I have followed firewaters steps over and over and over again. Every single time at the very end right after chugging... a huge paragraph appears and it says my phone is incompatible no ruuing flashing etc etc blah blah will work with my device...

I unlocked the bootloader with htc dev using the latest Toolkit, everything went smoothly. It shows Tampered Unlocked but with S-ON.

I am not used to htc phones. I have always had a samsung, So I am not used to S-OFFing? If thats a term? LoL

Anyone have any advice? Please?

I read somewhere to use a Sense based rom. I used renovate...but everytime I tried copying over firewater I would get a tombstone with an error. So I tried using firewater with Liquid smooths 6/29 nightly, and it would get to the chugging part then say my device is incompatible just like it did on renovate. Im lost and confused lol

Use sunshine to get s-off. The firewater devs released a new exploit called sunshine. It costs $25 to use it though. But it does work

Seems like you got the "Whelp" message in firewater. Then, it's no use trying again, it just won't work on your phone.

Sunshine is the only other s-off alternative. But I agree, it's totally worth the money.
Install a stock ROM (or as stock as possible to get all chances your side) and run the app. Worked flawlessly for me, easy as that.

Considering I paid more than twice that I think you got a good deal! Stump up and don't be Stingy.
