This forum section is specific to the AT&T version, and Verizon has some very distinct differences (CDMA device is actually different hardware, no official bootloader unlock, etc.). Advice you get from AT&T users may not be correct for you. So I suggest that you post in the Verizon specific M8 section for the best help.
One thing I can say, I've never heard about updating via HTC Sync. I've only heard or updating by OTA or RUU.
With OTA update, you typically just need a stock ROM (no modification to /system by root) and stock recovery. Root is okay, bootloader unlock is ok.
With RUU, it doesn't matter what ROM or recovery (they will both be over-written by the RUU). And with s-off, bootloader unlock is ok.
But again, I'm a user of the AT&T version. So this might not be the most accurate info for the VZN variant.
