    Default [Q] Please HELP Me, this isn't just another Sprint HTC One M8 factory reset

    Hi people I hope one of your intelligent folk can help me out. Basically I bought a M8 on eBay at good price. The problem with it is it is STUCK in BOOTLOADER.

    When I got the phone it was rooted, boot loader unlocked, and TWRP recovery. So after spending close to 7 hours trying to get this thing back to 100% STOCK, I think I am running of options. So after doing a LOT OF research I learnt that I need RUU to take back to stock but in order to do that I needed to UNROOT, so I CMD; "OEM lock" which made the phone "Relocked" "Tampered". So I thought I was done but now I am still having the same issue as I had before which is in RUU I keeping getting "131 Customer ID Error". Apparently that errors means I am using the wrong region RUU, but how is that possible when I am using the Sprint RUU found on XDA?!? So basically, I believe my solution is that to get my S-off, so I can run that RUU, but how can I get my S-off if the only thing I can access is the Bootloader?

    Someone please help me! I am willing to paypal money if needed. Thank you.

    Hmmm sticky situation there for sure.. Yes your correct you need S OFF to use the RUU.

    I achieved S OFF and such from Terminal Emulator app directly on the phone but it can be done via computer too..
