    Default Verizon HTC One m7 4.4.2 , sense 6 update caused *root failure* on weaksauce

    Hey everyone, I have a Verizon HTC one m7 running 4.4.2 and just recently, HTC sense 6. When I had sense 5.5 I had my phone rooted and was enjoying messing around with the hidden side of android. I used weaksauce to root and used superSU. It all worked first try before but now that my phone updated to sense 6 I get root failure in weaksauce. I've tried to uninstall both weaksauce and supersu and reinstall both and all different combinations of things to get root back on my phone but nothing is working. I'm guessing the update caused this since it was all good before so if anyone could let me know anything at all about this or possibly how to fix this or if they also have this problem or if there is an alternate way to root my phone and enjoy root access and all that it encompasses, please let me know here. Thank you for your time and help ( I hope )
    -Travis

    I knew I shouldn't have ran the update. Even though I froze many of the crapware my phone was still laggy. I updated hoping that would fix things and now weaksuace does not work. So no, you are not alone.

    Personally I like sense 6 ALOT more than 5.5, the only thing I'm missing is root access. So I guess it's time to play the waiting game until weaksauce (or another root program) is applicable to sense 6, I am going to be SO in love with my phone once i have root access once again.

    Hopefully m7 is still on the front burner... I actually had my phone s-off and rooted, but it bugged out and I had to turn it in to Verizon for a replacement (a newly updated m7 phone) . Its been a struggle to keep root - weak sauce was a good fix while it lasted. I must have selected the update by accident because I woke up with Sense 6 and no root. Once again Verizon wins... Anyone that finds a new exploit or patch for weak sauce to I will gladly contribute....Being rootless is like having your hands tied behind your back.

    That's a good way to put it hahahaha, Verizon is currently holding us hostage and we are waiting for an exploit to come and untie the ropes

    Yeah that's old AF at this point and pretty much obsolete. Nothing to T_T over though just use sunshine and towelroot

    finally a solution to this problem!!
    sunshine the root ninja google sunshine root for link has come up with rev 2.0 which will s-off and unlock your bootloader then you can use the procedures from htconeroot.com for Verizon m7 root to install recovery then install superuser I found cwm recovery works better for me than twrp but everything is working great now!! sunshine is not free costs $25 but for me was well worth it
    now have everything I want.
    good luck

    I just bought a Verizon M7 off ebay. Looks like the owner updated it to 4.4.2 and Sense 6 with HBOOT 1.57.

    Tried Weaksauce for root - doesn't work.
    Tried Towelroot for root - says it gives me root, but when I run root checker says no root.
    After running Towelroot, run Sunshine. It tells me I need to run TempRoot which I do and it goes through the process and says: "SU access denied - SunShine was unable to gain root with SU, please ensure su is functioning properly and try again."

    I am pretty sure I can't use HTCDEV to unlock boot loader and it seems like firewater will not work with the versions on my M7 to gain S-OFF.

    I am wanting to update the M7 to a GPE ROM

    I am out of luck or is there a backdoor?

    Had this problem for while, and you're gunna beat your head off the wall...

    Sunshine works ONLY on COMPLETE STOCK models. Did some hard reading all day today at work.

    Uninstall Weaksauce
    Uninstall Towelroot
    Uninstall ALL SuperUser apps

    Restart your phone. Wait for it is fully booted. Done preparing SIM, acquire signal, All that good stuff.

    Then run Sunshine. Make sure you're over 50% battery life. Pay attention to the app as it does its work, series of questions pop up during its tasks. Pay the $25. Continue to follow its requests, and thats all she wrote, folks. Best $25 I've spent in a long while.

    My current stats When I Ran sunshine was
    Verizon HTC One M7
    Hboot 1.57
    Sense 6
    Kitkat 4.4.2

    Thanks sharpshooter238. I will try this now. When you say uninstall all Super User apps, are you talking about just he SU apps or apps that rely on SU like OTA RootKeeper, Titanium etc...?
