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.
