    Default HTC One: Can someone show me how to root or whatever?

    Hey i tried rooting,flashing etc an i get confused in what to do an what steps to do. I read someone say you can flash or something to try out a rom an if you dont like it you can go back to how your One was without a hassle or screw ups. Id like to try out a google edition rom so i can be simple an sleek an not so much clutter in the camera software like Sense has.

    Is there a way to try it out?

    Rooting voids your warranty. Be aware of that. First step is to unlock your bootloader. Second is to flash a recovery. Third, and final step is to flash SuperSU to gain root access.

    I would use the CyanogenMod installer. Go to CyanogenMod | Downloads and download the installer. You will want to unlock your bootloader first (htcdev.com), because for my Sprint variant, the installer would not work until I did so. After you install CM from the installer, it is rooted, has a custom recovery, and is ready for more roms by using ClockWorkMod. This is the easiest and safest method to root, ROM, and hack your HTC One.

    I have a toolkit that can do all of this, but I want him to do it manually to learn the commands...

    You can always revert to sense if you don't like stock ROMs

    Hi! I think you should of posted here: Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com


    That's the section for the Note 8!

    As for rooting from the device itself, I believe it is not possible without a custom recovery.

    If you mean without a computer then you might be out of luck. I have seen methods that claim to work through the browser on your tablet, but for the most part they don't work as advertised.
    Definitely post in the Note 8.0 forums though, maybe someone knows of a way
