Default S-OFF Failed?

I've followed the instruction of firewater s-off.

After successfully pushed 'firewater' to /data/local/tmp and changed the permission to 755, I've typed '/data/local/tmp/firewater' but nothing happened.

It's the same problem under Windows 7.

Whats more, the file 'firewater' in /data/local/tmp disappeared automatically after '/data/local/tmp/firewater' has been executed.

Another question was that I had never entered 'su' after 'adb shell', but still got root permission?

Tried with both my MacBook Pro and desktop computer and got exactly the same results.

Same issue, after adb push, I don't get SU request and everything else goes quite.

Some people have said using a different Superuser app gives a better result so perhaps change and see how you get on
