Some time ago I described a method to format the /data partition on the HTC One (M7) - How to: Fix a corrupted DATA partition on the HTC One. This method is suitable for more HTC devices (all with EXT4 support) and with the mkfs.ext4 tool you can format system and cache partitions as well. All you need to know is the proper /dev/block/mmcblk0pXY number of the partition you want to format.
If you don't want to wait for the OTA notification you can already flash latest system dumps. For more details please visit my XDA thread.
If you are a power user and a custom ROMs flasher, you can also grab the latest Android Revolution HD based on the 2.22.401.4 update with many extra goodies under the hood.
Finally, if you only want to root your device and keep the rest stock, feel free to visit my XDA thread with a special rooting tools.
All above files can be accessed via Downloads Page on my blog.
