I came up on this thread which linked me to

I have no prior experience rooting except my Evo 4G LTE a few years ago. I'm cautious about that link though. I thought in order to root you had to use the command line and all that. I just want to be well informed in case I brick it. Don' have the cash at the moment to buy a new phone if that did happen.

Edit: I am running 4.4.3

I'm pretty sure that this program has to "re-root" every time you startup your device. Your best bet is to unlock the bootloader in HTC DEV, flash a recovery and download SU, which can be done by yourself which isn't really hard, just look up "How to root HTC one m8 on a mac" and follow the tutorial step by step. DON'T root if you don't know what your'e doing, and remember if you're stuck in a bootloop but able to restart your phone into bootloader and recovery (soft brick) you're most probably fine .

That guide will work on 4.4.3 right?
