Update: Normal version of SuperSU root tool is not working for the HTC One M9 due to changes in how system partitions are mounted and all, for which you can read more here. Anyway, there’s a fix available, and right now, the beta version of SuperSU,, is working absolutely fine, as it takes care of mounting the system partition properly even when TWRP recovery keeps it as read-only, which is required to be able to make a backup of stock system partition, a must do thing before beginning to flash custom ROMs and all such things.

HTC One M9 is set to hit the stores worldwide in a couple of weeks, and if you’re planning on getting one but wondering if you’d be able to restore your Titanium Backup from your current phone to the One M9, we’ve some good news to share.

You can root your HTC One M9 right after unboxing. The device supports an easy bootloader unlock directly from HTC, and TWRP recovery is also out already, and the missing piece of puzzle for achieving root is fulfilled by the latest SuperSU zip file from Chainfire, which is able to easily root the One M9 with a single zip flash from TWRP recovery.

Grab the latest SuperSU zip file from the download link below and flash it from twrp recovery. If you need help, we’ve also posted detailed guide (noob-friendly) for rooting the One M9 along with links to guides for unlocking the bootloader and installing TWRP recovery.


  • SuperSU beta version: Download Link | Filename:
    Find the latest beta version here.

The normal version of SuperSU, till v2.46, is clearly not working on HTC One M9. So, don’t use the below. Although, it’s possible that future versions of SuperSU fix the problem and start working alright.


WARNING: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Important Note: Backup important files (music, photos, documents, videos, etc.) stored on your HTC One M9 before proceeding with the steps below. Root will be achieved by flashing a file from TWRP recovery, which requires an unlocked bootloader on your HTC One M9, and unlocking bootloader completely wipes the storage on a device. So make sure you backup any/all of your important files on a PC.

  2. Unlock the bootloader on your HTC One M9.
  3. Install TWRP recovery on your One M9.

Create your own look for the One M9

Personalization is an important thing for many people. You want your homescreens to reflect your tastes, and don't want to be stuck with the fonts and icons dictated by your phone's default UI. With HTC Themes, you can change not only the background, but also download hundreds of themes, icon packs and fonts for your One M9. You can even create your own custom theme. Here's how:

  • Open the Themes app
  • Tap the '+' icon at the top right
  • Tap Choose Home image, then Camera to take a photo of a background you want your theme based around, orGallery to pick one you already have.
  • Once you've selected a background, select a filter, crop the image, then tap Next until you reach the Create theme: style page. If you want to tweak the theme HTC created, tap Edit, or tap Next if you're happy.
  • Give the theme a name, check that the Apply this theme now box is ticked, then tap OK.

Quickly add widgets to your homescreens

Widgets are some of the most useful things for your phone, letting you control and access features that you'd usually need to go into an app or your phone's settings for. Adding widgets on the One M9 is easy:

  • Long-tap an empty space on one of your homescreens, then tap Add apps and widgets.
  • Here you can add things like the Peel Smart Remote, wireless connectivity widgets, and more.The ever-handy WiFi, Mobile Data and Bluetooth widgets are actually hidden much further down the widgets list, so you'll need to scroll down to find them.
  • Once you've found a widget you want to add to your homescreen, long-tap its icon until you pick it up, then drag it up into one of the homescreen thumbnails above.

Launch the camera using the volume rocker

Want to jump straight into the camera app without having to turn your screen on first? You can do so by following these steps:

  • First, go to Settings > Display & gestures > Motion Launch gestures then tick the box next to 'Volume button to launch Camera.
  • Your One M9 doesn't tell you this, but you also need to assign the volume rocker to the shutter button in the cameraapp.To do this, open the Camera app, tap the three-dot icon, then the Settings cog icon.
  • Tap General Settings > Volume button options > Capture

Use your HTC One M9 with gloves on

Remember how frustrating it used to be with older smartphones when you had gloves on and would try in vain to swipe and tap your screen to answer an urgent call? HTC addresses this nightmarish problem by having a dedicated 'Glove mode', which - you guessed it - makes the screen more responsive when you're wearing gloves.

  • Go to Settings > Display & gestures then tick the box next to 'Glove mode' to enable this feature. This makes your screen more sensitive, so we recommend you turn it on only when you need it, otherwise your One M9 might start misbehaving in your pocket.

