How to make your HTC One a ‘Google Edition’ (Video)

When HTC announced the Developer Edition HTC One, we were a little surprised. Unlike years past, the company decided to play nicely with one of Android’s most unique, defining features, the third-party developers who tweak and mod devices to no end.

Samsung stole a bit of HTC’s flame at Google I/O, however, when Google’s Hugo Barra took the stage and unveiled a Galaxy S 4 running stock Android which will go on sale directly from Google Play on June 26. But reports indicate HTC has a Google Edition HTC One in the works, as well, which has sort of left a sour taste in the mouths of those who have already purchased a One, especially those who bought a Developer Edition straight from HTC.

Fortunately, it’s a rather quick fix; you can quickly turn your HTC One into a “Google Edition” in no time. Check out the video below to learn how!
