    Default How to ROOT HTC ONE Official Android 4.3 ?

    Hi, i've updated my HTC One , international version, to Android 4.3 last week, via OTA Update. Now i want to unlock the bootloader and root it. Since all the tutorials on the internet are for versions lower that 4.3, i don't know if the process is working using the same software and drivers. So far i couldn't find an tutorial explaining how to do this on the officially released android 4.3 version. Do you know what are the diferences, and if possible, which software i have to use ? Thanks !

    I unlocked the bootloader and rooted my One after the 4.3 upgrade with the current instructions. No issues at all. Been rooted for a few weeks now and enjoying the freedom.

    Yep. No problem. Just have to see if everything works as it should. I have to Edit some code and ensure the toolkit isn't buggy.

    Oh yeah. I thoroughly test the toolkit. I don't want anyone to mess up their phone.

    Yup. Also working on a website to host stuff. It's also going to be a blog/ review website. Also might put up tutorials on how I made the toolkit and publish the code I used. I have plans...

    Yup. When I get it up and running, would you like to take for a spin?

    Ok I will let you know when the website is up and running as well as when the toolkit will be updated. It will soon exit beta. I also plan on doing a toolkit for other HTC phones and eventually spread into other brands. I will look forward to your input!

    srry, but ive been researching the samething for the past 7hrs and I have realized that it is not possible to s-off an android 4.3 HTC One because we updated the firmware from HBoot 1.54 to 1.55, rumrunner has just updated to work with 1.54, its going to be a while before its ready for 1.55, but if you by a Miricle find a way to do so without using HTC Dev, then please contact me

    Could someone put here, or give me a link with instructions for rooting HTC One Android 4.3 ?? ghostryder12 said that he was able to root his HTC One 4.3 with current instructions, but i don't know where to choose, because there are many instructions on the Internet. Thanks !

    I did mine using this guy's instructions. He did a video and it's also written. http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23252070760973271
    Edit:
    Plus, you can follow links he has where he got his instructions. I watched the video several times before jumping in. Now his video was on a One with 4.1 but it doesn't matter. It's the method that you need.

    ghostryder12, your link doesn't work (Unable to connect - Mozilla Firefox ViperOne_3.5.0.zip | by Turge for One). I'll try the tutorial that you've posted in your 2nd post, but i have a question: what version of TWRP have u used for rooting 4.3 ? I'm asking this because some guys said that using the last version (v. 2.6.3.3) causes the touchscreen to freeze, so they were stuck right after that. Should i use the first version (2.5.0.0) ??

    EDIT: I've succesfully rooted my HTC One using this tutorial (http://qbking77.com/development/how-...al-sprint-att/). The only differences were SuperSU and TWRP versions, i had to install the latest versions, because i have android 4.3. Thanks guys for your support. This topic can be closed now.

    That's the same hboot I have. Not sure what the issue might be, is your hboot unlocked?
