Thanks Hadron!
My HBoot is 1.44 and its Android 4.1.2

I'm looking to use this guide (How to Root HTC One) so hopefully be pretty straight forward and will all be of ease to root it.

Thanks scotty85! I've still yet to root my device as work is getting in the way!
There seems to be a nice little AIO kit by hasoon so might give that a try.

Really feel like a knob as I need bit of refreshing.

Right got my HTC bootloader unlocked, rooted and s-off. Is there any point in doing SuperCID atm if i'm not flashing firmware yet?

Cheers!

If there is anyone else here with difficulty rebooting into recovery, I found a few steps that helped me a lot in finally managing to enter recovery mode:

1. Turn off fast boot option in power menu
2. Boot into bootloader via power menu, then power + vol down
3. go into fastboot
4. from a cmd window, fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
5. fastboot erase cache
6. from the menu, boot into recovery
7. phone boots to the OS instead of recovery
8. boot back into the bootloader via power menu, power + vol down
9. TAMPERED shows up, boot into recovery and it works!

Plus, what's the advantage of a newer hboot anyway? So I've downgraded my hboot back to 1.44, and just confirmed that fastboot boot recovery.img works again.

Note for anyone reading this who thinks that means there's a work-around: you have to be S-Off already in order to downgrade hboot.
i recently flashed maximus,wich is based on leaked 4.3 build 3.09.401.1,and its matching firmware. this gave me an opportunity to play around with hboot 1.55. i observed the same thing you did: i could not fastboot boot,nor fastboot flash a new recovery. i had to pack it up and flash it as an ruu.

in addition,i was unable to change my CID. was trying to flash a vzw cid(dont ask ) and couldnt. nor could i flash back to my stock cid from supercid:
Code:
c:\miniadb_m7>fastboot oem writecid VZW__001
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
(bootloader) Input CID is not super CID
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
OKAY [  0.053s]
finished. total time: 0.060s

c:\miniadb_m7>fastboot oem writecid T-MOB010
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
(bootloader) Input CID is not super CID
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
OKAY [  0.052s]
finished. total time: 0.058s
saaaaaay whaaaaaa so now im back on hboot 1.44 as well. the other things were an inconvenience,but i cannot be stuck on supercid! wonder what they are doing with these new restrictions??

Code:
c:\miniadb_m7>fastboot oem writecid VZW__001
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
OKAY [  0.018s]

That's even worse actually! I couldn't fastboot boot with 1.54, but I was able to fastboot flash recovery.

If they keep that up there's going to be little point in offering an unlockable bootloader.

thats exactly what i was thinking. if i hadnt had all these OTA,ruus,and other files, and a pretty good idea what i was doing it would have been a pretty good moment of panic. as it was i was pretty uneasy until i was safely back on 1.44

its going to be a huge PITA to unlock and root then new builds if they all will be that way

All they have to do now is close fastboot oem rebootRUU and we are all screwed.
I'd be very careful flashing anything above hboot 1.55.0000. It still works now but who knows about the next release. And you can't always go by the hboot number the new 1.44.0000 from AT&T also shuts down revone and some fastboot functions

Default Can I root my new Verizon HTC one?

Maybe it's early, but I couldn't wait for the Verizon HTC one. Any idea when there will be a Cyanogen Mod, root guide, etc? There were a couple of posts on XDA a while back, but nothing much to see that I can find.

