HTC ONE M8 - bricked, crashed, or locked with a dead android icon from a bad recovery

Note if you are having problems with hacking your HTC ONE M8 and you lock it up in recovery flashing  you get the dead android icon on screen with the red exclamation point.

Press and hold Volume UP and POWER until it reboots.   It seems this information is hard to find on the internet and there is a lot of bad information out there about how you actually do this.
