Should I try contacting HTC and see what they would charge to send it in?
I have this happen to both my max and my kids m8. It was a matter of timing the power and up button combo and then shifting to just vol down the second it rebooted. First time took me twenty minutes to get it right. During which I may have broke a sweat. Don't give up just yet.

So, I should hold Power + Vol UP while on the splash screen, then when the buttons flash, switch to just Vol DOWN? Or am I not doing the correct technique?

So this is what I've tried doing; not sure if it's the correct timing or not:

From a dead battery, plug in and hold power + Vol down, it just goes into bootloop

During the bootloop, held Vol Down during the black screen in between the white HTC splashscreen; still bootloop (tried this at various times in between the splashscreen loops; there's about a 5 sec gap of black screen)

Tried the same above, but with Power + Vol Down

Tried Power + Vol Down during the white splashscreen, the back/home soft keys blink 4 - 6 times, and releasing the power button while keeping vol down held, and then reboots into the bootloop again

Not sure what to do at this point, besides contact HTC, unless you guys have any ideas/proper order to press the buttons?

Edit: plugged it into my computer, and about 3/4 of the way through the HTC Splashscreen, I hear the USB plugged in noise, then immediately the eject noise. For a second I can see "Android Phone" listed under Devices and Printers. Tried running fastboot reboot-bootloader and it didn't catch it. Tried running adb devices during the second it's recognized, but it didn't see anything. Tried in both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports.

Also tried pressing Vol down during the time its recognized, but either my timing was off, or it didn't work.

Update: Also tried holding the light sensors under a lightbulb and tried the above attempts (read somewhere this has worked for people)... still a no-go.

i would put it in a wall charger and just leave it for a bit about 20 min and then try the vol - and power.

Still haven't been able to get it after a couple days of trying on and off.

Contacted HTC and I'm going to send it into them.

Since I'm not sure what HBoot is on it currently... if they were to update it to the latest (newest OTA) that's just been released before returning it to me... will I still be able to unlock bootloader/S-Off with Firewater/Weaksauce?

Thanks for the suggestions you guys provided dottat and synisterwolf I appreciate it!

sorry ive been away, work has be busy. If they do update it, there is no way to unlock or s-off ATM. the OTA might be to new for them to care and just flash you back to 4.4.2 sense 5.5

No problem man.

Lame.. hopefully hey don't update it. According to the agreement notice they emailed me with my ticket info and stuff, it says" Please note that all repaired devices will be set to carrier or HTC specifications, and will be factory reset."

Hopefully that means that they'll just reset it back to how it came and not update it.

Otherwise I guess I'll either wait or try and sell it, since the device itself is pretty much mint.

So I got it back today from HTC... and I think they updated it . Can somebody confirm for me?

Bootloader says this:

PVT SHIP S-ON
HBoot-1.57.0000
Radio-1.13.41.0421
OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
OS-4.10.605.3

Settings says:
4.4.2
Sense 6.0
4.10.605.3

So there's no way to root, or S-Off, or bootloader unlock right? Neither Rumrunner nor Firewater work? Is an unlock exploit being researched?
