How to Root HTC One SV

An HTC One SV with root access means plenty of opportunities. All of them will unite and turn your device into a superior one. To get you ready for the rooting, you need to follow a tutorial. This post will tell you all there is to know about the procedure and how to apply it.

When you’re up against a rooting, you need the right tool to get you there. For that, you’ll require the assistance of SRSRoot app. The latter’s an app which you can install for free. After you do that, your phone will no longer suffer from various shortcomings.

This dedicated app works for every gadget. This and the fact that it’s free of charge are only some of its pros. The app is powered by an SRS Server. The tool will give great results no matter the Build ID you choose to use. The one we opted for is this: IMM76I.

The benefits of this procedure

There are many new things to look forward to once root access appears. Your handset will deliver faster CPU speeds. Its dual-core 1.2 GHz Krait processor isn’t the only feature to receive improvement. The smartphone’s battery is also going to come out so much the better from the rooting. Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is your device’s OS. The SRSRoot won’t delete this version from your HTC One SV.

Your smartphone’s been available since last year. With this application safely flashed on it, you’ll see what it’s like to use new features. The phone won’t have problems such as viruses and other security threats. If you aren’t satisfied with how the handset feels or looks, the rooting will deliver customization opportunities.HTC-One-SV

The list of novelties doesn’t end here. On the contrary. It continues with custom ROMs and root-only apps. The SRSRoot isn’t the sort of app to bring bloatware on the device it deals with. Same with your phone: no unnecessary or unwanted programs will appear. Superuser and admin permission are both available, too.

A gadget sporting root access will not see its warranty after the procedure is done. Fortunately, you can always use an online method to restore that.

When a rooted HTC One SV is gearing towards an upgrade, its system partition will be left out. Once that’s erased, the root access will come next; in other words: it will be revoked. For what it’s worth, the phone will keep, among other, the following: internal / external SD cards and important data.


A rooting requires some preparations. Get the handset ready for this procedure via the following pre-requisites:

  • generate backups for the phone’s data;
  • initiate a full NANDroid backup, using this tutorial;
  • the notebook must have USB drivers that are fully compatible with the HTC One SV;
  • this page has them, so download the drivers from it;
  • your phone battery should be fully charged;
  • the OS on your notebook needs to be Windows;
  • remember to turn off, on your smartphone, the security programs;
  • deactivate the notebook’s security programs.

Step by step instructions

The SRSRoot is now prepared to meet your smartphone. Introduce it to that device via the following group of steps.

  1. Begin the tutorial by finding a place for the package represented by the app, on your notebook. Download the software from this particular place.
  2. A download button will soon come up; click on it and let the download start. You will have to flash the app and then open it on the notebook.
  3. As soon as the previous actions have been performed, tap this: Unknown Sources. You may not find this option easily. That’s why we suggest doing it like this: after you tap Menu on the handset, tap Settings. The Unknown Sources is the option under the Settings one.
  4. After that, tap USB Debugging. Now connect the phone to your notebook. Once the two are intertwined, you should move on. Which means that you can begin the handset’s rooting.
  5. There is something you need to do in order to start that process. This is what’s required of you: tap Root Device (All Methods).
  6. The rooting is a process which needs 13 minutes to finish. By the time these minutes are up and nothing’s happened, repeat the steps. Then, once the procedure is finally completed, reboot your phone.
  7. Start that by tapping the following option: Reboot System Now. As soon as the handset restarts, you’ll know that it has root access at last!

The SRSRoot is an app which not only brings goodies; it also unroots the HTC One SV it’s on. So if you want to revoke the root access, you know what to use.