The first few posts of this thread are a root guide, and when I visited cyanogenmod.org the other day they had various builds available for the One (I assume you have an international model), so I expect you could download and install now.

so you have a verizon one,correct? your post does somewhat lead us to believe youve purchased a different modle rather than wait for vzw.

if you have any other variant,this guide works fine,and if you happen to be on un-s off-able firmware from att or t mobile,dongrades exist.

if youh ave vzw,you had to have gotten it on release day an unlocked it before they shut the door,or you have to be willing to send your phone to colorado to an xda member whose purchased a java card to s-off using a diag file: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2441299

once youve gotten s-off,you can use this guide,you just need to use a vzw compatible recovery. there are directions in the 2nd post of that thread to install recovery without unlocking the bootloader as well.

unfortunately,the cid and radio secure flag are locked down pretty tight. there may eventually be a software expolit to either unlock ot s off,but nothing on the immediate horizon.

i personally send my one x to sonic,and had no issues. if you want root/s off its a perfectly viable option.

they are working on cm 10.2 for the vzw one,but its not stable at this point,to my knowledge,but i do not really follow that development.

just holler if ya have any more questions!

Thanks Scotty! Sorry to be unclear. I do have the Verizon HTC one and want to root it and install Cyanogen. Really disappointing to read the details. This sounds a little over my head. I guess I'll wait for now and see if there's ever a software exploit.

Well, Scotty, (and the rest of you guys) I think I'd like to try to get my Verizon HTC One rooted. Before I start the process, can you help me walk through some of the steps? I've been reading the "HTC One root thread" and I'm a little unsure of a few things:

My goal is to have Cyanogen Mod on the phone like I did with my d-inc.

1. To start, I assume I contact Verizon and have them reactivate my dinc (the dinc has no sim, 3G, so I guess that's my only choice). It's rooted and backed up with Titanium, so I'll restore the One from that.

2. Should I reset the phone to wipe it and remove the sim card before mailing?

3. I mail it, it comes back, do I reactivate it or wait until I've successfully flashed a rom?

4. "once youve gotten s-off,you can use this guide,you just need to use a vzw compatible recovery."

How do I know what's vzw compatible? How do I get it on my phone?

5."-put the superuser zip file onto your phones sd card"-- my phone doesn't have removable storage. Where do I put the zip file?

6. Looking ahead, there is a link now for the vzw One on Cyanogen, but only a couple of nightlies. Maybe I should wait until there's a stable build?

Thanks again for any help.

Mike

yup. call them,or you can reactivate it online.
2. Should I reset the phone to wipe it and remove the sim card before mailing?
yes
3. I mail it, it comes back, do I reactivate it or wait until I've successfully flashed a rom?
id reactivate it as soon as it gets back. no reason to wait.
4. "once youve gotten s-off,you can use this guide,you just need to use a vzw compatible recovery."

How do I know what's vzw compatible? How do I get it on my phone?
same way as you flash recovery for other variants,just follow step 2
5."-put the superuser zip file onto your phones sd card"-- my phone doesn't have removable storage. Where do I put the zip file?
on the "pretend" sd card that pops up when you plug in the phone.
6. Looking ahead, there is a link now for the vzw One on Cyanogen, but only a couple of nightlies. Maybe I should wait until there's a stable build?
no harm in trying it out. you can always restore a stock backup. just look at the list of what works and what doesnt,im sure there is a support thread on xda
Thanks again for any help.

Mike
this link should help you. ive been meaning to reproduce this in the vzw section here,just havent gotten to it yet: the htc one S-OFF via java card support thread - xda-developers

comonly asked questions,and recovery links/directions in post 2

sorry for the quick response,im on my way to work... will be happy to go into more detail later

So I found my way to that XDA thread and step 2. I have no idea the difference between trwp, CW touch, and CW classic. I guess CW classic would be most straightforward? Is there some command in there that allows the stock backup you mention? Just nervous about getting lost in this process. I'll keep reading... Thanks, Mike

They are all just custom recoveries. I'm using TWRP myself. A non-touchscreen recovery (CWM classic) may actually be the least straightforward!

Once you have a custom recovery booted you can back up your ROM before rooting.

Thanks you guys. I'm just going to bite the bullet and jump in. I suspect if there are nightlies for CM now, someone will follow through to a stable mod. I hope not to bug you guys, but I may have a post or two when I get my phone back with s-off.

Hi Guys,
I'm back and presumabley S-off. You're right, quite fast and easy (thanks Sonic!). So now...

