I’ve been running CM for almost six months now and have played with many different options and settings throughout and am very happy now with the following settings. This might be helpful for others thinking of ditching the stock Android and HTC Sense software.
1. Here is a snapshot of what the software versions look like tonight. I’m running CM 11.
2. I’ve found staying with dalvik runtime for the time being is still the way to go.
3. I have also played around a lot with energy profiles and found power save the best way to go.
4. For processor settings, I went back and forth often but keep coming back to the ondemand setting. Interactive is also great, but eats more battery for me and my usage for some reason.
Well, that is what I’m running now but it might change. I have tried Art runtime often, but have not yet found any advantages. The AT&T Visual Voicemail is buggy on KitKat, but I’m hoping they will eventually stabilize it again.
Hope this gives you another point of reference. I love the HTC One hardware, and CM really makes it sing.
I bought a micro-USB to HDMI MHL cable on a lark down at Central Computers on Howard St. in San Francisco just to see if I could get video-out on my CM-modded HTC One. I hooked it up today to our Samsung TV just to see and it came up immediately! Pretty cool that it just pushed the video-out without a problem or additional configuration. My guess is any micro-USB to HDMI cable should work. Here are some pics of the $15.95 one I bought from Central that for sure works.
Here is the cable in the bag. It is a pretty generic model. I bought it because it was the only one that really didn’t make a reference to Samsung phones. My guess is though, it probably doesn’t matter as long as the cable is to the MHL standard.
I was so shocked it all just worked, I have yet to test things like Netflix, and other Android audio/video apps.
