    Power off phone (be sure to turn off fast reboot in settings first). Boot into recovery by holding volume-down key and then holding power key until boot menu appears. Volume down to RECOVERY and tap power to select. HTC logo appears followed by a blank, dim screen. Now, tap all three together: power, volume up and down, and release immediately. You may have to repeat this until you get the timing just right. Black screen appears and sd card error message scrolls. After about ten seconds, recovery menu appears (all in very small font). Volume-down to "wipe cache partition" at bottom of list and tap power key. Cache gets cleared. Then select "reboot system now" by tapping power key again. Done!

    Device will now be a little snappier and some quirky behavior that sometimes develops is fixed. May want to do this every month or so to keep things running better, or if device behaving strangely and you want to try a quick fix that may work.

    Just to clarify, you are saying this method works for you on the Verizon version HTC One?
    I ask because once you scroll to recovery and hit the Power button the phone reboots immediately showing the HTC logo. There is no "Blank, dim screen".

    My dimly lit blank screen showed right after the HTC screen. This part of the process took like 10 second like he said. I had to hit all 3 buttons a few times as well.

    Went back and tried again....it worked! Not sure why it didn't the last few times but nevertheless it did this time.
    Thanks murof & bikercr!

    You have to time the three-button tap pretty simultaneously, but can get away with several tries until it works. When you see the tiny bright yellow SD card error message scrolling down on a black screen background, you know you're good to go. If you're over 45, be sure you have your reading glasses on.

    I was getting 16 to 18 hours of battery and it suddenly dropped to annoy 10. I did this and I'm back on pace for 18 hours.

    I recommend this for anyone with battery drain issues.

    I only get the red triangle with an arrow after trying to tap the three buttons. Am I just not doing it fast enough or is there some other reason?

    Edit: Never mind. Apparently this is the way to do it (at least if you're using a non-Verizon device)

    Hi, two questions: how do you tap volume up and down at the same time?
    And I'm trying to clear the cache using the suggestion on the HTC One site, however, when I go into settings then storage and go to content it shows me a bunch of headings with how many files are in there but the last category is Miscellaneous and mine has 4,127 files. When I go in there, there are 25 sub categories with different amounts of data being stored but it isn't clear if any of this is just cached files or things I shouldn't touch! How do I know what to delete? For example under .data it says 68.27MB. But what is included in that!?!?
