So... I broke my old Verizon M8 that was rooted. Got new one and upgraded it to 6.0.

Now I am trying to root it and get s-off.
From what I remember and my notes I need to temp root it with KingRoot, then use Sunshine to get s-off, after that I can install TWRP, and after that SuperSU binaries for permanent root.


I followed these steps
factory reset,
Installed KingRoot
did RUU using DOTTAT_VZWM8_M_S_ON_6_0_RUU.zip
Enabled USB Debug
Enabled High precision GPS
Enabled Mock location (set it to KingRoot)

Now I am running KingRoot and it keeps restarting at 18-20%.

Anything I am missing?
Did I had to do it with Android 5.0 and I can't root it with 6.0?

Thank You

UPDATE: So I guess Sunshine can now temproot it self. I installed it, it updated to latest one, was able to gain temp root, and now I am S-OFF and boot loader unlocked.

Moral of the story: RTFM.
