Thanks for answering.

Forgot to mention I wanted to get the Developer version and I thought it did support AWS. I'm not concerned with switching carriers as I'm on Public mobile (Telus) and their $45 deal is way better than anything Rogers/Bell offers. The developer version supports 700 Mhz and 1700Mhz/AWS bands so the phone should work with Telus/Bell etc. If I understand what extended LTE coverage is then I don't think it's a concern as I don't go out to remote areas very often. Please correct me if anything I've said here is wrong.

I'll be confirming if the imei works before bringing it to Canada.

I should clarify that its AWS support is for LTE. It doesn't support AWS over 3G frequencies which is what WIND Mobile uses.

LTE band 7 is used for Rogers' LTE Max which is capable of speeds up to 150 Mbps. Regular LTE tops out at 75Mbps. You can check out the coverage maps below to see if you'll benefit from this.

I accidentally wiped the system and everything under advanced settings in TWRP on my HTC One M8. I am still able to get into fast boot and recovery. I downloaded the zip for TWRP System Backup for Rogers but going through adb sideload gives me a "Failed" after transferring the zip even though it shows 100%.

Anyone have any tips? I assume that it is recoverable since I still have access to recovery? Many thanks!

I'd just push a new ROM to the phone and flash... Done :)

hello fellow Canadians :)

Im about to buy an M8 off someone, can you guys tell me if the model number for Rogers M8 is different fromBell/Telus? Also is it different from International version? I jus wanna make sure I get the most out of my new phone in terms of LTE/data network. I searched and it seems to me that all I need to worry about is that it is not from Sprint. I'd like to know what model number I should be looking for yo use with Rogers.
\please help

First phone I've owned where model number is not important on XDA. Lol
