    Hi I just switched my iphone to HTC one M8 and it has been great. However, when I tried to update the system, it always showed this phone has a "variant system version" and would not let me install. I entered the bootloader screen and it shows me this:

    LOCKED
    M8_UL CA PVT SHIP S-ON
    HBOOT-3.19.0.0000
    RADIO-1.2421331147A1.09G
    OpenDSP-v48.2.2-00564-M8974_FO.1211
    OS-4.16.1540.8
    eMMC-boot 2048MB

    I bought this phone on ebay and the seller indicated it's an unlocked phone. Anyone knows how to solve this problem so I can update the system? Thanks a lot!

    Try HTC One (M8)

    There are a lot of developers there, and they know the phone well.
