I didn't install it cause I didn't want it to mess up my root or soff potential. Here is my current software setup in the picture. Let me know if I can update and still root/soff or if I should do it and not update
Your Build # is 1.12, so I know you haven't downloaded the update yet. I would recommend turning on the "Update over Wi-Fi only" option in Software Updates, and turn Wi-Fi off until you're COMPLETELY done. This way, your phone can't force a download like mine was trying to. lol
Take it from someone who just had to get their phone REPLACED b/c of not knowing about the "don't d/l updates until AFTER rooting and doing s-off" golden rule....... you DO NOT want to d/l that update until after you've done both rooting and s-off. Trust me. lol
If you're looking a great unrushed instructional on unlocking, rooting, and doing s-off, and also how to d/l updates on a rooted phone (which is good to know b/c it requires extra steps), I highly recommend these videos, which are all customized FOR the M8 (I used them myself):

Follow those videos IN ORDER, and you should be JUST fine!
P.S. Make sure you are NOT using the USB 3.0 port on your computer. I had problems getting S-OFF with my first phone, and I'm sure the 3.0 thing was at least partly to blame. After I switched to 2.0, it finally worked.
