I am despeartely in need of your help here guys, I got this brand new HTC one m8 from sprint and am stuck during the process of getting the s-off while following this guide thread to sim unlock the device. I kept getting this same output after following all the steps for rooted m8

Code:
C:\HTC\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20130522\sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
shell@htc_m8whl:/ $ su
su
root@htc_m8whl:/ # chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/firewater
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/firewater
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/firewater
root@htc_m8whl:/ # /data/local/tmp/firewater
/data/local/tmp/firewater
/data/local/tmp/firewater
root@htc_m8whl:/ #
thats all I get after following all the steps.
am so confused and stuck cause am sure without s-off I cant get it to work. and I kept getting this handsfree activation whenever I boot the phone. Please help

Did you do "adb reboot, then adb wait-for-device push firewater /data/local/tmp" before the other commands?

Also, if you did any updates with your OTA, this will not work!

I used Sunshine, and paid the $25 to have them help me, it was the best 5 mins of my life!
After you get frustrated and try Firewater a few dozen times... head over to theroot.ninja and pay the $25 dollars... TOTALLY WORTH IT!!

I fought and fought with adb, rooting, and s-off and Im well versed in adb etc. Just do yourself a favor, pay the $25 fee and go with sunshine. Its expensive but will save you so much headache
