Default Simple root??

does anyone know if theres a "simple root" method for the m8??

Is unlocking bootloader, flash recovery, s-off all required just to root? I don't care about any of that stuff.. I just want a simple root
if thats possible

Unfortunately, unlocking the bootloader is required for the ATT variant to obtain root. Easy way to do that is this toolkit:

Unlock the bootloader, then you can flash a custom recovery and a superuser zip
S-Off is not required for rooting.
HTC One M8 running stock(current)
SGS III running Quantum by pwncakes (old)
Moto Atrix 4g running Neutrino(older)
Samy Captivate (paperweight )
