If it says S-OFF, repeat STEPS 5 - 7 until it says S-ON.
(NOTE: If still showing S-OFF after a few flashes, go ahead and proceed to step 9. It may show S-OFF, but it is really set to S-ON. Once you flash the file, it should display S-ON.)

Had I known it needed to be back on S-Off to be able to Re-root it I would have found out how to do that before going forward with the repairs.

Does flashing back to a 2.2 version using the RUU method like shows work?

It would had they not updated you with s on. that should've updated your hboot to 2.16. S on is required to unroot fully. They may or may not have noticed or cared. either way with 2.16 and s on you are stuck, really sorry bud.
