Default How to do the following

Hi guys,


I have recently bought the HTC m8 and I have some question you might be able to answer..

- I want to receive OTA updates, but meanwhile I want root access to be able to use titaniumbackup/adblocker/etcetc..

- Is there any chance to do this?

Yes, so long as you keep stock recovery, stock ROM, stock firmware, stock CID, stock MID, you will be able to.

So I will need to do the following then:

- unlock bootloader
-boot into recovery then nandroid backup with recovery.img
- custom recovery+root
-s-off maybe?
And then flashing the stock recovery back and I will have root and ota...right?

That was easy thank you :

- Unlocked
- Then booted into Phil'S Touch recovery
- Nandroid backup (with recovery)
- Install SU binary
- S-OFF with firewater and thats it.

I kept everything stock, so in theory I will be able to get ota's but of course after every update Root has to be "installed" again. and booting into custom recovery will be also needed.

Thanks!
