[Update: OTA Available!] HTC One Google Play Edition Now Receiving Android 4.4.2 OTA, Framework and Kernel Source Available
Update: The OTA URL has now been captured for your sideloading pleasure, thanks to XDA Forum Member Sapplegater.
Just a few short days ago, we saw Android 4.4.2 roll out to the current Nexus fleet. And two days after that, Google published the source code and factory restore images for this latest version. Now, we’re happy to report that the Android 4.4.2 update has now begun rolling out to the Google Play edition of the HTC One.
The update comes in the form of a staged rollout, so not everyone will receive the update immediately. However, we’ll be sure to report back as soon as the update links are captured. However, that’s not all the news. In addition to rolling out the update to end users, HTC has also released the GPL-compliant kernel source code for the Android 4.4.2 update, as well as proprietary framework files for the device.
Developers looking to start building Android 4.4.2 from source for the HTC One should make their way over to the HTCDev Devcenter download links below:
Good job, HTC, on getting this ready so quickly. Have you received Android 4.4.2 on your HTC One GPe yet? If so, or if you’re impatiently waiting for your turn, be sure to share your experiences in the comments below. Also make your way to this thread in the the HTC One forums to get your hands on the OTA URL as soon as it is captured.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
