Default Help bootloader locked

I flashed miui ROM coming from purity to test it, but now I'm not able to restore my backup because I can't access to cwm.. On the bootloader page it says that now my bootloader is locked.. Why? And what I have to do now?

go into your recovery, not bootloader.

Watching better I saw that my BL is unlocked still.. So I guess that I just have to reflash cwm @adb right ?

if you go to the android laying on its back, that's the stock recovery. all you have to do is flash a custom recovery, i recommend the twrp recovery, not cwm.

I'll second the recommendation for installing TWRP instead of CWM. It's a much nicer interface overall.

Are you rooted? If so you could install BootLoader from Play, press unlock, and then flash a custom recovery to restore your backup.

kwPhone6: Google Nexus 5 D821: Android 4.4.4 Stock ROM, Franco kernel r61, PhilZ touch recovery
kwPad2: LG G Pad 8.3 V500: SlimKat 4.4.2 Linaro (Infected_ build), PhilZ touch recovery
kwPhone5: Galaxy S III i9305: SlimKat 4.4.4, PhilZ touch Recovery
kwPad ASUS Transformer Eee Pad TF101: SlimKat 4.4.2, TWRP

Use an app called "Flashify" to flash either recoveries mentioned. Super easy
