Ok, I'll try that. Before the flash I would plug it in and it would come up in Win Explorer as a drive on my computer. I could then transfer files that way. Not sure what getting adb working would do now for me. I did do the 7 tap on the build no. and check usb debugging already. I'll look for the "mount as a media device" switch. What if I go to recovery and then plug it into the computer so the OS isn't fighting it?

I found the mass storage thing. It's greyed out and says "insert media" so it's like it doesn't know to view the /sdcard/ folder as a separate drive. Nothing happens when I tap it. There are a few posts around about this and I wonder if it's a bug in CM.

im not sure if youve found the right setting.. my nexus has the sd card greyed out in storage also. when i plug it in,i get an icon in the status bar that takes me to 2 settings when i tap it. one is to "mount as storage media" and the other is something else,to mount as an mtp device,i think. i have to uncheck the storage media setting,and check it again before the nexus will show up in windows explorer as a drive. ill try and get more definate menu settings later.

you definately will not be able to mount as a media device in recovery. youll have to be in the booted OS. it may be a cm bug,this is the first phone ive ever had ive not run cm on

you might try the GPE rom,wich is still nice AOSP,just with beats audio and missing some cm features unless there are some particular cm features you cant live without,the GPE would give you a nice AOSP fix

I guess i want to mount as a media device. Not sure what you mean about "get adb working". Is there some functionality I could get with adb, like access to the phone's memory? I tapped the build number, enabled usb debugging and that pops up when I plug it in, but no access in win explorer. I did find the "mount as a media device" switch, but it's greyed and says insert card, suggesting it doesn't recognize the /sdcard/ folder as a drive. There's a few posts around about similar problems, making me think it's a CM 10.2 problem. There was some add on app made for a Galaxy or something running 10.1 that addressed the problem, but doubt that would help. What would happen if I plugged the phone in when in recovery? Or maybe there's a way to wirelessly transfer files to/from the phone on my home network?

By "get adb working" I simply meant getting the phone to comunicate with the pc via a command window so that adb commands can be used(adb devices,adb reboot bootloader,and so on). I thot that was what you were after when you first asked since you mentioned installing the drivers.

I understand what you want to do,I'm just not sure what else to tell you. Could be a bug with cm,that's why I suggested trying the GPE Rom.

If you want to stick with cm,search the development thread and see if others have come up with a workaround. If there's an app that will mount sd card,or let you transfer data wirelessly,that's where you'll find it. Only other thing I can think of is to use the comand window and adb commands to pull certain files from the phone to the pc. It would be somewhat clunky and cumbersome,but technically should work.

Ok I got stuck in flashing the temporary recovery img...Please help

Everything went fine till I flashed recovery. The green bar did come up on the phone but after that nothing. it froze and the buttons didn't even work. Had to force shut down...Any suggestions?

I didn't wait too long before forcing shut down. Was a bit scared to brink it. Maybe something like 40 sec to 1 min max....Is the rebooting slow? Should I try to wait longer?

Thanks guys

edit: Oh, I used the international one because I live in India...

Oh snap...Read the earlier posts and realized I have the hboot 1.55...So basically I can't temp root. Sorry for reposting the same problem!
Anyway if anyone finds a solution please let me know! Don't want to perm root till I get Kitkat

Technically it's the recovery which would be temp, not the rooting.

TBH the only thing I can think of would be to get hold of the stock recovery for your phone model/software version, flash the custom recovery, root the phone, then flash the stock recovery back. What I don't know is how exactly the stock recovery should match for an OTA update to work. I guess you could extract a stock recovery from an RUU.

Or you could just root and flash a custom ROM based on 4.4 right now, and not wait for the OTA.

Sorry for the confusion... I need to either add a warning to the OP or just remove the temp recovery section since newer hboots are no longer allowing it

As hadron said,best option now if you don't want to flash a roms is to install the recovery and then re-install the stock recovery. What is your build number? We can try and find your stock recovery.

The us developer edition has gotten its update,you definately could flash a custom rom and not have to wait for it from your carrier

Thanks guys. Not sure exactly where is it that the phone is getting stuck. I don't think I am rooted because when I try to install use SU, it tells me there is no SU binary.
Can I install recovery even if I'm not rooted?

If the bootloader is unlocked you can install recovery.

You won't be rooted until you've used a custom recovery to root it.

you are unable to launch a temporary recovery. you should be able to install the permanent recovery just fine.

are you having an error installing it? as we said,if you give us your build number,we can try and help you find a stock recovery to install afterwards so youre still stock.

Well now that I finally pulled the trigger and got the HTC One I'm looking at rooting it. I wanted to check and make sure the Superuser v1.25 file is the current file to use with 4.3.

sorry for not answering earlier. With all the holidays and all, got kind of busy.
When I try to flash recovery, it just freezes. That's it.

