I Relocked my HTC ONE M8 watching this video titled "How to Unroot the HTC One M8 Complete Guide". At the time didn't know "M8 All In One Kit" was block by Verizon but everything seem to go so smooth just like video. When I went back to bootloader to see if "S-OFF" change back to "S-ON" and it did but RADIO and OpenDSP showed "INVALID_VER_INFO", while OS is blank.

I would show a picture of my bootloader but at the time can't because being new user can't post links.
My version is 1.55.605.2
My Recovery: Stock

Im guessing you may need to RUU... but somewhere I read you need to be SOFF for that...

..Being S-On.. you are stuck in the sense that we do not have a signed RUU for you to flash.
Your best bet is to try to re S-OFF your device, if you are able to do this, you can simply run the RUU, fix your device, and then go back to S-ON.. if you want, and then keep, sell it, what ever.
If you can't get it to S-OFF...
you may be stuck :(

After doing the Adb method for couple times to get S-off, I had no success. I did get to paste the last command " /data/local/tmp/firewater" few times but it never progress to "Agree to Terms and Conditions you are prompted with" part.

Do you have any tips you can tell me to use adb method/weaksauce method.

Honestly, you have to post way more specifics for us to be able to chime in....
Best would be to take screen shots of your cmd window so we can see the commands you put in and the return.
In lieu of that, post your specific commands, which option in the firewater instructions you followed etc.
The more specific , the better....

I went to S-ON and had the same issue.

What I did was keep the device with S-ON and flashed the firmware.zip from the OTA. Since its signed you can flash it while being S-ON.

This didn't fix it so I decided to send it back to VZW with the invalid version in hboot.

The last thing I wanted to do though was to get the developer options out of settings. So I turned off developer options and then cleared the data on Settings.

So now that developer options was hidden again I just let the device charge to 100%.

I figured I'd check the versions in hboot one last time and to my surprise it was correct.

I'm not sure what fixed it but I went from S-OFF to S-ON with invalid versions displaying to S-ON with valid versions displaying.

You could try the Sunshine method to S-Off your device or you could read through my previous post in this thread.

I had this same issue and somehow was able to get the version info to display correctly.

I'm going to try the Sunshine method after I get the $25 payment to pay for the license. I can't flash anymore because i'm on stock recovery, I wanted to know what you meant by
then cleared the data on Settings.
. Do you mean factory reset?

No, I went into App Manager, opened up the settings application and clicked on clear data. I then let the phone charge to 100%.

I also flashed the firmware.zip RUU from the OTA. You can do this while you're locked and S-On because its signed by HTC.

I have no idea what fixed it but I would try flashing the firmware.zip and then boot up into Android and let it sit for a while.

If that doesn't work then you could try clearing data on Settings and let it sit for a while again. I don't think that will do anything though, that's just what I did.
