Default How to Unlock the Bootloader, install recovery, and Root your HTC One S

Important note: HTC One S has two versions (S3/S4)
Make sure you use the correct recovery/ROM files for your version. Using the incorrect ones can lead to bootloops and possibly bricking your device.


In order to root your HTC One S, you need to unlock the bootloader and install a custom recovery. I am going to go through this entire process here step by step.

Note: I have a Windows 7 PC, so the instructions are written for that OS. I am sure they will work for other operating systems (OSX, Linux, Vista, XP) with minimal adjustments. I can add any linux specific changes later (if requested) when I have time to test it all on my linux partition.

First of all we need to download and install a few prerequisites:
  • HTC Sync (Windows only)
  • Java Runtime Environment
  • Android SDK
If you already have these on your computer, feel free to skip ahead to the next post.

Install HTC Sync
  1. Download the file here: HTC Help Center. It's under the header "HTC Sync for all HTC Android phones"
  2. Run the setup_3.2.10.exe file that you downloaded. The filename will probably change whenever they update it after this has been made.
  3. Select the language.
  4. Select "Next >".
  5. A window will pop up explaining that you need to disable the anti-virus software on your computer. Do so and select "OK".
  6. Accept the license agreement, and select "Next >".
  7. Select Complete and then "Next >".
  8. Select "Install".
  9. Select "Finish". HTC Sync is now installed.

Installing JRE
  1. Download the file here: Java Runtime Environment.
  2. Select "Install >".
  3. Select "Close". JRE is now installed.

Installing the SDK
  1. Download the installer_r18-windows.exe from Android SDK | Android Developers.
  2. Run the installer_r18-windows.exe.
  3. Select "Next >".
  4. Select "Next >".
  5. Change the destination folder to "C:\Android\android-sdk\" (this will make it easier for other steps).
  6. Select "Next >".
  7. Select "Install".
  8. Select "Next >".
  9. Select "Finish".

Optional - Adding the Envrionment Variables (Path)
  1. Right click on Computer and select "Properties" (or navigate to Control Panel\System and Security\System).
  2. Select "Advance system settings".
  3. Select "Environment Variables...".
  4. Under System variables click on "Path" then select "Edit..."
  5. Add this to the end of the list:
    Code:
    ;C:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\
  6. Select "OK".
  7. Select "OK".
  8. Select "OK".

Default Unlocking the bootloader on the HTC One S.

Unlocking the bootloader on the HTC One S.

To do this go to Welcome to HTCdev and create an account. After you get that created do the following:

  • Go to HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader.
  • Select "All Other Supported Models" and "Begin Unlock Bootloader".
  • A pop up box will appear asking if you wish to continue as this process can void all or parts of your warranty. Click "Yes".
  • You then need to click the two boxes to accept the legal terms, and press "Proceed to Unlock Instructions".


Here are the steps you need to go through:

  1. Remove and reinsert the battery. You can't remove the battery, just hold the power button down until the phone powers off.
  2. Press Volume Down and Power to start the device into Bootloader mode.
  3. Use the Volume buttons to select up or down. Highlight Fastboot and press the Power button.
  4. Connect the device to the computer via a usb cable.
  5. Open up command prompt. ( Start > Run > Type CMD).
  6. Navigate to where your fastboot.exe is. If you followed my instructions to set up the SDK they would be in c:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools, so you would type in Command Prompt:
    Code:
    cd c:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
  7. In the command prompt type:
    Code:
    fastboot oem get_identifier_token
  8. You will see a long block of text. Copy and paste this text into the the token field below (in the command prompt: Right Click > Mark > highlight the block of text > Right click to copy).
    You will see one of the following two screens:
    Ref. 9a

    Ref. 9b

    When copying the token, start with this line:
    Code:
    <<<< Identifier Token Start >>>>
    And end with this line:
    Code:
    <<<<< Identifier Token End >>>>>
    Note: Only copy the highlighted sections above. Do not copy the INFO or (bootloader) prefix
  9. Paste this string of text into the token field at the bottom of the page and hit Submit in order to receive your unlock code binary file. You will receive this information in your email.
  10. You will receive an email from HTC-Unlockbootloader@htc.com with the attachment: Unlock_code.bin. Save this file in the same folder as your fastboot files (For Example: C:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools).
  11. In the command prompt type:
    Code:
    fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
    In the command prompt you will see the following message:
  12. On your phone you will now see the disclaimer. Please read this carefully as this action may void your warranty. Use the Volume buttons to highlight your choice, and the Power button to make your selection. If you select Yes, your phone will be reset to its’ factory default settings, and your bootloader will be unlocked. If you select No, your phone will reboot and no modifications will have been made.

