Turn Your HTC One into a Google Play Edition
Just yesterday, we covered how Google had finally decided to update the HTC One Google Play edition to Android 4.4 KitKat. We say “finally” because HTC had stated that the update was ready ten days earlier on their official Twitter account.
Regardless of timing, the update is a good thing—even if the Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T variants of the OEM-skinned Moto X managed to receive their updates before either of the two Google Play edition devices. But up until now, this only helped the few who actually purchased the Google Play edition devices. Now thanks to a guide by XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer graffixnyc, you can essentially turn your standard HTC One into an HTC One Google Play edition.
We’re not going to lie to you. This is going to be a somewhat complicated process, and it’s not meant for the faint of heart. As such, you need to already be S-Off.

And if you’re confused, it’s best to turn around and walk away slowly.
Make your way over to the original thread to get started. Just please do yourself a favor and read through the entire OP and make sure you know what you are doing before getting started. Nobody likes ending up with a paperweight.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
