    Default M8 Root- S-Off available now

    With S-Off available for the M8, has anyone rooted?
    Interested in bypassing limitations of KK4.4 (specifically the problems with microSD cards) Does rooting alone allow this?
    When you root, without flashing a new ROM, do you still get the same Sense6 overlay?
    If there are positive features of KK4.4 (such as GPS and Wifi fix) do you lose those?
    Are any features of the stock experience removed?
    Where is the best place to go for a beginner to understand the processes (temp rooter=Weaksauce, root, flashing ROMs, etc)
    Thanks.

    All root is is granting root access to your phone. It will not change anything, unless you yourself mess with something. S-off means that you can install a recovery and a new kernel, as well as flash Roms.

    Xda was the first place I went when I first began rooting. It will have all the answers. HTC One (M8) - xda-developers
