Default LOCKED

Frankly, I don't read everything in this thread or the other S-Off thread in Development section,
so I am not sure whether you already have a way to have "LOCKED" status instead of "RELOCKED".

Requirements :
A properly working ADB/fastboot
Device is S-Off
ROM with SuperSU installed

1. my unlocked and S-Off One V

How to :
adb devices (see your ADB is working properly)
adb shell
su (only if you don't have # prompt)
echo -ne '\x00\x00\x00\x00' | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p7 bs=1 seek=32256
exit (maybe exit again if the command prompt is $)
adb reboot bootloader
check that you have "LOCKED" on the bootloader

3. change the S-Off to S-On

How to :
adb reboot bootloader (not needed if your device is on fastboot already)
fastboot reboot-bootloader (see your fastboot is working correctly)
fastboot oem writesecureflag 3
fastboot reboot-bootloader
check that you have S-On on the bootloader

4. Run RUU to go back to stock with LOCKED and S-On ... so the device is ready for warranty purpose
(I still have two month warranty for this device and I need to send it to HTC Centre because of network problem)
or in case you want to sell it with LOCKED bootloader.
