Default [BOUNTY] Official Verizon RUU for HTC One M8 with S-ON

This a bounty thread for Stock Verizon only on the Verizon HTC One M8 with S-ON . I know there are people who are stuck in H boot screen and says TAMPERED, LOCKED and SECURITY WARNING. The only way out of it is by using Stock Verizon RUU.

You can post your pledges here and I will add them to OP.

Please do not send any money to anyone unless it's proved that Stock RUU on S-ON device works and made public here on xda.

Please do not start a cat fight in here as that would result in the thread getting locked.

I will try to update the thread on a daily basis. Do not come in here and ask when it will be done because we do not know the answer to that and you might get flamed.

I do own a Verizon HTC One M8 and to start things off i'm pledging USD 100

How to Claim the Bounty

Make a post in this thread with the following:
Proving it works with appropriate photos and/or screenshots
Providing full step-by-step instructions for which anyone else can follow
Wait for at least one member to follow the same method and confirm it works the same on their fully stock device
Claim your bounty via PM from donator(s)

Payment will be processed between each member and the bounty collector via PM on an individual basis

This isn't something you can really bounty. Someone can't whip up a signed/encrypted ruu for you. It would need to be leaked by someone at HTC. Verizon doesn't want them doing that so they have made it harder than heck to get an official ruu. I feel bad for you but the main reason we aren't seeing them is someone would be risking their job to leak it..

Right. So maybe a bounty would give them incentive to risk it.

Highly doubt that. They have ways of tracking that.

Has anyone tried emailing htc to ask for one? I know it sounds pretty obvious, but what would they respond back with? One isn't available?

I guess you are right, Admins please delete this thread. I don't want someone loosing their job for this leak.

I'll have togo down the java card route as that can S-OFF and unlock bootloader from hboot. Which will then allow me to flash RUU for S-OFF.
