Not terribly thrilled with all the bloatware that T-Mobile thinks we can't live without. My last HTC phone was the Desire HD back in 2009/2010 and since then have exclusively used Samsung phones. One of the first thing I do is install a third party rom to (hopefully) get better battery life on those phones. Recently, our company allowed us access to corporate mails on personal phones, with the caveat being that device cannot be tampered/rooted etc etc.
What I want to achieve is: Take my completely "virgin" stock T-MObile HTC M8 (1.12.531.19) and flash it to the latest International ROM, such that
1) There is no "tampered" flag left hanging that can prevent me installing the corporate email software (Its called MobileIron, quite stringent - I had a note 3 before the M8, which I had rooted, however, to install MobileIron, I unrooted/reverted to stock, but still MobileIron refused to install as it probably checked the Knox couter on the Note 3)
2) Retain the ability to receive OTA
3) Stay un-rooted - etc etc
Having been away from HTC for 3-4 yrs, I'm not sure how this can be achieved, more worried I'll miss something and end up making the phone unfit for MobileIron.
I Found this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2356401 for another HTC phone
I got tired of waiting for AT&T to release updates for the HTC One and now that we have S-OFF and SuperCID I decided to look into converting my HTC One into an International edition so that I can flash an international ROM and receive OTAs more rapidly.
I would love to flash ARHD, Trickdroid and etc, however I use my phone for work and our security software will detect if the phone is rooted or has a modified OS installed so I needed to stick to stock in order to pass all security checks.
