Many HTC device owners will be aware of HTC’s S-ON, which is HTC’s security that prevents modding of their devices, including kernels and custom recoveries. This also includes the installation of Google Play Edition software, otherwise known as stock Android, even though the ROM for it has been available for a while. The Firewater team, which is a team of developers, have managed to achieve S-OFF on the all new HTC One (M8), opening up the device to a number of modding possibilities.
S-OFF will allow users to install the Google Play edition ROM, essentially allowing for stock Android on the device. Users should be wary of doing this, however, as the procedure will void your warranty and is quite dangerous. If you are comfortable with the procedure, then head to the source link below!
