Default [Q] US 4.4 OTA Update (from file) on a Canadian Unlocked One?

So this might be stupid question of the month...but I have a Bell HTC One that is network unlocked but other than that completely stock. It is running Android 4.3 (3.23.666.1) and Sense 5.0 with a locked stock bootloader. I've tried using a US VPN but I've never been pushed the update OTA when I check.

Would the US OTA update be compatible with my One? I know it's listed as WWE and I assume it's only released in the US for legal rather than technique reasons. Could I download the file and flash it in my stock recovery and be safe?

Thanks,
Paul (Newbie of the Month!)

no, this is not the same software # and not intended for your phone CID.

You need to Soff and either install Ruu for dev edition (sense) or GPE (nexus style). You will need to change CID only, but no need to change MID.

Also. Do NOT try to install US OTA file..
