Long time iPhone user converted to android with the new HTC One M8.
I have recently purchased the HTC One M8 from my local Three store. Now the phone has a three splash screen and limited bloatware.
I understand that updates to android can be delayed as they are pushed via three.
What would be the general procedure to flash/update the phone to:
1. Remove three splash screen and associated bloatware to keep it as if it was bought simfree.
2. Would the current custom roms available achieve the above and be compatible with UK handset?
