If you own an HTC One GPE, it's time to start keeping an eye on your system update screen. HTC has released kernel source and framework files for the new update and people are beginning to report receiving the actual update. The firmware version is 3.62.1700.1, which is Android 4.4.2/KOT49H. This brings the HTC One GPE up to date with current Nexus devices.


If you want to know what's changed between 4.4 and 4.4.2, check out our comparison. Specifically worth noting is that 4.4.2 removes App Ops and closes a known SMS exploit that was discovered about a month ago. Let us know in the comments if you receive the OTA update and if you notice any notable changes. The OTA update rolls out in stages, but if you don't want to wait, and have bootloader S-OFF, you can download the OTA directly from Google's servers and flash it manually.
