Actually if I can install the developer edition rom on Verizon M8 I will have no Verizon bloatware and it gets the fastest software updates directly from HTC.
Like my At&t M7 converted to Developer Edition received kitkat update 1 month before At&t released it.
Also Verizon rom has removed a few options such as switching between 2g/3g. It only has a switch between 3g/4g. I live in India where only a few states have 4G ang I dont have 4G in my region. But this is just an example.
