Thanks to Justin Case, We Can Now Root the Verizon HTC One M8 and One M7

We all just love developers like Justin Case, right? I’m not sure what we’d do without them. But Justin Case has been responsible for rooting many other Verizon devices, and he’s done it again with the HTC One M8, and the One M7. He has a new app called WeakSauce (kinda funny name) which you can just install on your device and root it, it’s pretty easy actually, but don’t worry, we’ve got the full instructions down below for those that need help. So now you can root and ROM your HTC One M7 and M8, which is definitely good for those on Verizon. Remember this only works for the Verizon variants of both HTC One’s, so don’t try this on other models like the International One, or the Sprint HTC One. It won’t work, at least not yet.

For those interested in rooting their HTC One M7 or One M8, here’s how you do it. First download and install WeakSauce. Open up the app as usual, and then agree to the terms. Next, simply press “Root” to begin rooting your device. Wait about a minute for the app to do its thing, then install SuperSU from the Play Store, and Voila you’re rooted. It’s just that simple. Now all we need is a recovery for the HTC One M8 on Verizon. We already have it available for the Sprint HTC One M8 and the International HTC One M8.

It’s great to see a Verizon device get rooted so early. It usually takes pretty long since Verizon locks them down so tight. This is definitely going to help some Verizon users into making the choice to upgrade to the HTC One M8. How many of you on Verizon are thinking of grabbing the HTC One M8?
