Long story short, I bought my phone off Amazon, its an AT&T unlocked version, and I recently found that this meant I cannot make use of the hotspot tethering function. If it matters, I am primarily going to use my phone in Singapore.
Here's my phone info:
C:\fastboot>fastboot getvar all INFOversion: 0.5 INFOversion-bootloader: 1.55.0000 INFOversion-baseband: 4T.20.3218.13 INFOversion-cpld: None INFOversion-microp: None INFOversion-main: 3.17.502.3 INFOversion-misc: PVT SHIP S-ON INFOserialno: xx INFOimei: xx INFOmeid: 00000000000000 INFOproduct: m7_ul INFOplatform: HBOOT-8064 INFOmodelid: PN0712000 INFOcidnum: CWS__001 INFObattery-status: good INFObattery-voltage: 4046mV INFOpartition-layout: Generic INFOsecurity: on INFObuild-mode: SHIP INFOboot-mode: FASTBOOT INFOcommitno-bootloader: dirty-a85199f7 INFOhbootpreupdate: 11 INFOgencheckpt: 0 all: Done! finished. total time: 0.048s
My software version is stated as 3.17.502.3
However on the HTC website for HTC One ATT version it says the latest software version is 5.12.502.2
But when I run the AT&T Update on my phone, it says that no updates are available.
Why is this so...
The second question is related to the first:
Since I am going to use the phone primarily in Singapore, should I just flash it to a non-ATT ROM, which would presumably remove the 'lock' on tethering? If I choose to do this, do I need to change the CID (using SuperCID or other means) to enable me to flash to another ROM? I just need the vanilla HTC Sense without all the useless ATT add-ons.
Thanks for your help!
