For those of you who want to install GPE(Google Play Edition) ROMs on your HTC One, you will have to upgrade your radio. To upgrade the radio, you must have S-OFF. (Or you probably could unroot with GPE stock ROM and do OTA also.)
So, here’s how to do it.
First, we will be using RumRunner S-Off, which works on many different devices like HTC One X/XL, HTC One Max, HTC One Mini, HTC One S, HTC Evo 4G LTE, HTC First, HTC Butterfly, and HTC Butterfly S.
RumRummer works on all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, International, and Unlocked phones.
*Note – You can use Windows or Linux computer.
Before we begin, make sure you have a rooted HTC One, if you don’t have a rooted HTC One, follow our HTC One Root tutorial first. Also, make sure you turn off any security locks such as encryption, screen lock, etc…etc…
Step 1. Make sure USB debugging is checked ON under Settings->Developer Options. You may have to hit Build Number under Settings->About Phone a bunch of times to get Developer Options menu showing.
Also, if using Sense or stock ROM, turn off “Fastboot” option in Settings.
Step 2. Connect a micro-USB cable from your HTC One to your computer. Do not use USB 3.0 or a USB hub, connect directly to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
Step 3. Download the latest version of RumRunner for your Linux or Windows computer and unzip the files.
You should get a bunch of files.
Step 4. For Windows, make sure you have HTC drivers installed. You can verify by going into Device Manager and checking for either “My HTC” or “Android ADB Interface”. If you don’t have those, download HTC drivers and install them. You do not need drivers for Linux so skip this step.
Step 5. For Windows, simply double-click on soju.exe to run the Rumrunner S-OFF program.
Open a terminal and type:
tar -zxf rumrunner_.tgz
chmod 755 *
Follow the program and type “Yes” when it asks you and also make sure to allow USB debugging on your HTC One’s screen. You will have to do this very often so keep your screen ON and quickly hit “OK” whenever you see “Allow USB debugging” window pop-up.
Step 6. When Rumrunner is done, you will see your HTC One reboot to bootloader with “S-OFF” at the top right. Congratulations!
