Default back to s-on

*please note that this is only intended for warranty purposes. there are NO benefits of s-on,whatsoever. you can recieve OTAs,you can unroot,etc. while -off. staying s-off also offers greater flexibility for recovering soft bricked devices(even devices that may have been hard bricked with s-on),and it also ensures youll be able to easliy re-root in the future,despite exploit patches.

if youre doing it to sell the device,dont. 9 out of 10 uses wont even realize its there. it wont hurt phone function,and the 1 out of 10 that know what s-off means,will prolly be really excited to find it

__________________________________________________ __________________________________

WARNING!!!
DO NOT turn your secureflag on unless on a stock,signed hboot.

s-on with an eng signed or patched hboot will hard brick your device immediately.
(read: permanently bricked,unrecoverable)


in other words,ONLY use the writesecureflag 3 command AFTER running an RUU. never before.

how to turn s-on:





*verified working if you need it for warranty.
