Anyone else run into this:

======== ControlBear version 0.1 for JuopunutBear S-OFF ==========
Starting up......
Waiting device
Program requires root, sorry.
Quit....
Press ENTER to exit.....

I've tried many different things that were suggested and things that I read other people tried. I'm unlocked, rooted, have amon ra recovery and running stock. I have restarted computer, reinstalled JuopunutBear and htc drivers. Made sure I unzipped JuopunutBear where adb/fastboot is located. Kind of at a loss at what to try next. Any suggestions.

Also wanted to thank everyone helping solve these issues. Many of whom have been doing it for hours and hours.

I ran into this problem as well. Here is what I did to get the program to work again:

1. Reformat SD Card.
2. reinstall recovery - Amon Ra using adb.
3. Wipe in recovery (like you would when installing a Rom)
4. Flash your current Rom that is on your phone. Make sure you also flash the boot image.
5. Once your phone is back up and running, retry the process for S-off. If you fail, redo the above steps.

Note: This worked for me. Hopefully this will help.

i dont know why this is happening to me of all people but yea. if i get no answer here, il ruu my phone and try again, nothing else i can do.
If you can get to hboot... reflash your recovery again and then try booting into recovery. Then reflash your entire ROM from scratch.

For those with problems...

Some have suggested CWM recovery does not like this exploit and preventing it from working. They switched to Amon RA and it worked...

Switch to Amon RA recovery before starting this exploit guys.

I am on Amon RA and had zero issues.

Also if you keep having issues... you may need to start fresh... Boot into recovery (you may need to reflash your recovery if it will not boot into it) wipe everything (factory reset/wipe system/data and both cache) then reinstall your ROM from scratch. (including the kernel/boot.img) Reboot phone, ensure settings in the developer menu are correct (usb debugging) and start the exploit again.

Default No beer for bear tonight!

If you run the program as an admin, and immediately see "No beer for bear tonight" you need to go to recovery, wipe all, and reinstall a ROM, this worked for me. Then I got S-Off first try.

Try reflashing recovery again... it boils down to getting a good recovery then booting into it.

If you can get to hboot you can fix it.

You are S=Off right? You should be able to flash anything with s=off and proper commands. It could be issues with ADB not flashing the recovery for some reason.

yes iv flashed the recovery like 5 times already. yes i am s-off, going to try make another copy of adb and flash it form there.

edit: something is wrong here, im noticing the device does not reboot after i hit recovery on fastboot, it just shows the htc white screen. something is not right here

I'm having the same issue.
I've rebooted my phone and pc, formatted/tried three sd cards. I have the three files in my fastboot folder. I have flashed my Rom(rezrom 3.4) and recovery. And have had no luck, still getting the same error. Has anyone found a work around? Or does anyone see that I'm doing something wrong? Thanks in advance
