I am wanting to download the Google edition of the 4.4.2 kit Kat update for the Sprint HTC One but am having no luck, can someone help me? I need a sense Rom and I don't like the new update Sprint provides. I'm currently on viperrom 3.5.0 because they don't have the newer versions for Sprint. Everything I look for good Roms they say I need TWRP 2.6.3.3 but the Sprint version is only 2.6.3.0. I'm just sad about this I really want the Google edition.

I don't think that you can run Google edition. That is a GSM version and not CDMA. I would wait to see if someone can confirm that before you hose your phone. Know that they have unbrick directions for those that flash the GSM version on Sprint (which is CDMA).

2.6.3.0 is the latest version for Sprint
Try CWM 6.0.4.3
PhilZ Touch

Download the recovery you want
Put the file in your platform tools folder
Open a cmd window from that folder
Type adb reboot bootloader
It should say fastbootusb
Type fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img
Type fastboot erase cache
Done
