If you want to root your phone easily and install roms you're best bet is to just go with a Nexus device. Nexus devices are built specifically for developers and as such are the most dev friendly devices available. Phone's on T-Mobile's network came with an unlockable bootloader for several years, but even phones on T-Mobile are being locked down by OEMs. Verizon and AT&T have locked down devices for several years. This has meant that if we want root and roms on these devices we have to rely on developers and security experts to develop root methods and bootloader unlock methods.
Therootninja team has been providing bootloader and S-Off methods for Verizon HTC and Moto devices among other devices for the past few years. The best part about their app is that it basically does the entire process automagically. You just sit back and watch it do its thing. The SunShine Bootloader Unlock app has just been updated to version 3.4 and it is packing a few cool new features.
The latest version finally brings temp root to the HTC 10 with Verizon HTC 10 support. Another big feature here is No Wipe S-Off for the HTC 10! The temp root for the HTC 10 actually works with SuperSU now. Head to the link below and grab the app.
