Post [GUIDE] How to root m8_dugl (M8 Dual SIM)

Hi

As I struggled a bit, here's how to root the HTC One M8 Dual SIM.

Disclaimer

As always, if you **** your phone up, it's not my fault. Don't blame me. Further, I will not answer any questions about this. Please help yourself.

Prerequisites

Note: Reboot your device to the bootloader (POWER+VOLUME_UP until the screen blacks out, then POWER+VOLUME_DOWN). If it reads there something different than "m8_dugl", then this guide is not for you!

Steps
  1. Download the custom recovery from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...1/post54258731 (It must be made for the m8_dugl, the 'normal' m8 recoveries from TWRP/CWM do not work (yet)!)
  2. Download "UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.02.zip" from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
  3. Copy "UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.02.zip" to you phone's internal SD
  4. Open a command prompt and navigate to your fastboot executable.
  5. Put your phone into fastboot mode: POWER+VOLUME_UP until the screen blacks out, then POWER+VOLUME_DOWN. Now you see some options. Use the volume buttons to navigate, the power button to perform the selected action. (Just select FASTBOOT and press the POWER button.)
  6. Connect you phone to the PC
  7. Type "./fastboot boot path/to/where/you/saved/m8-dual-twrp.img"
  8. --> Until now no harm has been done to you device but DEV UNLOCK. So this would also be a good time to do a BACKUP! #JustSaying
  9. Touch "Install"
  10. Select the "UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.02.zip" file
  11. Swipe to start
  12. Touch Reboot System.
  13. You should be rooted.

I did not test that yet, but this method should not prevent you from receiving OTAs. But I won't vouch for that.

Cheers,
Chris

Thank you Chris,

step by step guides are always helpful, as the answer a lot of questions about the whole procedure. So I´m at least rooted now. Let´s see if OTA´s will work, but they can also be installed via adb. I prefer having a custom recovery for installs and making backups from data, so this solution is the one I need (and always used before btw).
Thank you !

Hi
I hope you will tell us if the OTA will work.
By the way, do you know of unlocking the bootloader with HTC Dev create any issue for the future OTA?

Default Stuck in a boot loop

Hi,

thanks for the guide and it worked perectly. No problems all day long after rooting the phone.
But since this morning I am stuck in a boot loop! Already tried factory reset, that works at first, after the phone is loading some updates, it is running into a boot loop
Is there anything I can do?

Volker

Edit: Updated SuperSu, Works again...
