Verizon's HTC One getting Android 4.3 today


Sorry to hijack first comment but does anyone know if I can still keep root with Rootkeeper with this update? And if the 4.3 update breaks S-Off from Rumrunner?

If you have root and s-off, shouldn't you be using Kit Kat from the developer edition or GPe if you don't want Sense?

What seems funny, is that 4.3 was released alongside my tablet, and it seems like that has been a pretty long time ago.

I gave up on the update. I'm now enjoying CM 11 running 4.4.2. Goodbye Sense and hopefully soon, Verizon.

This is the first Android phone I haven't loaded a custom ROM on. I actually like the job HTC did with Sense this time around. It's fast and everything works as it should. BTW, I'm also loving Verizon service eventhough I also still use T-Mobile and AT&T on my other devices.

I couldn't agree more the HTC One on Verizon runs like a champ and I have not had the urge to root and crack flash.

Totally Agree. My first non-nexus phone and I'm honestly not dying to root it at all. And with all the extra free time I have from NOT reading pages and pages of ROM forum threads....

So good to be apart of the party. No I just have see how far behind my KitKat update will be.

Are there any noteworthy improvements? I just finished the update and there's nothing I can see. I use Nova so am I missing some changes in the UI?

It going to be a while trust me it's verizon but you have a little piece of awesomeness no matter what version you're on.

I'm having trouble finding any real improvement over the 4.2 we had. I think Verizon just needed an excuse to add more bloatware to it lol

Just download.and it's not installing.version the same like before.Any clue?!

I had to restart my phone after downloading the update in order for the installation prompt to show up. Maybe that'll work?

I just finished installing it. I have something in my notification bar saying "Device Manager is running". It won't me swipe the message away. Help!

It will go away after it slowly delivers it message patience my friend

OMG! This device is just getting 4.3 now? Really? 4.3 was released back in July and now its past mid December. Then again with it being on Verizon, this shouldn't come as a surprise. Way to go Verizon! You make my choice of leaving you feel so much better.

Updated...disabled the new bloatware....not really seeing any other changes at all. I think they just threw us a bone till 4.4 is ready.
