Much like the HTC One X that saw root come by way of MoDaCo's Superboot previously, the HTC One S has also been given the same treatment. All the same rules apply here as they did for the One X, meaning you'll be needing a device with S-OFF in order to get this to work and since HTC doesn't ship devices with their bootloaders unlocked, we'll have to wait and see how quick they offer up usage of the bootloader unlock tool. Unless of course, someone takes it upon themselves to beat them to the punch. In either case, whenever S-OFF can be achieved on the retail units you'll only need to load up the MoDaCo Superboot and you'll have root.
