HTC 10 Verizon root thread

Thread Deleted Email Thread
This will be a place to discuss and collaborate on any progress towards a root, bootloader unlock, s-off, or any combination of the such for the Verizon HTC 10. I will regularly update this thread with any progress and links to tools required.

What we know
  • Verizon removed the "Enable oem unlock" option from the developer settings
  • Using htcdev was forbidden by verizon which makes us require something such as SuperCID

What we have
We have We don't have

Root
Bootloader Unlock
S-Off
@jcase and @beaups has pulled of complete s-off with the vzw HTC 10 via Sunshine!

Current method
The current method of getting s-off and root is by @jcase and @beaups sunshine app at http://theroot.ninja/download.html
NOTE: when sunshine asks, turn the screen on and off or it won't work

Notes requested by @jcase

*Do NOT go s-on or relock, as you will have to use Sunshine again

*Taking the OTAs as they come out is your choice and yours alone. If you are already s-off, meaning you sent your phone to @jcase, then you can take OTAs with no risk. S-Off cannot be undone unless you manually do so, so no ota will remove it .
If you are not s-off yet, the release version and the first and only ota works so far. If you take future OTAs without s-off, you run the risk that @jcase's method may be patched.

*The new update has patched Sunshine, but you can still downgrade and root following this guide. https://forum.xda-developers.com/ver...n-htc-t3531996

I'm excited for this. Is there a bounty or anything?

No bounty that I've seen has been started yet, but if someone wants to start one it would probably encourage the devs to find a creative way to get temproot. If we get temproot, sunshine will hopefully be easy to make work on vzw, which will give us s off, then supercid, then unlock.

Keeping my fingers crossed. Probably won't happen though unless it's with a Java card like on the One m9. But after all, it'd only been out on Verizon for a few days. We shall see

Get a bounty started, or ask someone to, and I'm sure @jcase or someone similar will find a creative way to pull it off.

Hopefully so. I think jcase already has it done for the other variants. I feel like Verizon is always the last because of extra steps. It may not happen though since they like to lock their devices down.
