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
OnePlus One (Sandstone Black) 64GB
ROM: CyanogenMod 11S (XNPH25R)

HTC One M8 (Gunmetal Grey) 16GB
ROM: 2.22.401.4 (KTU84L) | HBOOT: 3.18.0.0000 S-OFF | Recovery: Stock | Baseband: 1.19.2133147.09G_20.57.4196.01L_F | Kernel: Stock | CID: HTC__001

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
