Default Other ways to S-OFF besides using Juopunutbear

My HBOOT version is 1.27. For some reason I can't seem to successfully get passed installing the required stock Sense ROM that Juopunutbear requires. Is there any other possible way for to S-OFF if I am on a Kit Kat ROM? Any tools that can S-OFF?

Forgot to add that I am HTC Dev unlocked.

Since I am HTC Dev unlocked, is there any way to get back to stock without flashing a zip? Would I be able to flash an RUU and still maintain my unlocked status?

No you need to relock your bootloader to flash RUU , but don't worry after you s-off you will flash 3.33 firmware and that will ulock you bootloader and after that flash recovery and do what you wanna do..
Btw why do you need to s-off?

I mainly just want to update to firmware 3.33 Universal (found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1459767). Can you link me to an RUU that will allow me to S-OFF. I am also assuming that there is no other way to S-OFF besides using Juopunutbear's method?

You can't flash a custom firmware while s-on (it's the reason htc named this state s-on). There's simply no way unless you can pull off JTAG and sh**.
You can get 3.33.xxx.xxx via RUU (only after locking bootloader), but you can't flash 3.33 universal otherwise. If you want to switch carriers, you gotta s-off man.
Jam that THANKS button. It only takes one finger.

I'm trying to flash the 3.32 ROM located in this how to thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1614617

Every time I flash it I get the white HTC logo and then a black screen until I pull the battery. I am using 4ext recovery.
