    Default HTC One E8 (M8Sw) English Based Android OS needed

    Hello,

    So i just got my HTC One E8 (also known as the M8Sw dual sim phone) from China. While I have changed the language to English, there are a lot of Chinese pre-installed apps on the device, i have uninstalled most of them. a few refuse to be uninstalled.
    What baffles me most is all Google apps are missing, mail, play store, etc. I am considering re-installing the android base OS for HTC One E8, pure English, non operator based OS.

    Can i get some pointers on where i can download the software?

    Regards

    What is so terrifying is i can't sync my contacts and calendar using the native email app on the phone, and using Microsoft active sync doesn't work because the google account is not a business account. i am really upset right now...

    I don't think there's an English rom available yet, so you will have to bear with the stock apps. However, you can download and install GMS from HTC Marketplace which comes with your E8. GMS is a Google pack that you can install without rooting your Android phones from China. I am using an E8 myself 😉
