The HTC One M8s is a refresh of the HTC One M8 (htc-m8) except with a different SoC and set of cameras. It currently boots a close-to-mainline kernel in postmarketOS with a limited feature set (See Port status).

Port status

Mainline boots with lk2nd. Only USB networking, internal storage, vibration, and volume down work, but more stuff should be possible to get working with more time invested. WiFi works, but has severe packet loss.

How to enter flash mode

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

Installation

Follow Qualcomm_Snapdragon_410/412_(MSM8916)#Installation. Note that there are no prebuilt images for m8qlul (yet?), so you need to do it via pmbootstrap. What's more, you can't use the regular build of lk2nd for msm8916 — you have to build it yourself (for now). Instructions on how to get it working on m8qlul can be found in the dts: https://github.com/msm8916-mainline/lk2nd/blob/master/dts/msm8916/msm8939-htc-m8qlul.dts.

When flashing lk2nd I would recommend that you use HTC's fastboot. It can be downloaded from HTC by going through the bootloader unlock procedure or from here: http://src.voidzero.net/htc_fastboot/. When using lk2nd's fastboot I would recommend you just use the fastboot provided by your package manager or pmbootstrap.
