Unlock, custom recovery, flash root.

How many ways are there?

if you upgraded to 4.4.2 (sense 6.0) recently, as far as I know there isn't a root method out right now because the other day I tried a bunch of older ways with no luck. I was using weaksauce before but since I upgraded I haven't been able to achieve a root. If anyone knows a way please post.

1. Bootloader unlock at htcdev.
2. Flash custom recovery in fastboot.
3. Copy rooted rom to phone, flash in recovery.

There are guides for all of this available various places if you search.
