I definitely recommend getting S-off. I recently returned my EVO LTE to stock, ran the 4.13 RUU, rooted and gained S-off (again) using the Firewater exploit in roughly a minute's time. I was using 3.0 USB ports when I did it.

Well, I made my best attempts to use Firewater to no success. I followed the instructions exactly and things were looking good.. until it told me that "someone pissed in the firewater" and to reboot the device. I tried a couple of times and had no luck. Does the Android version matter or anything like that?

I'm running on the latest build of the Dirty Unicorn rom if that makes any difference.. Just thought I'd throw it out there again.

You should try using a closer to stock, sense ROM.

Flashed Viper4G and ran Firewater again... Got S-Off just like that. Thank you for the tip!
