Yes, Global stock.

But I removed some apps that I don't want/use (most of them are extensions for twitter and flickr and such things) and I added some apps.

Root for locked bootloader but need to be unlock-able?!

If the BL is unlockable then it is useless to say it is for locked bootloader, if it's lock it's lock.
Once it is unlocked user can flash a pre rooted rom or kernel...

Can you try this for me? You'll find attached zip containing the file in the original post in page 1.

If you DO have full root, then you can install XZDualRecovery again and enjoy android.

Edit: uploaded the file, unzip (NOTE: it's NOT a flashable zip!) and copy it to /system/etc/init.d and give it permissions rwsr-xr-x
