We decided to release an open beta for the HTC One M9 for the initial release. The framework on the m9 wasn’t that much different compared to the m8. It was a pretty good decision working on the Sense 7 Mod for the M8 and M7 because the work done there could be reused on the M9 now and made that really quick release possible.
The release is declared as beta, because our beta tester team is still pretty small and testing all stuff would have delayed the release a lot. Since the framework wasn’t that much different to Sense 6 Android Release we have a very good feeling that there are just some minor glitches, that will be sorted out soon.
Be aware that this release is just for the international HTC One M9. Theres no Sprint and Verizon Support yet.
