    Since the multiple threads I have perused on android central and xda have thus far proved inconclusive, can someone tell me definitively if it is *currently* impossible to root the HTC One (M7) running Lollipop (5.0.2) on Verizon? I know that Verizon makes a huge issue out of locking everything down, but I want to know if it is even possible at the moment.

    Everything I have read or tried either requires root to unlock the bootloader, ore requires the bootloader to be unlocked first in order to achieve root in the first place. Is this just a vicious catch-22 that means that I'm SOL?

    Towelroot, Safestrap, SunShine, Odin, etc. have all proven ineffective.
