No!!!

Do not do it,its a bad idea and will not give you any different bands or change the simlock. There is good reason the vzw and sprint MIDs are followed by warnings

Sprint version can(or it could,haven't been following that) be sim unlocked,but you honestly are much better off to get rid of it and get a GSM version.

I tried changing my HTC One M8_WHL PVT SHIP S-OFF into developer edition using the guide on http://htc-one.wonderhowto.com/how-t...dates-0156524/ . I successfully changed the MID and the CID without breaking a sweat. After, I used TWRP to restore the backup which the guide instructed me to download and restore. After restoring that backup, device could only boot HBOOT. Now I tried running the RUU.exe for Developer Edition and I get the error which asks that I run the correct RUU for the device. Now, the device doesn't boot pass HBOOT

What I can do ...
1. Boot into TWRP recovery
2. Give fastboot commands with HBOOT
3. Boot into RUU via fastboot

What I can't do ...
1. Boot the device
2. Revert the MID change to its original state cos I will need to run ADB Shell to do that, which cannot be done from HBOOT
3. No RUU.exe is responding to flashing the device

The specific help I need ...
1. Be able to Change MID using Fastboot so I can run a SPRINT RUU

fastboot getvar all results ...