My build number is 3.63.707.4 CL271278

That's what Scotty suffered with hboot 1.55 (post #106 in this thread). But it seemed, to say the least, weird that that didn't work, and I've not seen widespread reports of this. I don't know whether Scotty learned more?

I suppose you could try rumrunner s-off (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2487888). If that runs then if you still can't flash recovery you would be able to change hboot.

as hadron said,i was unable to fastboot boot anything as well with hboot 1.55,and am still not on hboot 1.56. seems to be a new "feature" of the bootloader im finding it true across the board,DNA is unable to fastboot boot anything on its newest update as well it is also true my first experiences with hboot 1.55,i was unable to fastboot flash as well,but i have been able to since then,may have been a wierd fluke on that particular hboot/day.

im afraid that your only option will be to follow the directions for a permanent recovery,and when youre done,you can just use that same process to flash the stock recovery back. let me know if you have the freezing with fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img,and i will pack up a recovery for you to install in a slightly different manner.

you are in luck,that some kind soul has uploaded an OTA pacakge for your build,wich will contain your stock recovery(and other firmware). you can find the pacakge here: OTA M7 U JB43 SENSE55 MR HTC Asia WWE 3.63.707.4-2.24.707.3 Release - HTC1Guru

and it would be nice to thank mr crushalot here for his contributions and hosting an assortment of OTAs and RUUs in his thread here on android forums([Stock ROM] Easy Aroma Reset's | Many Versions | ROM + Recovery + Radio | Get OTA's)

im downloading your ota package currently. if you wish you can download it as well(its a hefty update at 706 MB) or you can just let me extract it and upload the recovery for you.

just holler if you have questions

If you can get adb/fastboot working on your MacBook then you can use this same process.

Hey guys. I'm a bit new to this so I'm not entirely sure if this is a dumb question, but I'm just wondering if this method will work for my Sprint htc one running 4.4.2 or are there newer versions of any files/different operations need since I'm running the most recent android version?

Yes the basics are the same but it's vital you get a recovery made only for Sprint Here >> Techerrata Downloads - Browsing m7wls

So unlock your bootloader at HTCDEV.com
flash the custom recovery
fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.0-m7wls.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader

enter recovery and on exit choose yes to install Root

you now ready to backup your phone and install custom Rom's

Also, for the record, I can root and flash custom recovery before "backing up" my stock setup, right? Or is there a way I'm supposed to do that before flashing twrp?

You can use Helium to do an app/data backup before starting.

Unlocking the bootloader will wipe the phone, so I'd recommend backing up first (there is a red warning about this in the first post of the thread).

Thanks for the suggestion. I meant more along the lines of full system backup of the stock ROM. I'm given to understand that I'll need that if I ever plan to go back/start over if I have any significant issues. Am I wrong about that? I'm essentially just trying to make sure I don't royally screw myself by not researching what I'm doing enough before attempting it and then finding myself totally out of my depth. Any help much appreciated.

Once you have TWRP installed you can back up the ROM.

Make sure you move a copy of your backup to a.safe location on your pc afterward(I'd keep one on the phone as well)

Be careful not to end up like me with 180 gigs of backups and roms and ruu's scattered all over the place in dropboxes and skydrives and flash drives and and and

Ok so I've finally worked up the cahones to give this a go, but I have a few final (haha probably not actually final ) questions. Looking through the thread in its entirety, I've noticed all the issues with newer hboot versions and am wondering if I will still be able to get s-off through the solutions mentioned. It seems as though revone is out of the question, but rumrunner will still work, right? Also, more general query, how can I check to see what hboot variant I am on? I'm assuming I'm at least 1.55 given the comments earlier and that I'm yet to modify anything so I'm stock 4.4.2 at this point, but it seems like something that would be good to know in general. Additionally, assuming I succeed, once I am s-off would you guys recommend me downgrading to an older hboot as was also discussed earlier? Lots of questions, I know, and sorry if I am repeating anything from earlier. I tried to look through and make sure not top just repost things already discussed

Thanks in advance fellas


Update: I did some poking around and it looks like firewater (from the same guys who sourced rumrunner) works with getting s-off for all hboot up to 1.56. Anyone have any experience working with that?

You can check your hboot version by booting into the bootloader (boot while pressing the volume down key). It tells you at the top of the screen.

No experience of firewater, because I did it back when revone still worked. But it doesn't look any more complicated than any other method, and seems to be the most effective method around at the moment from what I've read.

Thanks for the hboot info. I'll try to avoid answering my own questions after posting from now on I'm planning on attempting all this later tonight, so wish me luck

Ok so I feel like I may be being overly cautious, but better safe than sorry. I'm through the htcdev process and I'm preparing to flash the custom recovery. Downloaded the file noted earlier. My question is about the supersu file I will have to use after flashing twrp. In post #1 it says I should look for "UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.25.zip" but I see no such file on the page the link directs me to. Am I just not looking correctly, or should I be using a different version now given the time between the original post and now?