1) change cid back to stock verizon

this is actually very easy. simply put the phone in fastboot,change to fastboot directory,and enter in a cmd window:
fastboot oem writecid VZW__001

Ummm... Do I need to set up fastboot as in "set up adb and prepair to root" in the other thread or is fastboot already there? I installed HTC synch to get the drivers as you suggested. I downloaded the miniadb_m7, unzipped, etc. Assuming I follow all these steps correctly and it checks out, how exactly do I "put the phone in fastboot"?

Assuming I get through that, I thought I'd leave the bootloader locked (seems easier?). Download CW touch and flash the zip as per your guide. My eventual goal is to get Cyanogen back once the mod is stable (five nightlies so far) so I guess I need "permanent" recovery. Where's the step that allows me to backup the stock rom?

You're "root with windows" guide ends with flash superuser root files. I notice that my phone has superSU on it since coming back from Denver. Is that the playstore app you mention? I'm a little lost on this one. I found the super SU zip file. How do I "install from sd card"?

Thanks again,

Mike

One confusing thing is that there are two fastboots (plus the "fast boot" option in Sense, but that's something completely different). There's fastboot mode on the phone, which is an option in the bootloader menu (boot while pressing volume down to get this). And there's the fastboot command on your computer, which you use when the phone is in fastboot mode. That will not be there unless you have set it up already - it does not come with HTC Sync - so I expect you do still have to do that (will come with the adb setup).

If your phone has come back with superSU installed it may have been rooted. Use one of the root checker apps from the Play Store to test, or install Titanium Backup (which needs root) and try to run it.

If it is rooted you may even have a custom recovery already installed. Go into recovery mode (bootloader menu then select recovery). If this gives you CWM or TWRP rather than the HTC recovery (which usually looks like a black screen with a warning triangle) you are sorted and don't need to install this.

You make the ROM backup using a custom recovery, either permanently installed or temporarily (if fastboot boot still works, as it doesn't with some hboot versions. If not then it has to be a permanent install).

correct. you need to use fastboot commands in the cmd window to change the cid,and the miniadb_m7 file will do all that for you. as hadron said,you can select fastboot from the hboot menu,or you can use the comand adb reboot bootloader once youve determined adb commands to be working.

the first times you plug in,the pc may start installing drivers. youll prolly have to wait a couple minites to get a response to adb devices or fastboot devices

there is a troubleshooting fastboot/adb connections spoiler in the OP. i can link it down below as well.


Assuming I get through that, I thought I'd leave the bootloader locked (seems easier?). Download CW touch and flash the zip as per your guide. My eventual goal is to get Cyanogen back once the mod is stable (five nightlies so far) so I guess I need "permanent" recovery. Where's the step that allows me to backup the stock rom?
once you have installed a permanent recovery,youll make a nandroid backup of stock using the recovery menu on the phone. if you need to get back to stock,youll restore that backup. if you need the stock recovery back on the phone as well,its flaoting around on xda,but we can cross that bridge if we come to it,its not something you particularly need to worry about right now.

You're "root with windows" guide ends with flash superuser root files. I notice that my phone has superSU on it since coming back from Denver. Is that the playstore app you mention? I'm a little lost on this one. I found the super SU zip file. How do I "install from sd card"?
sonic may have installed a recovery and root for you,in wich case,you dont really need to do anything else. if you needed to install it,you would do so just as you would a rom:
1)plug in to pc,drag the file to internal storage
2)boot to recovery
3)using recovery menu wipe cache and dalvik cache,then flash the superuser file
4)reboot
hope that helps.

