[Q] I am now S-Off w/ Bootloader Unlocked using Firewater!
Okay, so now I can confirm that Firewater worked great - using the temproot method. Where do I go from here? The instructions I've found for installing TWRP were extremely confusing. I had no problems following the directions for Firewater, but this is a different story. Now that I'm unlocked and S-Off, where do I go from here?
Congrats! Well you need to flash a recovery. Get a recovery.img http://flyhalf205.com/getdownload.ph....3.4-m7vzw.img and place it on your pc in the same folder as the fastboot.exe file. Open a cmd prompt and navigate to the directory where the 2 files are. Boot the phone to bootloader (hboot). Then in the cmd terminal type
fastboot erase cache
fastboot flash recovery nameofrecoveryimg.img

Thank you very much! I do have some questions. Do I need to be rooted? In the bootloader screen it says I am S-Off and Unlocked, but I don't think I am rooted. I have to use the temproot included with Firewater. I downloaded a twrp .img. Am I supposed to flash that? Once that is flashed, am I free to download a custom rom?
If you are s-off and unlocked all you need to do is flash that recovery i posted, and then flash a rom of your choosing. Most every rom comes pre-rooted. I assume right now you are stock. If you want to stay stock just flash that recovery, then flash superuser thru recovery and you will be rooted.

Where did you get the firewater download from, got a link?
Linux - Xubuntu to be specific. It seems to only recognize the device half of the time when connected to USB. It hangs indefinitely - 5 min was the longest I would wait. When I select Recovery from the hboot menu, I get a silhouette of my phone with a "NO" symbol through it. This is not normal.
