I hoping I can get some clarification on this subject. I may have to take my phone into Sprint for either repair or new phone since it will not connect to the newly added 4G network in my area. So going back to stock my be needed for me to do so.

Since the RUU for the 4.4.2 update isn't available yet, is there a way to downgrade back to 4.3 so I can return back to stock? I did the OTA update in stock, then gained root access.

Does the process require me to turn S-Off? I'm currently S-On running Running Bad Boyz Sprint ONE KitKat v1.0.

If I go S-Off, is there a way to turn it back S-On? Not sure if Sprint will look at this setting.

Also, I have the update radio and hboot
HBOOT- 1.56.0000
RADIO- 1.00.20.1108
OS- 4.06.651.4

Will I have to downgrade my hboot as well?

Any help will be much appreciated

You're S-On. Your only option is to perform a factory reset, flash the stock recovery and re-lock your bootloader.
