I really agree with you on this being and looking better than the Nexus 5X, thanks for Root.

Hey Jcase thank u for this nice thread..

My question is my device is 1.10.401.7 and i need to root it by your thread so :

-First i need to unkock the bootloader
- download the supersu or superuser and reboot "adb reboot download" and get acces to option and then flash the su zip ?

I'm right ?

If its a non ATT A09, then I will need to whip together an image for your device. Let me know if it isn't and I can

For use Sprint users , is there anything we can do to help along with a Sprint version of this?

Just got the A9 today. . . I did not think about how new it was , and was all kinds of looking forward to getting rooted. :)

See "[Requesting Model/Carrier/Firmware Support]" in the op

Thank you so much! Keep up the awesome work!

PM me then, I will need to build a boot.img for sprint
I also have Sprint. I should be able to flash the "recovery" image (not the boot) that you provided and then backup the boot partition from recovery correct?

Also, can your boot image (the one you would make for Sprint) work WITH encryption? I just spent the entire weekend setting up my device and do NOT want to reset to factory.

    Rooting should be easier now, since there's a new flashable zip of SuperSU (2.61) that automatically patches and roots the boot.img.

    So you just have to 1) unlock, 2) flash TWRP, 3) Format Data, 4) reboot recovery and 5) flash the zip. Reboot and you're rooted!

    P.S. I'm not providing a link to it - search on the site works perfectly fine ;)

    FYI

    I posted an updated TWRP at the link in the OP that fixes the USB connection issues. Besides decryption (which isn't supported in TWRP because HTC uses proprietary encryption), TWRP should now be working 100%. I'll be submitting my device files soon for official inclusion, and probably starting an official TWRP thread as well.

    Real quick

    Until which time @Dees_Troy can build an "official" one, here's the TWRP I just built with working touch. Just don't disable MTP or you'll have to reboot recovery to get USB connection back (still working on that).
