HTC One Max is out now to compete with the rival phablets, the device is available in International, Chinese, Verizon and Sprint variants and runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. Earlier, we posted a method to install CWM or TWRP recovery on the HTC One Max, but the root method was left. So, here it is. I’ve explained the method to root HTC One Max in simple and easy words below. You just got to follow this guide to the letter. In case you are not familiar with the root access, then let’s have a little intro to it first.
Rooting your phone gives you complete access over all the data which is apparently locked by the manufacturers. This includes removal of the factory restrictions and making changes to the internal system and the operating system. Gaining the root access gives you the privileges to install various applications to enhance the performance of your device, allows you to remove the built-in applications/programs, helps you to upgrade the battery life of your device & install the apps which require the root access for the proper functionality and modify your device in so many other ways e.g using mods and custom roms. By installing custom recovery, you can flash custom roms in the phone easily. Custom recovery also let’s you backup your current rom and restore it in case of any mishap. There is a laundry list of things you can do after having your device rooted and installed the custom recovery, now once you’re rooted and haveinstalled custom recovery, go ahead and enjoy it on your phone.
