Do you HAVE to have S-OFF to be able to flash custom ROMs?

I have successfully unlocked my bootloader by using the HTCDEV method and running TWRP recovery and have root access.

Although I have all this, do I still have to have S-OFF for this to work. My screen in recovery mode says "TAMPERED" "UNLOCKED" and "S-ON" at the top, will this be okay to flash CM11?

Thanks Guys

Thanks mate. I'm all up and running with this now. Just have one problem, I flashed Gapps, and it won't let me access the play store and keeps popping up with error messages saying it can't connect to the google servers, won't let me use search or anything...

Clear the data and cache for play store and services then reboot.
