[Update: ZIP Files] The HTC One M7 And M8 Google Play Edition Are Receiving An Android 5.0.1 OTA Update Now

Lollipop is slowly, slowly making its way to all of the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices available (yes, N7 LTE owners, we hear you). If you purchased the "pure," AOSP-packing version of either the HTC One M7 from 2013 or the flagship One M8 earlier this year, you should be getting an over-the-air update to Android 5.0 soon. We're seeing tips from owners of both Google Play Edition phones.

Official Team Win Recovery Project Build Now Available For The Verizon HTC One M7

Verizon tends to actively discourage users from rooting and otherwise modifying their phones - that is to say, the users' phones, not Verizon's. Despite a draconian bootloader policy, the HTC One M7 (2013) has had at least some form of S-Off available since October of last year, and Justin Case's Sunshine tool has taken care of the more recent software builds. It's a little late to the party, but the official build of the Team Win Recovery Project is now available for the HTC One on Big Red.
