I had my Htc One M8 imported from Hong Kong and I was wondering whether or not the process of rooting it would be the same as the international version. Because it has different hardware, I fear that rooting my phone as if it were an international model would brick it. Question(s): How do I root my phone? Is it any different from rooting an M8 clocked at 2.3 ghz? Is my model "rootable"?
