Tried supervpn app. Worked with sunshine, unfortunately no luck on firewater. S-off finally but cost me 25 bucks.. thanks for all the help

This method does not work on European One M8- signature error pops up. I tried yesterday and I lost s-off. It does not work firewater.

As for Sunshine method, in-app payment declined my credit cards (Myanmar).

And even with my Fav custom ROM, due to base OS difference, there were problems with boot time, boot logo, ...

Finally I found this site

http://bbs.gfan.com/android-7496959-1-1.html


These are what I did.

Stock Nandroid backup and Stock recoveries downloaded from this thread

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2701376

1. I firstly restored to 1.60.708.2 by restoring Stock Nandroid from that thread via TWRP recovery.

2. Restored to Stock recovery from that thread.

3. Relocked the bootloader.

4. Download this and rename to HBOOT.zip
http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shar...7&uk=622017286

Download this and rename to 0P6BIMG.zip
http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shar...4&uk=622017286

5. Enter RUU mode by the command:

fastboot oem rebootRUU

Then flash HBOOT by

fastboot flash zip HBOOT.zip

6. Then, transfer the downloaded 0P6BIMG.zip to the root of mSD via Card Reader, then insert to the phone.

7. Reboot to bootloader by

fastboot reboot-bootloader

ROM flashing will start automatically.
It will take a long time to complete.

Then ur phone will boot up with 1.54.708.5 downgraded OS.

8. Then Unlock Bootloader.
9. Flash TWRP recovery.
10. Root with SU zip in TWRP.
11. Finally, use Firewater to get S-OFF.


DO IT WITH YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY

I've tried this method and now with SuperCID


Good day !!
I want to downgrade, but I have a question to make this downgrade I
need to be S-ON or S-OFF?

You don't need to be s-offed to downgrade. If you are already s-offed, no need to downgrade. Just supercid and flash any firmware you want.

Hi!
I have done everything up to 7 steps, but the flashing returns an error about HBOOT and about size of file
what I am doing wrong?

I try to open 0P6BIMG.zip with winrar, and it says that archve is corrupt.
i download this file 3 times and from different sources and have the same thing (is that normal?)

i have htc m8y (thc__622)
