A little while ago I flashed a nightly CyanogenMod 13 build on my HTC one M8. I am happy with the ROM, but during the process my root access was broken. Unfortunately the HTC one M8 is not compatible with common One Click Root software, and when I rooted it in the first place I had to do it manually. I can still use my custom recovery (CWM) but no apps that require root access. Also, If one of you manages to get my phone rooted and I lose all of my data, will I still be able to keep root access if I restore from backup?
I have spent fucking hours searching for a solution and you, /g/ are my last resort. I didn't want to have to do this, but I am. If you see this thread as simply 'Another Newfag who things /g/ is tech support', so be it, but at least I have had a good look around for an answer.
>tl;dr I need my CyanogenMod 13 HTC one M8 rooted
but I thought Android was free and great, if it's open source doesn't it mean you can do anything with it? just write your own code to gain root access!
Since I'm not a neet, I don't have time for autism so iOS just werks for me ;^)
This didn't work. When I tried to flash the ROM again, there was a text in my recovery saying root access is missing or broken. It was rooted previously. Selecting "allow root access" in the settings didn't work
The message that says "root access possibly lost" in ClockworkMod is a known bug, it also says that in my phone. It doesn't actually mean anything, I still have root. It was as simple as going to developer options and enabling root from there. What happens when you try to enable root from developer options?
Tried it, nothing happened.
It might also be worth mentioning that everytime I try to manually install SuperSU zip file the phone goes into bootloop
Bootloop is where the phone reboots, but gets stuck on the logo screen (for all eternity)
I mean, nothing happened? Are you sure? Because that message ClockworkMod gives you is bullshit. Find a real app that asks for root, like Greenify. What message does it show when you try to enable root features? It should give you some sort of a toast message.
>it didn't work
Stop asking for help and giving vague answers. As for Odin, google it yourself. It's your problem why the hell would you expect people to hold your hand through everything.
>why the hell would you expect people to hold your hand through everything.
Anyway, I enable developer options, then proceed to select the option to allow root access for Apps and Adb. When I then attempt to use an app that requires root access, it doesn't work.
Installing SuperSU via custom recovery forces my phone into bootloop. Downloading SuperSU from the play store works, but when I try to use it I get the message "No superSU binaries found" or some shit
Fuck you, you arrogant son of a bitch. You were too damn cocky to do a proper backup before flashing a FUCKING NIGHTLY. Now your shit is fucked and you want a bunch of weebs from the internet to hold your hold.
No message when enabling root access in Dev options. The message varies from App to app. SixAxis controller says "check root privelages"
SuperSU says "no binaries" (I searched for an answer to this to no avail)
this >>52664893 is not me
I've never got a virus.
The file you downloaded came from here?
I'm looking for it myself now, I've been using a stock rooted rom for a long long while now and it's finally getting to bloaty for my liking So I've been due to run through this process again myself
You really are a moron. If you backed your shit up before installing an EXPERIMENTAL rom, you could at least have something to work with. Go over to the XDA or Cyanogenmod forums. Have you filed a bug report yet?
As far as I am concerned, nightly builds are the only CM Roms available for HTC one M8
I NEVER SAID I DIDN'T HAVE A BACKUP
If you can't access root on that nightly then you have a bug. What do you do with a bug? Report it. We can't fix the bug, that's what the CM developers do. Reflash to your last backup and stop crying.
I suggest you slowly, and carefully, begin reading. If you don't, enjoy your brick.
Without reading and literally just going through the forums and searching things like "Root" "Recovery" and "tool" in the device specific section.. Here are some things I'd look through;
and I've personally used this in the past but it was a long time ago, I have no idea if it's relevant anymore....
One maybe two other people opened this thread with the intention of helping I'm sure.
Though honestly all the information wasn't too hard to search out. Next time, when in doubt, Google harder, you'll usually get farther than asking here.
Why the fuck are you using CWM?
That shit is old and unsupported, find a better recovery, i dont know if twrp supports your phone but if it does use that.
Also you either are facing some major bug in CM or youre using some meme self compile rom by a poo in the loo individual.
