Devices running stock Android haven’t exactly been big sellers compared to vendor-customized devices, but a vocal minority continues to clamor for more pure Google experiences. What if users could have the best of both worlds? BGR recently covered custom HTC One software in development that would allow users to switch back and forth between stock Android and HTC’s Sense software at will on the One. Now, that software has been released by MoDaCo as a free public beta and it not only lets users switch back and forth, but it also can share data between the stock Android and Sense builds. This is a custom ROM that requires root access so it isn’t for casual users and installing the software will obviously void your warranty, but experienced users looking for the best of both worlds on one of the most gorgeous smartphones of all time should look no further. All of the files needed to install the new software and a complete installation guide can be found on the MoDaCo site, which is linked below.
