Default HTC One M8 GSM

I recently upgraded to HTC One M8..first thing I did was check for installs I Installed Software update and I'm currently running as we speak following

HTC Sense 6 Android 4.4.2 ROM Version 1.55.666.4 baseband 1.16.2133 software version 1.55.666.4 I cannot get it to S Off. I used Tool Kit 2.0 and Unlocked my Boot loader Dev and Rooted using Permnament Root via tool kit I never used method weak sauce when will I be able to get S Off because I want to remove the Tamper banner and be able to update to 4.4.3 Stock when it comes out.

Ok good follow Mr.Hofs procedures to backup and submitted to his link ....

Remember in his link do not install twrp or Philz recovery just boot up with it and do your backups and advise Mr Hofs what you have...with the info just remember to remove your serial #

OK first thing I was asking you to see if you did a Nandroid Back of your Bell Stock Rom that you might need one day....but that won't work now cause your not stock completely........

Secondly if using firewater and gives you WHELP....... IT'S not going to S-Off.....so your SOL.....so now if you wanted to sell your phone and try another to get S-OFF...this is where your Nandroid Backup would of come in handy....<<<<
