WeakSauce and Firewater have been patched on the latest HTC builds, the current solution is SunShine http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2792487



WeakSauce is an exploit for some HTC devices. It will not work on all HTC devices, if it crashes or doesn't make su available, then it isn't compatible at this time, and I have no interest in adding compatibilitiy. At the time of release, I confirmed that it was compatible with the HTC One m7 & m7 on Verizon. Those are the only two officially supported devices. Yes it will work on other phones, and is worth a try. It will also crash on many, and some it will appear to work and won't. I am not fixing this at this time.

Since this app is just so easy to use, and I am tired of off topic posts, I am closing the thread. If you can not figure out how to use it, ask elsewhere.

This app may not be redistributed, integrated in a toolkit or script, or sold in any way.


It gains root, mounts a new xbin containing busybox, and su. While it is designed for the Verizon HTC One m7 and m8, it will work on other HTC devices as well. It is a crapshoot depending on both model, and sometimes on firmware version. This exploit will re-root your device each boot. You only have write access to /system/xbin with this exploit.

As the op says it is a crapshoot and mainly Verizon. It you want to post about how it doesn't work, then at least post what model and firmware so the thread doesn't get flooded with me too posts

I'm on stock verizon, ran this app, now I'm rooted. Easy as eating pie, titanium backup really slows this beast down tho. Mad props dude.

kinda weird all these toolboxes worked before, now its just sunshine pay unlock, rumrunner no longer is functional, squabbis don't seem to work, 2.0 or 1.1 and pwn stars uses mainly htcdev for the bootloader but blocks the Verizon variant possibly others. I give up its down the road with the htc max nexus 6p and the NRT works the best ive seen from a dev. All you guys are some seriously smart people and much respect.
