Hey guys i just flashed the 1.54 firmware and in the process i relocked the phone. I flashed the firmware and everything works fine, but now i can't unlock it for some reason i'm S-OFF and my CID is 11111111. I tried the command to flash the token but no luck and have even tried getting a new token.

C:\Users\haswell\Desktop\platform-tools>fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
target reported max download size of 1830711296 bytes
sending 'unlocktoken' (0 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.124s]
writing 'unlocktoken'...
FAILED (remote: unlock token check failed)
finished. total time: 0.129s

i've also tried this (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708571) however i got this:

1|shell@htc_m8:/ $ echo -ne "HTCU" | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 bs=1 seek=33796
lock/mmcblk0p2 bs=1 seek=33796 <
/dev/block/mmcblk0p2: cannot open for write: Permission denied
1|shell@htc_m8:/ $
C:\Users\haswell\Desktop\platform-tools>

i also realized that my recovery is no longer working as well as superSU... please someone help me

You only need to enter the token on your original unlock. After that, you can lock unlock as much as you want, no token needed
fastboot oem unlock
When you flash the new firmware, it flashed your recovery and took root, simply download twrp or whatever you are using and
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
go into recovery and flash supersu.zip to regain root.
Also for future notice, you do NOT have to lock boot loader to flash any firmware, rom, kernel, ruu on this phone if you are soff. I don't care what the guide says. Just remember you have to be soff and super cid for other firmwares. You can even downgrade firmwares, hboots, etc… NEVER flash cdma firmware, hboot, recovery!

fixed!!! forum member russellvone just SAVED my ass. So what he did was he had me download this file for my ATT M8

https://mega.co.nz/#!NUURzC5T!tCjG3n...c6zRAwOPZ8T2PI and told me to rename it 0P6BIMG.zip and place it in my adb fastboot folder

then he told me to run these commands:

fastboot erase cache
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip 0P6BIMG.zip
fastboot reboot

then once everything was done we ran the commands from this thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708571) and voila! i'm once again unlocked! He explained to me that when i tried to run the unlock commands before it didn't work because i had the secure boot.img and what he had me flash was a file he created which made it unsecure so i could run the command. HUGE HUGE props to this guy.
