Default help with firewater problem

I'm trying to unlock and s-off..I've got everything setup for firewater im just trying to issue commands through cmd now.
When I type in
adb push firewater /data/local/tmp

it tells me that there is no such file or directory. I've put firewater on my desktop like someone said to somewhere and in a bunch of adb file that i thought might help...Where am i suppose to put firewater to make it readable by adb?

It should be in the same folder that contains adb. Otherwise you would need to add the full path with slashes in front of "firewater"

The file goes in your adb folder in platformtools. When you run the command it's looking for it there.

Doesn't matter which, for Windows you just right click the adb file and open the command prompt from the folder. Just make sure you're sticking the firewater file in the same folder adb is located. It automatically sets the directory.

You can keep trying but firewater may just not work for your phone luckily there is the $25 option created by the same devs called sunshine. This is an application you download and run here is the web address...theroot.ninja/

Firewater definitely won't work, you need to use sunshine.
