Restoring TA backup = relocking the booloader

I don't think there is any other way to relock the bootloader, so how would you like to relock it? :P

Thanks for the reply I was going to use Flashtools to relock it. Cause of the camera issue I thought locking bootloader and restoring TA where completely separate from each other.

Also if you don't mind I'm on 4.3 unlocked with DooMKernel v4 and want to flash stock kernel how do I do that and where do i get. A guide on xda said if I want to relock I had to flash stock kernel.sin using Flashtool I don't know how to do that all I is how to flash a kernel using fastboot which requires me to have the .sin file which I don't know where to get it.

The stock kernel is inside the ftf of the firmware, so just select the firmware in flashtool and on the right hand-side you will see a list of contents of the ftf that you are about to flash (system.sin , userdata.sin, kernel.sin and so on) . Exclude anything that you don't need to flash under the exclude tab.

Just a word of advise, make sure you relock the bootloader on the same version of the firmware that you made the backup on. So if you backup up TA on 4.2.2 relock it on 4.2.2. There seem to be some people that have had issues when they tried to relock on the newer firmware.
