I am so confused seriously! Can someone sort it out please??

I don't see what your question has to do (at least directly) to this thread?

I think you mean the "product" (as its called in the getvar output) is m8_whl ? There is no product m8_mhl: http://droider.eu/2014/09/20/htc-one-m8-models/

Not positive, but my feeling is that it is the Sprint variant. Reason I say that, is that its more likely the product (m8_whl) is correct, and the model ID (MID) has been changed by the previous owner.

I don't know of an existing mod to change the product ID. Although I'm sure such a thing is possible with the necessary know-how, I haven't seen any posted mod to do so; and don't see why you would want to do this (which is also probably the primary reason nobody has ever bothered to find or post a method to change product ID).

In contrast, there is an existing mod to change MID, and its pretty common to do so (along with the CID) as it allows the flashing of other carrier RUUs and firmwares.

Guys I need some help. I cant find any the answer anywhere.

I have a Tmobile M8 and I also have a unlock code provided by the carrier.

I am planning to sell the device, but a seller is willing to pay me extra if I can convert it into unlocked edition. The thing is, I don't know what happens with the unlock code if I convert it into unlocked edition.
  1. Should I Sim Unlock first then flash the RUU? Will this method work?
  2. Or if I flash the RUU and ship the device with the Sim unlock code, will the buyer be able ti use it?

Your post has nothing to do with this thread, or even this forum section. This thread is for a SIM unlock mod (not with a code) and this forum section is specific to the AT&T version.

But to answer your question, NO, SIM unlock will not convert the phone to the unlocked version. All it will do is allow the use of non-T-Mobile SIM cards. The phone will still have the current T-Mobile ROM.

To fully convert, you would need to s-off (sunshine which is $25 US) change the phone's CID and MID, then run the proper RUU for the unlocked version.

If none of this is familiar to you, I would recommend just selling the phone "as-is". S-off alone will cost you more money. So unless the buyer is paying you a premium to do these things (which will also cost you time, its a significant set of modifications), its simply not worth it.
