  • joangarc

    I have installed the ROM half an hour ago, but after booting, the secreen stays with logo htc, but nothing happens…
    Even, I can’t reboot holding power + volume down buttons
    Has anybody installed it? What can I do now??

    • joangarc

      Well!! everything goes well now!!
      I’ve been able to reboot the M9, pressing the three buttons (vol.up, vol. down and power).
      I have done a second installation and now goes perfect!!!

    Are you going to release a version for the sprint m9 1.32.401.30? I’ve never tried one of your roms but I’m wanting to.

  • DJ Kielbasa

    Hey Llabtoofer! Thank you as always for these awesome ROMs!

    I did have a slight issue that took me a good quip of time to figure out. I have the the HTC One M9 Hima_UL_ATT variant and I initially flashed TWRP 2.8.6.0 for the M9 as my recovery. I tried installing this ROM (MaximusHD 1.0.0) many times and each of those many times it failed with the following message: “set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed”. I would also receive a message displaying the ROM install was successful and a reboot was needed. After rebooting the phone, the boot process would stall at the HTC splash screen and TWRP would alert me that there is no OS installed after pressing both volume buttons and power button down simultaneously to get back into recovery mode.

    I finally came to the realization to try TWRP 2.8.5.0 for the M9 and the installation was an instant success, the first try with no error messages.

    My question is, why was this installation having issues with TWRP 2.8.6.0?

    Thank you!

      I did it with TWRP 2.8.6.3 without any problem.
      Of course it is not yet in TWRP web.
      I don’t remember where I found it, but it works perfect with M9, specially with a memory card.

      • DJ Kielbasa

        Hey joangarc,

        That is very interesting. Thanks for letting me know. I did a quick search for TWRP 2.8.6.3 but didn’t find anything, Maybe a more through search on my behalf will result in something.

        Thanks,

      Please, How did you flash a new twrp because im stuck in the same loop you described with a brick for a phone.

  • joangarc

    Spirit2 is a good app to receive FM radio .. and it works well with bluetooth (not the app radio of HTC).
    It worked fine in HTC M7 with MaximusHD 52.0.0.

    But now it doesn’t work in M9 with Maximus 1.0.0.
    I get error: “Tuner API did not start or stop. This device may need a kernel with a working FM driver”.

    Do you know if it is a problem of M9 or MaximusHD 1.0.0?

  • Deejey Ranie Fuentes

    no pude instalarlo en mi m9 me mando error al final de la instalacion que puedo hacer

    • joangarc

      A mi me funcionó a la primera siguiendo esta guia. Lo primero, para rootear el M9:
      http://zidroid.com/how-to-root-htc-one-m9-and-install-twrp-recovery/
      El primer paso es desbloquear el bootloader. ¿Lo has hecho? Al iniciar el telefono en modo boot loader, te ha de indicar que está desbloqueado.

      • Deejey Ranie Fuentes

        si de hecho ya esta desbloqueado ya le hice root
        tiene instalado el tw 2.8.6.0 pero al momento de instalar la rom al final me manda error y no se instala
        “set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed”

  • joangarc

    Hi!!
    Thanks for update to 1.1.0!!
    Please, wich changes have you done?
    Thanks!!

    • DJ Kielbasa

      Hey joangarc,

      I installed the MaximusHD 1.1.0 OTA update and have an
      incessant problem where “Package access helper has stopped working” pops up
      whenever trying to install/update apps. I’ve reverted back to MaximusHD
      1.0.0 because I don’t have this issue using this ROM.

      Have you encountered this? If so, do you have a solution?

      Thanks,

  • tim

    Can someone please help with the loop described below with the twrp 2.8.6.0. I have downloaded the .4 version, but haven’t figured out a way to put it onto my phone so i can then flash 1.0.

    • DJ Kielbasa

      Hi Tim,

      I understand your desperation, but don’t give up!

      1) Make sure you have SDK Tools installed on your
      computer so you can use ADB/Fastboot commands to push/flash files to your HTC
      One M9 via USB using your computer.

      2) Make sure you have HTC Sync Manager installed on
      the computer you use to connect your HTC One M9 to. This program will install
      the drivers for the HTC One M9 and allow your computer to identify your HTC One
      M9 when you connect it via USB.

      3) Connect your HTC One M9 to your computer. After,
      press and hold the “Volume Up”, “Volume Down”, and “Power Button” simultaneously
      until the HTC One M9 reboots/boots into “BOOTLOADER” mode. In “BOOTLOADER”
      mode, use the volume buttons to scroll up or down to highlight/select “BOOT TO
      DOWNLOAD MODE” and then press the “Power Button” to enter the “BOOT TO DOWNLOAD
      MODE”.

      4) Navigate to the directory location of where you
      installed the SDK Tools and open the “platform-tools” folder. In the “platform-tools”
      folder, press and hold “Shift”, right-mouse-click, and the select “Open command
      window here” within the pop-up menu.

      5) In the command prompt window enter: “fastboot
      devices” (without the quotes) and press “Enter”. Then, hopefully your HTC One
      M9’s serial number will be displayed.

