being unlocked does not give you root priveledges. you also cannot download the superuser app from the market,as this only installs the app,not the matching binary that the app needs to distribute root priveledges.

the basic steps to root are:
1)unlock bootloader
2)temporatily or permantly install a recovery
3)flash superuser root package in recovery

youve only done #1,not 2 or 3. use this guide to help you do steps 2 and 3: The HTC One root thread
