What this means is Verizon HTC One owners running Android 4.3 can S-OFF and unlock their bootloader to flash any partition. This bypasses Verizon’s stupid policy of blocking the HTCDev.com website tool which owners of other carrier models use to unlock the bootloader. Yes, now you can have custom ROM’s too!
These guys are awesome for bringing this. If firewater is something that helps you get S-OFF on your HTC, please consider donating on their page. Files and instructions are at the Firewater S-OFF website.
