Taken from Firewater page...

"Instructions (temp-root method)

This method may allow firewater to work on a fully stock/htcdev locked device. This method is being provided as a convenience. This will typically only work on M7 and older devices with android version 4.3 or lower. Do NOT seek support if this temproot does not work for you."

Therefore it won't work on the M8

OnePlus One A0001 (Sandstone Grey) 64GB *** AWAITING DELIVERY ***

If you have a question, great - but DO NOT PM ME WITH IT!!! | [GUIDE] Return your EU M8 to 100% Stock (S-OFF Required) | [GUIDE] Return your OPO to 100% Stock
