    Wink HTC First Can't get SU or root Android 4.1.2

    I've tried everything in these (and other) forums, and I'm at wits end.

    Trying to root the phone. I'm not a linux pro... but I can't get the su binaries in the /system/bin folder. It won't let me mount the system saying 'Over-lap error'.

    AND When I run deamon, it will start, then it will say it doesn't exist. But it's in the bin folder. Not the su though. Also, I can't connect to HTC through their software to sync or unlock the bootloader. Any suggestions??

    How can I fix these?? I'm going nuts!

    HTC First (M7)

    Much Love ~sara

    Hey if you are having trouble unlocking bootloader click on the link below.
    The steps are very easy and is explained clearly so you should be able to unlock bootloader in no time.
    The link will send you to a website with a video which works for all htc devices, I used the HTC First so yes
    It works Enjoy Unlocking Bootloader!!

    Also I still haven't figured out how to root my HTC first though.

    I wiped it, and got it working.

    Problem now is the ROMs aren't working.
