I'm pretty sure its a known issue that s-off won't work on ViperOne, at least for some folks.

Why do you want other ROMs? Just flash Maximus or stock, do the S-off, then go back to whatever ROM your want. It doesn't matter what ROM you s-off on (whether you like it or not) you will be on it for about 5 minutes.

The old GoldenEye ROM worked for me (as its close to stock, just cleaned up - and stock kernel) but that was firewater, not sunshine.

Do you think the GoldenEye rom will work with firewater still or no?

If your M8 was shipped or OTA to a more recent software version, than probably not. The exploit was probably plugged in hboot or some other partition not related to the ROM itself. Of course, it doesn't hurt to try. Some folks have lucked out and s-off'ed with firewater even recently.

What hboot, radio?

Got it. Flashed Maximum rom, used Sunshine to gain S-Off, updated my firmware, restored old backup.

I flashed a stock backup that's floating around our forum and used SunShine .
Roughly 5 minutes or so and bam i'm now S-OFF and can now go to sleep after a solid 24 hours or more messing around with firewater,rumrunner, multi combinations of Rom/kernels with no luck.

Not sure if Maximus plays well with firewater after the ROM was updated to 3.x software (I know there were reports that it helped before the ROM was updated).

I did firewater with GoldenEye back in the day, pretty sure. If a couple attempts with firewater + GoldenEye don't do it, I agree that you need sunshine.
