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
