Hey I don't know if this is the right place for this question but I don't want to start a new thread about it. I just bought my m8 (first HTC phone, have been rooting and flashing for years) and I was immediately prompted with an update. 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
What do you mean? I have the M8 and used Firewater to do S-OFF, and it worked. If the phone was properly unlocked & rooted, then in MOST cases it will still work. It didn't work for me at first b/c my last M8 I f'd it up by taking the OTA update BEFORE rooting. But then I learned my lesson and my current phone's unlocking/rooting/S-OFF went fine. Just have to avoid taking the OTA before unlock/root/S-OFF (and also AVOID using USB 3.0, only 2.0), and you're good to go.
Not sure. Did you root it yet? I THINK you have to unlock/root it before the S-OFF on Firewater will work. Fortunately for you, you HAVEN'T taken the OTA update yet, so unlocking/rooting is still possible. 1.1x can root, 1.5x can't. If you have 1.5x or higher, there may be a way to bring it back 1.1x..... I've heard there is, but can't confirm. You'd have to research it. HTC is totally cool about unlocking your phone, so that Firewater msg may not be true. You may have to research that too. I didn't have any issues with it though, and my replacement phone I have now is only from a month ago.
See my 2 postings on Page 38 of this thread (RockStar2005) to get to where I'm at now. But did u root it?
