Should I unlock using HTCDev or will we see an alternative in the future? I would like to reclaim my warranty by restoring to stock if I need it rather than being screwed even if I restore to stock this is why I'm asking.

I'm personally going to wait for a few months. Something is bound to come out like it did for the HTC One M7 (rumrunner) that will allow root and S-OFF without HTCDev.

Also the thread referenced here is an answer for now. While temproot may not be available for AT&T M8s, I find it hard to believe that someone won't work on a way around unlock, root, S-Off without HTCDev.

I'm wondering....has anyone needed a phone exchange after rooting? When ever I've had a faulty device I just contact AT&T, tell my issues...they trouble shoot then send me a new phone with pre paid box to ship out my broken one. How will it be any different his go round?