More to the point, having done some more looking around, can I just use the "UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip" file? I'm assuming that this is functionally the same, just a newer version? Thanks in advance.

Edit: Haha I think it's pretty obvious at this point that I'm new to this. I kinda skipped over the "you will need to download the newest superSU from the thread as i described in the download section,and use the recovery menus to flash it." with emphasis on newest SuperSU now shows up in my apps, so I think I got it figured out. Thanks for the clear and informative thread.

Hi, Although I am new to this HTC One forum I am fully competent regards rooting etc. The latest SuperSu.zip from Chainfire can be downloaded from here SuperSU Download - as you can see it's currently version 1.93. I'll probably be spending more time around here awaiting delivery of my One in a day or so.

I used to have the original Desire some 4+ years ago (rotted and S-off at that time), but am coming from a Galaxy Note 2, so certain aspect of the procedures are quite different, i.e. having to S-off to get the full benefit.

I hope I am not too rusty with HTC devices. One quick question to thise who are experienced with the One is, should I S-off prior to flashing custom recovery?

I suspect you can do it either way, since firewater claims it can work on an unrooted device (using a temproot) or rooted.

Rumrunner should work on 4.4 as long as you can unlock the bootloader and install superuser. In some cases you may need also a custom rom with an insecure kernel.

Firewater should work as well,and has been stated,may work on a completely stock device,giving the luxury of not submitting your personal info to HTC to keep on file that you are a bootloader unlocked

Rumrummer is possibly a bit easier on the user,but much trickier to run on a windows pc(enuff so I'd recomend running it from an ubuntu live cd)

Firewater is just some adb commands and should be a little less tempermental with OS parameters,you just need working adb.

I personally would try firewater. Just to make sure you don't have driver issues or other program interference issues,I'd consider running it on ubuntu as well.

Hope that helps

Ok guys, I'm having some serious difficulty. So I got everything done yesterday and flashed a nightly of CM 11, but there were a few things that were bugging me so I decided I'd go back to the stock nandroid backup I made initially, as per the instructions provided in this thread. Once I did that, when I went to restore my apps with titanium backup it got through the process and said a reboot was recommended. However, when I rebooted, I got stuck in a boot loop with the message "the process com.system.androidui has stopped". I booted into fastboot, got to recovery, reflashed the nandroid backup after a full system wipe, and tried the whole process again to the same effect. Any idea how to fix this? I'm kinda losing my mind right now and currently have an essentially unusable device.

Try just restoring the nandroid.

A nandroid backs up apps and data as well as the ROM, so if you restore that you restore the lot. Hence you should not need to restore apps from Titanium afterwards.

The message about rebooting only occurs if you restore system apps from Titanium. So if you use it to transfer apps & data between ROMs, the trick is not to restore system apps or system data. Restoring user apps and their data between ROMs is fine, but system settings tend to be incompatible if the ROMs are not very similar, so restoring system data from a different ROM often causes problems like this.

If the backup was made with the same ROM then it should be fine to restore system stuff, so I'm guessing you backed something up while running CM11?

Absolutely right on all counts. I did things a bit out of order I think and just did nandroid backup of my stock ROM immediately after rooting and then flashed CM11 straightaway, then did titanium backup after getting everything set back up in CM11 rather than the reverse. So I must have been trying to restore CM11 system apps into stock. Thanks for the help.

On a related note, within titanium backup, is there a way to only select user apps as a batch or will I have to go in and choose those apps manually to restore?

Edit: After doing some digging about TB and looking up all the batch commands, I think I have gotten it figured out.

I think you need the paid version for batch restores ("think" because I've had the paid version for several years now, so don't remember the free one very well).

I believe you're right. I paid for it right off the bat though, so I'm not entirely sure either.

Yup,batch backup and restore is one of the biggest motivations to get the paid version. With the free one,you're stuck doing them one at a time.

For minimal issue,only use titanium to restore user installed apps.

In case anyone was curious about the firewater s-off method, I did it yesterday and it was incredibly simple. Works exactly as advertised. And if I can do it, pretty much anyone can. Finally rooted and s-off. Today is a good day.

Awsome! Glad to hear it. Were you able to get the temp root to work?

Well when I found firewater initially, I read the whole thread and it seemed like most people's problems were coming from the temproot method so I just went ahead with the htcdev unlock/root first method. It looked like people were saying that the temproot method didn't work for hboot 1.56 and the devs came out and said they didn't plan on doing any more work to help people who didn't want to do just root first, so I figured might as well not risk it.

Any advice?
Firstly, please edit your post and remove the IMEI - best not to leave those public on the web.

But most importantly, are you sure it's a HTC One developer's edition? Because "jewel" is the codename of the EVO 4G LTE, which is a different phone.

Edit: Ah, after a refresh I see that you spotted this too!
