I think the only way to root an HTC m8 Verizon phone is using the Sunshine tool. Even then, as of two weeks ago (and I didn't check now) they couldn't root a phone that was at 5.0.1 level. Sunshine is $25, but if you want root, worth every penny. They may have figured out how to root 5.0.1 by now.

Have any of you tried to unlock the bootloader through HTCDEV? if it unlocks the bootloader then flash TWRP recovery and flash SuperSU in recovery and Bingo you have root. Another option is to flash a custom rom in recovery. A new sunshine should be released this week which will be compatible with the M9 so it should work with the M8.

Unfortunetly Verizon has HTC keep their phones off the HTCDEV list and as of right now there is still no root exploit for Verizon 5.0.1

I seem to remember a way to edit the CID to enable HTCDEV unlocking, but I don't recall the specifics.

I'm having trouble trying to root my HTC One M8 on Marshmallow. I went thru the whole process as you. I broke root when I went back to stock to get OTA. I am S-off and Unlocked thru Sunshine. Can't find any way back to root my M8. Can you or anyone send me to the right direction? I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks in advance.
