Hi Guys, I am in the process to put my M8 back to stock, currently I am s-off, how do I convert it back to s-on? Do I remove the custom recovery first then unroot, then S-on?
What is the proper sequence to do it, thanks

Just leave it soff. It throws a security flag when you turn security back on. There is no way around this at the moment but i'm pretty sure the command is
fastboot oem writesecureflag 3
Double check this before using it, this is off the top of my head.

I agree. Unless you are selling the device, I don't see the reason to s-on.

AT&T doesn't care if the phone is modded, if returning for warranty service.
