Default Help Unlocking Bootloader on HTC One Max, Verizon

I have an HTC One Max from Verizon, stock, unrooted, odex, running HBOOT 2.49.0000

I am trying to attempt to unlock the bootloader so i can S-OFF

When i use HTC's DEV site, and submit my token, it tells me that my MID is not allowed.

When i use rumrunner i get this error (see atttached image)

I have tried may things posted on XDA and utube with no success.

if anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Use Firewater and download it using internet explorer. I just got S-OFF on my VZW device 2.49 HBOOT

Ok again this is an HTC one max and I am trying to unlock the boot loader. I can't s-off until I unlock the boot loader first. If you have an HTC one max (not the HTC one m7 or m8), then tell me how you managed to unlock the bootloader.

You cant unlock the bootloader at HTCdev with this devicebecause of carrier regulations so you use firewater to do that. It unlocks your bootloader and gives you s-off

I need to change my sig to show the One Max lol

Also from doing some reading rumrunner isnt effective on HBOOTs after 2.46 or so

Ok once again, this is an HTC one max (not the HTC one m7 or m8) and it's Verizon I am referring to - not sprint or AT&T - and I am trying to unlock the bootloader. I can't s-off until I unlock the bootloader first. If you have an HTC one max (not the HTC one m7 or m8), and it's specifically a Verizon carrier, then tell me how you managed to unlock the bootloader.

Sorry stupid Firefox entered the same thread twice. I will again attempt to use Firewater, but it didn't work for me the last attempt I made. Thanks for the advice and I will follow up.

I have a verizon one max HBOOT 2.49 unlocked bootloader by using Firewater http://firewater-soff.com/

After you read what it is for on the homepage click on the Instructions/Download Tab and of the 3 methods given, use the "Instructions (WeakSauce method - some m8 models and maybe others)" method.

Basically you need to download the app called Weaksauce it is in the steps for the method above and at the link -->http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2699089

When you install the app, it will give you root. install SuperSu from the market and begin the process of Firewater.

Note:

1. When you boot your device make sure weaksauce roots your device before you being to use firewater (you can download the Root Checker app from the market to verify that you have root before you start)

2. Download firewater using Internet Explorer

3. Follow the instructions carefully from both weaksauce and firewater

good luck

I followed your directions and somehow it worked!! the only thing I did differently was downloading firewater from IE instead of firefox. amazing how that is what was causing my issue. I am now unlocked and s-off. thanks for your help and advice everyone

Question, now that i have successfully unlocked the device and achieved s-off, and also have installed a current of version of twrp and rooted, does installing future OTA updates affect any of this? would installing an OTA update cause me to have to re-root? or possibly lose my "unlocked, s-off"?

Thanks,