      6) To send a custom recovery enter: “fastboot flash
      recovery twrp-recovery-2.8.6.4-hima.img” (without the quotes) and press “Enter”.
      This will send and flash the custom recovery to your phone. The command prompt
      should display a finished message and the total amount of time it took the
      whole flash to complete. Then on your
      HTC One M9, press the “Power Button” as is instructed on the display to
      continue/complete the custom recovery flash process and return you to the main
      menu of the “BOOT TO DOWNLOAD MODE”.

      7) Scroll up or down using the volume buttons and
      highlight/select “reboot to bootloader” and press the “Power Button”.

      8) In “BOOTLOADER” mode scroll up or down using the
      volume buttons to highlight/select “BOOT TO RECOVERY MODE” and press the “Power
      Button”. You should now see the version of the TWRP you just flashed at the top
      of the screen. Now, retry installing the MaximusHD 1.0.0 ROM zip file.

      9) Remember, since the HTC One M9 has micro-SD card
      slot, you can place the .img and .zip files and install/flash from the SD card.

      Keep me posted of your progress.

        Thank you so much for the help. I ended up putting the new twrp on a sd card from a computer and then used that to flash the new twrp and then the maximum HD rom. One thing I am wondering about now is that whenever I go to try and install anything, it will download fine, but then when it comes to installing, it will just sit there and never finish. Idk if this is an error in the coming for the HTC One maximum HD rom, but I have flashed it several times but to no avail and the only thing that solved it is a quick restart of the phone and then I can install maybe one app and then I have to restart again to install another. And as for installing the 64bit version of the antutu benchmark, I haven’t had any luck, I just keep getting an error message saying “package access helper has stopped working” and then once I try to install, the same problem persists. It won’t ever finish installing. Just continues to pretend like it’s doing something.

          Hey Tim,

          That is great to hear, you are very welcome! You know, I have been having the
          same issue as you. I’ve installed the MaximusHD 1.1.0 OTA update four times and each time I have done so I get the “Package access helper has stopped working” you speak of every time I want to install an app or update an app. I’m able to download apps, like you said, but when the installation process starts, my phone just sits there showing “Installing…” but never progresses until I restart.

          Yup, I have the same issue with AnTuTu Benchmark when on
          MaximusHD 1.1.0 and cannot install the 64-bit version as a I too receive the “Package access helper has stopped working”. Then, I also need to restart my phone.

          I’ve wiped the dalvik cache through TWRP hoping that would
          solve this issue, but it didn’t help. Finally, I just reverted back to just
          using MaximusHD 1.0.0 and have been ignoring the update as I don’t have this problem with MaximusHD 1.0.0. I do not know what is causing this issue.

          Maybe someone else knows the solution to this issue?

          • tim

            Awesome. Looks like I will go back to the 1.0 then. Thanks for the update! What all will this wipe out of the phone? What will I lose, in other words and what should I back up? I have just redownloaded a lot of music. Lost all my pics when I rooted, but oh well. So yea, what should I be expecting?

          • DJ Kielbasa

            Nice and you’re welcome! If you revert to MaximusHD 1.0.0 it’ll
            wipe out your current ROM that’s installed on your M9 (you’ll start from a
            completely fresh install and you’ll need to reconfigure your settings and other
            stuff). If you want to keep your settings, apps, texts, etc., you can use HTC’s
            backup feature in “Settings” ===> “Backup & reset”. Let this process
            complete and the next time you install your ROM your phone will prompt you to install from a backup source. If you decide to go this route,
            everything should appear as it did in the previous ROM you were running (all settings and so forth).

            That is interesting. Did you completely wipe your internal SD card of your M9? If so, this is why you lost all your pics. To my knowledge, it’s possible to root your phone and flash ROMs without wiping the internal SD (built-in storage) of a phone of things like music and pictures. Before I rooted my M9, I backed up my pics but I didn’t remove them from my phone and then rooted and installed
            MaximusHD 1.0.0 successfully without losing my pics.

            Anyway, do a backup of all your data (copy or move your pics, music. etc. from
            your phone onto your computer or onto your micro SD card if you have one), run the HTC Backup feature if you’d like, and then install the ROM by going into your recovery and flashing it from there.

            I made it safely back to 1.0, however lost all photos and ability to connect to AT&T address book. Kinda annoying, but it’s all good. Lost all my music too. It did re-download all my apps though so that’s good. Now I’m trying to get the auto start app killing feature of the clean master app to work. Keeps saying I’m not rooted, but I definitely am. Using root checker. I’m pretty content though. I’ll just have to get a big enough sd card for all my media for the next time I update.Not update for to 1.1 though, that’s for sure.

    Hey, I’ve used the MaximusHD roms ever since I got the HTC One M7 when it first came out. Now, I’m using your rom for my M9. I love the simplicity of it and the extra battery savings this results in. Anyway, there is one issue, and really only one, however it is quite a big one. So whenever I’m going about installing apps, sometimes just randomly it will flash a dialogue box telling me that “package access helper has stopped” this will flash 4 times every time and I will have to select “ok” for each box. After this, installing anything becomes impossible as it will continue with the loading bar acting like it is still installing, however this is not the case. It never installs. Whenever opening up the antutu app, this error message immediately appears and I am unable to install the 64bit version of the benchmark software. If you could include a fix for this in the next update, that would be awesome. And thank you for the awesome rom. Keep up the good work, man!
