@nadav Generally speaking most HTC phones fall into the 'phone not listed category'

Root without htcdev unlock? I think not.
@mike you didn't waste any time ;)

Hey Mike, any hint as to if the logo bezel is touch sensitive?

Will we be able to use it like the capacitive buttons on the M7?

Will it be possible to root it without overwriting the existing recovery? When I get mine, all I will want is root access on the stock build after I've run the HTC unlock. Otherwise you run into problems getting OTA updates as released.

I had a similar issue with my HTC One X, but thankfully was able to get the original recovery to push back onto it after installing the SuperSU app with the custom recovery. Would rather not have to wait until there are updates out there before I can do the same thing with the M8!

As i said in other posts, I don't think that the bezel is touch sensitive... It would be a complete nonsense (but great at the same time) since the buttons are on the display itself

    Whats up guys

    I just ran through this entire process with my new AT&T variant and all seems good.
    The only thing is that the phone is not showing as rooted.
    Any ideas?
    I flashed the .zip in recovery and everything said success.

    try this

    1. go to recovery
    2. open cmd
    3. type:

    adb shell
    mount /system
    cp -p /system/xbin/su /system/xbin/daemonsu
    exit

    4. reboot device and check for root

    Mike, put in post that this will not work for Verizon based phones. You will get MID not allowed.

    Make it easier than the thread filling up.
