no. that is simply the build that the rom used for a "base". it doesnt really mean anything more than that.
Question : I am thinking of doing google play edition because I was reading last night that if I do that I can get OTA's from google instead of t-mobile. am I correct or misguided again?
you are misguided. the GPE uses htcs own kernel,and the updates come from htc,not from google.
its neat to have stock android from htc,and in the past ive been a HUGE AOSP fan. keep in mind tho,that cm and GPE roms will not have boomsound,blinkfeed,zoe,etc.
Question : If version number included in rom name == x.xx.401. does that mean I should not flash it onto a tmobile device == x.xx.531. ?
nope,doesnt mean that at all. all gsm roms are compaible with all m7_ul,and even with the m7_u wich has no LTE. i run maximus on my t mobile variant,wich is based on 3.62.401.1
the only roms you should NOT flash are those intended for cdma sprint and verizon devices.
hope that helps
