Hi all I am new to XDA but not to the forum or nodding community. Basically I have the HTC one M8 with an update that seems to have blocked firewater (1.12.605.11). I have tried a few times but firewater just looped and suddenly the phone will reboot. No damage seems to be done but I am curious what is required to get S-OFF on this update. I have searched the web but all firewater posts seem to be dated April 7 when firewater came out far before this new update. So is S-OFF even possible at this moment? And is their possibly a way to rollback to the older software? I would think not coming from my motorola mentality of nothing is moddable but HTC might be different? I appreciate any help to this question and hope I am not asking it again.

It is not necessary to rollback the update. Firewater S-off can be used even with the latest OTA. I suggest moving over to the Verizon HTC One M8 forums here. You can find a video of the proper steps here, and a step by step tutorial here(make sure to use second method (weaksauce method)). Hope this helps!

As mentioned above you are all set to S-OFF your phone.

The latest OTA has been confirmed to not hurt root and confirmed to still work with firewater S-OFF tool.

The post above mine has great links.

Well I tried once again before updating and still nothing so I updated and it worked without a problem. Seems that I was on an old update not a new one. Thanks guys.
