Hi,

After i've been playing with samsung phones i decided to buy an HTC One, but today i started to follow some guides in order to unlock bootloader, root and s-off my device.

My surprise when i pu the phone in bootloader mod is already unlocked and s-off, however when i put in recovery mod the screen was dark and then showed an image with a phone and a red triangle inside i presume that there is no recovery installed and the phone is not rooted.

Here's the bootloader information of my device:

***UNLOCKED***
M7_UL PVT SHIP S-OFF RH
CID-HTC__304
HBOOT-1.56.0000
RADIO-4A.23.3263.28
OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
OS-4.19.401.9
eMMC-boot 2048MB
Feb 7 2014,01:06:01.0

I need your help. What am i suppose to do now? Root my device and install a recovery?

Thx

Technically, there *is* a recovery, just a stock recovery (the red triangle is normal with the stock recovery).

With S-Off, you can do anything. Of course a good place to start would be to flash a custom recovery.

So my next step is flash a custom recovery and then root my device?

If you want to root just flash latest twrp recovery (2.6.3.3 or 2.6.3.4). enter recovery then exit and you'll be prompted to root your phone.

You'll be prompted with something similar to this:



swipe to install then when the phone reboot, go in your app drawer and complete the root installation by opening the SuperSu app.



either ''play'' or ''twrp'' methos should work with s-off.

Nice. So only have to download the last TWRP recovery and flash it. One more question how to flash a custom recovery?

Thx

boot your phone in bootloader mode
select ''fastboot'' then connect usb cable to computer
open a cmd prompt from your adb/fastboot folder

Code:
fastboot flash recovery <name_of_recovery_file>.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
make sure you download the correct recovery that match your phone variant. i.e don't use a sprint (M7_WLS) twrp recovery on your device (M7_UL)
and make sure to save the recovery .img file in your fastboot/adb folder prior to flashing it.

Yes, with s-off you can flash either a sense based custom rom or gpe custom rom. Be sure to use a rom intended for M7_U or M7_UL. Don't flash any sprint rom (WLS). Also make a Nandroid backup of your phone trough twrp before you flash a rom and save a copy on your computer.
