The speed at which the XDA community works never ceases to amaze us. Hours after the Google Play edition of the HTC One went on sale, hackers have already managed to dump custom ROMs onto the Web. If you have a GSM version of HTC’s lauded device handy, you can ditch Sense right now. Give it a whirl.
You’ll need to root your device before flashing the ROM—here’s an all-in-one tool to get you started, courtesy of XDA. Once you do that, you should have no problem getting Android as Google intended it onto one of the slickest handsets available. By all accounts, everything is working (so far) as it should, but always be weary when rooting and flashing.
XDA made fast work of the HTC One, and it’s likely we’ll see the same thing done to the Galaxy S4. For now, those looking for a stock Android 4.2.2 experience—complete with new camera UI and all Google apps—can do so now.
