I have the HTC M8 from sprint. I just finished rooting it and when I went to flash the new nightly (20140527) using TRWP, it showed this:



Did I do something wrong? If there's some way to add "m8_whl" to the list of devices, please let me know.

Usually I would get that message in the case of a bad download.

I tried redownloading it multiple times to no avail. It just refuses to install because ...

This package is for "m8,m8wl,m8wlv,m8vzw,m8whl,m8spr" devices; this is a "m8_whl"

... which makes no sense because I got my m8 from Sprint. Doesn't this mean that the device should be an "m8spr"?

Just open the updater-script in the zip file and add m8_whl to the assert line at the top.

It works!
Will I have to add this line every time there's a new update, or can it be added to the official nightlies?

Edit: I may have spoken too soon. My device was rebooting relentlessly. It would show the "Welcome to CM" screen, then google things would crash, rinse, repeat all in about 10 seconds. Then it went to just showing the boot animation. I managed to turn it off using pwr&vol+, but it somehow encrypted itself. Spooky.

Edit 2 (The return of edit): I forgot to wipe /data. No more crashing now, though my question about the updater-script above still stands.

If its not in there, yes. If its in there, no.

This is the best thing to do OP. Always trust the Cap'n and his code^^ =)

At least, fixed a similar issue I had while using something other than Captain_Throwback's TWRP for the M8....
