Edit: Got it working. Thanks for all the help

Need some help. I've been trying to S-off my Max but I'm unable to. I've tried Firewater and I get no error. It just says opening bottle 1, chugging, then goes right back to command line.

Rumrunner gives me an error about extracting files. I have everything setup in my platform tools folder.

I am on Hboot 2.46, Sprint Max. I'm unlocked by htcdev, rooted, and twrp recovery installed. I really need to figure out how to s-off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you sure you have the correct drivers installed completely? When I did it I hit problems and it turned out that my drivers were not installed completely.

I installed htc sync manager, got the drivers from there because adb wasn't recognizing the device, once it was recognized, i uninstalled htc sync manager like the instructions for firewater and rumrunner say, went through the firewater instructions and nothing. I then tried rumrunner and get the error.

I installed HTC sync and left it installed, just disabled it once I plugged into the usb. Then I ran through the rumrunner forum. Beyond that, I really can't say since I'm not a dev or a programmer.

Thanks for taking the time to try and help. I've been working at this for about 3 hours now and it's driving me crazy.

You sure you installed fastboot and abd properly? Here is the installation files for both:

Try reinstalling again may help.

Yes. I just had to stop putting the rumrunner files in the platform tools folder. Made an s-off folder, then put platform tools and rumrunner folders in it and it worked like a charm.

After verifying that fastboot and adb worked properly, I just followed the
section for stock, locked devices, like Verizon's.

push temproot, push firewater,
adb shell
chmod 755 both files
run the temproot file (takes a long time)
run firewater, everything worked.
