Unhappy [S-OFF] Can't seem to get s-off

Hello all,

I seem to have quite a problem gaining s-off on my brand new HTC m8.
I've tried the firewater s-off method for which i unlocked my device.
Firewater just seems to give me the following message:

Code:
********** whelp, this sucks, firewater can not work on your device **********
********** no amount of reflashing, retrying, or ruuing will fix... **********
**********    DO NOT COME TO IRC ASKING FOR UPDATES OR ETAS!!!!!!   **********
**********  if we are able to fix this issue, it will be announced  **********
**********          bye bye.....sorry it didn't work out.           **********
Followed all the instructions as posted on the firewater page, also disabled verify apps, just to be sure i disabled my virus scanner(making sure nothing interferes) but nothing seems to work.

This is my getvar output:
Code:
(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 3.16.0.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 1.15.2133156.UA13G
(bootloader) version-cpld: None
(bootloader) version-microp: None
(bootloader) version-main: 1.54.401.5

(bootloader) platform: hTCBmsm8974
(bootloader) modelid: 0P6B10000
(bootloader) cidnum: HTC__E11
(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 0mV
(bootloader) partition-layout: Generic

(bootloader) boot-mode: FASTBOOT
(bootloader) commitno-bootloader: ab0efa49

If anyone could offer any help at all it would be very much appreciated, the firewater devs seem to be too busy to answer questions.

Thanks in advance,
Incapable

Some models just can't be s-offed yet. I'm sure eventually a working method will be released for those that don't work with the current method.

I am aware of this, the weird thing is that i saw others with a m8_ul with cid htc__E11 that managed to get it working. Basicly, i'm wondering if there is something i missed

No, that message is quite clear, you missed nothing, did nothing wrong. Your phone can not be s-offed. If you missed something firewater would have informed you. Beaups and the gang have been doing this a long time and their scripts will often detect and alert you if there's something you did wrong or missed.

You're not alone. I get the same message and I'm on Telus just like exad seems to be from his signature. So far there is no pattern as to which ones can or can't s-off (region, provider, etc)
