I want to install a custon kernel on my One and root it. but want to keep my stock base, with all my apps, messages, settings, etc.. don;t want to full wipe it like on htcdev.com.
Is there a way of doing it without wipe?? if yes. which one. thanks

It's not possible
Verizon phones use a temp-root method to get s-off and unlock and it also wipes the phone as I recall.

If you're working with the 2013 HTC One (M7), WeakSauce is a suitable root method for use with firewater, which can be used to get S-OFF. Once the phone is set to S-OFF, you have the option of installing a custom recovery and rooting with a more traditional method. You're free to uninstall WeakSauce after the phone has been permanently rooted

If you're on 4.2.2 there's rumrunner. If you're on 4.3 there's firewater. If you're on 4.4.2 you'll have to wait a bit.
