SWITCH for HTC One will allow you to switch seamlessly between Sense and AOSP

Developer Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo is in the final stages of working on a Sense/AOSP switch for most versions of the HTC One. Cleverly called SWITCH, this project will allow you to easily switch between the official Sense ROM and the official Google Play Edition ROM on your device – or at least as close as one can get to these ROMs while still remaining rooted.

This switch will be baked into a custom ROM that one can flash through normal methods in recovery. It is based on both the 2.24 European HTC One ROM (Android 4.2.2) and the shipping Google Play edition ROM. Since slight variations exist between different HTC One models for different carriers, it’s unclear which HTC One phones this will support at release, but between O’Brien’s genius and the enterprising work of other developers across the world, this will surely be made available on all HTC One devices soon enough.

To check out a demo of SWITCH, play the video above. We’ll also be sure to keep our eyes on this for future updates.