Installing TWRP 2 Recovery. (Option #1, S4 or S3 versions available)


  1. Download the TWRP 2 Recovery by Team Win. (Get the S3/VilleC2 version here.)
  2. Place the openrecovery-twrp-2.2.1-ville.img file in the same location as the fastboot.exe (If you followed my instructions to set up the SDK it would be in c:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools).
  3. On your phone, hold the power button down until the it powers off (10 seconds or so).
  4. Press Volume Down and Power to start the device into Bootloader mode.
  5. Highlight "Fastboot" and press the Power button. (Use the Volume buttons to select up or down).
  6. Connect the device to the computer via a usb cable.
  7. Open up the command prompt. ( Start > Run > Type CMD).

  9. Now type:
    Quote:
    fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.4.1.0-ville.img

The TWRP 2 Recovery is now on your phone. Now is a good time to make a nandroid backup, after you do that reboot your phone.

Note: The S3/VilleC2 version has a different file name, make sure to use the correct name for the S3 version as it is different than the one listed above.

Noobish question I know but I unlocked the bootloader with zero issues but in trying to flash CWM the command prompt will not take me to the folder where I put the file (the folder you suggested)

How do I get command prompt to take me to where I want to go?

Did you type "cd C:/Android/android-sdk/platform-tools/" in the cmd prompt?

As long as that is where you installed sdk and put the recovery.img, it should work fine.

I know it's something really small, but you have no idea how much you helped me put....literally.

Thanks you so much for your time and speed in answering, I'm grateful.

I'm also happily rooted, so thank you.

Default Bootloader mode

[*]Remove and reinsert the battery. You can't remove the battery, just hold the power button down until the phone powers off.[*]Press Volume Down and Power to start the device into Bootloader mode.

When powering down you can do a restart and hold the volume down getting you into Bootloader mode.

Hi, I'm a noob here.
Pardon me for my English before..

This is my first time for using Android, and I want to root it.
There's no problem when I'm unlocking the bootloader, until the next step.
It always shown a splash screen with red message on the bottom:
Quote:
This build is for development purposes only. Do not distribute outside of HTC without HTC's written permission. Failure to comply may load to legal action.
.
Then I wait for 20-30 minutes, and nothing happened. So I reboot my phone.

I've trying Superboot too, or using another boot image, and it does the same.
My phone is One S with S3 processor, S4 series aren't available in my country..
Any issues with this type?

The S3 is different and will require a different recovery (I believe that there is a TWRP2 for it). The process will be the same, just different files. You should be squared away by flashing the S3 recovery.

Also, do not flash ROMs for the S4 as they won't work on the S3 version.

The red message is normal, it just won't work with a recovery (or ROM) built for the S4 version.

I will try to get specific instructions and a disclaimer added this afternoon/evening.

This should be the correct recovery for the S3 version.
http://goo.im/devs/teamwin/twrp2/openrecovery-twrp-2.2.1-villec2.img
Here is a link to the XDA thread on it.
[RECOVERY][S3/villec2] TWRP 2.2.1 with on-screen keyboard! [2012-07-17] - xda-developers

Here is a link to the only ROM thread I have seen so far.
[ROM][S3] BackToBasics_v2 (based on RUU_VILLEC2_U_ICS_40_HTC_Europe_1.11.401.110) - xda-developers

S3 superboot link.
[ROOT] [S3] VilleC Superboot R1 - xda-developers

I will work on getting things sorted for the S3 version here at AF (I've brought it to the attention of the site admin Phases), I will make sure to deal with it ASAP.

