Default [Q] Help unlocking bootloader

Hey guys, I finally got my phone!

I want to install a custom ROM but first I need to unlock the bootloader and I'm having a nightmare doing it. Is there an specific thread where I can ask for help with, since I didn't find any I created this one but feel free to delete it.

On the FAQ thread I found this:

"First you need to unlock your bootloader. To do that, go to http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader. On the supported devices list, choose "HTC One (M8)"

If I go there, i am able to get up to step #5, but when I enter the command "fastboot oem get_identifier_token" I get that "fastboot" is not a recognized command.



I've searched on Google, but all thread (or most of them) only point to old devices or another brands. I also tried to use a root toolkit, but everything takes to that #5 step.

What am I missing here?

It's not about recognition or the number of 'thanks' you receive. It's about the contribution you give to the community...

If you now have adb in your system path you can run the commands in any location - makes life a LOT easier moving forward (and it applies to ALL Android devices)
