Hello I have a chinese opo with cm11s installed.Whenever I run bootloader unlock it says time taken 0.00 sec
okay.Now Im not sure maybe the seller has unlocked the boot loader. Is there a way to know before flashing custom recovery?Thanks.Will flashing custom recovery on locked bootloader will brick my device?

No it will not brick your phone. If your phone's bootloader is locked, it will simply not let you flash a custom recovery. If its unlocked, then it'll flash the custom recovery.

Ensure that update CM recovery in developer options is disabled (to enable the menu, tap build # 10 times in about phone and then go back into developer options)
