Hi guys,

I sue HTC phones heavily in our software development and since we live in South East Asia the One S here is running exclusively on S3 chips (The yalso downgraded data speed to 14.4 Mbps), I have read on another thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1717650 that things can get pretty dicey if you use S4 ROMs and images for rooting.

I have a S3 with me now and want it rooted pretty badly, I'm wondering if there is a way I can help any of you guys make this possible?

Any one confirmed whether this one works to root with the HTC ONe S S3 processor?

Hi,

I want to move this forward by getting the Boot.imb out of my phone so someone can compare it with the S4 boot.img, problem is all the methods for getting boot.img require that you root the phone first which is kinda egg & chicken conundrum.

Anyone can help me with getting the Boot.img out of my phone? azzledazzle?
