Doesn't work either. You have to unlock the bootloader, flash the custom recovery and then root it. You can then go through the S-OFF guide

I unlocked bootloader by htc dev. Then flashed TWRP.
Actually, after booting into TWRP, i flashed the SuperSU.zip..... So isnt it ok as per the guide? And then i tried S Off.... But got this error.

Ah right! OK, then it should work unless you've not corrected allowed SU access on the phone when it asks

I can't, it all worked fine for me so I've not had to do it since. All I can say is follow the guide on the firewater site to the letter...

Taken from http://firewater-soff.com/instructions/

Ensure device is booted to android with usb debugging enabled.
USB 2.0 ports are preferred.
You should not be connected using any hubs which may cause connectivity issues
Ensure that lock screen security is disabled on your device.
no passcode lock
no pattern lock
no face lock
Download firewater HERE
Push, Prepare, and Execute firewater:

adb reboot <–important!!!!
adb wait-for-device push firewater /data/local/tmp
adb shell
su
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/firewater
/data/local/tmp/firewater


Agree to the terms and conditions you are prompted with
Allow the exploit to do its work.
Profit
