I have just updated to the new Firm: 1.57.531.7 and know I can not re-root the phone, I am able to.

C:\Desktop\HTC Root Files\platform-tools>fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-
target reported max download size of 1830711296 bytes
sending 'recovery' (11976 KB)...
OKAY [ 1.306s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 0.699s]
finished. total time: 2.006s

But when I do the recovery on the phone it does not got to TWRP, it looks like is trying to find the twrp image but it just reboot
to normal mode. Have any of you have experience this?

Try and reflashing the recovery image. I had to do it twice for it to work right.

The one click tool available works as well. Just did it today without any issue.

Brand new TMO M8.
Was able to unlock bootloader (HTC Dev method).
Loaded Philz Recovery via ADB.
Rooted via adb flash SU method.
Cannot S-OFF with Firewater (firmware 1.57), getting "whelp, this sucks."
Posted a pledge on the firewater bounty page.

Now I read that one actually does not need S-OFF for loading custom ROMs, which is good...
