If you have previously achieved root by using WeakSauce app by jcase, then the unroot procedure could be easier. The root method is also less dangerous since it has nothing to do with the bootloader or custom recovery like another M8 models.
The unrooting process is fairly easy, because in fact the WeakSauce only a temporary root exploit, it re-root your device on each boot, so simply uninstalling the app will take away superuser access on your device, but there are additional steps that will be described below.
