I just received a warranty replacement of my Verizon HTC One M8. My older unit had never taken the 1.55 OTA, I had simply flashed the radio and portions of the ROM via TWRP. The replacement unit had 1.55 on it before I could do anything. While I was able to use weaksauce to root, root was extremely unreliable, sometimes taking multiple reboots, and, as the OP points out, I could never get the binaries to download. Then I ran firewater (several tries) and got the same results, "whelp.....you're outta luck."

Yeah, that's $25 I could have spent elsewhere, but it's not unreasonable for Sunrise. Fact is that it gets S-OFF without wiping a thing, and for that alone and the time saved it's worth it.