for now,id prolly concentrate on getting your drivers working,and being able to connect to your phone with the cmd window in the booted OS (adb devices) and with the phone in fastboot (fastboot devices)

once youve got that part working,you can adb reboot recovery aND see what pops up. my guess is that youll see twrp recovery. if you see a red triangle and ! then youve still got a stock recovery

in the booted OS,you can:
adb reboot to reboot the phone
adb reboot bootloader to boot to fastboot
adb reboot recovery to boot to to recovery

in fastboot you can:
fastboot reboot-bootloader to make the bootloader reboot
fastboot getvar all to list some phone info
fastboot oem writecid VZW__001 to change your cid
fastboot reboot to boot back to the OS

last and not least,some troubleshooting steps:

troubleshooting connectivity issues:
*make sure you have changed to your adb/fastboot directory!
*make sure usb debugging is enabled(checkmarked) to use adb in the OS
-try a reboot of the PC
-try different usb cables and ports
-dont use a usb hub
-dont use usb 3.0
-make sure nothing capable of comunicating with the phone is enabled and running. htc sync,pdanet,easy tether,and even itunes have all been known to cause issues.
-windows 8 has been known to have issues. try a windows 7 or older machine

failing the above,
-i use these drivers for fastboot and adb(donwload and run as admin): http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe (mirror)

failing that,try manually updating the drivers in the following manner:
-put the phone in fastboot mode(select fastboot from the hboot menu)
-open device manager on the PC
-plug in phone,watch for it to pop up in device manager.
-update drivers with device manager,pointing the wizard to the extracted
driver download folder from above

note that you can check the connectivity of the phone,and make sure drivers are working by in the following manner:
-open cmd window. change to directory containing adb/fastboot utilities

-adb with the phone in the booted OS,usb debug enabled,enter:
adb devices in a cmd window

-fastboot with phone in fastboot(not hboot!),enter:
fastboot devices in cmd window

in either case,a properly connected phone with working drivers installed should report back the phones serial number.

And there's the fastboot command on your computer, which you use when the phone is in fastboot mode. That will not be there unless you have set it up already - it does not come with HTC Sync - so I expect you do still have to do that (will come with the adb setup).

If your phone has come back with superSU installed it may have been rooted. Use one of the root checker apps from the Play Store to test, or install Titanium Backup (which needs root) and try to run it.

If it is rooted you may even have a custom recovery already installed. Go into recovery mode (bootloader menu then select recovery). If this gives you CWM or TWRP rather than the HTC recovery (which usually looks like a black screen with a warning triangle) you are sorted and don't need to install this.

You make the ROM backup using a custom recovery, either permanently installed or temporarily (if fastboot boot still works, as it doesn't with some hboot versions. If not then it has to be a permanent install).
Thanks, Hadron. I like the titanium idea. I backed up my rooted d-inc with it and I'll try that. I found the bootloader menu. Is that a tiny touch sensitive interface or do I navigate with the volume buttons and then hit the power button to select? I did the latter- went to recovery and hit the power button to select, but then the phone just seemed to shut down (no triangle). Not sure if I'm doing something wrong here.

Yikes! I think Titanium is working! I installed it and superSU asked for it to have permission, etc (yes, of course). Am I rooted!?! Should I use the playstore clockwork "Rom Manager"? If I'm rooted, I have two goals: 1. delete some bloat. Still, when I go to apps in Sense, there's no option to uninstall. 2. flash CM, but I'll wait for a stable mod

I'll keep playing with it. Looks like a Saturday wrecker... Hard to put down...

Cool!

Only here for a few seconds, so will have to be brief.

Bootloader isn't touchscreen. You did it the only way you can.

Black screen for recovery sounds wrong. Best might be to find one for your version (cdma handset may need a different one from gsm, so try the Verizon ATR forum for links. Check compatibility of stuff before flashing). When you have a good image you can fastboot flash that, which will let you take nandroid backups & flash ROMs. Am very surprised no working recovery though.

Personally I'm not a fan of ROM Manager. It does nothing that you can't do with a custom recovery, so is "one more things that can go wrong" in my mind. Hence I've never used it, so can't really advise.

