HTC One (M8) HK mod
If you've been following the news closely, then you probably know that a Harman Kardon edition of the HTC One (M8) is launching on Sprint this coming Friday. The pimped out model comes with a unique, two-tone paint job, a pair of Harman Kardon AE-S headphones in the box, and Harman's Clari-Fi sound-enhancing feature. Never heard of the latter? Well, it is a clever piece of software that aims to restore the original fidelity of compressed digital music, and for now, it is only going to be available on Sprint's exclusive HTC One (M8) model.

With a little hacking, however, anyone owning a standard HTC One (M8) can add some Clari-Fi goodness to it, and XDA Developers member baadnews is the one to thank for that. Just recently, he put together a how-to guide in which he describes the process in detail and even outlines solutions to errors that you may encounter along the way.  

But before you start tinkering with your HTC One (M8), you should be aware of a few things. First and foremost, you need root access for this hack to work. You should also be comfortable with flashing a few zip files using a custom recovery. And if you own the Google Play edition of the handset, don't even bother trying the hack as it will work only with HTC's Sense UI. 

If none of that bothers you, however, then feel free to follow the source link below. Drop us a line down in the comments if you get the hack to work.
