I just used the official RUU from HTC to update to 4.2.2. I have and have used the all-in-one tool to unlock the bootloader, and pushed supersu.zip to my phone. but I can't figure out how to install it.

When I try to boot into recovery mode, I get a blue/neutral phone with a red triangle and red exclamation point. From here, I can only access a menu by pressing power and volume up. Nowhere in this menu can I find a way to install supersu.

Run the RUU again, http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader (follow the instructions), flash TWRP (http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/131), and then in recovery, select reboot, and there should be instructions to root. When you are rooted and want to switch to CWM, just do fastboot flash recovery recovery.img again.

Rooting isn't as hard as it seems, and you shouldn't need to use a root toolkit.

I missed loading a different recovery. I apparently was a lot more tired than I thought.
