[Q] Root/Re-Flash ONE M8

Hey guys.

I got an HTC ONE M8 today, I've had a lot of android phones before (majority being samsung) and one being a Nexus 4.

I know how to root on Samsung using Odin on Windows.

But I'm not sure and don't understand how to root my phone, also I don't know how to flash a Google Play edition ROM (or a ROM which looks like Stock).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oli

I have Mac OS X though. Samsungs used to be so easy to root and flash firmware on. Why does every method seem so hard on this?

I have tried to install the ADB and fastboot on my computer and every time I go to type in "fastboot oem get_identifier_tag" it just says that the fastboot command can't be found?

Please can someone help. I cannot find any way to do this on a mac computer.

locate fastboot
Should tell you where fastboot is installed. I guess it's not in your path.

Have you followed the instructions for unlocking boot loader on HTC dev site I suggest using the all in one toolkit as mentioned

If I were you I'd stop right now before you do something you might regret until you have enough know how to carry on. Why do you want to flash another Rom so soon? Sense 6 is pretty good.
To use fastboot or adb run the command from the same folder as the binary .
