Android 7.1 Nougat Update For HTC One M8: How To Download And Install New OS


#AndroidN #HTCOneM8Android 7.1 Nougat Update For HTC One M8: How To Download And Install New OS : HTC announced back in August that the One M8 won’t be eligible for the Android 7.0 Nougat update. Luckily, third-party developers found a way to install Google latest mobile operating system on the 2014 flagship.

The One M8 can be upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat via CyanogenMod ROM. The latest version of the custom ROM, dubbed as CyanogenMod CM 14.1, brings Android 7.1 Nougat to the five-inch HTC smartphone.

Precautionary Measures Before Download

Interested takers can now download and install the new software content, but user discretion is strongly advised. Before proceeding further, back up your files and make sure your One M8 device has 80 percent left in the battery tank.

The first step is root your One M8, then install the USB driver on your PC so it will recognize the device. Secondly, download CyanogenMod CM 14.1 Android v7.1 Nougat from Google Apps before pasting the files on your One M8’s external memory.

The next step is to turn off the device and disconnect it from the PC. Boot you One M8 in Recovery Mode by long-pressing the Volume Down and Power buttons, as per Neuro Gadget.

Once the Recovery Mode screen appears, select “wipe data/factory reset.” Afterwards, press “wipe cache partition” to delete leftover cache. Return to the main Recovery Mode screen and enable “install zip from SD card.”

Press “choose zip from sdcard” and navigate through the file folder containing the Android 7.1 Nougat ROM. Doing so would launch the installation process. The last step is to reboot your One M8 to experience Android 7.1 Nougat in all its glory.

One M8 OS History

The One M8 came with Android 4.4.2 KitKat right out the box. It received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update in 2015 and the Android 6.0 Marshmallow earlier this year.
