Default The HTC One root thread

this thread is intended to be a "one stop shop" for rooting any variation of the HTC One.

currently,the known method of rooting is to unlock the bootloader via htcdev,then use a custom recovery to install superuser root files. htcdev's directions can be a lil confusing,so hopefully this will clear it up if youve never rooted a phone,worked with the command window,or are just confused about how to set things up with your PC/mac/linux machine.

PLEASE NOTE that the unlock process will erase your personal data. this was done purposely,for your protection.

the general steps are simple:
1)unlock the bootloader (for non-developer editions)
2)either temporarily or permantly install a custom recovery
3)use that custom recovery to install "superuser" root files.

for your convenience,a general index of this thread:
-brief explanation of what you're going to do and what your options are post #1
-tips and tricks to backup data pre-root post #5
-unlock and install recovery with windows post #2
-unlock and install recovery with linux post #3
-unlock and install recovery with a mac post #4
-tips and tricks to backup data post root post #6

before you start download a couple of files
-miniadb
-supersu from this thread (the download link you want is about halfway down the page,and labled UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.25.zip)
-go to HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader and register an account

Default root with windows

set up adb and prepair to root






you are now ready to unlock your bootloader!

1)unlock using htcdev





2)flash a recovery





3)flash superuser root files*

Many thanks for your extremely detailed and comprehensive outline of rooting. You mention sources for image recoveries for Sprint and international. Do you have any idea where to look for other recoveries? I guess I would need one for Telus (Canada).

Thanks,
Richard

Thanks for the detailed guide scotty85.

Something is amiss with my One though.

I'm with Virgin Mobile (AKA Bell Canada).
Can get into bootloader and see UNLOCKED.
Attempting temporary recovery.

Upon running fastboot boot recovery.img my One just restarts and boots up like normal. MD5 sum on image checked out. I tried a few different recovery images as well - can't actually boot into any of them.

IHave you tried the sprint image? Virgin mobile I believe a cdma carrier,so the gsm images will not likely work. Sorry if the Canada comment above was.confusing(telus is gsm)

A word of warning,some folks(myself included) have had issues flashing superuser from the temporary recovery. The flash appears fine,but upon reboot,no Su in app drawer and root access.

If you have this same issue,don't beat yourself up trying to get it to work,just go ahead and permantly install it. Here's what I did to have a copy of my stock recovery:
-fastboot boot clockwork(not twrp)
-make a backup. your stock recovery will be in the nandroid
-reboot to bootloader
-install recovery of choice permantly
-reboot
-reboot to recovery
-install superuser
-reboot and have root acess

Hope that helps

Quite right, Virgin/Bell is CDMA.

I just tried the TWRP Sprint recovery and ClockWorkMod Sprint recovery to the same effect - phone just boots into its own OS after the fastboot boot command.

Scotty,

First off, great guide. I am, however, running into a bit of an issue that lordemporer seems to be having as well. When I attempt to flash the recovery image I get the small green line at the top right hand side of the screen and the return is very similar to what you posted. The problem is, that after I reboot the phone normally and attempt to reboot the phone into recovery the phone simply reboots normally.

Here's a copy and paste of what I did. Also, I renamed the recovery file name to twrp.img.

I tried a few more things this morning including trying to use a temporary recovery and the permanent recovery. Each and every time the phone reboots it reboots as normal. I also attempted to reboot the phone while in fastboot using the selection option of loading the recovery. That too, did not work. At one point I remember seeing the little red letters at the top of the screen saying the phone was booting into recovery but that flashed very quickly then the normal green HTC logo showed back up again and the phone booted normally.

I've also tried with Fast Booting option on and off in the power settings menu. Neither way worked.

Ok, I got it figured out, finally! When you reboot the phone after you flash the recovery image you want to make sure you HOLD DOWN the power button. Otherwise the phone will reboot as normal. If you HOLD DOWN the power button it'll stick to it's recovery reboot. Luckily this is something I had to do with my old Galaxy S3 so I thought to give it a try.

Thanks again for the guide. Everything is up and working great now!

hi chooched! sorry for my late response,i was going to suggest some basic connectivity checks,as alot of times bad usb cables,things running on the PC,and other small issues can interfere with the image flash,even tho it may look successful.

thanks for sharing your finding,as ive never experienced that on an htc phone before and would not have thot to have you try it im sure lots of folks may find it useful

just holler if yuo have any more questions

I was really hopeful for the power button trick but no avail.

I uninstalled iTunes and HTC Sync, and installed the HTC driver linked above with no effect.
Used a different USB Cable.

Tried repeating the process on my Linux server.

e59a5e15556a9ddbad7e89d7902ed093 recovery.img

booting...
OKAY [ 0.000s]

Same result, just boots like normal.

Hmm not sure why it won't boot... Sounds like it doesn't like the image for some reason. I guess it could be somehow different enuff to need it's own image,but that seems unlikely.

Maybe the results of:
fastboot getvar all
would tell us something?

hmm. now im even more confused. your phone is being used on a cdma carrier,correct? is it using a sim card?

i would think youd share a model number and and product number with the sprint one(m7_wls)

but... you are m7_ul,and model id 712000,both of wich are consistent with the AT&T version.

best guess at this point,is that maybe your unique configuration does require its own image,i will dig around and see what i can find out

It does indeed use a SIM card.

I agree it is confusing as Wikipedia indicates Bell/Virgin is a CDMA carrier.

