Developer names on HTC phones

Why know the dev name for the phone? You might just be curious? or really need to know since you’re looking for a RUU for your phone, and since those always are listed by just their dev name it could be a good thing to know.

One of the easiest ways to know the developer name is just to look at and under kernel sources for your phone, and just look at a filename there. Like for a htc one, you find M7 in there, which is the developer name for HTC One. Easy, huh?

Or:  use the fastboot get var command to get all the info needed about your phone. Where it can be found under Product, in my case M7_UL which means a 4G HTC One.
