Default [Status] VZW M8 Bootloader Unlock / S-Off Method

Current Status for m8 Bootloader Unlock / S-Off: RELEASED

Update 4/6/14: A Firewater S-Off method is released for the HTC M8. Please see the following tweet: https://twitter.com/firewaterdevs/st...34672063156224

Go here to do it: http://firewater-soff.com/

----(Begin Old OP)----

The HTC M8 has launched for Big Red, and much to our dismay, HTCDev does not allow for us to unlock the bootloader through the traditional avenues.

Presently, there is no known workaround.

Thus, this is a thread for conversations regarding any progress being made on a bootloader unlock/S-Off method for the VZW HTC One M8.

Try to avoid being speculative as much as possible. Please post any updates you see in other threads and on other sites. Also, if notable champions of previous unlock methods/exploits want to post their efforts here (*ehem beaups et. al...), by all means, feel free!

This is not a bounty thread.

Had my M8 since yesterday morning. I tried HTC Dev Unlock as soon as I got it hoping it would work. No such luck. I hope I'm wrong but I think we have a long, long wait for S-Off.

On the M7 there was a 5k bounty to get S-Off. It took from March 8th until October 7th to get S-Off on the M7. Last I heard only around 1/2 the money was ever received by beaups.

No one has been able to achieve S-Off with software on any M7 with 4.4.2 so I doubt anything is close on the M8.

jtag service. They need to take your phone apart, pass. I'm sure the Java card would work too but most are looking for a software exploit. Other methods are risky and mean your need to send you phone away. Unless you want to buy a 1200 Java card.
