Default [Q] M8 3.16 HBOOT S-Off

I just bought a HTC One M8 from T-Mobile, that incidentally came with an older HBoot.

I was promoted with an OTA updated & an ignoramus like me was accepted the 3.16 OTA & now I cannot achieve S-OFF!

Whats the verdict? Do I need to wait until a new exploit comes out for 3.16? Is there an exploit already available (thats not firewater) but I just haven't searched deep enough?

I've unlocked my bootloader so no use in trying to return the phone now, any replies/information is much appreciated!

I have the 3.16 hboot, and I had no problem getting s-off using this method:

I did not accept the ota update though.

theroot.ninja $25 but worth it, works with anyone who updated OTA
