Update: HTC has pulled down the kernel source and framework files for the time being. The reason is unclear. Perhaps they were posted early, but we'll keep an eye on them. You can grab the kernel source from this rehosted link and framework files from this one for now.

We're still a few weeks away from the ship date for the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition, but the kernel source is just a click away.

You've taken the plunge and thrown down some cold hard cash on a brand new HTC One M8, but you're feeling stifled because Verizon doesn't want to allow the bootloader to be unlocked? You might want to check out WeakSauce, a handy new root exploit by XDA recognized developers Justin Case (jcase) and beaups. It's a simple tool that can set up root on both the HTC One M8 and last year's model, the HTC One (codenamed M7).

Now that HTC's latest and greatest has been unveiled (we also went hands-on), it's time for a rather predictable query to you, our readers: did you buy one, or are you going to?

The new One boasts a slightly larger display than last year's model, and HTC new dual camera setup allows you to get a sort of knockoff-Lytro experience with your photos. The much-loved BoomSound speakers are making a return, as is the bulk of the original One's styling, apart from some slick new finishes.

Update: It looks like users can unlock the AT&T version of the HTC One M8 with the HTCdev unlock tool, at least for the time being. A build of TWRP for the AT&T model is already available on XDA. Hat tip to Google+ reader Brian Haslip.

Wow, developers aren't wasting any time when it comes to cracking open new high-end hardware. Just a few days after a root method was released for the Galaxy S5, the folks at Team Win Recovery Project have already prepared TWRP for both the international and Sprint models of the new HTC One M8.

HTC has released a whole slew of kernel source files for the 2013 version of the One today, following the gradual rollout of Android 4.4.2 to the device around the world. There are, frankly, too many variants to name in this post individually, but some of the highlights include Vodafone UK, AT&T, Sprint, O2 in Germany and the UK, and a number of unlocked variants. The screenshots below tell the full story.

Verizon is already selling the new HTC One, and you can get two of them cheap as long as you don't mind signing a new contract. The buy-one-get-one-free deal on Verizon is enticing if you need two phones, but it gets even better. You can get 30% off the cost of the phone you're actually paying for.

HTC has apparently dived head-first into a decentralized software support model. Translation: they're throwing everything they possibly can onto the Play Store, presumably so they don't have to wait for a full carrier update to tweak or improve their various Sense apps. The latest one to land in the Play Store is HTC Dot View, the support app for the interesting Dot View case, a cover that puts a perforated design to use.

Well, that didn't take long. After getting word yesterday that the update was ready, Ma Bell has started rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat to the HTC One Mini. Along with 4.4.2, the update includes HTC Sense 5.5 with all the OEM-specific tweaks you'd expect.

Today's the HTC One M8's big day, and new shots and videos of the handset keep pouring in. HTC has now shared three "First Look" clips to its YouTube account that primarily focus on the phone's camera. That so-called "Duo Camera" is the device's most peculiar feature, so it's worth taking a look at just what it does.

This first video is the most general of the bunch. It touches on the M8's metal unibody design, Motion Launch (answer the phone by lifting it to your ear), and a few camera editing features.

Update: According to this Google+ post, pre-orders for the phone will begin later today. There's still no word on a shipping date.

Update #2: You can now press the "Add to cart" button. The phone is currently scheduled to leave Google's warehouse in 2-3 weeks:

One of the more interesting aspects of HTC's One M8 launch is the rapid way the company is releasing the phone, with major American and Canadian carriers getting access to the device in one day or less.
