I heard rumor of kit kat 4.4 becoming available for htc one max on Dec 25th. Any confirmation to this? If so, will we need to do anything to a rooted phone to get the oTA update?

where did you hear that?

and, generally speaking, if you want a factory update, you need to bring your phone back to its stock state..

Don't expect kit kat until after the release of the M8

Sounds like that article is for Asian versions of the phone.

Maybe the One Max will be different, but on my wife's rooted, unlocked bootloader, & s-off Galaxy Nexus, installing KitKat meant I could either lock on to 3G and make phone calls or obtain 4G lock only but couldn't do both. I stayed up half the night researching it, and apparently KitKat was having problems playing nice with custom rooted devices. I finally had to drop back to 4.3 for the Nexus to operate correctly.

Again your experience could be different, but at least do your research before going forward if/when we ever receive KitKat.

the OS you are on has nothing to do with it; the only thing that matters is whether you are on a GSM network, or a CDMA..

Don't worry HTC is not going to make their phone & software that bad

I guess it's because the software for the GNex, the AOSP guys would fix those soon

On the second thought, The HTC one already has 4.4 for the dev versions and i have not heard any complaints on root.

Everything I am reading says the One max, is essentially a One with a bigger screen and a fingerprint scanner. Will the One custom roms not work at all on the max? If all the hardware is essentially the same, why wouldn't it work with some ppi tweaks?

BTW, not sure about the Galaxy Nexus, but I have tried two different variations of Kit Kat 4.4 on my One, and both work flawless. I am running the Beanstalk variant now.

Yeah, the custom rom for the one's should run.. I guess someone should just try... Hope to do it in the weekend.
