Hi all,
I'm about to get a M8 in a few day and I've been reading the threads associated with this phone but I still want to ask a few questions. I've always rock a custom rom on my AT&T S4 . Can you you guys point me to a few essential thread on the M8 since I'm new to T-mobile and looking to root this phone. What would say are the first steps to make sure I don't brick my device. I'm especially worried since my wife is getting the same phone Any tips would be appreciated.

1: unlock the bootloader
2: flash or boot a custom recovery
3: make a FULL nandroid backup of your stock rom
4: decide if you want to s-off your device, firewater or sunshine method
5: flash custom roms

4 is not mandatory to be able to flash custom roms.
