Read this guide on How to Install TWRP Recovery on HTC One A9 and even more, you can learn to root your phone as well.
The long list of benefits provided by root access is more than tempting: this is your chance to improve the battery life of your HTC One A9, to install custom roms, tweak it, improve RAM management and lot more. However, let me remind you that by performing such a procedure you will be the only person responsible if something goes wrong.
It is not my fault if your HTC One A9 gets broken in the rooting process or for the warranty lost. I can only advice you to apply this guide on how to restore and to be careful about every single step that you are taking.
Don’t forget to back up your data whenever you attempt to change software on your phone. Rooting will wipe your data, therefore, before proceeding any further, please backup your phone’s data. You must also get the quick ADB and fastboot installer from here and install the HTC USB Drivers on your computer to be prepared for the rooting operation.
Then, open Settings> Developer options and enable USB Debugging on your device and verify the battery percenage. Messing around with your phone’s OS is not at an easy task and trust me when I say that you don’t want to take any chances!
And I can assure you of the fact that this guide is compatible with the HTC One A9 version only. Do not try it on any other device or variant.
