    When you say put superSU in to the phone's SD card, do you mean in to the phone's internal memory folder? This phone doesn't support SD cards. The only "card" I can put in to it is SIM card. Sorry if that is a dumb question; I just want to be sure I'm doing all this properly.

    Yup,place the supersu file on the phones internal storage. Sorry the "sd card" reference caused some confusion.

    I'm pretty much in the first step, I've rooted quite a few phones and pretty sure I've gotten everything right. When I type "adb devices" into my prompt it's just saying "List of devices attached", but no serial number. Can someone let me know what I"m doing wrong?

    Have you enabled USB debugging? You'll need to go tap the build number in settings/about phone/software information several times for the developer options menu to appear. You can then check USB debugging.

    If you're on windows 8 or newer,you may need different drivers

    Hi guys, me again. A year ago or so you walked me through the HTC one verizon s-off, root, etc. and I have really liked CM10. I'm trying to update my rom to CM 11 from an older CM 10 because I lost Wifi and can't get it back. I'm back to my original Sense and the wifi is fine. From sense, I reboot to recovery, say install zip and run into an error "Can't install this package on top of incompatible data. Please try another package or run a factory reset." Not sure what to do. Will I lose everything with a factory reset? Do I need to just wipe the cache and or the davlik thing? I'm afraid I'll screw things up if I do the wrong thing here...

    sounds like cm knows that you will have prollems trying to install 11 over 10 without doing a data wipe.

    my advice would be to make a nandroid,then perform the factory reset,then install cm11 as you intended. cm11 is nice- i run it on my m7 and my gf's DNA

    I am getting this response.

    Error Code: 172.
    Error Reason: CID Not Allowed (MID not exist in Model Rule)

    I can't figure out what to do next. I read somewhere I need sunshine, but this machine isn't rooted, so I am not sure that will work.

    Can you tell us exactly how you tried to install the recovery (the exact command and the messages it produced), and precisely which recovery image you used (a link to the page you downloaded it from would be ideal). Which model of M7 would be helpful as well (e.g. dual SIM models are different from the regular ones, and Sprint or Verizon handsets are different from GSM ones).

    Tampered/unlocked would be normal in this case.

    if you used the versions from this thread,they are only for single sim versions. youll need to use a recovery designed for 802x from this thread:

    For questions about a specific ROM the best is to ask in the ROM's thread. Or, for threads hosted at XDA, to search before asking (XDA are very keen on this, as you'll find out the hard way if you don't!).

    However, in the case of ViperOne I'm pretty sure that it doesn't support dual SIM devices.

    Hi all

    Quite a newbie to rooting, I've never done it before, so forgive me if I seem naive. I've followed the instructions and got as far as (3) where I'm ready to flash the superuser files. However, the TWRP touch screen is not working when I boot into Recovery Mode, and I am nto able to do any actions from the recovery screen, other than using power button to restart the phone. It may be the same issue as is reported in http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2126626 (apparently an HTC OTA update may have installed a kernel that doesn't allow custom ROMs to use touchscreen), but I'm not seeing a definitive solution to the issue.

    My phone is HTC One M7_UL, with S-ON, but I'm happy to go to S-OFF if that's an option. It's HBOOT 1.54. Any suggestions on the best way forward gratefully received.

    Further to the above, I have solved this problem. I just needed to use the latest version of TWRP (2.8.xxxxxx) rather than 2.5.xxxxx and the touchscreen worked. All now successfully rooted. Thanks.

    I have a rooted M7 that I haven't used in over a year. What do I need to do to update it? I had a buddy originally root it for me about 3 years ago (stocked-w-goodies? rootkit). It works fine and is still rooted. I just didn't know if I needed to do anything to it to use it again? I fell in the lake with a new LG G4 which still works, but is getting flaky. Thanks.

    Just to use it you don't need to do anything other than put your SIM in it (unless you are on a CDMA network and need the carrier to reactivate it).

    If you want to update it then the first question is what Android version is it running? If it's 5.0.2 then you already have the latest - this is a 3 year old phone and isn't getting any more updates.

    Otherwise your options are to unroot it for official updates or install a newer custom ROM. But before going into that it's best to work out whether you actually need/want to do any of that.

    Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it. I will probably end up using this phone again for a year and wanted to make sure that whatever needed to be updated was current. It has Android 4.3. Software says Stock w Goodies One 2.10, HTC SDK API level 5.45. I will probably need to call Sprint to reactivate it with the SIM out of the LG G4. Thanks again for the help.

    OK, I don't know what "Stock w Goodies" means in the software info, but it sounds like your friend did more than just root it. There's no reason that won't just work though, unless there is some feature of a later software version that you want.

    If there is then as I say, there are options. The important thing to remember if you decide that a custom ROM is the way to go (so remaining rooted and installing custom software) is that you'll need to make sure you use software that's intended for the Sprint HTC One, since they differ from the general GSM One and so software intended for the more common model may not work for yours. And of course to back up all your data before attempting any sort of update!

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will search for a custom ROM for the Sprint HTC One M7.
