With each passing day, we grow closer and closer to the eventual release of Android L. We could just sit around, waiting for Google to release the source code and system images, but waiting for an official release is far from being fun. XDA members love porting fun, and custom ROM development provides the required dose.
The Android L port for the Google Nexus 4 was more or less expected, and came relatively shortly after Google released the developer preview images for the N5 and N7-2013. Not many expected to see a HTC One (M7) port, but XDA Senior Member ssrij and a team of developers managed to port the Android L Developer Preview to this former flagship device.
The port is still in alpha stage, and some things simply don’t work. Running Android L on first generation HTC One was made possible thanks to ramdisk and kernel modifications, so it might not run as it should. However, the Developer Preview was made to show people how the Android L will look like and what functions we should be expected.
