Default About to buy a One for my dad

It's in blue for 200 .. the guy mentioned it's rooted on 4.3 and that the tool to get it off 4.3 isn't available... .. what do you guys think ? I'm versed in the note 3 area. But I don't understand htc one root .. is it stuck on 4.3 ? What do I need to do if I get it ?

What tool would that be (IOW, what is that tool called on the phones for which it is actually available)?

If you are absolutely cvonvinced that the phone is rooted, that it shows as S-Off when in bootloader mode, then I should think that you can install any of the dozens of ROMs we have here that are 4.4.2. Do you know if the phone has had installed a Recovery other than the default, such as TWRP or ClockworkMod?

Well I got the phone. He didn't flash gapps, but updated it to AOKP. I'm thinking I'd rather be on stock KK. My dad is coming from a DNA and going to AOKP is like asking him to walk on his hands and talk spanish.
