Using the volume keys, scroll down until you loop back to the top. the up to loop to the bottom, then down to loop back to the top. You should see a message at the bottom about power menu enabled . The power button will now work to select. Or you can just flash TWRP recovery. It's a full touch recovery and much better in my opinion.

Default Thank you CafeKampuchia/Riggleman0421

I hope I didn't mess it up further. Before I saw your posts I think I nuked the stock OS/data.

If I do a standard reboot it just hangs on the white HTC splash screen. I can still get into the HBOOT menu by holding down the volume and it still shows unlocked at the top. However, if I choose Recovery it goes straight into the TWRP menu.

From there I have a bunch of options but none of them seem to do anything. I thought maybe I needed to then install the 'CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip' but that doesn't seem to change anything either. I rooted an HP touchpad in a matter of minutes so this is seriously making me feel like a dim noob.

Yeah, it sounds like all you need to do is step 5, if you haven't already. Do you have an app for checking root?

I think my problem now is this step:

5B. Copy CWM-SuperSU-v0.9x.zip to your SD card.

When I first tried this I had that file on an external SD card, but I think I recall reading after that that the file MUST be on the phone's internal SD storage, correct? When I've done the command line stuff to unlock the bootloader, etc I've hit the 'HBOOT USB' on the phone simultaneously and it's managed to work.

But I can't figure out how to get the phone to show as a drive so I can get the SuperSU zip on the internal storage. The only thing (I think) on there is the TWRP files/program, which loads if I choose 'Recovery' from the phone hboot menu.

As far as root checking app....not sure.

This should be added to the OP. This is the problem I had, and had to install TWRP2. Wish I had seen this before I installed TWRP2 -__-'

It doesn't require the .zip to be on the phone's SD [which is the ROM, as I am told]. It just has to be on the micro SD card in your phone. This can be transfered in 2 ways:
  1. Go to phone settings
  2. Select Connect to PC
  3. And select Disk mode
This is how the phone communicates to the PC. Also, make sure USB debugging [Settings->Developer tools] is on and Fastboot [Settings->Power] is off.

Hope this helps!

I was able to get CWM-SuperSU-v0.9x.zip copied to the sd card and flashed that. Next I flashed Cyanogenmod 10 zip and then the Google apps zip. Then I rebooted the phone and it's hanging on the Cyanogenmod logo (lovely neon blue rotating circle).

I tried rebooting again but it's still stuck there. After I rebooted my pc did recognize the phone as an HTC Android device. I really hope I'm close. If I had any hair I would have pulled it out by now......

Update: nevermind - I think I might have bricked it. I can't get into the recovery options, and it just hangs on the white HTC splash screen with the 'This build is for development purposes only'. If anyone can help via PM it would be greatly appreciated. I'd be happy to paypal a bit for your time. (hangs head in shame)

What's important is that you can get into HBOOT. If you can do that, then you can still recover the device:

Thanks so much! I was able to restore it to stock and activate it thanks to your instructions. Not sure if I'll mess with trying again, at least any time soon. I must be worthy first. Minor thing...the Primo link in that post is dead, so maybe it just got moved somewhere else.

Full backup before you root the phone means backup for your sms, mms and call log. In this case, assumption is that your contact data is synchronized to Google contacts, if not from Google contacts, please export contacts first.

i am in the preliminary steps; You will need SDK tools for Android, Java runtime, and HTC Sync installed on your Windows computer.

java runtime and htc sync were gravy but the sdk tools for android link took me here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Howto:_Install_the_Android_SDK

i couldn't find the htc one v and i wasn't sure where to turn, lil help?

how long can this step take? it's been almost two hours on a screen w a black top hat and w yellow/orange load circle. this was after i selected install zip from sd card (it went immediately to this screen, there was no option to select a specific zip)

5C. Restart the phone into HBOOT again and select Recovery. After Recovery has launched, choose install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sdcard and select CWM-SuperSU-v0.9x.zip.

I was flashing a custom ROM. And I don't know what I did wrong but now stuck at the htc logo with the red instructions below it. I created a backup when I rooted my phone as instructed by you. BUt even when I restore it it doesnt go back to original state? Please help
Also I am not able to find a RUU. And how to check if the RUU is correct for my phone? What all to check? Radio hboot version etc?
It'll be awesome if you can provide a link that works. The previous one provided seems to be broken.

You are not bricked. If you can still get to the htc logo screen with red text then all you need i think is to select another recovery. CWM is not the one I would use. I trust twrp. Once you have it installed,do a full wipe of the device including cache,dalvik-cache,system and factory reset. Then install custom rom,then reboot to bootloader(option is in twrp reboot menu) with usb plugged in to pc and flash the boot.img to the device that came with the rom. that should get you up and running.

Hi,I'm attempting to root my HTC One V and was wondering if it matters from where I download the Android SDK tools? The link in your post is broken.

I'm not sure if you found your answer yet but after you have flashed your recovery
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
you'll then have to boot into recovery manually either by press pwr button to select bootloader and then volume down button to select recovery and pwr to boot your custom recovery.......

Or send cmd
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
I know in the cmd it say 'bootloader' but it will boot you into your recovery

I am also a noob and I have three very important questions about rooting the HTC ONE V (VIRGIN Mobile version)! It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help : )

1.) How do I make sure I don't root the NEW HTC ONE V rather than the old. I have the OLD Virgin Mobile HTC ONE V. But I am having a ton of issues with getting info for the new one. What steps must I take to make sure that my root is for the proper phone?

2.) Will I still be able to use my Virgin Mobile call service in the same way? Will I still be able to reload my minutes through their website etc? Or do I have to flash it back on to the phone?

3.) Will I have the same telephone number?

I know these are basic questions but I figured it's worth asking.

2.) Will I still be able to use my Virgin Mobile call service in the same way? Will I still be able to reload my minutes through their website etc? Or do I have to flash it back on to the phone?

3.) Will I have the same telephone number?

I know these are basic questions but I figured it's worth asking.

Whenever you say 'new' and 'old' or have read about it, they are speaking about what radio you have, for me to assist you further I need you to boot into bootloader and tell me the information that is printed on it

Yes your number will stay the same

And to reload minutes or top up all you have to do is use the browser and go to virgin mobile's website and pay there, no biggie.

Ok "How do I 'boot into bootloader' ?"

Hold the power button down for like 12 seconds and you will see the hardware buttons flash.... As soon as your phones screen turns off release the power button and hold down the volume -(down) rocker. This will boot you into bootloader. Right down what you see and post it here for further help. To boot back into your OS (Operating System) use the volume ticket to navigate with and power button to select fastboot. Once in fastboot use your volume rocker to navigate to reboot and press the power button.

Thank you CafeK - again for clear and concise directions on how to do all this. I did have some issues initially but they were computer relate and not this. Once I changed computers, everything went smoothly. Thank you again!

Laugh What version of Android??

Thank you for great instructions... Rooted my OneV successfully!
Getting rid of the bloatware with Greenify has made all the difference in the world - phone is (fairly) quick to respond to touch. Used to hang for minutes.

but...

I am trying to install an app from Play that needs android 4.1 or better, and I am getting a message "not compatible". When I go to Settings>About , I don't see an android version, what is there is "Software version" 1.10.652.6 710RD

So... what version of Android is this??