Anyway, good news. You're well on the way

Safest way of experimenting with bloat is using Titanium to freeze it. As you are S-Off it can also uninstall, but freeze is easier to reverse if there's a problem.

Update: root checker app confirms root! Going a little slower, I see that the bootloader screen is not touch. It says "unlocked" at the top, so obviously I guess the bootloader is unlocked. I tried again, went to "recovery" and hit the power button and it just rebooted the phone so I guess I don't have CW or twrp on it. I seem to be several steps ahead on Scotty's guide, though. I'll try to get the recovery installed now...

in the booted OS,you can:
adb reboot to reboot the phone
adb reboot bootloader to boot to fastboot
adb reboot recovery to boot to to recovery

in fastboot you can:
fastboot reboot-bootloader to make the bootloader reboot
fastboot getvar all to list some phone info
fastboot oem writecid VZW__001 to change your cid
fastboot reboot to boot back to the OS

last and not least,some troubleshooting steps:
Ok, moving along! I think the adb thing is working. All the commands led to the appropriate returns (device number, etc.) FYI the white window said "fastboot usb" instead of "fastboot devices". As in my other post to Hadron, it looks like I'm rooted with superSU. I'll change the cid next. What is that for? The phone seems to work fine. Hadron's comment that "the recovery command being just black doesn't sound right" concerns me some. After that, I'll try to get the CW touch flashed.

I think I actually did it! All the fastboot stuff seemed to check out. I found the CW touch recovery and permanently flashed it. At the moment, I'm backing up the stock rom (wow that takes a long time!). The other post says:

there is not much to explain with this one. if booted to recovery from above,use the recovery menu on your phone to:
*make a backup of your stock,unrooted rom. this is NOT an option! please... do it.
-wipe cache
-wipe dalvik cache
-install zip from sd card(chose your superuser file)
-reboot

*congratulations,youre rooted


But I assume I can skip this since I already have the superSU working? Also, what are the basic steps for flashing a new ROM?

that is correct. when in fastboot mode of the bootloader,plugging in to the PC will display on the white bootloader screen fastboot usb

typing fastboot devices in the cmd window should spit back the serial number,just like adb devices will in the booted OS

correct,since you have working superSU,no need to flash him again.

flashing roms uses that same sequence,except youll pick the rom's zip file instead of superSU,and adding the make a backup step:

-make backup
-wipe cache
-wipe dalvik cache
-install zip from sd card(chose your rom file)
-reboot

I'm having a bit of trouble with the "fastboot boot recovery.img" command. I have openrecovery-twrp-2.5.0.0-m7.img from here (techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7) , renamed to recovery.img and copied to d:\android. Here's what my command prompt window looks like (pastebin.com/kHDC4baY)

It just freezes on the fastboot screen and I have to hold power to restart it.

What hboot do you have?

If you look back through this thread you'll find some discussion of this command not working with newer hboot versions. Hopefully the permanent install ("fastboot flash recovery") will still work, but Scotty had a very bad experience with 1.55.

If you are S-Off you can downgrade your hboot to 1.44, where fastboot boot should still work (I did this yesterday after updating my firmware). But if you are S-On you may have no alternative but to try a permanent install.

1.55 and s-on. I'd rather not permanently install anything yet, though. Thanks for the help.

What is your build number? We can see if we can find your stock recovery so you can simply re-install it after flashing root files. As hadron said,you can no longer fastboot boot your recovery with the newer hboots

ahhh,thats easy. thats the AT&T version. im downloading firmware.zip right now,i can upload the stock recovery,so if you wish to be rooted,you can simply install a recovery,make a stock backup,flash root files,then afterward flash the stock recovery back in place.

if youre after the ability to recieve OTAs,keep in mind there are several criteria that need to be met,not the least of wich is the stock recovery in place,and a pretty unmodified boot and system. this means no custom kernels,no extensive system mods,and most(or all) of the factory bloat still in place

let me know if your interested,and ill get it uploaded for you.

