Hurray!! Your phone has been rooted successfully and ready for the next step of unlocking bootloader before installing custom roms, mods, themes, kernels and much  more.

Now you can back up your device data using apps like Titanium Backup before you move on to the next step (of unlocking bootloader, that will erase your phone memory). At this stage you will be eligible for all OTA updates from HTC despite being rooted, if you want to receive updates do not unlock the bootloader and end the process here.

NOTE: If you were unable to complete the rooting and device status is still unroot or if you cannot find the SuperUser app in the app drawer, then try again and make sure you face no error messages. In such a case you are probably doing something wrong.

Another way to achieve success is to first unlock your bootloader with the steps mentioned below, before you root your device but this ofcourse won’t give you a chance to backup device data with Titanium Backup, so you will need to use the manual backup methods mentioned at the beginning.
