Alright so, I returned my HTC One into HTC for repair and will be receiving my replacement on Monday. I haven't unlocked the bootloader/rooted/picked a recovery since the first month I bought it in July 2013. Is there any new methods or recommended methods to do all of this now?

I remember before I sent my device in, I was using old software I think. I never updated the "hboot", "radio", "firmware", etc so I'm hoping I can do all of that this time around so my HTC One preforms to the best of it's capabilities. If that's necessary anyway.

There's SO many guides on XDA I just don't know which is the general "best" option nowadays. Can someone link me to the newer versions or even the old ones if they are what's still best? As well as the better recovery? Is it still TWRP?

Also, I hear that if you run OTA updates with a new HTC One and bring it up to date, it makes it harder to go through the process? Is that true?

With the latest hboot , I believe 1.57 it's difficult to achieve s-off, but other then that everything has remained the same. As far as recovery goes, some roms specifically require TWRP but the 2.7 series causes some issues so most people are sticking with 2.6.

What is the difference between 1.54 and 1.57 hboot? Well, I think I was using 1.54 on my phone. Or was it 1.44? Whichever. What's the difference between hboots?

Also, what about the root program to use? I know Omni requires SuperSU, but I'm used to Superuser. Which should I pick? Does everything work with SuperSU or?

Either will work fine.
