I have a Bell Canada HTC One M8 and just need root, no need for bootloader unlock, custom recovery or S-Off just root for some apps I have. Owned htc phones before and know the process of htcdev but want to avoid it to keep my warranty active.

Tried weaksause but it just FC's any other tricks?

I don't think it's possible to get root without unlocking the boot loader as you need to install/boot a custom recovery.

Which is for Verizon models and you already said it's not compatible.

Your only option is firewater temproot.
If it doesn't work, then you have to use htcdev.

any method you choose unlocking the bootloader will wipe your device.If you manage to get s-off you can always revert to 100% stock rom with warranty.
