it could be done for unlocked bootloaders but if you're thinking of trying it for locked bootloaders it can't be done since we have a 4.3 kernel, so you can port a 4.3 ROM theorectically

Thanks for answer. Can I unlock bootloader without removing folder "data"?

unfortunately you can't, /data partition will always be wiped when unlocking the bootloader

If I will unlock bootloader, all my apps, games saves and settings would be removed, yes? Can I simply copy folder "data" before unlock and replace copied folder after unlock? Or won't it work? Sorry for my English.

as far as I know you can backup with this without root: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ikdutta.backup

you can use titanium backup with root and backup your apps with that.

then restore after you have unlocked the bootloader
