Default [Q] Why do I hate gpe m8?

Hi all,

After a year on Samsung S3, S4 and S5 i could not stand the lag and freezing so decided to go with HTC One M8.

Before getting one read a lot of the new M8 and was very enthusiastic because I loved SENSE when it was first introduced....I think its the best out there and after years of using other android and even an iOS I can say that Sense rules.....and then I got an M8 google edition ;(

Its boring and simple and my new M8 is not an HTC anymore. I want Sense back!

Buuuuut someone decide to give me trouble and after whole night I have a TEMPERED, rooted and still S-ON M8 on GE.... Firewater is not there another way to put sense on my phone and get rid of this miserable GEB vanilla rubbish....

Firewater was designed for CDMA devices. Your device should work fine with the standard unlock via HTC Dev

Just a though, if you don't like GPE edition, in first hand you shall buy Sense edition not the GPE and you will trouble free.

I also never like GPE and I will always make sure won't get GPE edition.

So you wanted Sense and bought a GPE version? That seems.... stupid. Trade it in? Sell it on eBay and buy a non-GPE?
Running an AT&T HTC M8 with SinLess GPE ROM. Unlocked, S-Off, of course.

Gpe probably hates you just as much.
