Currently I have an M7 UL on 4.4.2 with Sense 5.5. Its rooted and the bootloader is HTC Dev unlocked. I tried to S-OFF with firewater but I keep getting infinite lines so I gave up and I'm still S-ON

I'm not really bothered about the S-OFF anymore but would like to remove the ***TAMPERED*** bit thats there.

Also I have a few questions:
1) As I didn't try to do anything else my phone should be fine, right?
2) I want to install the ElementalX Kernel, Is it possible with S-OFF?
3) Can I still update using OTA's?
4) What are the methods to revert completely to stock with no root or unlock?

Since I'm new I hope you can help me with these questions. Thanks.

Removing ***TAMPERED*** requires S-OFF!

Going back to stock: (100% Stock also requires S-OFF)

You can still receive OTAs, but must be on STOCK Recovery.

Try Rumrunner. Also try Firewater again make sure you follow directions. Rumrunner worked for me.

try different roms and different kernals to get s-off, some people get it on stock, others don't, some have reported first try, other say they had to flash 10 different rom and kernel combinations.

Myself, I did it in one swift move by java card which I had to pay for.
