Default Help installing Superuser

Hi, I'm trying to root my One and I followed the directions laid out in the guide by Scotty85 step by step however, after flashing the superuser zip file when I go to reboot I get a message that says the phone is not rooted. In the same message it asks if I would like to install Super user in order to root?

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?

Thanks

You can try and install it through goo manager which had worked before but that didn't work for me. I had install it through fast boot which gave me SU function and then after that everything worked.

There's always the possibility of a bad download.

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
-reboot
-boot to recovery
-flash superuser
-reboot

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.
