Well let me first off say i'm feeling really dumb atm.
Just bought my wife the new m8 , I've already s-offd and perm rooted mine but for some reason im having trouble getting the commands to work for hers .
im using a mac btw but like ive said i did successfully do this on this exact setup


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


do i actually put the data local tmp part in or am i supposed to be putting in my local directory where i have the file on my computer
when i adb devices , i can see my device, so it is connected
in adb when i " adb reboot" it does reboot my phone
but when i try to push the firewater file it does not push , i get this

cannot stat 'firewater': No such file or directory

firewater file is in my adb folder on my desktop and its the right size etc etc .

thanks in advance if anyone can tell me what im doing wrong!!!!

Hmm. Are you copy pasting the messages? Make sure you don't have any spaces in wrong places. Maybe try a factory reset on said device. Just confirming firewater and adb are in the same directory?

Click on weaksauce to make sure it is still working and you may have to click on a prompt and then try ADB again after that.
