When ur phone has S-OFF (by xtc clip) u can flash any wildfire RUU of ur region (i mean downgrading hboot is also possible). Yes u can flash older RUU also, that's what u attempted to do with that WWE ruu.
Once u do S-OFF by xtc clip, then u can't get back to S-ON in any way. XTC clip directly wipes off the secure flag in the radio NVRAM. So, AFAIK, there is no way for u (by xtc clip) to get back to S-ON even when u flash an updated hboot.
But alpharev2 (not yet released for wildfire) will patch the hboot to make it think that the secure flag is off. So, if done by alpharev S-OFF is not permanent. When done S-OFF with alpharev, then if u flash an updated hboot, the phone returns to S-ON. This is not the case with u.
