I'm going to say this and then I'm going to drop it because we're all entitled to our opinions and I truly respect everyone's right to have a different one than me but Sunshine app devs are NOT the bad guys here! HTC and other phone manufactures ARE! They are the ones who lock down their nand storage partitions without a stock easy way of getting into them. They have their own reasons for that but let's not get it twisted.

It's like a car manufacture that won't let you look under the hood of your own car. One guy comes along and says I can stick my screwdriver between the hood and the latch and jimmy your hood open for free but you might need some touch up paint after I'm done and another guy(Sunshine app) saying I have your model specific tool that allows your own in car hood release to work the way all other car hood latches work and it's permanent but will cost you $25! I know which way I'm going but some people need free and I respect that . Just don't be mad that you've got touch up paint and I don't.

This particular exploit is hard. The way I know that is these guys keep "begging" for competition from the indignant seats and it's crickets every time! Keep it up and we're going to end up like some other phone manufacturers customers that have zero options for S off and there are some. Then $25 will seem like nothing because that's what we will have, NOTHING!

Also, with text not speech this post could be read as being "mad" with all the exclamation points but it's absolutely not. It's more like" exasperated". Everything on the internet is not free. Thank you Sunshine devs for giving me a choice. That's all this is is an option.

You hit the nail on the head thoctor. $25 is a bargain for what Sunshine does. I often see people complain about having to pay the $25 (it's too expensive, it should be free, etc.). Did they ever consider the amount of time that Beaups, JCase and crew (if any) put in to this exploit? Obviously it's not very easy to accomplish because no one else is doing it. Maybe instead of complaining, they should try writing their own exploit. I myself am on a fixed income and have purchased Sunshine for 2 different phones, and when I get my next HTC One, I'll purchase Sunshine again. I appreciate the fact that Beaups and JCase are generous enough to share their hard work with us.

I'm done with my soapbox.

Thanks Beaups and JCase for keeping our HTC One M7 relevant.

Frank

Edit: For anyone that would like to root, s-off and unlock the HTC One M7 without a computer, just send me a PM and I'll tell you what tools I used to accomplish this.

I paid, sunshine had hiccups with 626s, update came and still no dice. Now 626s support has been put on hold and I'm not worried. These guys work hard to do what they do. I support them and stand behind sunshine, regardless that my s-off dreams have been put on hold. The 626s is a stubborn trick! In the end I know that should this 626 nut not crack, Jcase and Beaups will give my money back. Don't worry guys, I'm in no rush.

Just to report - success with HTC M8 running ARDH 51.0 on 4.16.401.10 firmware.
Had a scary moment when I got a call during the first long test, but it coped.
However it did say "follow the prompts after the reboot" but there weren't any; the phone just came up to the home screen as normal. I ran the app again and it finished the process.

Submit a support ticket at http://therootninja.zendesk.com tell us what phone, and how you paid so we can find diagnostic logs for your phone.

Changelog is on the download page. Turbo support is solid.

I'd be more than happy to pay 25 for a Verizon m9 exploit.

I just had to replace my M8 via Asurian. Unfortunately, it comes with 5.0.1 pre-installed. What is the latest news on sunshine updates for the HTC One M8?
