Verizon’s HTC One M8 and last year’s HTC One rooted with WeakSauce


The All New HTC One (M8) was announced just last week and now, XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase and Recognized Developer beaups have already rooted Verizon’s variant.

The root uses a new exploit which they call HTC WeakSauce which is a pre-packaged vulnerability version developed by jcase. Since both the developers don’t own a Verizon HTC One M8 yet, the exploit just allows you to gain root access to the device though we can expect jcase and beaups to release a complete hack once they get to own the device.

But that’s not all as WeakSauce can be used to root last year’s Verizon HTC One as well and once you’ve used WeakSauce, you can use beaups’s Firewater to get S-Off.
