Do they care about S-OFF?? because if you intend on going S-ON, then I would highly recommend a 1.xx ruu, nothing higher.
because going from S-Off to S-On on hboot 1.55+, has been known to trigger "tamper detected - rebooting" and TAMPERED is back in bootloader screen.

Yeah, it's gonna need to be S-on when I take it into the store...
Pretty sure they check the bootloader for S-ON, ***TAMPERED*** and ***LOCKED***

Is it just the 1.55+ Hboot that throws the tampered when locked?
If so Can I flash the 1.54.401.5 Hboot from Firewater and proceed like that?

Can't do the 1.44, My PC is running 8.1 and I've not played with Linux since 2009

In that case, I recommend you use a 1.xx RUU
(check my guide in my signature)

Unknown when/what exactly triggers the "tamper detected" or some people have been able to S-On and not get that, others have not, so I can't say if it will happen or not. but if you wanna play it safe, go for 1.xx ruu.

brick alert: Definitely NOT, that is a custom HBOOT, if you actually manage to S-On it with an unsigned hboot, you'll have an paperweight on your hands!! stay away from that.
