    i rooted mine the first day i got it lol. Once you unlock the bootloader through HTC Dev its pretty easy after that. I used the HTC_ONE_M7 All-in-one kit v1.2 on mine.

    thinking of trying out the leaked 4.3.3 for our device!

    i personally am not a fan of toolkits. if something goes wrong that you need to use adb/fastboot to fix,youll have no idea how to do so and a toolkit may not come to your rescue :eek:

    id recomend following a guide to manually unlock the bootloader and flash a recovery. as was said,its not a real complicated process.

    just my 2 cents :)

    methods vary by phone of course, but from personal experience that toolkit worked without a hitch once the htc dev part is completed. Any roms anyone reccomends??

    does that Cleanrom work for the t-mobile variant?

    @scotty I usually recommend those types of things for new-b's or those who dont wanna learn the adb/fastboot commands.

    IMO if its not worth a bit of work,its prolly not worth having. the prollem is that folks unevitabley will flash something that bootloops,hangs,or some has other issue,and adb/fastboot may be required for the fix. in these cases a toolkit offers little to no support,and folks are forced to learn adb/fastboot in a panic,with a non working phone :eek:

    ive been up till all hours if the morning helping these folks out of their various predicaments,and had a few become so fustrated they want to mail me their phone to fix,or just turn it in on insurance and get a new one.

    manually unlocking and installing a recovery gives folks basic skills and vocabulary to recieve advice from seasoned users and fix their devices if something pops up they cant handle.

    i.e.,im all for teaching a man to fish,rather than just throwing him part of the catch.

    again,just my 2 cents :)
