Just trying to get s off on international m8. Phone is unlocked and have root access with super su. Have all the steps for getting a off. But when trying to push firewater for those who did it already the second line of command. It says cannot stat firewater. Now the firewater file is on the platform tools folder where it should be.

I even copied the file to the phone and to the data/local/temp folder as well but still no luck. Driving me mental

Only other thing I can ser is people saying delete the .bin extension at the end of the firewater file but I can't see any on the phone or on the pc

Either in doing something stupid or just don't bother with it. But I want it to unlock SIM

Try ignoring this and finish typing all the commands, then wait for a while and you should eventually be prompted. This was my experience at least.

Also, unless you have already done so, do not install the last OTA update until you are done, it has been reported to block firewater.

1.57 OTA does block firewater on my phone. Wish I had read this first

Are you sure this is the problem? Firewater doesn't work on all phones, regarding of OTAs. Does it give you the 'whelp' message, does it exit abruptly or what else? In the first case it shouldn't depend on the OTA.

Whelp here. Tried a couple dozen times, and with a file transfer too. Never got to a bottle.
