I'm following this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2358738

I flashed the ruu successfully, but now I'm trying to remove the tampered flag and relock the bootloader but I need to have su installed. I am unable to install it because I lost root apparently? SuperSU says that it's unable to install the binaries and I cannot install them.

Can anyone help?

All you need to do is connect to fastboot USB and open command and type fast boot OEM lock and you'll relock the boot loader.

Thanks for the quick reply. So just to make sure, the command is "fastboot oem lock"?

Also, will this get me back to s-on?

SO pretty much I'm unlocked with s-off, but no root.

Yep if you have flashed the stock RUU and no longer have SU then all you need to do is reboot into Boot loader and click Fastboot then open a cmd window and type in "Fastboot oem lock" and that will relock the bootloader to s-on.

I had to do the same thing last week to send fiances phone to get fixed because of the camera issue and accidently sent it in unlocked 😊 and they allowed me to relock it and send it in again without destroying my warranty.

Alright, again, thanks for the help.

The bootloader is locked, but it says "relocked" instead of "locked" in hboot. Not sure if this is an issue or not.

However, it still says "S-OFF". Am I good to do ota updates? The microphone stopped working on my phone so I'm trying to get it back up to the latest OTA before I take it in.

Yes you can take an ota while s-off and unlocked. You just need stock everything else.

@cmlusco I don't think it is supposed to say relocked right?
