ALTHOUGH if you wish to go back to s-on, flash an RUU of your choice first. As when you do write secureflag and a few reboots on an ENG hboot, you could brick.

Leave the hboot they give you. The tag might be annoying but it is better than having to re-unlock to use fastboot commands.

Why is un- re locking not ideal? It takes 2 minutes.

Scotty posted earlier if your S-OFF then unlock and relock again it will alway show relocked again unless you RUU then S-ON and then S-OFF again. If you S-OFF and don't unlock it and RUU it will say locked but its best to use the patched hboots supplied to be able to use certain fastboot commands that way you don't have to unlock and not have a problem with it saying relocked.

Aside of the text difference on the bootloader and potential warranty comprimising, is there any other downfall?

I'm not trolling or trying to start a argument, but if that's a big deal to you to have the pink junabear banner across your hboot screen then you should have never s-off. I mean really. Who sits there and stares at the hboot screen and decides that it doesn't look good. Lmao.

Especially when the stock hboot uses the same color banner but says locked instead?
