HTC One Google Play Editions Joins KitKat Team, OTA Available to Download

The Android 4.4 craziness is ongoing. More and more devices are getting official updates to KitKat. Today, we are happy to announce that the Google Play edition of  is now a member of the KitKat family. A few days ago, we wrote about how HTC had delivered a GPe KitKat code to Google, and they were waiting for Google to push the update. It appears that wait is over, as the first batches of HTC One devices have already received their OTA updates.

Soon, all HTC One devices should receive the update. But if you want to get in on the action early, XDA Senior Member saturn_de posted a link to the OTA zip. This update is 320 MB, and it contains all the KitKat goodies we’ve seen on the Nexus 5 except Google Experience Launcher. Fear not, as it can easily be taken from the system dump of Nexus 5.There are also plenty of alternatives available on the forum with even more customization. The update can be sideloaded or directly flashed to the phone with the stock recovery. All you need to do is put the package on your local storage and apply the update.

If you can’t wait to get the newest update for your HTC One Google Play edition, download the update here and share your opinion with us in the comments.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
