Hey bud, I just finished creating a flash zip for supersu 1.69 and busybox 1.21.1. Just go to this link "click me - I'm a link"
to get the download. Its in the HTC One Sv forum but my girl has the same phone as you because I was the one who gave it to her. Root works and I also provide source code so anyone can see what exactly it is doing before they even decide to use it. All you need to do is download a custom recovery for your phone then go into fastboot and boot the custom recovery using the command
fastboot boot customrecovery.img
The name of the image will be whatever you name it. I recommend customrecovery.img.
You want to boot it vice flashing so you can do a complete backup of your device. Afterwards, go ahead and flash the customrecovery:
fastboot flash recovery customrecovery.img
The initial backup will even backup and preserve your original stock recovery.img. You need the custom recovery in order to flash the zip from your sdcard.
Anyways, I am familiar with your phone so if you need help just pm me.
