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. Commented Feb 7, 2013 at 7:28

  • I took the freedom to add your question to our rooting index, where we link one question per device (so future visitors looking for how-to-root-One-V should come here). You might want to check there, maybe a solution for a related device susch as the One X or One XL could work for you?

  • HTC has a tool called HTC Quick Root tool it works with the latest crop of HTC’s Android devices, including the One X, One S and One V. As far as i'm aware it is available for PC only forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1870652

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! Commented Aug 14, 2015 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
