Actually I think there is greater likelihood of bricking your phone when you have s-off. S-on is pretty tough to brick. S-off leaves your phone more vulnerable to corrupted flashes, particularly when flashing radios.

No question you have (or will have) more options to flash with s-off but right now with EXT4 recovery there's no real point to s-off. Personally, I'm going to wait.

I personally like the freedom you get from having S-off. but if you dont feel good about doing it, you can wait for an easier S-off solution. This is ICS for Tmo, so you only need S-off if you are on a different carrier. cuz you gonna have to Super Cid
