Default [Q] Want to root only M8

I have a new T-Mobile M8. My previous phones have been Samsung for a long time. I am familiar with rooting them. HTC is new to me. I would like to root my M8, but I don't care to unlock it unless that is required to root. And I want to be able to get back to stock if I need to. All I really want to do with root is to use FolderMount. I looked through the threads in this forum but didn't recognize anything that showed just how to root and get back. I may have missed it for sure. Anyway, if someone could point me in the correct direction, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks!

Frank

Follow the thread "[GUIDE] [T-Mobile] Unlock Bootloader, Install Custom Recovery, Root, S-Off"

Just dont do the S-off part. The stock images are on here or just save your own.
