Do I need to keep WeakSauce installed, after S Off?

No. You need to uninstall it along with SU, then flash Supersu.zip in your recovery.

Ok....I'm new to HTC, so I apologize for what may be stupid questions... I can certainly uninstall WeakSauce and SU, but installing Supersu.zip....first off, where do I get this file? Second, I enter recovery by holding down "volume down" while powering on the device, correct?

Do a Google search for chainfire supersu. Goto the xda thread and look for the flashable zip. And yes power vol down

it was in the above how to..

"Move the supersu zip onto your internal sdcard. It can be downloaded here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

You can use Superuser as well. Its your preference, but this guide uses SuperSU.
Uninstall weaksauce. It's no longer needed.
Uninstall SuperSU. It will be reinstalled when you flash the supersu zip. If you have SuperSU Pro installed, you can leave that in place, as that app only holds a key.
From adb, type:
adb reboot bootloader
Flash a custom recovery. Currently, only CWM recovery is available. Follow the directions here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708520
Reboot into Recovery
Flash the supersu zip you downloaded.
Reboot and you're done. You have s-off and permanent root.
You can delete the downloaded supersu zip off your internal sdcard; its not longer needed."
