Hi, I am new to this website and have never adapted my phone before. I have searched through a number of threads on this forum but I am still unsure about how to modify my device, so I would like to ask for your help and a step-by-step list on how to do the following:

I have a HTC One (M7) on the EE (UK) network and I am currently on android 4.3 because EE haven't bothered to release 4.4 + Sense 5.5 yet and haven't informed anyone about when the update will be released, so I have no hope of sense 6 being released any-time soon and I am fed up waiting.

So, I would like to change my HTC One to an unlocked international version which can receive OTA updates direct from HTC instead of waiting for EE and I would like to also flash the STOCK International Sense 6 ROM onto my phone at the same time.

Current CID: ORANG001
Current Hboot: 1.55
Current Software Number: 3.63.61.1
Radio: 4A.21.3263.04
Locked Bootloader with S-On

I would very much appreciate any help you can give.

Thank-You

Thanks for your reply, just wondering do I have to flash a custom rom or can it be a stock rom. If it has to be a custom rom which would you recommend. Also, what would I use to get s-off. Thank-You

It's best to be on the stock rom if you are already on one. Use firewater to s-off your phone and then convert to the developer edition.

Edit: a rom with an insecure kernel is best for s-off as clsa has mentioned below.

I have a YouTube tutorial for the conversion part if you'd like to see.

I normally recommend ARHD 31.6 because of the insecure kernel
The Stock kernel doesn't play nice getting s-off

Ah ok. I read about that somewhere. Sorry I'll correct that!

So, after I flash ARHD 31.6 and then I s-off with firewater, how would I go about getting the phone ready to receive OTA updates direct from HTC for the UK unlocked version. (I would prefer changing to UK unlocked rather than the Developer version mentioned above)

Also, have you got a link to the version of firewater relevant for me. Thanks

Did you watch the video above ?
the important thing is changing the CID and MID to match what ever version you choose. Then flash that RUU

I did watch that video but i wasn't sure if that was the final step in order to receive OTA updates direct from HTC because I remember reading somewhere that you need stock recovery.

The Guru reset installs the Stock recovery all you have to do is choose it
