Default [Q] S-ON or S-OFF ?

***UNLOCKED***
MARVEL PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT -1.08.0099
MICROP-0451
RADIO 7.53.39.03M

can anyone tell me if S-ON can affect the fact that I can not install what I want, not enough space.
I did :
1GB to EXT4
512 to SWAP
I also used LINK2SD but gave no results.

thank you all. I used google translator, sorry for bad eng

I think S-ON + Unlocked is enough for you.

With this, you can root your current rom or change rom and recovery, if you like.

Agreed. The only thing that S-OFF seems to be helpful for is updating your radio.

With s-off you can edit your mtd partitions to give more room for apps and you can flash roms without having to flash the boot.img afterwards. It also enables the ability to gain sim unlock and supercid allowing the flashing of any rom from any carrier for the wfs. and from a recovering perspective if you have s-off you can almost always repair any software issue as you can run any ruu.

There is also a tool for s-on unlocked with which you can set your superversion to 0 so you can flash every ruu. Anyways s-off let you partition you phone memory.
