Hi everyone, I have an Htc One (M7) still locked, original, not touched yet.
I want to unlock now, but I now I'll lose warranty, but I'm asking this:
If I unlock, ok I'll lose warranty (Is there any way to not lose?), but can I delete the message in bootloader relocked?
Thanks!

yes, you can revert to stock firmware through an RUU to claim warranty. U can remove the 'TAMPERED' flag and change 'RELOCKED to LOCKED'.
In short, u can revert to the EXACT same state ur phone came in.

BTW, u need S-OFF to revert ur phone 2 claim warranty

So now I unlocked my Htc, flashed recovery and I'm using a custom rom/kernel. Obviously I read Unlocked and Tampered...can I change this with Locked staying still with custom rom/kernel?

You need S-OFF to change back to LOCKED (not RE-LOCKED) and to remove the TAMPERED banner.

I'll recommend you to stay UNLOCKED as long as you will use a custom rom.

Ok thanks.
Other thing: is it possible dual boot like a sense rom and a miui/aosp?
