For most, a "converted" device will do the trick just fine. I'm just calling a spade a spade. That's all. I have no interest in unlocking bootloaders, root, or anything of that sort. For me, I read "100% conversion" and my mind instantly went to locking it down to factory state to see what happens. That was all the proof I needed that the differences between GPE and US retail variants go beyond the ROM.

Anything that ever gets update by Google is converted.. And yes, you can s-on. I know because I did it on my m7 the first time and couldn't get s-off again on that device for a very long time.. And I'm not going to do it now just to prove a point and be stuck s-on. In all intensive purposes it's a full conversion. The only partitions not touched really are ones that contain the serial, imei and a few others with sensitive data but any partition that's ever included in an Ota (which is why you're really converting, to get the Ota updates) is converted to gpe partitions. So I'm kinda insulted a second time by you.. You belittle what I do and I have done it way many more times than you. OK so it's a fake conversion that's why I got my Ota and had it successfully installed before some "real" gpe got the update.

You guaranteed the reason the Ota update was failing was it was because it was a converted device.. But you were wrong.. So sorry if I don't put too much stock in what you say

Well:

a) With the M7, you could S-ON with 4.3 but if you took the OTA to 4.4/KRT16S or anything after that, the reboot issue will show up every time. This was true even with your CID and MID set to match the GPE.

b) While yes, I was wrong about it failing due to being a converted device, the fact is that the update works for devices for which it was intended. That's the only place it needs to work and the only place where Google and HTC have a responsibility to ensure that it works. If the update doesn't work with devices for which it WASN'T intended, that's the individual user's problem and not a cause to start a thread claiming that the update is no good.

c) I'm sorry you took my comments as insulting. They certainly weren't intended that way. I was more taking issue with the whole point of this thread.

Thread closed. There is a stickied thread here: [REF][GPE] HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Stock OTA URLs to do with GPE update issues.

Many thanks,
