Default [s-off]Firewater S-OFF

It claims to S-off any HTC device that is rooted/unlocked.

*Works with Hboot 2.47

Home
welcome to firewater
what firewater can do for you:
  • S-OFF Your HTC device
  • Unlock your bootloader


Prerequisites

  1. Working adb on your PC. Yes, that means OS X, linux, Windows, etc. are all supported.
  2. HTC drivers installed and working
  3. HTC sync removed (not closed – REMOVED)
  4. All other phone software removed or disabled (Samsung Kies, PDANet, etc.)
  5. A working internet connection ON YOUR DEVICE - wifi, 3g, 4g, etc. are all supported. There is no way around this requirement, don’t ask.
  6. USB debugging enabled on your device
  7. Your device must be HTCDEV unlocked/rooted or have a working temproot. A temproot that works with many modern (not all) HTC devices is provided below.
  8. Do not attempt to run firewater from a terminal emulator on your device. You MUST use adb along with a PC.
  9. A supported device. firewater *should* work with most modern QUALCOMM BASED HTC devices, including (but not limited to) the htc one, droid dna, one s, one max, and many others.

Instructions (normal, rooted device method)

Once you confirm you meet the above pre-requisites, it’s time to get started.
  1. Ensure device is booted to android with usb debugging enabled.
    USB 2.0 ports are preferred.
    You should not be connected using any hubs which may cause connectivity issues
  2. Ensure that lock screen security is disabled on your device.
    no passcode lock
    no pattern lock
    no face lock
  3. Download firewater HERE - _http://firewater-soff.com/firewaterdownload-3

    adb shell
    su
    chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/firewater
    /data/local/tmp/firewater

  5. Agree to the terms and conditions you are prompted with
  6. Allow the exploit to do its work.
  7. Profit



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. Do NOT seek support if this temproot does not work for you.
  1. Ensure device is booted to android with usb debugging enabled.
    USB 2.0 ports are preferred.

Default It worked!!!

Thanks a lot! It worked like a charm...
Tried rumrunner but without success. Firewater did it in under 30 seconds! Amazing!

I have a German Telekom based One Max with 2.46 hboot (T6UL).

Thanks for your work!
