Default does the sticker on the back need to be readable?

for a warranty claim?

My sticker is still on but its almost 100% white now. And my bootloader is unlocked (but still on the factory ROM) so should I relock it?

You can take off that sticker btw.

I'd relock it just to be safe and reset the tamperflag with bootunlocker, but google said themselves that rooted phones don't void the warranty if it's a nexus.

Keep in mind that if you need to unlock the bootloader again for any reason, it will wipe your data, but I guess you can do a backup and restore if you have a custom recovery installed. Definitely a wise idea though (especially in retrospect).

Can you point me to a reference to Google making this statement? It might come in handy if I run into warranty issues when I return my faulty device.

Sorry, I ended up not being able to find a link. I guess it was all in my head.
