This will not work, and will disable any recovery on the phone until a recovery solution can be found. You have been WARNED.

Yes I tried it. When selecting to reboot to recovery or telling abd to reboot recovery, it goes to the bootloader and get stucks. Phone will boot into the stock rom just fine. And you can unlock the bootloader from HTC's site just fine. Just the recovery as built in the general M8 section does not work at all.
