You can relock but the bootloader will indicate that it previously has been unlocked.

I'm not sure if the Moto G is like the Moto Atrix HD but unlocking the bootloader blows one or more fuses which can't be fixed. Maybe the Moto G is the same?

Interesting reading. If motorola were ever to stop issuing bootloader unlock codes it could potentially be hacked.

I had an Atrix HD for about 5 days before I decided to unlock the bootloader in order to load a custom rom. I tried locking the bootloader to no avail. Not a big deal since it didn't cost me anything when I did a hardware upgrade and the phone has been rock solid.

The Atrix HD is a great phone with the right rom.

The Moto G's stock looks very much like an AOSP rom.
