    I saw his tweet last night, looks like I'm going to need to educate myself in the near future.

    I went down this road last year w/the T-Mobile M8.
    Being one not too tech savvy/new to the game,I was a basket case >>>>>>>>> ASK EarlyMon :D
    (Still am,not as bad,perhaps,we'll see ;) ).
    One of the reasons I opted for the Dev Edition this time around,not as many hoops to jump through,but,S-Off is still needed,as you've no doubt checked on your handset.(Read somewhere that only 3 of 47 partitions are unlocked on the DevEdition).
    I bought SUNSHINE S-Off for the M8,not sure if I need to do so again w/the M9 variant.
    Happy to do so again once the time comes around.
    For now,I'd be happy w/root,AD Blocker & unleashing BOOMSOUND/DOLBY to the next level.

    Got to wait till boxing day for my upgrade, this looks like my next phone though.
    S off is the deciding factor though. :D

    OK,I got as far as attempting to flash a recovery (TWRP) & got this:
    FAILED <remote: cannot flash this partition in s-on state>

    I
    have the dev edition M9,seems I've got the order of operation wrong.
    Just want to verify:
    1) Install recovery
    2) Flash SuperSU
    3) Run SUNSHINE 3.1

    AFAICT,seems the order is right,from the various guides I've checked,wondering why I'm seeing the s-on error.

    From your hboot or fastboot screen on the phone - does the top line say locked or unlocked?

    Now make a nandroid backup of your stock, unrooted system.
    Fixed that part for you.

    Fastboot screen actually has 3 lines:
    ***Software status: official***
    ***UNLOCKED***
    *** S-ON***
