    How to install Android 4.4 Kitkat in HTC One S

    HTC One S is a high end Smartphone offering you great features and good camera output. In this guide I am going to show you how to install Android 4.4 Kitkat OS on the device. Now this is a custom process of OS installation so this will void the warranty. The rom is tested and works really well on the device. It is fast responsive and smart enough to give you proper output. By having this new custom rom on your phone you can enjoy a number of different benefits. This is a CM based rom that gives you different option to customize the lock screen. This is not available in the official OS. You even change the text color of lock screen and modify the rotation instantly from quick settings. You can use widget carousel, Slider Shortcuts, Static Lock screen shortcuts, etc.

    There are tons of new feature available in this new rom and it works really well. The output is not poor at all. The rom is right now customized completely form HTC One S and has smart output. Remember that the process consist of custom rom installation. This is going to void the phone warranty and no longer will you get any OTA updates. So do the same on your own risk.


    Pre-Requirements:


    • Backup your phone data. Backup everything. The process will overwrite the phone content and you might lose everything. So backup the data and then go ahead with the process.
    • Turn on usb debugging. You can do that through Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging.
    • The process needs a rooted phone. It will not work if the device is not rooted. There is a separate method for that. If you are not sure install root checker app from Google play and verify the same.
    • Your phone must have more than 75% of battery left. If it shutdown in between your device can brick.
    • Download Kitkat 4.4 Android OS Package

    Installation Process:

    • You will have to copy the downloaded Kitkat 4.4 Android OS Package on your phone memory card. Insert the card in the device.
    • The second thing is to download rom manager application. You can find that on Google Play. Download this app and install it on your phone.
    • The next thing is to boot the device in recovery mode which you can do through Rom Manager.
    • Boot in recovery mode and first run a full data wipe. And also wipe out the cache.
    • Then go back on the main screen and choose install from SD card. Select the firmware zip file to initiate the installation process.
    • The process will take around 5 to 10 minute to complete. Leave the phone aside. Your device might boot a few time.
    • Once the process is over restart your phone and done. Enjoy the new rom.

    When I tried to install 4.4 it says "warning no file_contexts" and then get's stuck in a recovery. when it turns on it automatically goes into recovery, won't do anything else. any ideas? pretty much sucks.
    Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
