Default Firewater and latest AT&T HTC One M8

Just an FYI. I just received my replacement AT&T HTC One M8. Still has Android 4.4.2 but firewater does not work anymore for s-off. Had to purchase sunshine. My 3 previous AT&T M8 all worked well with firewater. I assume, they have updated the HBOOT. Just giving you guys a heads up.

Did you guys unlock using HTC or is there a temp root method that works with sunshine without having to void warranty?

Don't worry about voiding warranty. AT&T only cares about physical damage to the phones.

Wow, I got mine last week too, I got the unlock, root and firewater s-off done last Wed. the 6th.
I used HTC Dev to unlock and Vomer's guide. My adb and fastboot commands went awol from my pc right after I completed the s-off. Had some stuff not working right until I got that fixed and the 2.22.1540.3 firmware flashed.

Just mine today, developer edition straight from HTC (Let's Talk). Loaded TWRP, rooted and used Firewater with no problem.

Chiming in, picked my phone up yesterday and Firewater didn't work. Sunshine worked fine though, and in my opinion it was worth the $25 not to spend six hours trying to jack around with the phone. vOv Still, more of a pain than the Nexus 5 was though

Up and running CM 11 now--tried Viper and the Revolution but they just weren't my style.
