Belay my Last!
Fortunately I found a post from the M8 thread and was more or less, a timing issue on my part. Thanks to Tikerz for his post/reply

Quote below:

"When you plug it into the computer does the computer make a ding sound that it's connected? If so, then press power and volume up until the disconnect ding sound which indicates it's rebooting and then immediately press volume down and see if you can get into fastboot. The timing is tricky so I've found using audio cues from computer can help if the phone is messed up."

I had to do this also. It will work. I thought for sure I had bricked my M8. But if u hold power and volume up at same time time screen goes black..then let go of power and volume up and hold volume down till u see fastboot. From there u can fastboot flash RUU package. I say that cause I personally found that restoring a backup of re-flashing ROM didnt work..at least for me.

A brick refers to a phone that is essentially a .. brick. Won't power on, no charge light, 100% dead.
