I had a lot of difficulty getting s-off on 1.57 with Firewater. Tried a lot of different kernels with no luck. Then I flashed CM11 and it worked first try.

couldnt get s-off

I had a lot of difficulty getting s-off on 1.57 with Firewater. Tried a lot of different kernels with no luck. Then I flashed CM11 and it worked first try.

I couldn't get s-off any kernel and I tried to instal CM11 but failed to install it. I have only been able to install Viperone and revolution but with them and any kernel,
I couldn't get s-off with Firewater.
Can you help me out ??

You should try as the dev. @beaups says that has nothing to do with emmc CID. If you get the message "whelp this sucks........Firewater cannot work on your device" then the only solution for your device is SunShine http://theroot.ninja/ but you must pay 25$ for it as I did.

Hi,
I got also a-off with 1.57 and originally stock rom 4.4.2 and bulletproof 14.2 kernel. I think it's very important to use the same radio in the firmware. Then step by step firewater installation and first-time s-off...good luck guys

I'm having the same issue described by adeel343. Did u manage to work that around? I`ve tried a lot of different ROMs but the upper side of touchscreen doesn`t work at all. I`m on HBOOT 1.57, my cid is HTC__622, and my version is M7_UL PVT.

Does anyone know how to fix this touchscreen issue?

    It very easy...
    First you must change kernel in elementalx 14.11 not other
    Then. S-off your device with firewater... I succeed with this method

    Of course, there is no way I'm also paying $25 for S-Off. It is too pricey for my pocket.
    I am with hboot 1.57 and my only current option is SunShine but will never pay those greedy devs.
    Will stay with S-On 'till the end of time or better, I will wait for a free solution if any will appear at all.

    F__k you jcase ;)

    I see a lot of post claiming that the got S-off on Hboot 1.57, next I see someone trying the same method and geeting error. I am visiting every single page claiming S-off on Hboot 1.57 and it is very frustrating. I have tried a number of method and failed. I also see some guys posting in every single thread about a $25 method. Are they getting paid?? Is it some kind of passive advert.
    Desperate to get my M7 Ul (Hboot 1.57) S-OFF.. :(

    I gave up as well. There's no way I'm paying $25. As long as I can flash the top tier Roms, I'm good to go.
    I'm sure there is another way to s-off with 1.57 but right now there is no clear path on how to do it right.

    The only way to s-off hboot 1.57 currently is by using Sunshine.

    Thanks for answering, but i'm sure developper(s) from sunshine are not the only one(s) talented enough to make it ;)
    so, i still hope, and still working on it by myself :)

    cheers
