How to enter flash mode

Hold the Power and Vol- button while the device is off, or hold the Vol- and then hold the Power button while the phone is on so it will force-reboot to the hboot mode, then select fastboot.

Installation

The Device Tree image is not generated by pmbootstarp properly. Copying one from a TWRP boot image into the initramfs then recompiling works. Use this tool (or download the whole dt.img from me) to unpack the TWRP image, then copy the boot.img-htc-m8-dt file to the ~/.local/var/pmbootstrap/chroot_rootfs_htc-m8/boot, rename it to dt.img and pmbootstrap install. After that, just use pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel and pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs.
NOTE: The device might freeze after flashing. If it doesn't boot after 5 minutes, force-reboot it (hold the power button until the device restarts).
