Update Dec 2013

Rather than following all the steps in my post below.. I suggest that if you are looking to have 802W with English or European ROM, Google Apps, English blinkfeed etc.. that you follow the instructions in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...50&postcount=1
************************************************** ************************************************** *********************************************

Update 9th July 2013.
Android 4.2.2 has been released for the 802W since this thread was started. I suggest that you apply any OTA updates to your phone BEFORE rooting as you cannot apply them automatically afterwards.
you can then follow the process as outlined below to Root your phone, or alternatively you can just install the Google apps from the HTC store.
I have added at the end of this post some links to some of the most useful posts and downloads available throughout this thread.
================================================== ================================================== =========================

I have now successfully rooted my dual sim HTC ONE .. model 802W from China Unicom.. by following the steps in this posting :
http://bbs.gfan.com/forum.php?mod=vi...&extra=&page=1
but even with the help of my Chinese speaking wife, and google translate it wasn't exactly easy.. so to save you the work these are the steps I followed:

Note I am assuming that you have some knowledge and experience in rooting android phones, using ADB, fastboot etc, and you have the usb drivers installed, as well as set up your phone to allow USB debugging etc.

1) Unlock your phone go to http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader and follow the procedure there .
2) download and unzip the zip file which contains clockwork mod recovery image, SuperSU.zip and the google apps installer from http://rapidshare.com/files/88532145...02W%20Root.zip
3) Switch off the phone and boot it into Bootloader mode. Coonect the phone to your computer with usb cable.
4) Open a command window in the folder where the cwm802w.img file is placed. Now type the following
fastboot flash recovery cwm802w.img
This will then flash Clockwork mod to your phone.
5) copy the SuperSU and Google apps zip files to your EXternal SD card
Reboot into clockwork mod recovery
And first flash the superSUxxxxx.img file from your external SD card, and then flash the google apps .img file.
Voila!..

Be aware of others want to use this method, it is not root your phone only but is to flash a custom rom which has root authority. This rom has all google app and remove 3 dot menu mod included.

If you want to keep the original rom but just want to root you shall use the method in first post.

I guess it isnt suitable for your 802tT otherwise they would probably say it is for all Chinese versions of 802w/t/d
probably suggest you research the website where I got this recovery from.. google translate can help a little bit!
here is the HTC one forum on the website http://bbs.gfan.com/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=1257

I just did some more research on that website and cannot see any mention on availability of a recovery for the China mobile 802T version.

I suspect that you wont be able to use that version in the US or outside China for 3G data as that uses TD-SCDMA which hasnt been widely adopted by any network operators outside china?

Yeah, I'm afraid you're right, but since I live in China it's ok. I only need to get it more international since I can't read Chinese.
So, do you think your recovery could work for me?

Thx
