Hey guys,

I am eligible for an upgrade with AT&T. I have the following questions:

Can I S-off my device?
Can I 'convert' it into a google play edition so it receives updates?

Thanks!

I don't know what you mean? You're saying you can dual boot GPE and Sense?

If you do a full gpe conversion you can't just simply flash a sense ROM because they have different system partitions. Imo, It's better to just flash a gpe ROM that way you can quickly switch back and forth if you want.

To go back to the original question. If you want full GPE conversion that can receive ota updates the link above will, providing you flash the stock recovery (a link to this is provided in the thread) What Otariq says is correct, it does actually convert your phone to a full GPE, partitions and all.

You can flash back to sense but there is a simple procedure you have to follow..

Depends what you prefer.

I am on the conversion and love it
