Since your device is LRA which is basically another variant of Verizon device, no.. this method won't work. Read post #9 on page 1 and post on page 2. This won't work on m8_wlv & m8_whl.
You also cannot install a Verizon & Sprint stock ROM / RUU because LRA is a rare device variant, only can install LRA stock ROM / RUU.
What you can do is unlock bootloader, install TWRP and install custom ROM.. some of them should work fine. I have no idea which custom ROM as I don't try all .. you need to pick one and try. Also don't think custom Nougat & Oreo & Pie can work on your device but no harm trying.
