This is not an emergency...I am in no hurry, but I would appreciate some helpful advice.

I have a Sprint HTC One...I have S-Off which I gained by using revone. (I unnecessarily locked the bootloader after gaining S-Off.) In the months since I did this, I replaced twrp with the stock recovery to take at least two updates. (Stupid, I know!)

I am now unrooted and cannot boot into recovery.
What is the best way to regain root without htcdev?
I have tried this guide...http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2475902...but I cannot get su permission in adb shell.

Bootloader screen:
***LOCKED***
M7_WLS PVT SHIP S-OFF RH
CID-SPCS_001
HBOOT-1.55.0000
RADIO-1.00.1108
OS-3.05.651.6

Thank you for your help!

You must unlock your boot loader, then flash the recovery you want. To unlock, since you are s-off, you can do that without the htcdev approach. Just read through the q&a faq thread. The instructions are all in there.

BTW since you are S-OFF there is no need to re-lock your bootloader to take the OTA/update your firmware

Copy UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip to the phone using USB cable, then boot into custom recovery (reboot phone while holding the down volume button). Flash UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.65.zip

I thought this might work also, but flashing the recovery through fastboot always reboots to the red arrow.
I think I am going to have to go ahead and do the htcdev method...doesn't seem to be any reason not to now.

Thanks for all your help!

Hmm, so the actually flash of the recovery is successful, it just doesn't stick on your phone?
