I'm running into the same problem and I need it badly.
If you do flash .13 without S-off you basically will have no way to flash the firmware and could be without audio from the stock music app.
Wow it's been a long night. This is a learning process for me. I've never come to a new phone so quickly so I'm getting used to the fact that development takes time and I need to be patient. I pretty much soft bricked my phone last night. Ended up deleting my system partition and had to pull some tricks to even get back into a bootable rom. I took one of the TWRP stock restores and reverted all the way back to 1.12.651.17. Then I fastboot flashed the stock recovery from 1.54.651.8 and took the OTA update so now I am completely back to stock....FEW...avoided a trip to the sprint store. I now understand that since I don't have S-OFF yet, I should flash any software versions over .8. In order to have a fully working .13, I'm sure the firmware is required as well (most likely the reason why my audio wasn't working for some of the ROMs). However, I'm still stuck with the issue in the picture below. I need to get S-OFF so I can flash the firmware 1.54.651.8, including the Hboot, Is it possible to flash an Hboot.img without being S-OFF?
#firewater is the IRC channel for the S-OFF by the way.
Also why is my radio and open dsp showing invalid-ver-info?
Anybody please help?
And something is really messed up because now my vibration won't work. No idea what is going on I just badly need s-off.
