Firewater S-off for HTC One XL!

Firstly let me say that this isn't my own work, all credit goes to @beaups and @Fuses for bringing this to our device.

Firewater is a new method for achieving s-off on HTC devices.

For everyone that has taken the 5.18 at&t update before unlocking you should be able to use Firewater. It has a temp root feature which will enable you to get s-off on your device, once you have s-off you can get SuperCID via a simple fastboot command (fastboot oem writecid 11111111), then you can unlock your bootloader at htcdev. I'd really appreciate any feedback on whether this works for you.

This is just a simple thread to get this method some exposure for users with our device. As per the licensing section on the site and beaup's wishes I cannot include the download or instructions in this thread. However, we can have this thread serve as a troubleshooting/help location for the One XL. Alternatively, support for rumrunner s-off is available at #rumrunners on the freenode and andirc networks. Please make sure you meet all of the requirements before contacting support.

Firewater S-off.

Please go give beaups and Fuses a bunch of thanks for their work!

I have an unlocked bootloader and supercid. Folowwed directions and it didn't work. Just quit after chugging the first bottle. Now I'm kinda stuck with s-on until I flash cm tonight.

Your situation is the situation I'm really interested in, we really need to find out whether it's possible to unlock the bootloader after taking the 5.18 update. Let me know how you go.

Well that's a shame, thanks for the feedback though. If anybody else can please attempt this also that'd be great.

I agree we need a few more people to test, as new as the guy that did test is. it could be a simple mistake as having anti virus on the computer, etc.
