Well I'm not sure if that's the case of the nv partition. Just a guess and a possible problem.

relock bootloader

root and install busybox
install 2 init recovery
make back on ext sdcard. and keep to safe place

(unlock the boot loader
flash whatever rom you like.
play with it for couple of days )

restore backup of rooted stock rom

this should also lock the bootloader again.
remove recovery
unroot the device
get your warranty back.

@er.davinder
Is this an idea?
Or that you even tried it and does it work?

I doubt it will work.
I still have CWM backup of stockROM on my SDcard and have been switching back-and-forth from some customROMs to stockROM and vise-versa.
If restoring backup of stockROM re-lock the bootloader, that would mean I can't use customROM anymore. But in fact; I can.
The only annoying thing after gets back from stockROM is my recovery got reverted to an older version.

I also installed busybox on stockROM, but no 2nd-init recovery.

@afronoia, @JulianJenner

I tried it thats why i am saying it .. it worked for me.

while making backup your device should have locked BL and stock recovery. Make sure you only backup using 2 init recovery for locked BL by artas.

after that you can unlock BL and install custom Roms.


and to relock it again you just need to restore the stock backup (w locked BL).
it should flash stock recovery and stock boot imgs and lock the BL again. Everytime I restore this backup it locks my bootloader.

it works I have tested it.

Read the very first post
Dunno if you know but the hidden menu doesn't work
It has always said bootloader status locked for me when its unlocked.
Software upgrade mode shows the true status bootloader unlocked.
What's with that

Yes. It is correct. S/W mode displays really BL status.
