HTC has announced that the HTC One source code has now been released. Developers who have been waiting on it can now rejoice, as the source code can be used for creating custom ROMs as well as custom apps that only work with the HTC One. The company has a history of providing the source code for its devices, and it is no doubt much appreciated by developers. From a user’s point of view this release isn’t exactly of any value until developers come with with a whole range of custom ROMs and apps.
The source code is for Vodafone UK and Vodafone France versions of HTC One, though that doesn’t really stop developers from creating ROMs for the device in general. Apart from this, HTC has also released the latest source code version for Droid DNA. The downloads are available right now from HTC Dev Center. The smartphone itself is yet to be released in the US, though it is expected to come out by the end of this month. While we’re on this subject, do check out our detailed HTC One review.
