[Q] How do I get to the bootloader screen

I tried getting to the bootloader screen on my HTC One M8. I turned it off, wait 5 seconds, then hold power down, and press power for 2-3 seconds, while still holding volume down. It never gets to the bootloader screen. It always does a regular boot.

Don't know if this matters, but I did root with WeakSauce successfully.

Haven't tried that yet. So there's no way to do it without plugging in to a PC? I thought it should work on the device too.

I believe you have to turn off fast boot in Settings->Power and then you can do it by holding the volume down and power buttons at the same time.
