Firewater worked on 4.4.2 with hboot 1.56
I tried Rumrunner with no succsess. Used several different Roms. Tried with unsecured kernels. Odexed and Deodexed.
I was about to give up. I saw several folks had used Firewater with good results.
1) I HTC Dev unlocked
2) Used the Android Revolution HD Rom.
3) Updated to SuperSu 1.94 (1.93 was giving me a weird boot loop)
4) Debugging engaged, Fastboot disengaged.
5) No sync software from HTC or anyone else on the PC.
6) Dropped the firewater folder in with the adb
7) Ran exactly as directed. I did get a root type request. So I answered SU.
8) One bottle of firewater was chugged. Stated as good and hot.
9) S-off achieved in about 4 minutes or less
Now, I cannot tell you if I needed the unsecured kernel for Firewater. But, to get anyplace close with Rumrunner it was needed.
Rumrunner went through a bunch of bottles then told me to reboot, rerun Rumrunner, and pray.
Now, I can complete my original task from 6 weeks ago. I want to go back to 4.3. Some things I am using do not work well with
4.4. Photo Vault. Mighty Text, Emoticons vs the suck-ass emoji, and so forth. I will thank the devolopers with a bottle of firewater
