    Evening all,

    I rooted my DHD, but the One seems a lot trickier, with added risks.
    I am not prepared to take the risk, but I would be willing to pay for someone who is far better/experience to do it for me, if they were willing.

    Anyone know anyone ?

    cheers

    unlocking the bootloader carries little risk,and staying s on is a pretty good safety net that you cant screw up a vital part of your phone :eek:

    the only downside is that youll be left with a watermark that reads relocked to alert folks that know where to look that you have at one point unlocked it.

    going s off alows you to remove all visual traces. the process itself is relatively risk free,as long as you are cautious what you flash afterwards,since the phone wont be doing any sort of security check.

    holler if you have further questions. :)

    bit far to meet up,yes;)

    how bout this fellow? is he close to you?
    if nothing else,we can help you via the forums.clsA is on alot,and will give you good advice in a timely manner. im here daily as well,but my PC time is a bit limited these days.

    start by reading the root thread and ask whatever questions you have. it looks like alot of info,but really isnt so bad once you get started on it. there are only 3 major steps:
    1)unlock bootloader via htcdev
    2)install a recovery
    3)install superuser root files via that recovery

    I was about to add that I was willing to help, the down side of it for you would be that you'd have to trust a complete stranger with

    The QBKing77 YouTube videos & website have got it all step by step, did mine last night it took about an hour to unlock the bootloader and root and that was being VERY careful.

    The GS2 with Odin was far easier, but QBKing77 really does hold your hand so you can't go wrong

    good luck
