As another person not familiar with HTC android devices, I understand your confusion. However, before I answer, I'll mention that this thread belongs in the Q&A section - AND that the answer is easily found with google (in this case, a plain google search is better than searching XDA.)
Here's your answer: https://www.google.com/search?q=what...=what+is+s-off
(From what I've read, S-Off turns off HTC's s
ecurity mechanism that overwrites any changes you make to protected partitions on each boot.)
