Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update in form of unofficial CM12 custom ROM is being released for more and more devices each day. So, after we spotted CM12 for Sprint HTC One M7, now a new firmware version has been made available for the international model of HTC One. Thus, if you were annoyed to hear that only Sprint users can benefit of Lollipop OS, now you can choose to flash the same Android 5.0.1 OS on your own smartphone.
Of course I am talking about the same unofficial CM12 port that has been circulating lately around the web. CM12 Nightly build is still in development stage so an official CM release will take place only in early January. But, until then you can test the unofficial Lollipop ROM as the same has been optimized by those of xda-developer for your HTC One M7.
The firmware is stable and comes without important bugs, lags or software related issues. If you will find something that isn’t working properly that will be only a minor issue which will be soon addressed by the devs. Thus, bottom line, you can safely update your HTC One M7 with CM12 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OS as the software can be used on a daily basis.
In case you are already thinking in flashing the ROM, keep in mind that you are about to complete an unofficial update operation – the warranty of your smartphone will get void. Also, do note that installing custom ROMs represent a complex and risky procedure, so it should be applied only by advanced Android users. Finally, for being able to apply CM12 OS, root access must be ensured on your HTC One M7, while a custom recovery image should be installed above all.
