[Q] Which firmware to load, suggestions?
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.
- ARHD 41 - Android 4.4 (KitKat) - latest official HTC One 4.06.1540.3 (WWE) firmware (4x.x series)

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:
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
