Question is every time i shut my phone off and turn it back on its not rooted but if i go to weak sauce again and accept root then my phone is rooted again is this normal or have i missed something? Thanks

    To the best of my knowledge, Weak Sauce is compatible with the M8. Do you have any info that it is?

    EDIT:

    I have done some research. Seems this method unroots on reboot and you need to run the app again.

    Yup. That's correct. It's designed for use if you need root, then you reboot and it's back to normal.

    S off isn't available on the newest update. I was just talking to a few Devs on the hive about this. Root is available but s off isn't.

    Here is the quote. " Root is but soff is a no go with hboot 1.57 and the new base/firmware.

    Hboot 1.56 and lower can be s-off. Not sure on the fw so do ur homework."

    What would the suggestion be if I just wanted root access just to be able to use a wakelock detector and use something like greenify to improve battery use?

    I'm guessing I would have to flash a ROM if I wanted to get the update Verizon hasn't given us yet, like access to Power Saver and Extreme Mode.
