Default HTC One M8 Root failed - Australia

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

Suggestions?
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.
Don't say thanks hit thanks if I have helped.

Current Device:

S-OFF-Yes
Recovery:TWRP
Kernel:ElementalX
Rom:Android Revolution HD by Mike!

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?
