I'm debating on unlocking my m8's bootloader, but not root right away. I know it will completely erase and reset my phone, but I just want to make sure that unlocking it alone won't stop ota updates from being pushed/received. Any and all input is appreciated.

As far as I know, it shouldn't be a problem receiving OTA updates, as they're only blocked by custom recoveries.

Although I'm not sure why you would want to unlock the bootloader and not do anything else

ATT stock to this rom


OK, so i want to go from my att stock rom which runs 4.4.2 ( ATT doesnt have 4.4.4 or 4.4.3) to this custom rom.
I already have an unlocked boothloader and sim-off.
my hboot version i believe is 3.17.
and twrm.

I noticed it says i need to install a 4.4.4 or 5.0 firmware to get this rom working espally for wifi.
When i install it right now,everything works but the wifi. Can someone please walk me through the steps.
