windows, Mac, and Linux computers, that will allow you to unlock the bootloader, install TWRP recovery, and root your HTC One without losing your apps/settings by using ADB backup.

This root method will work on all of the following HTC One smartphones:

HTC One M7 – AT&T/T-Mobile/International/Unlocked/Developer

HTC One M7WLS – Sprint

Also will work on Android 4.2.2 and Android 4.3.

(You can also download this video here in full 1080P MP4 format for viewing on your phone/tablet/computer!)

Before we begin, MAKE A BACKUP of EVERYTHING on your HTC One internal storage by copying the everything to your hard drive! (For Mac, please install Android File Transfer, which will allow you to connect your HTC One as a disk drive.)

Step 1. First, go to Settings->Developer options and make sure USB debugging is checked ON.

Step 17. Hit “Submit” and if you copied and pasted the token correctly, you should get a success message.

howto-root-htc-one-20

Step 18. Check your e-mail and you should have received Unlock_code.bin file from HTC.com.

howto-root-htc-one-21

Step 21. Go to your phone and choose “Yes” using Volume Up button then hit the Power button.  Your HTC One will reboot in about 5 seconds.

howto-root-htc-one-24

Step 22. Once rebooted, your HTC One should be completely wiped and you should get Welcome message just like the day you got your phone.  Sign in through the setup process then copy the CWM-SuperSU-v1.30.zip file in HTCOneRoot folder to anywhere on your HTC One’s internal storage.

*Note – For Android 4.3 or 4.4, please use the file “UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip” instead of v1.30.

howto-root-htc-one-25

Step 23. Power off your phone then re-boot into bootloader menu to fastboot mode like you did in Step 7.

howto-root-htc-one-26

Step 24. Type the following to install recovery:

For HTC One M7 (AT&T/T-Mobile/International/Unlocked/Developer)

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.0-m7.img

For HTC One M7WLS (Sprint):

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.0-m7wls.img

Then Type:

fastboot erase cache

For Mac, replace “fastboot” with “./fastboot-mac”.

For Linux, replace “fastboot” with “sudo ./fastboot-linux”.

howto-root-htc-one-27

Step 25. Choose “Bootloader” and hit the Power button.

howto-root-htc-one-28

Step 26. Choose “Recovery” and hit the Power button.

howto-root-htc-one-29

howto-root-htc-one-30

Step 27. Once in TWRP recovery, choose “Install”.

howto-root-htc-one-31

Step 28. Choose the file CWM-SuperSU-v1.30.zip.

*Note – For Android 4.3 or 4.4, please use the file “UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip” instead.

howto-root-htc-one-32

Step 29. Swipe to flash this file.  This will root your HTC One by installing SuperSU superuser app and SU binaries.

howto-root-htc-one-33

Step 30. Choose “Reboot System” to reboot.

howto-root-htc-one-34

Step 31. Once rebooted, you will find “SuperSU” app in your app drawer.  Congratulations!  You’ve successfully rooted your HTC One!  You can verify full root by installing a rooted app like Titanium Backup app.

howto-root-htc-one-35

Step 32. Next, let’s restore your data.  Go ahead and copy all of your data (you backed up earlier) back into your HTC One’s internal storage.

Then, go to Settings->Developer options and make sure “USB debugging” is checked ON.  (You will have to do this again since your phone reseted itself when you unlocked the bootloader) Connect micro-USB cable from your phone to your computer.

howto-root-htc-one-36

Step 33. Next type the following to restore your app and app data:

For Windows:
adb restore backup.ab
For Mac:
./adb-mac restore backup.ab
For Linux:
./adb-linux restore backup.ab

howto-root-htc-one-37

Step 34. Go to your phone and hit “Restore my data”.

howto-root-htc-one-38

Step 35. Your HTC One should now be fully rooted along with your apps!

howto-root-htc-one-39

Step 36. HTC One stock firmwares are HARD TO FIND.  So, my suggestion is to make a backup ROM at this point.  That will allow you to easily unroot and restore stock firmware if something goes wrong or you want to take your phone back for warranty.

You can do this easily by re-booting into TWRP recovery and selecting “Backup”.
