you can s-off using firewater for hboot 1.56, sometime it works, sometime it don't.
you can still have ota updates if you restore the missing files for ota and you flash back the stock recovery.
or some custom roms are always up-to-date and not much different from a stock rom look (i.e ARHD)
you can always send the phone to fonefunshop.com and have it s-off'ed via a java card. then you'll be able to do a full ruu
