Tutorial For HTC One S Root, Unlock, Recovery, and ROM Flashing
Getting a new Android phone can be as daunting as it is exciting. However, the new technology, the newest versions of Android and OEM skins, and the superior hardware are just the beginning of the fun. The next step is unlocking the bootloader, rooting the device, getting recovery, and finding a new favorite ROM. It can take awhile even for advanced users to find the methods to do all these things.
For owners of the HTC One S, the relevant methods are conveniently packed into one, neatly kept thread. XDA Senior Member torxx has written such a thread as a beacon to all users looking to do a little more than installing the latest version of Draw Something and sync their contacts.
The tutorial is brief, but every bit as informative as it needs to be. The tutorial guides users through unlocking their bootloaders via HTCDev’s website, flashing a custom recovery, and obtaining root access. The guide does require a little background knowledge, so make sure you understand all steps before getting started.
