I bought my m8 back when it was released and unfortunately dropped it two weeks later. I sent it back to HTC and they refused to fix it because i rooted it. I tried again and they still won't do it. I haven't used the phone for months any suggestions as to what to do with it? EBAY? Im just pissed at HTC sorry if wrong thread

Anyone think they are better at talking to the htc reps and could do it for me??(longshot i know but I'm desperate)

How broken is it? You have a picture? I assume you didn't S-OFF?

I did s-off actually but it is now back to stock and s-on say relocked on the boot loader. The phone is completely functional besides the lcd which looks like its leaking.

You should've reset that RELOCKED flag to just LOCKED while it was S-OFF. If you S-OFF it again you can still do that. I guess at this point HTC already blacklisted it though. Did you use Firewater?

You could always look on eBay for a replacement screen/digitizer and try to replace it yourself. I haven't tried anything like that myself though.

Don't know how hard it is to open the M8 up but you can try finding a bad esn M8 and swap the motherboard out. Just a suggestion....may not be worth the work 😱
