I think its a issue with the camera itself nothing to do with updates
I still have alot of purple in low light shots
mine is a early htc one developers edition 64gb so I think more older handsets are having this issue
So I will be unrooting my htc one and im gonna return it when the htc 2 comes out
So the will upgrade me free of charge I still have 2 years and 4 months warranty remaining
I thing anyone that has this issue take your hand set back under warranty
End of story
Not update related its a camera issue

After spending one day with the update to Kitkat 4.4 & Sense 5.5 on Dev Edition: very dissapointing update ! Nothing special new, no Kitkat dialer, problems with back button, problems with dialing a number from phone book, I think that they wanted to be fast with update but there is nothing special to be satisfied...

As often as flash gets updated, I would be surprised if the issue isn't quickly resolved.
