After installing the SU zip file from recovery I do not see the icon in my apps.
I'm following the directions for a temp recovery install because I only want to root so as to be able to use a wifi tether app.
I'm using the sprint twrp image file not the at&t international etc one.
Also when on the bootloader screen, at the top it says "unlocked" and above that it says "tampered"
What am I missing?
i just picked up a t mobile htc one,and experienced this same problem. the temp recovery worked just fine on my s off international one,but not on the s on t mobile version.
i tried several times,with all available recovery images,with same result(reboot and no SU in the app drawer). rest assured,youre likely not doing anything wrong,there just seems to be a wierd glitch where fastboot cannot write to system
after i broke down and permantly installed the recovery,the superuser flash went fine.
heres what id recomend:
-boot clockwork recovery and make a backup(so your stock recovery is captured).
-boot back to bootloader.(or reboot and boot back to bootloader)
-permantly install recovery
-boot to recovery
if you want the stock recovery in place,find the stock recovery image in the nandroid you made with the temporary recovery. copy it to adb/fastboot folder. install it just as you did your custom recovery.
sorry about the confusion this has caused,when i made the guide i was unaware this would be an issue. ill add a disclaimer until its worked out.
