Is there a way to unlock the bootloader on the HTC ONE M8 from Sprint to gain root access without having to use HTCDev?

Basically, I just want to gain root so I can use WiFi Tethering while keeping stock ROM.

I found the thread that appears to talk about it without using HTCDev, but it requires S-Off: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708571

I thought s-off on this phone was only accomplished once the bootloader was unlocked, which requires HTCDev?

Temproot only works for Verizon I believe, you will have to devunlock to root unfortunately.