I've trying Superboot, n it works. Many thanks! \/


Umm.. may I ask another question?
During recovery installation, there's a command:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery <boot.img>
I do this many times.
What it does actually? Does it do like a 'format' then copying the image file, or it just copying anyway?
Should I doing this one? :
Code:
fastboot clear cache
Sorry if this is a stupid question..

It's not a stupid question. It will overwrite the recovery partition (no need to clear cache for that), but it should be a recovery.img (like the TWRP2 one I linked) not a boot.img.

You should clear the cache/dalvik cache in recovery when flashing ROMs (as well as /data and any other specific instructions given for that ROM).

Oh, I see..
Just wondering if this has been asked frequently

Thanks, its more clear now

I downloaded and installed the Android SDK package, however the version now availabe for download is v 20.0.3..I am using XP PRO SP3, and could nor figure out where to change the change the enviromnetal variables path, but as I stsrted out in DOS 2.2, some 20+ years ago, navigating directories is not a problem. What is a problem though is that there is not a C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\ directory, but separate platfom and tools directories. On another quick note, this is a T-Mobile S4 version of the HTC One S, that I just got today. It is till locked from the factory. Does that make a difference?

Thanks, will keep reading FAQ,s look forward to rooting all my new Android devices.

What is a problem though is that there is not a C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\ directory, but separate platfom and tools directories. On another quick note, this is a T-Mobile S4 version of the HTC One S, that I just got today. It is till locked from the factory. Does that make a difference?

Thanks, will keep reading FAQ,s look forward to rooting all my new Android devices.
Whichever directory has the adb.exe and fastboot.exe is the one that you need to add to the environmental variables. I don't have a Win XP machine to test the specific steps, but it should be similar. And this guide will work with a T-Mobile S4 version (it's what I have).

I'm running the windows 8 dev preview (free) on parallels on my mac. Any reason you could forsee this not working on it? I can install windows 7 if necessary, but I'd rather not because for some reason it makes my processor spike like crazy and my fan runs even when I'm not using parallels.

Thanks for all the help in advance.

Also the SDK is asking for JDK (Java Development Kit). I don't think it's a problem. But I'm curious because it's not in the guide. Might it have to do with the fact that the SDK is r20 instead of r18 listed in the guide?

It should work the same on windows 8, but I haven't tested to know for sure. And yes the JDK is a prerequisite for the full sdk install.

I need to add links for the mini-sdk alternative, but I won't get the chance for a few days.

Ok. One more question. This is probably going to be more of an opinion/speculation. I've done my research. If I unlock my boot loader, I can "relock" the phone, but it will never again be "locked". So if i'm doing this, is it a waste of money to have the insurance because they will know the phone has been unlocked and refuse service? Or, in your opinion, will they still honor insurance claims in the future?

Usually, it will still cover hardware issues or other things (not sure if the insurance covers water damage, etc), but not software related issues. It may depend on the specific person you deal with, but usually that's how it works.

i used the One_S_All-In-One_Kit_v1.0 and rooted my phone without a hitch, my problem started after i tried to flash a new rom (without making a naindroid backup) and now im stuck with the following message

This build is for development purposes only. Do not distribute outside of HTC without HTC's written permission. Failure to comply may load to legal action.

after hours of reading and finding this thread, ive followed your guide step by step, deciding to use the TWRP 2 Recovery. once in the recovery i use ADB to push roms (BackToBasicsV2 & TrickDroid) to my sdcard and the recovery says they install fine but when i reboot, i get stuck with the same message.


ive also tried relocking my bootloader and using the closet carrier RUU i can find and get error 140 part way through the process
RUU_Ville_U_Rogers_WWE_1.70.631.1_Radio_0.16.31501 S.02_10.18.31501S.08L

That red text is normal. But not booting past it is not. Do you know if you have the S3 or S4 version?

when i use the bootloader to access my recovery, i get the for development purposes only message for a few seconds before the recovery starts, is that normal as well?

HTC One S box
Model Z520m
CPU speed 1.5 GHz, dual core

i read through XDA and the closest to that model # is Z520e(s4), so my version is s4?

HTC One S Z520m 16GB (Unlocked) (Gradient Metal)

Quick google search confirms it is an s4.

I was actually going to use that all-in-one kit you speak of, but now I'm going to hold off until you figure out a solution or the problem. Please keep me updated. Either post here or PM me if you could.

