So I recently got myself an HTC One M8 Google Play Edition.

I tried to root it and unlocked the bootloader with ADB Commands.

Everything worked fine until I tried to install a custom firmware. It kept me in a bootloop and kept going back into TWRP Recovery.

I found out afterwards that my phone was still S ON.

For some reason, I was able to install Skydragon 3.0.1 custom rom for GPE and I finally got the phone working and usable again.

I thought that it was my chance to try and get S OFF with firewater.

Again, I tried doing so with ADB Command and I got the message that my device is patched by HTC, I am out of luck.

So now I'm stuck on Skydragon 3.0.1 rom. Not to say that it's a bad thing. The rom works GREAT!

But I want to revert back into stock rom and restart anew so I can maybe try and get S off from the beginning because SkyDragon has an OTA.

Apparently it's the OTA that is preventing me completely running firewater.

Is there any way to fix this? Can I still get S OFF from where I am or is there a way to go back to factory settings before all the rooting?

I haven't found any other roms that would install on my phone.

Please help!!!!! =(

Did you try installing an old 4.4.2 gpe ruu. You should be able to run it with son.

You're gonna have to use Sunshine and pay the $25 to get S-OFF, firewater won't work now it's been patched (the system, NOT the ROM btw)

Apparently the ROM has to be as stock as possible for it to work (I didn't have to as I used Firewater a few months ago when I first got my M8)

It says that I cannot run sunshine because of my kernel/rom combination. I need to flash a sense-based rom.

Problem is, when I read online, I saw that I cannot flash a sense-based rom onto an GPE because of the partition difference or something.

Thus why I wanted to get S-off

I'm on skydragon GPE v3.0.0 with SkyDragon V2.0.1 kernel by the way

Did you try a 4.4.2 ruu? It might be in the gpe conversion thread if not I can send you a Drop box link.

I could find that in the htc dev website right? But if you could still send me the link so I can see if it's the same, it would be appreciated boss.

but I thought since I'm on 4.4.4, I couldn't downgrade?
