Default [Q] Where to copy superSU zipfile

Hi all,

I am trying to root an HTC One; I'm following the instruction at htconeroot.com.

For some reason, I am getting stuck at the stage at which I am supposed to install CWM SuperSU.

I have the Android app QuickSSHD installed on my phone.

Using scp on my Linux laptop (Linux Mint 16), I transfer the SuperSU zip file to the phone, copying it to /sdcard/.

If I browse the phone using ES FIle Manager app, I can verify the zip file is there, along with the various other subdirectories under /sdcard/

However, when I reboot and go to the bootloader, click on Install, and then go to /sdcard/, I see nothing. No zipfile, no subdirs. I am wondering whether /sdcard/ is in fact mounted; it would seem not.

I have tried copying the SuperSU zipfile to the root directory of the phone, but that isn't possible; I don't seem to have write permissions.

From the instructions:
Quote:
Sign in through the setup process then copy the CWM-SuperSU-v1.30.zip file in HTCOneRoot folder to anywhere on your HTC One’s internal storage.
However, it isn't clear to me precisely how I am supposed to do this -- or where it should go.

Am I missing something here?

Are you S-Off and unlocked? If that's the case, I believe there's a flashable zip (and instructional videos) in the TWRP thread. If you're not S-Off and unlocked yet, you'll want to look here:

You'll use the "temp root" method, but I believe you'll still have to be on 4.3 for it to work.

Thanks for moving this thread to the right place. Now, just to confirm: I have an HTC ONE which is unlocked; I bought it without a plan.

I see that sub-directory on my Nexus tablet, so I know what you are referring to, but I don't see it on the ONE.

Thanks, I am just getting up to speed here with the terminology. I've unlocked the booloader, but the phone is still S-ON.I'll try to get that sorted out now.

OK, I have used revone to set S-OFF

I have also installed, or at least run temproot.Yes, I see the # prompt.

But when I reboot and go into TWRP, it still can't see anything in /sdcard

It also says that the device does not appear to rooted.

Any thoughts on how best to move forward here?

I would like to be able to:
  1. Install Kitkat
  2. Deinstall some HTC cruft
Thanks

So your PC can see your device in fastboot??? and your S-off and unlocked bootloader???

What is your end game do you want to be on the new stock 4.4.2 rooted or are you going to a Custom Rom???
