I know this is a bit late, but i needed it this afternoon and didn't have it, I am not good at guides but ill do my best, so here goes nothing.

use sunshine obviously! this will get you s-off and unlocked bootloader for any htc 10 version! (Google it if you dont know what it is!)

now that you have s-off how do you install a recovery and gain root...

boot to download mode

turn off your phone then hold volume down and power for a few seconds
once in download mode get your CID, MID, and system version and write them down somewhere, then reboot the phone to system

create a text file named "android-info.txt"
type the following into the txt file replacing the us unlocked oreo info with your own
Code:
modelid: 2PS650000
cidnum: BS_US001
mainver: 3.16.617.2
hbootpreupdate: 1
nohardreset: 1
save the file.

download the latest TWRP img and rename it to "recovery.img"

move recovery.img and android-info.txt to the same folder select them both and add them to a zip folder named "2PS6IMG.zip"

copy the zip you just created directly to the root of your sd card

boot back into download mode using the steps you followed earlier , you should be prompted to flash the zip you just made, flash it, if everything went well you should now have twrp recovery installed.

boot back up, download superSU, or other root apps or ROMS of your choice

boot into recovery, flash away... proffit!

Hey I had a question. Does it work if you have no root on nougat/oreo firmware? Because I heard you need root on nougat firmware for sunshine to work.

Sorry can't help much. I had bootloader unlocked already so I flashed MaximusHD with root and went S off through that. There are a couple of threads regarding downgrading firmware. Try going to MM firmware and go S Off from there. I think the method works on S on devices.
