Hello all,

I am having issues installing any ROM on my HTC One Max. I have unlocked it using HTCdev, installed CWM, SuperUser, but have not bee able to set S-OFF.

However, I have not been able to install any rooms using the tradition way of installing the zip via the recovery or using fastboot. Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated.

What I did was rip the boot image from the Rom then install the Rom using clockwork then back into boot loader and flash the boot image using fastboot commands from pc then reboot into your Rom, from this i was able to s off !

Thanks for the infmration. I tried firewater and it did not work. I haven't used boom before. Could you point me to where I can get that?

marra2 Thank for the response. If I understood you correctly, I should remove the boot image from the rom zip before I flash and then boot into bootloader and flash the image image. Will this then set s-off? or do I need to do something else?

have you tried flashing twrp recovery?

i have T6spr, haven't been able to get s-off either, but i've been able to flash any compatible rom, and make sure the rom you're trying to flash is compatible with your device. i've noticed that the htc one max has several different build tree's! ><

No I haven't tried TWRP recovery. I am still on CWM, I will try that and see if that allows me to flash roms even without s-off
