HTL22 4.4.2: rooted
Follow up for me:
I got my HTL22 back from AU after it went to HTC for a camera module replacement (bye bye to purple haze). They also replaced back plate, as is the case with many people who send it back. That's all fine. It came back with 4.4.2.
So, I bit the bullet and tried Sunshine: perfect (25 bucks in their bank - holy crap those guys must be able to retire now! Good for them, though. Jcase was really helpful on the IRC, too). Unlocked and s-off in no time. I then flashed TWRP 188.8.131.52 (look for openrecovery-twrp-184.108.40.206-m7wlj). System reboot, swiped for root, then installed SU via TWRP at the end.... voila. One rooted 4.4.2 au HTC One.
I also solved the annoying emoji issue: AU in their "wisdom" had HTC in the KitKat update for Japan put in a file called AUemoji which seemed to take precedence over the Google emoji that I enjoyed in Hangouts (it was like the emoji tray in Hangouts was half Google, half the boring Unicode ones). Anyway, renamed that file to 'AUemojiOLD.ttf' or something, and that's all sweet, too.
Still trying to work out how my phone with no apps installed by me yet can go down 20% overnight, but hope I can fix that annoyance with a few CPU tweaks, etc.
