A new CyanogenMod 10 (CM10) ROM based on Jelly Bean is available for HTC One S, thanks to XDA Developer named WinMB2. The One S can be overclocked with the ROM, reports Android Advices, and claims that the ROM brings software version Android 4.1.1 for the smartphone along with additional features. The developer notes that the Jelly Bean is fully working in this port but bugs are likely. What is not working in this port is the video recording which sometimes interlaces frames.
HTC has earlier confirmed that the company has plans to upgrade its One series smartphones including HTC One X, One S and One XL.
Until the official Jelly Bean reaches HTC One S, users can enjoy the firmware released by the developer following the below mentioned guide. IBTimes UK advises users to keep a back-up all important data and APN settings before following the steps. Ensure that the device is rooted and the battery of the phone carries more than 40 per cent charge. Users are advised to enable the USB Debugging Mode in HTC One S by browsing to Settings>> Applications>> Development>> USB Debugging. IBTimes UK will not be responsible if any kind of damage happens to your phone by flashing the ROM.
