    Using ES File Explorer, I cannot access root explorer. Says test failed and that it will not work on the device. Any solution?

    Is.... Your phone rooted? It has to be before you use that Explorer... The Explorer doesn't root it for you.

    I am reading that Verizon cannot be rooted. Is this correct?

    There is root but not being released because the boot loader on Htc devices have to b unlocked. And VZW locked it 24 hours after release. You can send your phone to guy on XDA that has a java card that change phones cid so you can unlock it

    Not going to work but no one seems to believe the boot loader needs unlocking first. Have fun

    on my older HTC evo 3d i was able to get the unlock code right from HTC's website htcdev.com. is this not an option on the verizon HTC one? i just got this phone a couple days ago and have not had time to look into it further.


    *update. just tried to unlock it on htcdev.com and it will not give you the unlock code. so does anyone know without being able to unlock the bootloader can you get root on the phone just to get rid of the bloatware??

    thanks!

    edit 10-2-13. after further reading Moosc is correct from his top post. verizon shut down htcdev so you cannot unlock the boatloader. only way to get root/ s-off is to send into the person on XDA.
