As you probably know, HTC One came out in a few variants. I described these different versions here and here. To sum up:



The important part is, that users with U variant (GSM only) can use custom ROMs based on UL (GSM/LTE) RUU. It is already confirmed by one user, who flashed custom ROM based on 1.28.401.7 m7_ul software on his m7_u unit. Don't be confused - this probably won't enable LTE support on your GSM unit. We are not yet sure if it's possible at all, but it's very likely that once we have S-OFF and SuperCID for HTC One, flashing entire RUU from m7_ul on m7_u device may enable LTE support (of course your network provider has to support LTE as well).

I will keep you posted once I have some more details.

Thanks goodman_east for sharing some info with me!

Very happy about this. With the one x here in the states we had a limited amount of ROMs due to the hardware variations. This is much better news.

Thanks Mike

And here I was hours ago trying to insist that HTC One has only the same hardware and is universally flashable yet all users tend not to believe me and keep pointing out the One X & X+.

One X+ and One X have different chip (AP37 vs AP33), different partitions table (separate sdcard partition vs /data/media) and few other differences as well.

I know! lol yet they keep on insisting that the HTC One is the same until I gave up :p

Really wonder why some people who have insufficient knowledge on how things work tend to not believe advices given to them by someone who knows more than them. :fingers-crossed:

So this means the ATT One and The HTC Dev Edition One, and the European are the same, PN0710000 right? That is great news!! European and US versions finally are identical!! I guess the Mods jumped to soon when creating the separate ATT One Forum.. The One X+ needed separating bad because hardware was different, yet they didnt. Now hardware is the same and they are separated..

I will probably be getting the HTC One from T-Mobile UK ia when they get it in stock. Rather than go with 4GEE, I decided to stick with T-Mobile 3G since the price difference probably doesn't justify it.

Would the phone that I probably would receive from T-Mobile be the UL model?

Yes it would :) However, you will have T-mobile branding (T-Mobile CID) which means updates may be slower

I didn't say that. I don't know what is MID of U.S. variant(s).

Thanks for the speedy response! Would this mean that if I wanted I could upgrade to 4GEE without changing phone?

Yes you can use 4G LTE. Fyi 4GEE is a brand name, it's EE. But you're using T-Mobile (are they joined with EE? I can't remember)
