You only need s-off for the method given at the top this thread (to return to stock). However
, the method in this thread is long obsolete. There are more up-to-date methods to return to stock (Euro version) that do not require s-off. I've addressed this several times in this thread. I wish folks would read the updates (skim through the last few pages of the more recent posts) on a thread, before following instructions that are over 4 years old! It's really just common sense to do so.
You do NOT need s-off to flash the signed RUU intended for your (Euro) device. Which can be found (with instructions) here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...26&postcount=6
In many cases, it is not recommended to change your CID and flash other version RUUs (for other regions). Doing do will change the phone's band support, and possibly break or otherwise affect the connectivity you have with your local carrier. Unless of course, the specific intent is to change the band support.
