Default [Q] Got S-On by mistake after being S-off, possible to go back?

I got my phone from T-mobile and i unlocked bootloader, rooted and S-off no problem. A couple days ago i updated the firmware to the latest 1.57.531.7. At the time i didn't know how hard it was to s-off new firmware. Using one of the toolkits, i tried to change to SuperCID and i think i accidentally clicked on the s-on button! Because when trying to change CID, i got an error. I booted to bootloader and it says "S-ON"

I tried doing firewater again but whelped out.

So now am i just stuck?
Can i tried to downgrade firmware to the one i had before and will that brick my phone?

You can downgrade firmware running a previous RUU or flashing a previous firmware zip or just the bootloader.

Yeah but the only RUU out is the 1.57 RUU, and S-Off doesn't work on 1.57
