Default Will turning off Unknown Sources break already installed non-Market apps?

Will turning off Unknown Sources break already installed non-Market apps? Might turning off allowing installs from Unknown Sources throw my Sprint Evo 3D into boot loops or worse since I have TWRP installed? As is known this will not allow the Masterkey & FakeID bugs. I have a rooted HTC Evo 3D running stock Sprint ICS 4.03 TWRP recovery & S-on. So can I uncheck allow install from unknown sources & turn it on when checking for updates from F-Droid? And still have functionality of all non-Market apps?

My further concerns are if the above won't work. That Exposed Framework needs S-off. When I rooted a year ago I couldn't find a way to S-off that I felt comfortable implementing.

Bluebox scanner shows my Evo 3D is vunerable to bugs 8219321, 9695860, 10148349 & 13678484. Using ReKey app shows my Device Secured. While Bluebox still shows the same 4 bugs. SRT AppScanner shows only bugs 8219321, 9695860 & a new bug 9950697.

I'm asking for help to plug these vunerabilities.

Following advice from another forum I did:
Uninstalled ReKey, Bluebox & SRT AppScanner. Not needed now that I unchecked allow install from Unknown Sources. So far so good.
