I've just taken the 4.4.4 OTA update and it went on fine. I've just tried to boot a recovery image with fastboot and it simply rebooted the phone.

Code:
fastboot boot philz_touch_6.26.6-m8.img
responds with
Code:
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  1.277s]
booting...
OKAY [  0.016s]
finished. total time: 1.294s
and then just boot as normal after a delay of 5 or 6 seconds. Do I need a special recovery for the GPE?

Have you tried the newest version of Philz Touch? philz_touch_6.43.6-m8.img See if maybe it works better. If it still doesn't boot maybe discuss the issue in the official thread [m8][CWM Advanced Edition] PhilZ Touch see if Phil can help you with a solution.

Can you flash the image? If so, it could be that boot is disabled on the GPe (which would be weird but not unheard of with HTC phones)

Solved
Appears I was using a recovery image that was too old. Once philz_touch_6.26.6-m8.img was replaced with the latest philz_touch_6.43.6-m8.img it all worked fine.

Thanks.