Thanks!

btw you could probably get a nandroid backup somewhere on the internet. People usually upload a stock nandroid backup for when people screw up like this.

Yeah it's normal. If you have an S4,then the back to basics ROM won't work, it's for the S3 version.

I will be back to check in after a while and can try to help out more then.

I would just follow the steps in the guide that way you know how to do it yourself. The all-in-one root kits are nice, but when something goes wrong it can be harder to figure out if you don't know exactly what happened.

There is a thread with nandroid backups (for the T-Mobile US version), but they only work for ClockworkMod Recovery. HTC One S Stock CWM Nandroid Backups (T-Mobile US)

I will see if I can find an RUU for you. Is yours carrier branded? (If it's the same as the one you linked it is probably the one here (RUU download mirrors.), but I can't say for sure without more info.

the all-in-one kit does work, unlocks the bootloader and installs clockworkmod recovery but the recovery is out of date and.... to be honest, falls short compared to TWRP 2

as for the for development purposes only message, i was missing a crucial step, Flashing the stock boot.img from the ROM with fastboot.

everything is all good. THANK YOU agentc13 for writing this guide and also for taking the time read and reply to my post

Yeah, it works fine. I'm just a fan of people knowing how to do it all manually themselves.

Ah, yeah, you need to flash that in order to have the correct kernel. Glad you got it sorted. With TWRP2 you shouldn't need to flash the boot.img (kernel, etc) separately (CWM still needs that step), so that shouldn't be an issue for you in the future.

There was an issue with goo.im losing a lot of downloads a little while back. Here's the development thread fir VilleC2 (S3) version of TWRP2: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=29075644.

Quick question for you. I'm gonna root my wifes phone as she's having problems with it running slow and the gps being poor though I'm a bit rusty as I haven't played about with development since rooting my Streak 5 over a year ago.
Anyway, my question is what is the environment variables for and is there a preferred bootloader as we only had the choice of clockwork with the dell?

The environment variables are just so you use adb/fastboot commands from any directory. As opposed to just the one where you installed them. If you only use adv/fastboot for this it's not necessary, but it doesn't hurt either.

I prefer the TWRP2 recovery as you usually don't need to use fastboot to flash kernels, but if you plan on sticking with the stock ROM, it's not a big difference. There isn't a way to change the hboot without s-off.

Default Stuck in Recovery

Hi,
I managed to unlock the bootloader without any problems using One_S_All-In-One_Kit_v1.0, but when i flashed the recovery it says OK on the CMD screen but when i reboot i get stuck with this message...
This build is for development purposes only. Do not distribute outside of HTC without HTC's written permission. Failure to comply may load to legal action.


Then i found this thread, I tried to flash the recovery again with the SDK but also got stuck in the same place!!
I tried CWM and TWRP both didn't work for me..
Any suggestions??

Do you know which version of the phone you have (S3 or S4)? I am guessing that you have the S3 and flashed the recovery for the S4. Try this recovery http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=29075644 (make sure to modify the command to match the different file name).

OK I'm stuck on Step 7. When I type fastboot oem get_identifier_token in Command Prompt it just gets stuck and says <waiting for device>.

USB Debugging is checked. What do I do?

Is it in the same folder as fastboot.exe? I think that is what you are saying, but not 100% sure I read it right. If so make sure you navigate there via the command line (cd /....) then enter the command and it should work.

You need to reboot into the bootloader and put the phone in fastboot mode. If you have usb debugging checked you are booted normally and you can't use fastboot commands in that situation.

Ok so I turn the phone on by holding power and volume down, then I go to fastboot and then connect the USB. This is what I have been doing so far and I've been getting the message. Are you saying I need to uncheck USB debugging?

Okay, you are un fastboot mode like you should be. When you type "fastboot devices" in the command prompt what does it say?

You have the correct drivers installed?

OK I've got past the waiting for devices. I was on Windows 8 and I tried it on Vista and it worked. But I think I made a mistake. I did not uncheck Fast boot from the power menu. Is this a problem?

I have unlocked the bootloader, but the above issue remains. Do I need to stop, or can I go onto the next step?
