Well first of all, i don't know if you really need S-Off at this point, but that is a decision only you can make.
On the other hand whether my reply is silly or not, you asked a specific question: [ERROR] - HBOOT 1.44 - s-off using revone
so i suggested
1- hboot 1.44 dated before June 2013
2- firmware 1.xx (from "fastboot getvar all")
to use the ROM i mentioned, because it's worked for over 30 people by now.
But you can always:
1- continue to try revone until it works or not
2- try http://rumrunner.us/
which also has a Windows version, since you can't seem to make linux to work
3- try http://firewater-soff.com/
