Phone on and fastboot enabled :

Open a fastboot terminal on the pc and type :

Adb reboot bootloader

That should get you started.


Mr. Hofs,

Thank you so much. I was finally able to fix my HTC M8 with your method advice only. I have been googling a lot of other solutions that worked for other people but they never mentioned to hold the power button the whole time and just switch the volume up button to volume down at the right moment. Hats off to you sir!
