Intrepid phone hackers, pay attention. The HTC One was released just a few weeks ago, but developers are already getting their hands dirty trying to eke the latest Android version out of the hardware.

CyanogenMOD 10.1 nighty builds have just been released for the HTC One and are ready to download and flash. Of course, because the device launched with a Sense build running Android 4.1.2, HTC hasn’t released a kernel source for Android 4.2.2, so there are a few aspects of the device that aren’t quite perfect. The camera, for instance, is still hit-or-miss, and crashes when taking photos with a resolution of higher than 2MP. Outgoing calls are also inconsistent; sometimes the recipient can hear you, sometimes they can’t.

But these are early days yet, and the outstanding issues should transform into outstanding performance sooner than later.

If you’re interested in checking out what the HTC One has to offer, head to XDA-Developers and read up on how to unlock your bootloader, flash a custom recovery, backup your Sense ROM and, finally, install CM10.1.

A note before you continue: though the builds are slated for the international HTC One (M7), this build will work with the North American version. Unlike the Galaxy S4, both the NA and international HTC One are identical in terms of hardware; they only differ in what radio bands they support.

    I’ve installed it, and my phone won’t make calls. It dials, it rings, the other person picks up, there’s just no sound ? :/

    Sounds like a thrill a minute. If my camera won’t work and I can’t make calls, why not just stock with my nexus 4 in the first place, make calls, and have crappy pictures…. Just saying.

    As you can’t expect any definite timelines as all the work towards this is entirely voluntary, it’s nice to see some development, however it is alarming that even basic phone functionality is shaky. Why is this anyways? Is it because HTC didn’t release crucial pieces of their code? Some say they should, others say well it’s rightfully proprietary, if you want all-out open, that’s why you buy a Nexus.

    Nightly builds are just the beginning, but definitely for those of us
    who need their phones to be stable and – just work – we’ll have to
    wait for a stable release which will be a ways away.
