I apologize if I am on the incorrect area to post this.
I have a fully permanently rooted Verizon HTC ONE M8 and I have twrp recovery installed.
Now I am being prompted to do an update which appeared today. My questions are as follows:

1. Will I lose root?

2. If I do an update is it possible the procedures to re-root like I did may not work?

3. Will I lose the firewater s-off? Will it work again?

4. and lastly how do I prevent this phone for prompting for OTA updates.

Thank you all for all the answers, and in advance if I am posting in the incorrect area.

There are now a number of threads about this now, but here's the short version:

1. No.
2. Yes; Weaksauce still works, as does Firewater.
3. No; at least so far, once you are S-OFF you continue to be S-OFF. (There's one thread that indicates jcase was already aware of the pending update, which is dated close to release day for the handset anyway).
4. Go into \cache\fumo and rename otapkg.zip otapkg.zip.bak.

And, I've read elsewhere here that there should be flashable zips for the important stuff within 24 hours. You don't think the devs would let something like this slip, do you?

I lost root but I'm stock recovery.

Rerun weaksauce; run Superuser. Follow the instructions in that thread. Should be good to go.

Tried that, no luck. Weak Sauce says I'm already rooted but when I open SuperSU I get the message that there is no SU binary installed and SuperSU cannot install it.

adb reboot bootloader

From Bootloader screen, run:

fastboot flash recovery twrprecovery.img

^this is assuming your recovery is in the same folder as your adb/fastboot and named twrprecovery.img. If the file is named something else, use that in place of twrprecovery.img.

Once that flashes, select hboot from your phone's Bootloader screen, then pick recovery. You should then be in TWRP. Reboot system.

It might hang at the Vzw splash screen. If so, hold volume up and power at the same time. Should reboot into system with root.
