Default [Tutorial][Resource][Root]Unlock-Recovery-SuperSU for HTC One(M7)-Sprint-m7wls

Sup XDA
I'm not a Dev so this is my contribution to the HTC One-Sprint community.

This is a DIY root method. By doing it yourself you will learn some basic knowledge about using cmd windows,using ADB,using fastboot.
This is also the same method used in my Guide for the HTC Evo 4G LTE.

Unlock your bootloader - www.htcdev.com Follow the instructions at HtcDev to unlock your bootloader.

Flash TWRP-CWM-PhilZ_Touch Recovery - (refer to the Read Me First Text on how to fastboot flash TWRP-CWM-PhilZ_Touch Recovery)

Flash a Superuser app of your choosing - (refer to the Read Me First Text on how to flash SuperSU)


<---- If this guide helped you buy me a coffee


Using this method will NOT give you S-OFF it will help you unlock your bootloader(HTC-DEV) flash a custom recovery(TWRP or CWM) and install the Superuser app of your choice.

What's included:
Read Me Text (instructions,ADB commands, and whatnot)
ADB Tool

The rooting method was flawless and very easy. Thank you very much for that. Now I would like to ask what to expect next. Since I didn't install a new rom after rooting and I'm still on stock what should I do if an OTA update comes out? Is it safe to take the update?

Thanks for the kind words I have been told to never take an OTA while rooted.
