It should automatically give you root access after you installed weaksauce and SuperSU. It takes maybe 30-60 seconds after it completely boots up.

I have been at this for over a week. I've gotten as far as the 8th bottle but still haven't been able to get S-OFF.

When I first started trying firewater was version 5, now it's up to version 8.

At this point I try it once a day every night(making sure to download the latest firewater each time). I just imagine that sometime it will work.

You can try to talk to beaups in the #firewater IRC channel. He tried helping me before saying "okay Ill try to fix it in the next few days." That was over a week ago but considering he's only getting donations for this I don't hold it against him for it not working instantly for me. Head to the IRC and see if he can help out. Otherwise, I'd say keep trying.