Hi Guys, me again. I've been patiently waiting for CM to get a "stable" mod and it's up to "release candididate" stage, so somebody's working on it. My current issue is a recent OTA from Verizon. I'm diligently avoiding it, but it's really nagging me. I've found a few ideas of how to stop it, (Freeze via Titanium Backup:FWUpgrade.apk and SDM.apk
Utilizing Root Explorer or the like: Rename file: /etc/security/otacerts.zip to otacerts.zip.bak AND Rename file: /system/app/ wssyncmlnps.apk to wssyncmlnps.apk.bak) but not having any luck finding the files or changing the names in ES File. Any ideas? Also, if I get to CM, will the OTA nagging stop? Thanks.

Update: I found a new thread How to prevent OTA on stock rooted VZW HTC One - xda-developers on xda that lists another set of files to rename. I'll try that and repost if it works. I also found that Root Explorer was necessary to see the files, worth the $4.

first,dont let the status of the builds scare you. ive run nightlys on many daily driver phones that i need to rely upon for work. just because they are nigtlys doesnt mean they arent functional,stable,and useable flashing cm will keep you from getting OTA nags

on your OTA issue,you could simply flash a custom rom based on the OTA,wich will defiantely stop the nagging.

if you want to stay where you are,youll need to look for the OTA file in a downloads folder,and eliminate it.

you can then use titanium to freeze a file called "updater" to keep the phone from checking(or use root explorer to rename the file).

with this file frozen,if i select system update,the process just crashes,and FCs. ive had my dads phone set this way since i gave it to him to keep it from OTAing and screwing something up. its still running t mobiles release 4.1

Hi Guys,

So I'm getting ready to install CM now and a couple of things are a little different than described, so I thought I'd check in before pulling the trigger.

I found my way to recovery and made a backup.
I plugged my phone into my computer and only a folder called "internal storage" showed up, so I assume this is /sdcard/. My old dinc would say "use as mass storage" and I'd get two drives, the phone storage and the sd card separately. I don't see a way to do that when I look at the One.

I moved CM.zip to the "internal storage" folder on the phone.

choices now are:

install zip
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
...
advanced

CM instructions say just do the factory reset, should I also do the cache partition? Is that the dalvik cache Scotty mentioned?

They also have this Gapp.zip link for the Google playstore, maps, etc. I assume I just go back to recovery to the install zip and then choose that instead?

Will I lose all my data and if so, should I just copy over the "internal storage" stuff I copied to my computer?

Also, if anyone is following up on my prior post, the OTA nagging stopped when I followed the XDA link instructions on the prior post.

Thanks for any help (and for all the help so far!).

Mike

yup,internal storage is where you want to place the rom. it is effectively the sd card different from the dinc as you only have the phone storage.

doing a "factory reset" generally will wipe the cache parition also(youll see it "wiping cache" when you do a factory reset),and the dalvik cache lives inside the data partition,so you are fine to just do a factory reset. the "old school" train of thot is to make sure you wipe cache and dalvik in addition to data,but the reality is that is not really neccesary.

sometimes you may need to wipe cache and dalvik to install something without wiping data,but for a new rom that is very different from your current one,you will want to wipe data.

if youre using clockwork recovery,dalik cache is under "advanced" in the menu.

certainly no harm in wiping the cache and dalvik also,but ignore any advice you get that you need to flash special "super wipe" zips or manually wipe something multiple times. electonically wiping is not like wiping crumbs off of a counter that you may need to make a couple passes.

you are correct,just put gapps on your "sd card" as we,then flash the rom,and gapps immediately after.

just holler if you have further questions

Ok, i'm in a little trouble here. When I went to "install zip" the CM file wasn't there. The phone is now wiped. How can I get the zip file to the /sdcard/ folder when I can't see it in windows? I also can't boot into recovery. Did I lose root?

When I couldn't see the CM.zip file, I rebooted and now I have the original stock and can't get to recovery with power+vol down. Can I go back into the adb thing and get root back? Help!

