HTC One M7 users! If you are planning to discard your device because of HTC taking far too long to launch the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, you might want to rethink your decision.
This is because there is now a way for One M7 users to get their hands on the Android 5.0 Lollipop and it is at XDA. The independent developers there had just produced a custom ROM specifically for the One M7 and it contains the Android version 5.0.2.
Of course, the ROM is still in its early build and there are a couple of issues with it. Regardless, those issues can be reported to the developer and he will send out a fixing accordingly.
There is also no need to fear about the loss of warranty since the One M7 is already pretty old and out of the coverage period.
So if you dare to make this leap into the world of Lollipop, then head over to XDA and claim the custom ROM together with the Google Apps package. There, you will also receive the installation instruction and all the requirements that are needed for the manual update.
