Understand that everything you do is at your own risk and none of these modifications are guaranteed to work by their authors. This will wipe all of the contents of your phone, so consider backing up any files that aren't on cloud storage.

You will need to do the following in this order:

1.) Unlock your device's bootloader, either through http://www.htcdev.com or by other means. If you are on HBOOT 1.44 or earlier (unlikely,) you can do this "off the grid." For convenience's sake, you can safely unlock your bootloader via the aforementioned website, but it may have implications on your warranty.
2.) Install a custom recovery of your choice (CWM or TWRP) and obtain root on your device.
3.) Create a backup of your current OS in the event that anything goes wrong. Immediately transfer this backup to your PC/Mac storage.
(These three steps are detailed here.)

4.) S-OFF (security off) your device via Firewater, see here.

5.) Download either the pre-rooted or non-rooted 4.4.2 Google Play Edition RUU from here, and be sure your MID and CID (ex. PN07140, T-MOB010) are listed and supported before continuing. (RUU is short for ROM Upgrade Utility; think of the file as an OS install DVD that you will be putting into your phone, much like you would a freshly formatted computer.)

6.) If your bootloader is unlocked, custom recovery is installed, rooted, backup created, S-OFF, Google Play Edition RUU is downloaded, and you are successfully connected to your phone via adb, continue with the installation steps in the last linked thread exactly as they are listed, beginning with "adb reboot bootloader". Again a reminder that this will wipe your phone's storage and, once rebooted, will be running the Google Play Edition OS.

Thank you, for giving me an actual reply. I would have been just happy with a link. You've done more than that I've hit the thanks button.

Hello Eric, and hello fellow HTC One users. Up until now I was frustrated with my old android (stupid Micromax) running on 4.2.1. I can't think of a single night when I didn't sleep praying for an update. From inside I knew that was never happening, but I was hopeful. And today, I just received two of my friends from home (that feeling when you receive someone from your home country after being by yourself for 5 months) and turns out my sweet elder brother had sent a little surprise for me with them. It was an AT&T HTC One M7. I know some of you must be more excited for the upcoming M9 just like me, but I can't imagine myself being happier. I know its almost 2 years old, but its here, its mine and I love it.
And I know perhaps your this response is suppose to be elaborate enough already, I'm really scared that I would go wrong. And I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if such a thing did happen. I'm very new to the whole adb thing, I'll be frank. But I'm crazy enough about stock android to know that I want that over any OEM skin (Touchwiz, Sense) without offence to anyone who likes them. It would mean a lot to me if you could help me convert this AT&T HTC One M7 to the GPE version. If you (or anyone else) can spare a little of your valuable time and help me, please PM me. I wouldn't want to disturb everyone by adding unnecessary posts after posts on the thread. Excitingly awaiting a response as I sleep tonight not praying but thanking cause someone's up there definitely listening to you!

Intimidating
Hello @alray thanks for the response. and for the link. I went through the post and every bit of it came to me as intimidating. Again no offence, but it did sound like the OP was frustrated with helping people like me (noobs as he would refer) which is exactly what I said about myself. Yes, I don't know much about ADB and the process of conversion to GPE seems quite different from the one I had to go through about 2 years ago when someone just like you was kind enough to extend help in installing Omnirom on my Original Note. I am a noob and hence I want help. If I wasn't, I wouldn't have asked for it in the first place. As much as I would want to post their and mention your name, it didn't sound like a very inviting place. Thanks for the help, I can understand if you wouldn't want to help here. I guess, as he blatantly puts, I'll have to figure it out myself if I want to convert or just continue to be a noob who has to settle for whatever the company offers through OTA. Thanks again. I shall try on my own

Go step by step and ask your questions here we will help you. Is your phone s-off? You'll need s-off to change your CID and maybe also your MID. Post the output of "fastboot getvar all" so we can tell you what you need exactly to convert it.

Thanks @alray. I tried using these instructions today and before starting I had to to stop cause the instructions were for a MAC. I am on Windows 8.1. And no I don't have anything on this phone. It's new and I am on the screen where it would generally ask for the first start up. I have so far disabled fastboot from the battery Manager and enabled USB Debugging after unlocking the developers options. I was about to follow the instructions then and the video and the written tutorial says MAC. Now what?
P.S. - I have also downloaded the HTC sync software so that the latest drivers are installed and then I uninstalled the sync software so that I'm left with only the drivers and the sync software wont interfere in the steps to come (as I saw and read in one of the posts too).

  1. install minimal adb and fastboot, then the latest htc drivers.
  2. open minimal adb and fastboot, connect your phone to your computer.
  3. reboot your phone in bootloader mode/fastboot usb (hold power and volume down until the phone is rebooted in bootloader)
  4. in the minimal adb and fastboot command prompt, enter this command:
    Code:
    fastboot getvar all
  5. copy paste the output here (remove imei and serialno before posting)
