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

Problems installing drivers or issues with USB 3 look here (Thanks @Biofall)

PdaNet Drivers

[ADB/FB/APX Driver] Universal Naked Driver 0.72 (Thanks @1wayjonny)

Drivers that MAY help you folks using Win 8.1 Thanks @starbase64 and @eyosen

Device not recognized?
On your PC go to device manager and find your phone(usually M7WLS), right click and select properties
Select the driver tab
Select update driver
Select browse my comp
Let me pick
Look for ADB USB device or similar should be one of the first couple choices
Select MyHTC install and you should be good


Older versions of TWRP

Backup your apps and app data before HTC-Dev Unlock:
Code:
For Mac:
cd Downloads
cd Root_HTC_One_Sprint
chmod 755 *
./adb-mac backup -apk -all -f backup.ab

For Linux:
cd Downloads
chmod 755 *
cd Root_HTC_One_Sprint
./adb-linux backup -apk -all -f backup.ab
Restore your apps and app data:
Code:
For Mac:
./adb-mac restore backup.ab
For Linux:
./adb-linux restore backup.ab

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.

Nice bigdaddy! I've been bookmarking and collecting threads. You did that all in one thread. I'll have a video unlocking the bootloader very soon, and root, custom recovery, and etc.

I'll add them to my new YouTube Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE395F615E026133D
