Greetings All,

So I have been out of the HTC world for a long time now and I am just looking for some information. My M8 is currently running software number "3.32.111.3" and I have a update ready to download and install, the question? Should I apply it and once my holiday is over I can root it and install custom ROMS or should I not apply it and wait for when I get home in +-4 days? My reason for asking is because Samsung would release updates to the bootloader that would make it easier to track root use, does HTC do this? I see there is a thread to revert the status so I am guessing that OTA update does not kill that.

Have a good Xmas to all who celebrate it :).

The only reason not to update would be to s-off, but with your current version you can only s-off with sunshine so it doesn't matter if you update or not. It's always better to s-off first in case HTC puts something in the update to disable Sunshine.

Thank you! That is the answer I was looking for :). I won't update and instead do the whole root, s-off and custom ROM method instead :).
Hello there.
Did you already try to S-OFF the phone?
I am on 3.32.111.3 as well and thinking about it. Yet, I did not have time to unlock and try Sunshine and I do not want to do it atm as it will wipe my data. Lacking time to set everything up again right now.
