Curious though- does firewater or any other methods allow you to turn it back to S on and remove the *TAMPERED* flag like revone does?
Also the kernel you posted says its for JB roms- I have KK.

Would creating a twrp backup of my stock rom and kernel, then installing a custom kernel to use firewater for S OFF, Could I return to the stock kernel via TWRP and would the phone remain in S OFF?

Yes Just be careful not to wipe your SD card (or copy it to your computer to be sure)

First, I was stuck at the white HTC Logo thing, and that was cause I was missing the radio somehow. I got the latest from here and flashed it in recovery.

Then I flashed this ROM.

Then I flashed this Kernel. <-- Important!

Then follow the firewater instructions, and it should work first time.

Let me know if you need help, OP, I might be able to help.

Pew, I wish I had stumbled across your thread much earlier! I have been attempting to S-off my Sprint M7 for three days with no luck on a ridiculous number of combinations! Your method outlined above was the first one to work and it took no time at all! Thanks for being a lifesaver bud.

No problem! I had just as much trouble as you did, nothing was working, but finally some combination did the trick. I hope this keeps helping people in the future.
