How to Enter Bootloader Mode to get to Stock Recovery
1.  After powering down, press Volume Down and while pressing Volume Down, press Power holding both buttons to start the device into Bootloader mode. If you have difficulty, power up normally, go to Settings->Battery and deselect Fast boot. Power down and try again.
2.  Use the Volume buttons to select up or down. Highlight Recovery and press the Power button.
3.  Once in recovery you will see what looks like a battery now press volume up and power at the same time to enter Stock Recovery menu.

  1. Just wanted to update this post a little bit. If you are currently on 4.4.3 or latest version for M8 weak sauce method will no longer work. The only garunteed method to root and unlock the Bootloader is Sunshine by JCase. Also there is a way to enter stock recovery by booting into recovery mode then holding volume up and pressing power button. Hope these are helpful.

  2. That comment is wrong. Sunshine by JCase is the only way to achieve S-Off. You can still root and unlock the bootloader without Sunshine. Bootloader unlock can be performed at HtcDev.com and root can be achieved by flashing the SuperSU zip. However, if you are NOT S-Off, you will not be able to flash stock based ROMs that contain an updated kernel or radio.

  3. I am trying to find best way to keep root through an update. For Galaxy s4. You answered this in a step by step video. The only problem is my computer is old and slow I can barely use it for basic tasks and makes that way a huge pain it not unpredictable to say the least. I want to know if I remove root will it go undetected during update so I can add it again.
    Thanks in advance!

    I hope I didn’t leave any important info out. This may seem like a dumb question because if it were as simple as deleting root to prevent an update that will guard against a reroot everyone would do it.

  4. I am using a Verizon HTC One (M8). I have installed WeakSuace2 and it gives me root access. I have installed SuperSU but when I run it says that “The SU binary needs to be updated. Continue?” After pressing Continue it tries to install and then says installation failed. Any ideas? Thanks.

  5. Hi Root junky i am a big fan of you and i am passionate to be a developer and i started it with few devices like samsung and asus now i am using verizon htc one m8 with lollipop unlocked international version and presently i am using it in india i unable to unlock bootloader with htc dev and unable to root it and gain s-off with firewater as it is discontinued even i tried it weaksauce 2 as it is not responding on the device and tried to downgrade it with both ruu and fuu as it is possible with s-off i am expecting a solution from you to get practice as developer to enjoy custom rom on it

  6. Hi, I just got a HTC One M8 phone. I did the Android upgrade to Lollipop without thinking much. Now when I try to use FoxFi for mobile hot spot, I have gotten the message of ‘the new phone update does not allow it without paying for the hot spot subscription’ message. I was wondering if I can restore back to the KitKat (think that is what I had before without upgrading to Lollipop). If so, any info/video would be able to guide me through the process? Thanks much in advance.
