Flashtool. But really if you are not comfortable with fastboot and adb please read more before you try messing with your phone

root and backup your TA partition now.

Then leave it unlocked.

Just flash what ever FTF you want. (any generic version will do)

unlocked bootloader wont make any difference from now on. No point in locking it unless you have a waranty claim.

Ta is a unique set of keys basically. It's static so remains the same no matter what rom, kernel or baseband you flash.
