THIS THREAD IS FOR GPE OWNERS TO DISCUSS OTA UPDATES. IT IS NOT FOR DISCUSSION OF HOW TO CONVERT A REGULAR M8 TO A GPE, NOR IS IT FOR DISCUSSION ON HOW TO FLASH ROMS.

Hi Everyone,

As I do with all Nexus and GPE devices, I intend to maintain a thread here with links to all the stock OTA updates for the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition. Each time there is an OTA update, its direct link on Google's servers will be posted here for reference and posterity. I also mirror these files at http://www.randomphantasmagoria.com/htc-one-m8/m8_google.

Any questions about flashing these OTA updates can be discussed and answered here as well. In addition, if you get an OTA update, please pull the URL from logcat so it can be posted here.

Current firmware (m8_google): Android 5.1/LMY47O.H10

LMY47O.H10 from LMY47O.H9 - http://android.clients.google.com/p...E_4.04.1700.10-4.04.1700.9_release_453088.zip

Since we do not currently have any OTA updates nor does anyone have the device yet, I'm merely waiting for someone to get the actual device and provide the following information:

1. HBOOT version (can be retrieved from the bootloader screen)
2. Baseband version
3. The values of ro.build.date.utc and ro.build.fingerprint from /system/build.prop.

Please make sure to get this information before applying any out-of-the-box OTA update that might be available for the phone. At that stage, you can feel free to apply any OTA update that's available, then please get this information again post-update.

Thank you!
Here you go...
ro.bootloader: 3.18.0.0000
ro.baseband: 1.14.21331931.LA02_2G
gsm.version.baseband: 1.14.21331931.LA02_2G_20.30A.4145.01L
ro.build.date.utc: 1395410996
ro.build.fingerprint: htc/m8_google/htc_m8:4.4.2/KOT49H.H16/326432:user/release-keys
ro.build.description: 1.16.1700.16 CL326432 release-keys

You, sir, are awesome. Thank you! Just out of curiosity, is this the actual shipping firmware that the first round of devices will ship with or is that prerelease?

You are indeed correct with all your info. It matches perfectly to the device that Android Central got for unboxing and hands-on. Thanks again for your help!

Hey guys,

Today is Nexus OTA day, Android 4.4.3/KTU48F. So, if history holds up, we'll be seeing GPE OTAs in about 2 weeks. This will obviously be the first OTA for the M8 GPE. I just want to put it on everyone's radar that if you get the OTA, please post the filename here. You can get it from logcat. If you get the OTA, but don't know how to get the filename, let me know and I'll help you out.

Thanks!

So, I'm hoping someone here on XDA actually owns an M8 GPE (a real one, not a converted one) and will be able to help get the OTA URLs. Do I have any volunteers? Thanks in advance!

What's the difference if it's a real one or converted one? The ota will be the same.. The URL will be the same... The file will be the same.. It shouldn't matter if it's a real one or a converted one (which in the system's eye there is no difference between a converted one and "real" one.)

By "converted", I meant people who are just running a GPE ROM. If there's a full conversion that allows you to use the bootloader and radio as well, and allows you to accept OTAs, then yeah, by all means, help a brother out!

Ahh OK.. Yeah, I did the full conversion (my thread is in dev) I have a fully converted gpe (radio, bootloader, recovery etc..) So when the ota drops I'll post a link for ya if someone doesn't beat me to it.

hey guys. So I have a "real" GPE from google. I've been reading a lot around here as my only past experience is with samsung and nexus devices so this is a bit different.
It's also hard cause there is much more info on the carrier devices and hard to sift through and see what applies to the GPE variant.
So I've learned my system partition is different. I can look into that further I'm pretty good on samsung on messing with stock images and adjusting them.

Bootloader unlock is trivial on GPE, fastboot oem unlock.
I flashed twrp and rooted.

Last thing is s-off. Is s-off easier on GPE like bootloader unlock or would I still need firewater for it?

To the point of this thread, when an OTA comes out will that effect s-off? I imagine it'd remove root but I believe I can edit the image to retain root and flash with TWRP easy enough, I've done it on samsung and nexus devices enough.

It definitely shouldn't affect S-OFF, but as with any OTA with any device known to man, it will kill root. But since you have an unlocked bootloader, you can just reroot after the OTA flashes. :good:

How's the gpe radio compared to tmobiles?

I'm on wifi only right now. I ordered an isis sim so i'm waiting on that before moving my number from the nexus 5.

and for s-off I still need firewater then... gpe doesn't make that any easier correct?
I really dont mind s-on currently, I have xposed, and modules running just fine. I just feel like I should do it, just in case.... I'll have more options in the future.

Correct. The GPE only allows unlocking the bootloader. S-OFF is not available through officially sanctioned channels.
