Quick question, once one gains s-off would there be any reason one might need to turn it back on?
TIA

Only reason I would is if your sending it in for service/exchange.

I have s off, will anything automatically return my phone to s On status? Like doing a RUU, installing ROMs ota updates?
Will I be required to unlock the boot loader if I return to stock, or does s off ensure I won't need to?
TIA

Once your s-off it stays that way. RUU does reinstall stock hboot & stock recovery however s-off remains. Most people that do s-off will never turn it back on unless the phone is going in for warranty service.

Thanks, Will RUU require me to unlock the bootloader with S off?

If I remember correctly you may have to relock your bootloader to run an RUU. Think of it this way, once your s-off you can do whatever you want to do. Upgrade/Downgrade hboots, splash screens, radios, run any ruu you want it's way better. As long as it shows s-off your good to go & it shouldn't ever come back on unless you turn it back on. Although I heard it is possible that HTC may be able to trigger an s-on with say an OTA update but I have never heard of that actually happening on any model HTC that I'm aware of.

Thanks, so S on, S off doesn't matter, you will still have to relock the boot loader to RUU, correct?

I have not ran an RUU on my ONE yet, but I have run MANY RUU's on other phones, you do NOT need to relock bootloader to run the RUU, you must be S-OFF to run an older RUU or to downgrade, after the RUU, your bootloader will be LOCKED but still remain S-OFF, this is how it worked for me on every other phone I have done, I can't imagine why the ONE would be any different....
