Android 4.3 on my HTC One

The wonderful folks at TrickDroid has for while now supplied a Google Android 4.3 stock ROM for the HTC One. Unfortunately the initial 1.0.0 version had a bug where the keyboard kept crashing (at least on the GSM/European version of the HTC One). Now 2.0.0 is out and it works perfectly! It is available here.

I prefer clean stock ROMs. Without a lot of hacks or added features. Google has some bright ideas, and I prefer Android the way they make it. However, TrickDroid does also have a 4.3 based version of their own ROM, that is called version 10.0.0 and can be found here.

Regarding the HTC One: It is still the best phone I have ever owned. The hardware is brilliant, the design gorgeous and now with a clean Android 4.3 ROM the software is also as good as it gets.
