Pre-release version of Android 4.3 firmware for international HTC One leaks
A pre-release version of Android 4.3 together with Sense 5.0 has been leaked for the international HTC One by HTC insider LlabTooFer who has produced a custom ROM. He also announced on Sunday that he would release the original Firmware update, untouched, on August 28th at 10am GMT. The ROM released today is based on unfinished firmware version 3.09.401.1 which means that there aren't that many changes, although some of the new features are worth mentioning.

First, the update brings users the capabilities to use their own music in the background of the video highlight reel, and Sense will use the beat of the music to make picture changes. How cool is that? The latter is a feature of the HTC One mini that is coming to the full-sized model after the update. Other changes include a new Task Manager app and new short cuts to the data usage screen.

Remember that this is a pre-release build so there are some new things that will be coming to the official release. There is speculation that some new capabilities are coming to BlinkFeed, but again, that will have to wait for the official HTC rollout. In the meantime, if you are the gambling type, you can click on the sourcelink for the ROM.

There are not HTC One fans, except of the so called tech media. But they all are with iphones in the pockets.
The "love" for this deadly sealed apple-ish tin-can brick is only to fight with Samsung.

Don't know why you even commented? Maybe because you're an ugly plastic fanboy? Or an iboy?

About damn time? 4.3 was released only a month ago. No phone except for Nexus and Google Play devices have gotten it; I know it's not official, but if they finish this within a month or 2, this will be one of the fastest Android updates I can remember.

So this means the official 4.3/Sense 5 OTA update for the One and DNA will be here soon right? I think October was what they said? Or maybe I'm getting the date mixed up with the Windows 8.1 release. Either way, I guess this is a good sign. I really want to see my DNA updated.
