Hi there,

I have just tried to root my HTC one, and I am now stuck in the boot loader screen and it is showing *Tampered* at the top.

Can someone please advise me, or point in the direction of what I need to do now?

Thanks.

If it says tampered it should say unlocked right below it.... go to this site and follow the instructions to get full root. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2699065

Once you have unlocked your bootloader then it will show you tampered.
Download a custom recovery (I prefer TWRP) and flash it via fastboot.
Then download @Chainfire Supersu flashable zip from his site and flash it in recovery.
You have rooted your phone.

Ater placing my device into fastboot mode, I have tried flashing my downloaded TWRP file to my HTC One in Terminal using these instructions:

Now let's flash your downloaded TWRP file to your HTC One. Type one of the following commands into your terminal window, depending on which file you downloaded above.

For the International editions, type:

fastboot flash recovery Desktop/openrecovery-twrp-2.7.0.2-m8.img


However I get the following error:

command not found

any help would be most appreciated.

Did you setup your mac to use adb / fastboot commands?

So I am starting to move forward :

I have followed the instructions to install philz_touch_6.25.5-m8.img by flashing it to my HTC where I get the setup screen for philz_touch_6.25.5-m8.img. I cleared the cache and I then installed the UPDATE-SuperSU-vx.xx.zip using the install zip from sdcard and then rebooted the HTC.

Unfortunately I have come back to the bootloader screen.

For what the instructions say it should be working now, but it does not seem to be?

Now it seems that whatever I try I cant seem to get past the bootloader....

And when I power down from the bootloader, It shuts down for a few minutes and then boots back into the bootloader.

Not sure what to do now?
