So I have my M8 and am getting tired of stock already. So I think I'm getting close to rooting this puppy. I do have one question before I continue however.

Can someone please explain why we should choose "All Other Supported Models" on HTC's Unlock Bootloader page and not our actual phone? I see it's listed and just don't understand why we wouldn't choose the correct option.

Also, I've been using Cyanogenmod on my other rooted devices. Anyone have feedback on that with this phone? Is there a ROM that might work better or is more highly recommended with this device?

Ok so let me get this straight...
I have a M8 Tmo and the HBOOT is 3.18.0.000 the HBOOT required to make use of this thread is 3.16.0.0000 and from googling it seems the only way to achieve s-off is to purchase Sunshine http://theroot.ninja/ $25
Is there no other way? I just asking for my sake and anyone else that might be concern as there's no indication in OP about it.

I just got this phone from Tmo as well and although I haven't rooted it yet, yes, this is what I have found in preparation. Sunshine is the only way for us.

Unable to Unlock Bootloader
I've been trying to unlock the bootloader on my new HTC M8 from T-mobile. Manufacture date is 9/10/2014. I'm using the HTCdev unlock site. I've attempted numerous times on several machines. When I boot into fast boot after doing the unlock procedure I still see LOCKED at the top of the screen and I can't flash a recovery. When I attempt to flash a recovery I get the following message:

target reported max download size of 1830608896 bytes
sending 'recovery' (16576 KB)...
OKAY [ 1.479s]
writing 'recovery'...
(bootloader) signature checking...
FAILED (remote: signature verify fail)
finished. total time: 2.093s

Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
