Yeah thats only true for the verizon model... Not the sprint model.. Firewater works on the sprint variant if you have root and the proper kernel.

easy as pie, folks:

1) load up @benny3's latest stock deodexed (or odexed if your really care) ROM;

2) yes -- the above has the correct kernel;

3) run it, update SuperSU just for good measure (run SuperSU and let it update in TWRP (mine, of course -- lol -- unless you like another build );

4) follow instructions.

takes about two minutes, done.

1.55 hboot is fine too, so's 1.56. How do I know? Cuz I did 'em. LOL.

No go running 1.56 here. Any enlightenment will help. I've done the above and followed the instructions on an OS X 10.8.2, Windows 7 x32 fresh, and Windows 8.1 x64. Baseband 1.00.20.1108 Software 3.05.651.6 if that helps.

Default 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
later today.

I can't get it to work at all. I have tried15-20 times and every time the same result. 12 cans and no buzz

I have tried the Android Revo 31.6 ROM, 3 different Venom ROM's, 2 different Bad Boy ROMS and benny3's latest ROM

I try on a hard drive with a new install of Windows 7, installed HTC Sync and removed HTC Sync. No other programs installed. It's a fresh
windows 7 install.
I have all the correct settings including 1 hour wake, no lock screen, and some other various settings I stumbled across.
I am plugged into a USB 2.0 port on back of computer(Tower PC)
I have SuperSu 1.94( which always wants to install binary and reboots)
It does not work. My phone is brand new, not sure if that makes a difference.
Any help is appreciated
