I've got a M8 from EE in the UK, which comes with some carrier additions in the software. It also tells me that I'm up to date, although I know there is a newer version out there. It's obviously not been approved my my carrier yet.

Is there anyway I can convert my device to the standard firmware, after unlocking on HTC dev?

I suppose I could just flash a custom Rom?

Would my carrier know / care if I did this?

Cheers
Stewart

Your carrier wouldn't know but HTC will know that you've unlocked the boot loader. If you need any warranty work or need to send it back to EE then even if you locked the bootloader it would show as re locked and not locked. If EE check this then they may charge you for any repairs.