Ok, better now. An hour and a couple of stiff ones later, I think I'm back. For any other intrepid newbies out there:

I went to install zip and the CM file was not there. I rebooted-BIG MISTAKE. Went to stock, wouldn't boot to CWM. A little panicky at this point. Couldn't get anything to work, so I did another factory reset through Sense and I'm back in recovery. The first choice in "install zip" is \0\ so I chose that and THAT is the sdcard drive. I found the cm.zip file there and flashed it.

sorry for the confusion and late response,i forgot about the /0 bit. with the change to 4.2/4.3 the location of the "sd card" changed to data/media/0(from simply data/media) so it is is neccessary to open the /0 folder to find all your sd card content when looking for your rom to flash in recovery,since recovery just opend up data/media.

i assume your trouble re-entering recovery was the inability to get to hboot to select recovery,very likely due to the "fastboot" setting being checked in settings/power.

the "factory reset" option from the booted OS would normally take you to the stock recovery to wipe all data,so thats why you ended up in cw.

for future reference,there are a few ways to get to recovery:
-uncheck fastboot and power off for a few seconds
-hold power and vol down until the softkeys blink and the phone resets
-from an app like "quickboot" from the play store
-from the "power down" menu of many custon roms(wont help if your stock obviously )
-from the cmd window:
adb reboot recovery will boot you directly to recovery

or even:
adb reboot bootloader will get you to fastboot,where you can select bootloader,then recovery

again,sorry for the late response. guess my nyquil took me out sooner than i anticipated

holler if you need anythign else

No prob and thanks for answering. I wish I was done, but it's been 8 hours and the phone still has the cyanogen droid head with an arrow swirling around it like it's installing. It has flashed white with a vibration about 7 times (reboots?). I'll leave it for the day now and go to work, but what should I do if it doesn't finish? How long is too long?

yikes! 8 hours is definately too long. ive seen the initial boot take 20ish minues,but definately not multiple hours. looks like something went wrong with the install.

i would restore your backup to get the phone working,and then check a couple things:
-make sure the rom you downloaded was for your variant(dont flash international rom on vzw or sprint versions,etc)
-check the md5 and make sure the download was good
-flash again,making sure to do the wipe data/facotry reset

you are s off,correct?

I thought I was. How do I check that again? Also, how do I get out of this install? Hold the power button down, I suppose and hopefully get back to recovery?

Ok, much better evening. Up and running CM 10! Followed your suggestions, Scotty, and all checked out (md5 sum, s-off, etc). I tried again and it worked. My mistake was to reboot from the data wipe when I couldn't find the /sdcard/ folder. Flashing the rom has to be right after the data wipe, then all is well. I'm very relieved I didn't brick or lose root or something. Thanks again, Mike

It's running, but now I'm unable to get Windows 7 to recognize it. I have tried it with and without HTC Sync installed. I also uninstalled synch and ran drivers linked from Scotty (-install drivers: if you have htc sync installed,you should allready have drivers. if not,you can install htc sync,or install these modified htc drivers from revolutionary (driver mirror)) Device manager sees "HTC One" with the yellow triangle. "Update driver" and rebooting, etc doesn't seem to help. Without this I can't move files (music, my dropbox titanium backup, etc) to the device, which is pretty limiting. Any ideas?

are you trying to get adb working? or mount as a media device?

if youre trying to get adb working,youll need to tap the build number in settings/about phone in order to get the developer menu to appear in settings. you can then enable usb debugging,and it should work at that point. you shoulnt have to do anything special to get it working in fastboot.

if youre trying to mount it as a drive to transfer pics,files,etc, the couple times ive plugged in my newly aquired nexus 7 that storage doesnt pop up until i go to the plug in setting(cant member its exact location at the moment) and uncheck "mount as media device" and then recheck it. should be able to access that setting from the noticiation tab when you plug it in
