Hi all-

I just received my HTC One M8 Google Play Edition today. I successfully unlocked the bootloader (I see the open padlock every time it boots), but I'm running into trouble with TWRP. I downloaded TWRP from this thread. Since I'd like to get OTA updates in the future, I am attempting to boot (not flash!) TWRP using
$ ./adb reboot bootloader
$ ./fastboot boot ~/Downloads/openrecovery-twrp-
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  1.251s]
OKAY [  0.001s]
finished. total time: 1.252s
but after the second command, the phone just reboots to the normal system. I have attempted renaming TWRP to recovery.img, but that didn't change the behavior. I have tried a factory reset, and that didn't change the behavior. If I attempt to manually enter recovery from HBoot, I get the dead android logo.

I really just want to flash SuperSU.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
