For this week’s HTC One ROM of the week, check out the latest Google Play Edition ROM with latest Android 4.4 KitKat KRT16S and root. This ROM is available currently for AT&T, T-Mobile, International, and Unlocked HTC One.
To install this ROM, you will need S-OFF to install the new radios. Without S-OFF, you will end up in a nasty bootloop (yep, I tried on S-ON already).
The Google Play Edition ROM brings you the latest Android 4.4 KitKat in a true-form fashion, straight from Google, made for the HTC One unlike some of the other custom Android 4.4 ROMs we have seen lately (although I have to say they are also excellent!).
Camera on the Google Play Edition ROM includes PhotoSphere (so you don’t have to install it separately) and you will be able to use Google Wallet without any carrier restrictions on all AT&T, T-Mobile, International, and Unlocked HTC One smartphones.
Overall, Google Play Edition ROM gets much better battery life over Android 4.4 AOSP ROMs and if you need to have the official Android 4.4 KitKat, this is probably the best way to go. So, if you are down with GPE 4.4, give it a whirl this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

To install, make sure you are S-OFF first!!! Then reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install radio, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
