Default Doomkernel questions

I've recently flashed this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448613 and was just wondering can I still update via Pc companion/SEUS to new firmwares/updates without losing the kernel, root etc...like will it replace the kernel with a stock one?

I'm a noob at Flashing and search didn't really answer my question.
If it's broke, use a hammer. If that fails, you're not using a big enough hammer.

If you have unlocked your bootloader by the official method at unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com, then you can not use PC Companion or SEUS to update firmware.

From what you said, I understand that there is an unofficial way to unlock the bootloader and still be able to use PC Companion and SEUS to update firmware?
Don't forget to hit the THANKS button! If I helped.

If your bootloader is unlocked, there is no way to use pc companion or seus to update firmware unless you relock it

Thankyou for the replies, I might try to relock my bootloader. I unlocked it through the official Sony method.

Not as far as I know. Older Xperia models had test point method, but Z1 does not have this option.

Has someone actually ruled this out? I mostly hear that people with LB go swap their phones or just make sure they're getting a UB phone in the first place. The main complication I see is compromising the waterproof gasket...

Unlocking bootloader doesn't have anything to do with waterproofness, it's something done using a computer.

Obviously. In order to access test points, the back cover will have to be removed. The back cover uses tape/gasketing to enforce waterproofing. My question was about whether someone has actually looked into a testpoint unlock yet for the XZ1.
