Default Issues with Root and system access on a Dev-Ed device.

I have a developer's edition HTC One running stock 4.4.2.

This also means I have an unlocked bootloader but not S-Off.

I flashed the latest build of TWRP over stock recovery using fastboot, and flashed the Superuser zip through it. Although super user is installed and root access is enabled, every time I try to write to system (e.g. installing Busybox) the phone just crashes and reboots. Changes made don't seem to stick either. Same results with a Superuser + Busybox zip flash.

Do I need S-Off or is this a one off problem?

HTC One, 4.4.2, completely stock with TWRP
One does not simply have a signature that actually makes sense.

Sony Ericsson W300i ----> HTC TyTn II ----> HTC Desire HD ----> HTC One Developer Edition

Have you tried changing the kernel, the stock kernel is write protected, I use elementalx myself on dev edition stock Rom
