Default Unlock T-Mobile Bootloader

Do y'all think we will be able to s-off/unlock the t-mobile m8 boot loader?

If not I'd rather deal with the dev edition since I'm in a 1900 reframed area and am not dependent on the tmobile model bands.
Device: T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II SGH-T989
Radio: T989UVKL1
Current ROM: GBaxe EX v1.6
Kernel: Faux v010

Honestly, yeah we should be able to do the Dev unlock through HTC and then s-off will come later

Also, how do you know that you're in the reframed area?? I'd love to see if I am also.
Personal Phone: LG G3

Business Phone: iPhone 5s

Here's the official list:

There's also an unofficial user contributed map floating around.

Firewater Devs Release S-Off for the HTC One M8!

Has anyone been able to try this on T-Mobiles version of the M8? I know some people out there already have the Tmo version before the official release date this Friday. I probably won't be buying one until June or July.

WeakSauce does NOT work on T-Mobile.

However, from my personal experience with a T-Mobile variant this evening, HTCDev works to unlock it. You can then subsequently root the device through custom Recovery, then use Firewater to S-Off.

Please do not Personal Message me for help or troubleshooting. They will be ignored. Use the forums!

Thank you very very much for the reply. I kind of figured the HTC unlock would work but was going to try to avoid it if possible and just use root to obtain S-Off. Oh well. Voided warranty here I come. Lol
