HTC One source code released

Posted In News, Reviews - By AndroidPress on Thursday, April 11th, 2013 With No Comments »

HTC has begun releasing source code for the One smartphone. The one catch as of now is that the source code has only been made available for select variants of the HTC One. Specifically, HTC has released source code for the Vodafone UK and Vodafone France variants of the One. The code is based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the files measure in at a bit under 100MB in size.

The key here, while this may eventually bring good news for those who like to run alternative ROMs, for now it means little more than those who are capable of tearing down existing and building new ROMs will now have something from the One to begin playing with. In the long term, this could mean HTC specific features being ripped out of these ROMs and included in others.

Maybe say, something that eventually arrives with some of the Sense 5 goodies such as BlinkFeed. We will have to begin looking towards the capable folks that tend to hang out on the xda-developers forums for something new. In the meantime, the US availability of the HTC One is getting closer and closer.

We previously saw HTC begin accepting pre-orders for the Developer Edition One. This one came available for pre-order a few days back and is sitting priced at $649. Aside from the Developer Edition, the HTC One is also available for pre-order with AT&T. The carrier has the 32GB model priced at $199.99 and the 64GB model priced at $299.99 — both of which assume a two-year agreement. Pre-orders aside, those still on the fence about a purchase may want to check out our recently published AT&T HTC One review.