I can't find a concrete statement one way or the other on bell.ca but the specs on some of their phones like the iPhone 5 have GSM.

If it is using gsm frequencies,and is m7_ul,I'm not sure why the gsm recoveries are not working...

So I went ahead and tried the permanent recovery option + holding the power button and that worked. I was nervous about this option given the difficulties with temporary recovery but decided to go ahead with it anyway.

GSM file was correct.

Awsome,I'm glad that it worked for you,tho I still can't imagine why it wouldn't boot the image it installed,then booted to. This phone has more quirks than I think I've ever seen.

I was hesitant to.recomend permantly installing it,since there is currently no ruu for your build,and now there is no way to back up stock recovery since it is gone. Hopefully an ruu will pop up,but in a worse case you can just restore an m7_ul stock recovery from another build. Maybe from the att build that you share a modle id with.

Welcome to root,android forums,and the wonderul HTC one. just holler if you have any questions

Not sure if this was asked or mentioned, but does this achieve S-Off or S-On?

Default How to flash new kernel

Hi, scott

I have done permanent recovery based on your guide

You mentioned "however,there are disadvantages to the permant recovery. most notably, it CANNOT INSTALL KERNELS. therefore,restoring backups and flashing roms will require a seperate flash of the kernel,aka the boot image"


If I need to flash a new kernel to my stock rom, what I need to do? Can you give some guide or link ?

Thanks

this is for the rezound,but the same pricipals apply: [HOW TO] manually flash roms

you might also consider simply becoming s off,as this will let a permanent recovery install kernels like youre used to. in addiditon,it will allow you to easily remove the tampered and relocked watermarks

OK, had the phone a week and no bugs so far, so that's long enough. S-Off and unlocked using revone

Just to mention, an advantage of unlocking via revone is that it does not wipe the phone, unlike the HTCDev unlock.

It's the UL round here, though I don't have LTE in my tariff. There's only one LTE provider at the moment, and their tariffs are still overpriced for what they offer. Hopefully will improve when the other networks roll our later this year.

my first one was a factory s-off M7_u. i liked it alot,as it was black instead of silver when s off methods became available,i donated it to my dad and picked up myself a t mobile variant. tmo lte is up and running around here,so i figured silver was worth fast data,and the ability to use umts and hspa+ in non refarmed areas

t mobile only offers them in silver i thot about getting a black ul,but until someone figures out how to activate all the bands an international or att variant wont pick up t mobiles 1700 band hspa when i leave m7 refarmed area. figured if i was gonna spend the $$ again i wanted to be sure it would pick up t mobiles LTE and get 3g/4g when i leave dayton.

the silver has grown on me but i have to admit the black is still much sexier

That's correct. I used revone to S-Off and unlock this morning, with no data loss. A utility which can clear the "relocked" and "tampered" flags clearly has no problem with just altering the lock flags (or however it's controlled) directly

It's good to have Titanium back

i did s-off following your another guide -- good job! thanks

but after that, when i try to use TWRP to install a new kernel (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2233665), it doesn't work -- NOT flash at all, can you give some guidance?

thanks

what is happening? the flash is failing,or the kernel is not changing?

if your s off and having issues,might give cw a try instead of twrp

When I try to install the new kernel from twrp, it simply says fail -- I did s off successfully

So I wonder if there's some special thing I need to do to flash kernel

I have been with iphone all the time until recently switch to htc one, so pretty new to android

Thanks

Have you flashed anything else? I'm not very familiar with TWRP yet (*), but recoveries on my previous device generally had an option to toggle signature validation, and if that was accidentally set on you couldn't flash unsigned zips (i.e. almost everything you ever wanted to flash!). This caught a few people out, so I suggest looking for this just in case it's relevant here.

(*) And can't just boot into it to test because I actually only did the temporary install so far. Reason being that we're expecting an OTA soon, and I thought I might try to update to that (and capture it as a backup) before I started playing with ROMs.

I can erase the "unlocked" and "Tampered" flags with the Revone binary?

the kernel must be packed up as a recovery flashable zipfile. if youre simply trying to install a boot image with recovery that wont work

if you can link the kernel youre trying to use we can have a look.

that is correct i personally would leave unlocked until such a time that you need to be locked. this lets you have a couple extra fastboot commands that may come in handy,and locked is easy enuff to achieve with a revones tool,or these recovery flashable zip files: [how to] reset your lock status flag

tampered will disapear once a new hboot is flashed,just an FYI,but revones tool is nice to go ahead and eliminate it

if you do get an OTA,you can also capture the ota file in your phone. just navigate to your downloads folder,and copy it to somewhere else(leave the original in place,obviously). it contains firmware that can be useful to have,and we can upload it in case other folks need it

also make sure you havent deleted any bloatware,and do not attempt to OTA if youve changed CID or MID

I have remained unlocked for these reasons but this has occurred to me in the past, why would anyone need to relock a bootloader? Warranty aside?

Or do you mean leave the Unlocked flag alone?

only reason i would ever lock,is to get rid of the reocked/unlocked watermarks for legitimate warranty purposes.

there is no benefit to being locked that i can come up with!

Yeah, knew the bloatware bit. I've resisted so far, but just knowing that "stocks" is on my phone.....

Not changed cid myself, but would need to make sure revone hasn't - their tools for other phones sometimes just set a supercid automatically.
