I can confirm that the UNLOCK works on a Verizon HTC One M8 device. I just did this to mine after having used "fastboot oem lock", which changes the state to "RELOCKED", not "LOCKED", and I wanted things back the way the were before having run the fastboot command.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
