I feel your pain. It seems that the newer ROMs almost require S-Off now for ease of installation, mainly due to the need of having updated firmware. I've never understood where the line is drawn between ROMs being 'based' off certain firmware, compared to the firmware actually installed on the phone (visible in Bootloader). Apparently they can be mixed-and-matched to a point? With Firewater now discontinued, it is getting very difficult to obtain S-Off, especially if (like me) you are on HBoot 1.57. I don't really care about being S-Off as long as I can update the firmware some other way like fastboot flashing an img file, but I don't know (a) if it would work, and (b) if it would it fubar my existing ROM?
