HTC has just published the latest RUU for the HTC One Developer Edition. – Carries the 1.29.1540.16 moniker while still based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
This is basically a untouched image of HTC’s original ROM, it shall allow avid custom ROM enthusiasts to restore their shiny HTC One Developer Edition to their default factory defaults shall something go wrong. This image can potentially solve a ‘soft-brick’ or a system modification gone terribly wrong (like a wrong kernel boot.img being applied for instance).
We can certainly appreciate HTC’s effort to provide a reliable solution for those who tinker around their device software in search of more customization and tweaks!
