My questions are:
- Does S-Off prevent you from taking OTAs?
- Can OTAs change S-Off status?
- Are there any self-contained resources explaining S-Off that I could read to be less dumb about it?
I would never take an OTA but I don't think it can change your status back to S-On
Just Google "S-Off Explained" but here is in xda link on the subject---> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...40&postcount=1
I also advise if you're new at this to read all you can before flashing anything. You can brick your device more easily with Security Off.