Cap data usage on your HTC One M9

'Data shock' is becoming less and less frequent these days, thanks to decreased mobile roaming charges, more transparency from network providers, and handy phone features. The HTC One M9 has its own clear and simple tool that lets you cap your mobile data usage, and even set a monthly cycle for your data usage to be in sync with your monthly mobile contract.

  • Go to Settings > More > Data usage then tap the Limit mobile data usage box.
  • Two lines will appear in the graph - one showing your custom-set data limit, the other marking when you receive a warning that you're approaching your limit. Drag these two lines using the colored markers on the right side so that they're in line with your data tariff.
  • Tap Reset data usage, then select the day of the month on which you receive your bill from your network provider.

Track battery usage on your HTC One M9

There are plenty of third-party battery monitor apps out there that break down much much battery you're using on various apps, processes and tools on your phone. While these are great if you want to go into forensic detail with your battery usage, the One M9 has a perfectly decent battery monitor itself. To use it:

  • Go to Settings > Power. Here you can switch on Power saver and Extreme power saving modes (which you can also do in your Quick Settings menu), and check stats on your battery usage.
  • Tap History to see a graph showing your battery depleting (depressing, we know) and see how many days use you can get on your remaining charge.
  • From the Power menu, tap Batter usage to see which apps, services and features use most battery. Tap Screen Off or Screen On to see which apps use most battery in these respective states.
  • To switch off a battery-hogging app, tap it in the list, then tap Force stop.

Hide system apps and 'smart folders'

Thanks to the large-scale public outcry against bloatware on Android devices, you now have much more control over what apps appear on your device. The HTC One M9 features the usual Google apps and also an annoying little 'Suggestions' box on your homescreens, but you can hide all of these if you wish:

  • To hide apps in the app drawer, open the app drawer, tap the tree-dotted icon at the top right, Hide/unhide apps, then tap all the apps that you'd like to hide.
  • To remove so-called 'smart folders' like Downloads and Suggestions from your Sense Home Widget, tap the Home/Work/Out dropdown menu in the widget, tap the overflow menu (three-dotted icon), then Show/hide smart folders. Untick the boxes for the folders you want to hide, then tap OK.

Quickly switch between front and rear cameras

At first glance, the One M9 camera may seem a bit fiddly to switch between the front (sorry, 'selfie') camera and rear camera, seemingly requiring you to tap the four-circle icon at the bottom right, then selecting a new shooting mode. But there is a much quicker way:

  • To quickly switch between the front and rear camera on your One M9, swipe left or right if you're in portrait mode, or up or down if you're in landscape mode. In Landscape mode, you can also swipe to the Panorama mode using this method.

Fine-tune the volumes on different phone features

Remember how Lollipop got rid of the classic 'mute' mode on phones and replaced it with the inscrutable Priority Mode? Most manufacturers are now backtracking on this feature, but from day one the HTC One M9 kept Priority Mode as an option, alongside standard mute mode.

  • To silence your ringtone - but not alarms or music and videos - just hold the volume down button on your One M9 until you reach silent mode.
  • To silence your alarm, or music and videos, individually, tap the volume button, then the cog icon on the 'Ringtone' display that appears.
  • Use the sliders to adjust - or completely silence - the volume on their corresponding features.

Turn your One M9 into a TV remote

Like the One M8 before it, the HTC One M9 has a built-in iR blaster, which makes it a great all-in-one remote for TVs, AV receivers and even air conditioners around your house. The One M9 replaced the 'TV' app with Peel Smart Remote. After some early problems, the app is now working as it should. Here's how to set it up:

  • If you haven't yet, download and install Peel Smart Remote, then open it.
  • Follow the setup process, then when you're finished you'll be presented with a screen showing what Live TV you can watch with your selected TV provider.
  • To add another device, tap the remote icon at the top right, tap the header at the top-centre, then tap Add device. This will take you through the same process as setting up your TV.
  • Tap the three dots at the top right, Settings, then scroll down to Remote Control if you want your remote control to be displayed in the notifications menu, or if you want an 'Always on' widget on your screen.
  • You can also add the remote control widget using the standard method (see 'Quickly add widgets to your homescreens').
