However, Firewater keeps saying that it won't work because of my hardware. So I'm stuck with this bull**** Sense until Firewater fixes it, and I just have to keep trying? That is ****ed up.
Just couple of questions...

Why on earth did you bother getting an HTC phone if you hate sense so much?

Wouldn't it have been easier to get Nexus 5 or an Oppo instead?

Anyways, try Sunshine like suggested above. It will cost ya but you will get s-off for sure.

Yeah, I didn't read all the posts and eventually found SunShine. I'm comfortably on stock now
And Verizon doesn't offer the Nexus 5. Had a Galaxy Nexus, would have been all over that. And Oppo costs too much unlocked.
I knew I was going to root the phone I got, so I looked purely at processor, camera, RAM, memory, and the look of the HTC One M8 is beautiful. And now, on stock, it's perfect.
