Default Installing Google Play edition on A&T m8?

Hi. I have a AT&T HTC One m8 with an unlocked bootloader and s-off. Question I have is: To be able to use the Google Play Edition ROM, do I have to convert my AT&T m8 to that or can I just install the Rom like any other ROM in with a custom recovery? Thanks

Just install the Rom. No need to convert.

Changing to GPE is easy, going back, not so much.

That is only of he converts. Flashing a Rom will not make a difference.

Obviously you have not "tried everything" based on the thread you created: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2795256

A pet peeve of mine when folks on here say they have "tried everything". Not only is this virtually guaranteed to be false; but it also doesn't actually tell us what you did try (making it difficult to offer any help).

So we don't have to convert to GPE in order to use the GPE custom Rom right?

No, you do not need to do the full conversion, as was already answered in Post #2 above.
