How to Install CM12 Android Lollipop in HTC One Max
Well installation of CM12 Android Lollipop in HTC One Max isn’t tough, but for your information Let me tell you that the Official Android Lollipop OTA update would arrive for the HTC One Max, but for now the time of arrival is not known, so if you are someone who wants your phone to be in warranty and want to install Android Lollipop without Rooting then, you wait for sometime and once the update will be live just install it. But some people like me love enjoying things before the releases so I would be happy even if I lose my warranty to get Android Lollipop in my Phone.[alert-note]Disclaimer : In case any damage or problem occurs while or after installation of custom ROM, Neither Droidmen nor the Author will be responsible.[/alert-note]
