Shut down phone.
Turn it on
Hold volume up+power button until it restarts
As soon as you get the black screen for restart release power button and hold volume down.

If your timing is right you will enter bootloader.
Just tried it and it definitely works,

now one more question please ..... can i flash stock RUU file downloaded from htc dev website as i have unlocked bootloader and S- on??? or should i go for any custom rom or any cwm backup one?

so now i cant use my mobile .... and also i couldn't enter into fastboot or cwm recovery because in settings options fastboot was tick and now i cant enter settings.... neither i can turn on wifi as well.... all is finished.... please help me how to re flash the whole rom again?? can i do it with computer somehow?????? what are my options??



are you able to install apps?
if you are, try Tom toolbox/ pro.
that'll provide options to boot into recovery or fastboot.
keep us updated

There is no RUUs available from my knowledge except one for Sprint.
If you have a nandroid backup just restore it.

You can try a custom rom or a cwm backup but it needs to match your cid

ok i have an idea but let you first advice me.... i m thinking to flash any backup available yes i know it will screw my radio but then i will flash stock recovery and then i will re lock my bootloader and then i will install my related RUU version of phone software which was come preinstalled... i have stock RUU for that downloaded from htc dev. what you say? will it bring my radio's back?

Can you point me to where did you download an RUU for M8? As i said i don't think there are any available.

The easiest think to do if you want to go back to stock is to

fastboot getvar all

and download the stock ROM and recovery for your cid

These are not full RUU's. You will probably screw up your phone again with these.

please run this command and post the output hiding the sensitive info like imei, etc

fastboot getvar all

bootloader shows firmware info whereas Settings-About-Software shows info from the ROM
