Can you please guide me through the entire process on how to install the OTA update and not lose root, I don't have much knowledge when it comes to flashing into recovery, etc. I do have an HTC One M8 with S-Off. I would be eternally grateful if you could help me out.

Dude, do the research yourself. I don't know how many more times this has to be said. There's nothing special you have to do, just apply the OTA update when prompted
Google Nexus 5 D821 (Black) 32GB
ROM: Android 4.4.4 (KTU84P) | Bootloader: HHZ11K | Recovery: Stock | Radio: 2.0.50.1.16 | Kernel: Stock

OnePlus One A0001 (Sandstone Grey) 64GB *** AWAITING DELIVERY ***
ROM: CyanogenMod 11S (XNPH33R) | Bootloader: Stock | Recovery: Stock | Radio: Stock | Kernel: Stock

If you have a question, great - but DO NOT PM ME WITH IT!!! | [GUIDE] Return your EU M8 to 100% Stock (S-OFF Required) | [GUIDE] Return your OPO to 100% Stock
