trying to go the temp-root method
this is what i get all the time.
i don't want to use the HTCDEV option to unlock the phone.
is there another way or just wait and hope?

Taken from Firewater page...

"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. This will typically only work on M7 and older devices with android version 4.3 or lower. Do NOT seek support if this temproot does not work for you."

Therefore it won't work on the M8
