@dmmarck, Sad to see your leaving the HTC party for the Nexus. I'm always a day late and a dollar short, lol. But honestly I'm super happy I picked mine up. It will most likely be the last unlock-able phone Verizon sees for a long time, if ever again. With S-Off and the ability to flash AOSP or even GPE, this phone is a beast. Pretty sure my Razr was not going to see the 4.4 update, lol.
Have fun with that Nexus, I'm excited to see what you all think about them and if it is going to live up to all the hype.
@Ahowe125, the One's a great phone, but I certainly foresaw this inevitability (ask @creccaj).
Glad to see you were able to get SOFF; AT&T had a radio OTA months ago that sealed ours, so I had to spend hours trying to revert. Well worth it.
I assume you can't do a full GPE conversion? What does the GPE port have, just a ROM? I highly suggest trying to get the new HBOOT.
It would seem all the different stock versions are on the S-Off list. So Verizon has not patched it yet.
Its not a full GPE, but a Port built on top of sense framework. Its really kinda a cross between Sense, GPE and AOSP. Pretty close to a pure google experience. It still has Beats Audio and a few other things from the stock ROM.
Eclipse v1.2 GPE Port
I did end up flashing a new custom HBoot from This Thread on XDA - Not sure exactly what I got flashing it, but it was just on my list of things to do.
So I used rumrunner to achieve S-Off, unlock the bootloader, and get root. Then flashed the custom Hboot, then flashed TWRP and finally made a backup and flashed my ROM. It was a bit different then I'm use to on the locked down Razr using Safestrap, but overall it was pretty straight forward.
I like the GPE Port, but he plans on making a 4.4 AOSP that I'll end up switching to as long as its not too buggy.
