I can install and rut it, but it won't recognize my HTC One. It keeps giving the same message about how I need
to connect my HTC One.
There are workarounds to acces the files (like connecting via WiFi through an IP-address or use the HTC software), but I think it's not possible to root the phone without direct acces to the files as with AFT, or is it?
I wanna make sure I can run the script before I brick my phone.
Can any of you guys confirm I can run the script without AFT?

Follow these instructions to set up fastboot and adb
create an account and choose bootloader unlock option. Choose All other Supported Devices in the dropdown list
follow the instructions to successfully bootloader unlock ur device. This will delete ur data, so make a backup
Once ur successfully bootloader unlocked, quote me and post it. Ill tell u how to continue
