. I havent gone back to gb from ics myself. I am not sure why s off is needed to go back. I think its becuase s off allows you to install different hboots (which is risky so be careful, always check md5 on your files). If your device loses hboot it will not boot I believe.
S off locked gives you total access to devices, kernel, hboot, splash screen, etc.
S on, but unlocked doesnt let you mess with hboot, which makes the device hard to brick. But also harder to go back to older firware.
Wifi tether works in Rez Rom 3.4 and others i'm sure. I have only tested it in that rom.
You need to have correct settings set in tether.
