HTC One GSM receives Google Edition ROM

While HTC did imply that they may release an official Google Edition ROM for their early HTC One adopters, this ROM comes courtesy of the XDA Developers community. The software has been extracted from the HTC One Google Edition and will work on any GSM HTC One device.

Just keep in mind that your device will have to be rooted, busyboxed, odexed, and repackaged with custom recovery in order to install the ROM.

Users who have installed this custom ROM have reported that everything work well, except for data usage charts, which doesn't work. Other than that you get a clean version of Android with an updated camera and all the functionality available on the HTC One GE.
