    I am trying to root my phone so that I can use link2sd and make more room on my phone by making a second partition on my SD card to do this I have to unlock or atleast S-Off. I have to make it permanently rooted.  There is no information  about the HTC Desire 625 (android 5.1). Please contact me a.s.a.p (910)590-6925 or jessemarks351@gmail.com

    If there is a custom recovery for this phone (don't use one built for a different model!) then you can unlock the bootloader, flash the recovery, then use that to flash a superuser package. HTC provide a bootloader unlocking tool at HTCdev.com (of course some US carriers exclude their phones from it).

    S-Off is not needed for what you want to do.

    When I go to HTC dtv.com to unlock the bootloader  it does not have the option for the  625 but I has a 'HTC Desire' option witn no numbers after it.

    HTC Desire with no numbers will be the A8181, codename Bravo, i.e. the first "Desire" HTC released (back when Desire was the flagship range rather than midrange/budget). That definitely isn't what you want: with that device you had to flash a particular software version for the bootloader unlock to work (the phone is older than the bootloader unlocking tool), and that's what you'll get if you choose that one. If you want to unlock the bootloader (be warned: this will wipe the device, so back up first) then choose "All Other Supported Models" from the list of options would be my guess.

    There is an XDA thread here where people seem to be saying that they were able to use a TWRP built for the Desire 626s. At your own risk if you try that though, since in general it is not safe to use a recovery built for a different device - if these people have succeeded it implies that the two models are identical in the way they organise their storage.

    I'm slightly surprised none of those rooting apps work on an Android 5.1 device (though I'm not a huge fan of them personally).

    It gives me some instructions that I don't understand on how to do an upload.  It says to find the ROM version in the table below and click on the RUU to download it I don't know where to find them

    Did you click on the "HTC Desire" link? That's where I'd expect it to tell you to choose an RUU, and isn't what you want.

    Sorry, going offline now because I'm European and it's midnight.
