here are my reason to believe boot-loader is locked.
1. I installed Chinese CWM it worked fine but after reboot i was back to stock recovery...
2. installed TWRP blank screen but after reboot back to stock...
3. nobody got source build kernel working....
I,m pretty much sure bootloader is locked. trying unlock method of nexus 5 right now
