i need some help. i just bought my htc one tonight, and of course the first thing i want to do after i turn it on is root. but i can't get fastboot to recognize it. i've reinstalled the drivers a few times, googled my heart out, and can't seem to come up with an answer.
now before a lynch mob starts, please, i'm very frustrated, and i'm fighting the urge to just throw the phone into the wall. (at this point i think it's the only thing i haven't tried).
i read somewhere about firmware and windows 8.1 (which i'm on). my phone is still on 4.1.2. i think i read 4.3 is the only one that works with windows 8.1. but there are no updates available to me.
i greatly appreciate any help here. it's such a let down to get a shiny new phone, and being stuck... once i figure out the fastboot problem i should be good to go. i want to say i had this problem a while back with my htc one x, but it was so long ago i don't remember how i fixed it. in the middle there i switched to the s3 and that rooted without a hitch.
