The HTC One M8 stole the headlines last week with its March 25 launch. The One M8 looks to have a bright future in the mobile industry this year, setting the precedent for other manufacturers. As with any new device release, developers begin to scour the known data looking for ways to root the device.

XDA reports that Jcase and Beaups have done just that with the Verizon HTC One M8 version. While they don’t have the physical device, they have proven that they are able to obtain root access on the software. XDA also states that WeakSauce will also work with last year’s HTC M7. It didn’t take long for developers to get to work on rooting the new device and accomplishing the goal.

XDA’s news on now being able to root the HTC One M8 is a welcome surprise for those itching to root their M8 that they have preordered. While this root is only viable for the Verizon M8, it is very likely that developers are working on root options for the other carriers as well.

I'm not a developer or anything like that. I'm a consumer, just like you. I like to give my thoughts on Android products from the non-technical side. Yes, I do provide some of the technical specs and such, but really, I just want to give you the best news possible.

    Hopefully, this will expand out to other carriers soon, too.
