Default Help rooting new HTC One M8

Okay so I unlocked my bootloader using the toolkit but I dont want to flash a custom recovery, I like the stock one. Is there anyway I can root it using the stock recover?

But rooting u just use the toolkit.. I think you don't need to even go into recovery with the toolkit

Does anyone know if one would still get OTA updates from AT&T if rooted and unlocked?

Yes if you are on the stock rom with no deleted or modified system apps, however the update will most likely break root and could result in the inability to root in the future. Usually within days of an update, someone mods the new update and posts it in the dev forum for those who are unable to update, at least that was my experience on the S3.

yes, just boot into twrp, don't flash it.
fastboot boot twrp.img
you can flash supersu and never touch stock recovery

Thanks everyone for the replies. I was somehow able to just push SuperSu onto my phone, no need go into fastboot or anything. After I unlocked the bootloader I restarted my phone and just clicked on Perm Root, it did its thing, I restarted one more time and boom SuperSu was there and root was verified with root checker.

Yeah sorry about that, I noticed that this thread was in General and than there was another thread for Help and Troublshooting. Not knowing which one to put it under I put it in both. Lol
