You can relock to try your luck and they just might not care if you are lucky.

Be very careful with locking bootloader though, locking your bootloader in a wrong way (wrong firmware, not flashing all files, downgrading) will create a big mess. In my opinion, stay away from locking bootloader!

thank you man, btw can you help me with rooting by flashing cwm ?

You need working adb and fastboot drivers.
Download here:
http://www.mymotocast.com/download/MDM?platform=windows (drivers)
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1S0...Wh6NGJmSE1BUWc (minimal adb and fastboot files)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2563599 (cwm download)

Guide:
1. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...38&postcount=6 (For unlocking bootloader)
2. After unlocking (which will be equal to a complete reset, no files left in your "sd card"), boot into fastboot mode again and use this command:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.7-falcon.img (or whatever is the name of recovery image file)

or use this tool:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2635706

You can also use that too to push supersu to sd card or manually place it. Reboot to recovery (adb reboot recovery) and flash that zip file.
