I'm using a new out of the box Verizon HTC One M8, Android v4.4.2, software version 1.12.605.11, Sense v6.0. I've managed to get root with WeakSauce easily enough. But I have to wait about 30 seconds after reboot for root to return after doing adb reboot from the Firewater instructions.

Once root returns, which is always does, I try running firewater and it just drops back to the command line, does nothing at all.

Any ideas? I could really use some help!

I had to use my Windows machine (was trying on a Mac) to do it, then it worked. It shouldn't matter, but it did.

There is nothing about Windows that adds any magic to the process. If anything, dealing with drivers adds another level of complexity. I have used Firewater S-off from Linux with no issues.

Thanks - that's the guide I followed and eventually got it all working

the weird thing on the mac is firewater downloads as a generic document instead of a unix executable file - once I changed that it worked correctly
