I recently picked up a Verizon HTC One Max and thought why don't I give rooting a shot. I did some research (not enough apparently) and was attempting to use Rumrunner. After that wouldn't work I attempted to do the CyanogenMod easy root (sorry if I have that wrong) and that did not work as well, I eventually stumbled upon having to get on to HTC Dev, so I i attempted to unlock my Boot Loader, and found that you are unable to do that Via HTC Dev.
So my question to you seasoned vets, is can anyone point me to a step by step how to for first timers on Verizon running HBOOT 2.49 and are on 4.4.2. Like I said I know I am really new, and still not sure how to go about flashing a new ROM once rooted, but I will get there in time. Thanks to any help in advance guys.
