S-off disables the protection feature including being able to unlock your phone from your service provider ( if it happens to be).
I just needed write access to system to make updates easier (adaway, ad-hoc enabler, etc)

That's good news then since the reason I wanted S-OFF is so I can install stuff or remove stuff from the ROM I am currently using without manually removing and installing the apps onto a ROM from my PC then install it on the phone.
I'm now using S-ON Unlocked and AdAway didn't crash so it's working for me now.
The sole reason I wanted to root now works.
2 years wait but finally it works, I can now store my alarms, ringtones on the phone and don't have to worry about using USB diskdrive without losing the ringtones since the SD card is in use.
