Mini Kit Kat update lock screen workaround
For those who preferred no lock screen on the HTC One Mini, that option was removed with the Kit Kat update. However, the app No Lock by BoD is a simple, highly rated (4.3) app that restores the ability to eliminate the lock screen. Many HTC One users have rated it 5, and I just put it on my wife's Mini, works as described. I also have it on my HTC One (M7). Set it up once and forget about it, or go back and restore the lock screen if you want. It's free and unobtrusive.
