    HI everyone,

    I bought a used HTC M8 from someone in Singapore. Apparently, it is an AT&T set. Now I have an issue to update the phone to the latest version of the software.Currently the phone is running with 5.0.1 Android version. When try to update , a message popping up telling it is using a modified version of software and asking me to contact the provider.

    I'm in Malaysia and what should i do to update the phone to the latest software.

    Much thanks
    Krish

    The phone may have been rooted. You should be able to flash the stock ROM on the phone. Can you show a screenshot of the software information?

    Ok. You should be able to use a Windows machine to reflash the most updated firmware. However, I have little experience with using a phone from one country in another. If you flash the AT&T version of the ROM, it may not work where you are. That may be the reason for the custom firmware.
