Hello XDA Devs,

Would like to know what is the best version of firmware to install? Was trying to figure out why the signal strength is worse after going to ARHD 41.

Phone Info:
  • ARHD 41 - Android 4.4 (KitKat) - latest official HTC One 4.06.1540.3 (WWE) firmware (4x.x series)
  • TWRP 2.6.3.3
  • S-Off
  • Sku_ID to 7

(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.44.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 4A.14.3250.13
(bootloader) version-cpld: None
(bootloader) version-microp: None
(bootloader) version-main: 1.26.502.10
(bootloader) version-misc: PVT SHIP S-OFF
(bootloader) serialno:
(bootloader) imei:
(bootloader) meid: 00000000000000
(bootloader) product: m7_ul
(bootloader) platform: HBOOT-8064
(bootloader) modelid: PN0712000
(bootloader) cidnum: CWS__001
(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 4002mV
(bootloader) partition-layout: Generic
(bootloader) security: off
(bootloader) build-mode: SHIP
(bootloader) boot-mode: FASTBOOT
getvar:all FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))
finished. total time: 0.070s

Based on what I read here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2419699

It seems a firmware update is in order. The question is:
  1. Should I update to this firmware version, since ARHD 41 is based on that firmware and just change the CID? (latest) 4.4 KITKAT DEVELOPER EDITION OTA 4.06.1540.3 Custom Firmware (Stock Boot.img & Stock Recovery removed), if yes, how to I properly change the CID, instructions?

    or
  2. Should I follow what the thread suggested flash 1st, ATT 4.2.2 OTA 1.26.502.15 Firmware (HBOOT, Recovery, & Boot.img are removed); 2nd, (Credit to @dark2099 for providing the OTApkg.zip)(latest) ATT 4.3 Official OTA 3.17.502.3 Firmware/Not From The RUU (Boot.img & Recovery.img removed); and wait for ATT 4.4 firmware to come out.

    or
  3. Any suggestion/options?

Any other things I should look out for or prepare before the firmware update?

Thanks again for all the great help having this awesome forum and all the awesome devs/community.

Thx for the suggestion. Since, I already have custom rom installed, flashing the firmware now, will it change anything? Or do I have to re-flash the rom again? Really don't want to redo all the data inside. lol

From what I was reading on the forum, I shouldn't have to worry about that, right?

Thx again for the assistance.
