Default [Q] Remoing Bootloader and flash

Hello people.

i successfully managed to unlock the boot loader and flash my device, can any point me in the direction of where i would go to remove this? as i need to update to JB 4.1 but everytime i try and do this is boots the phone to the root tw.....

and im a real novice when it comes to phones

any advice would be appreciated

would doing a factory reset via TWRP lock the bootloader? and will i still be able to use the phone? im not really bothered about the unlock and flash

To do the OTA you need to flash the official recovery do the ota and then reflash twrp. No need to lock the bootloader.

Download this file

http://db.tt/U5CK4noo

Rename it to recovery.img and copy it in the fastboot folder of the pc, then you put the phone in the bootloader/fastboot usb mode.

Open the command window on the pc inside the fastboot folder and type

Fastboot erase cache (enter)
Fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (enter)
Fastboot erase cache (enter)

Make sure that the file is actually in the folder from where you execute the commands ! And maybe a reboot of the pc, and phone will help

The phone should be in the bootloader, and you should see the text fastboot usb in red !

Yes im doing that,

I have placed the renamed file - recovery.img in the data folder where the fastboot is, the path on cmd is pointing to the exact folder
