I'd like to root my HTC One V. Are there any tools specifically for this?

I'm trying to follow this guide but having trouble with step 6 in the HTCdev-Unlock Bootloader guide.

Currently, running Mac OS X 10.7.5.


AndroidForums has a guide for rooting the HTC One V.

I can't post the steps here, since the link is blocked at my current location.

  • That guide states, "If you run Mac, I can’t help you." I'm looking for something specific to Mac OS X. – Drew Ogryzek Feb 7 '13 at 7:28

If you can't root your phone because your on Mac OS X, try running a virtual machine that is running windows and root your phone from there. (I Personally don't have a Mac so am not 100% sure this will work, this is only a suggestion)

  • Matt07211 - That would probably make a better comment than answer, as it would still require purchasing and running Windows OS - Bootcamp would would also work, if that were a solution. Anyway, I've had 2 phone upgrades since posting that 2 and a half years ago! – Drew Ogryzek Aug 14 '15 at 6:01
  • My fault for not checking the date it was posted, sorry and at the time I was unable to comment as I don't have enough reputation – Matt07211 Aug 16 '15 at 1:44

There are some Apps to root most of the Phones for example KingRoot is a good one https://kingroot.net/ install that on your phone and you can easily root
