There's nothing like a completely open device if you really want to tweak things and flash all sorts of ill-advised software. HTC isn't going to make it easy, though. Getting s-off is necessary to do all that fun stuff, and now the recently released Firewater tool has been updated with support for the M8.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Has Sprint's One M8 For $150, Also Comes With A $50 Gift Card For New Lines

Amazon is no stranger to offering solid deals on brand-spankin-new handsets (and with Wirefly out of the way, it essentially has little-to-no competition these days), and it's now offering a great deal for potential Sprint customers who are considering the HTC One M8.

For the time being, Sprintsters can grab the handset for $150 on-contract – a good price in itself – but those who open a new line of service will also get a $50 Amazon gift card.

HTC Has Posted Kernel Source For The One M8 Google Play Edition [Update: Pulled By HTC, Alternative Download Available]

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.

[Weekend Poll] Did You / Are You Going To Buy An HTC One M8 (2014)?

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.

[New App] HTC's Dot View Case For The One M8 Gets Its Own App In The Play Store

[New App] HTC's Dot View Case For The One M8 Gets Its Own App In The Play Store

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.

HTC Posts A Bunch Of Official First Look Videos Showing Off The M8's Camera And Other Features

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.
