Default questions about "TAMPERED" and S-OFF

My M8 is bootloader unlocked and S-OFF

Now i want to remove the "TAMPERED" flag in bootloader. How to do that?
Is it possible to "lock" the bootloader again? If the phone is "locked" but still S-OFF, is it possible to flash rom, recovery, firmware etc. ?

What if i want to get S-ON again? How to do that?

1. No, you need to be unlocked to use a custom recovery
2. Yes, but you don't ever have to go back to S-ON anyway

Yes, as if it's locked you can't flash a custom recovery (well, there is a way but it's a ball ache to do)
