Not sure where to post this. I have worked with roms many many times on android over the years without any trouble. I am on OSX macbook air with brand new HTC One M8 trying to S-OFF. No matter what I try I get this running ADB: "List of devices attached" EMPTY. Nothing listed.

WeakSauce rooted phone no problems.

1. HTC Sync connects to phone just fine.
2. Brand new Android SDK downloaded for use
3. Tried using sudo ./adb devices
4. Tried USB debug switch on/off
5. Tried USB unplug/replug
6. Tried phone on/off
7. Tried macbook on/off
8. System Profiler shows USB HTC device connected

What else can I do to make this work. Starting hour 5 of attempts. Any help much appreciated.

The HTC Sync app on your laptop should be removed. You only needed it to install the drivers, then per the Firewater instructions, Sync should be uninstalled. I don't know if that's what's causing your problems, but try it.

I did try that as well. Do I need to remove and restart? I will try that.

If you have installed the application EasyTether, this can interfere with ADB.

sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/EasyTetherUSBEthernet.kext

Boom! It worked.

Ahh, yeah... That was mentioned in the firewater instructions.:P

"All other phone software removed or disabled (Samsung Kies, PDANet, etc.)"
