Why s-off if the bootloader is unlocked and the phone is rooted?
Do I still need to s-off if I already unlocked the bootloader and rooted the phone? What benefit is there to turning the security off? I have already flashed Venom and the phone is working great.
Thanks in advance for this novice question.

A Google Search with be your best bet to find more information about the benefits of S-Off.
But, in a nutshell, S-Off is the ultimate anti-brick status that you can get for your phone. It is really for those who are looking for more than just root. Being able to flash firmwares and run any RUU can prove to be a real life saver. It saved me several times when I was using my EVO LTE as my main phone.
