Howdy, new HTC One M8 owner here. Coming from Galaxy S4.

There is a lot information here pretty overwhelming. I'm trying to get my bearings. I have unlocked my BL and have not yet installed a custom recovery or root yet. I also have not taken any updates.

Is there a general consensus on which recovery is most compatible with our device?

What is S-Off? I mean I have the jist secure off, but what does this allow, and how do I achieve S-Off?

How do I verify I'm SIM unlocked and if not procedure to achieve this?

Finally with all of the development is there a thread that runs through the ROMs so I can choose one that best fits my need?

I factory reset still my data turns off and on when hot spot is activated. I have done nothing but installed TWRP and S Off. This is ridiculous.

Any other ideas?
