I know this wont reinstate my warranty...
Why? Because I want to. I understand you think it's useless but it's not your phone...
I have tried "fastboot oem lock" and it doesnt work...
I've searched Motorola's site, got on a chat with them which was useless, and searched xda...
So I booted into AP fastboot and connected to my computer. Opened CMD and typed "fastboot oem lock begin"
That seemed to start the process so then ran RSD lite (as admin) and flashed a signed xml of 4.1.2
Yes, I edited the XML first and removed the 2 lines with "getvar" in them
RSD finished and the phone rebooted (which was great because before it was hung up on the unlocked bootloader warning)
Unfortunately after turning the phone off and then back on, the unlocked bootloader warning screen still came up.
And after booting back into AP fastboot it still said UNLOCKED.
did i miss a step?
I need to relock the phone. if anyone has useful information it would be extremely helpful. in the event it just cant be done thats fine. but i feel like it can, because after fastboot oem lock begin the command prompted told me that now i can flashed the signed images.
well crap. i may have just answered my own question. do i have to flash manually through CMD (ie fastboot flash system system.img) AND THEN run fastboot oem lock at the bottom? i'll try it tomorrow.
before i started this the phone was stuck on the bootloader warning screen so if anyone is stuck at that point this will allow you to boot up your phone. and if my results are typical, it did not relock the bootloader (obviously). hope I helped someone. hope someone can help me. thanks.
