HTC One A9, the latest flagship phone from the manufacturer has recently been launched and developers have begun with it’s development. The root method for this device is now available and HTC One A9 users who own it can root their device readily. Simply flashing the latest available SuperSU zip file should do the trick.
According to Captain_Throwback, a developer at XDA, since the HTC One A9 has dm-verity enabled and forces encryption by default, root can only be achieved using the new systemless root methods. Hence, there are two currently working methods. One, with the SuperUser, that requires flashing only a zip file and installing an app from the Play Store. We have already listed this root method. Get to our post through this link. It also includes the root method for other variants.
Secondly, you can flash the latest available systemless SuperSU v2.62-3 package through TWRP. It automatically disables forced encryption & dm-verity. However, you will need to format data in TWRP before you proceed. So if you are looking forward to root your device in no time and have TWRP setup, then go through this procedure.
Remember, it will wipe your data, that means your apps and app data will be lost. Hence backup all your important stuff before you proceed.
