You can relock the bootloader with flashtool, check out my guide. But why would you want to do that

Hi Friends,
I'm trying to unloack my Z1C using the latest verson of flashtool and after connecting it in flashmode it will not display the window showing model numbers and display a window asking to switch off and connect again in flashmode.
I've tried it on 3 PC's, still not unlocked the Bootloader. What is the difference between unlocking bootloader from Sony official method and Flashtool method. Please guide me.
Regards
Shashi

Iirc the first unlock has to be done the official way, then you can (re)lock using flashtool. And the correct drivers have to be installed of course.
