Default HTC Repair Process

I had the M7 and sent it in bone stock for the purple camera issue.. I now have the M8 and need to send it in to have them look at my camera lens issue (lens distortion/scratches). I had a dialogue with HTC's Jason Mackenzie on Twitter and he told me it would be taken care of.. (praying).

Here is the thing.. this time around I got WeakSauce root and used Firewater to S-off.. I already re-installed the stock recovery and splash.zip.
I am still on stock ROM right now. I was told the it is OK to be unlocked for a cosmetic issue as long as i don't have any 'unsupported software' on the device (I guess because they do a factory reset when they get it).

Is there anything else anyone thinks I am missing before I send this baby in to HTC?

Thanks in advance!

If you're S-Off I would just lock the bootloader with scotty123 guide. Why risk an unlocked bootloader it takes less than a minute to put in a couple adb commands. When you get it back you can unlock it just as easily. Is there a tampered flag on hboot? Or red text on splash screen?

No tampered flag on Hboot, no red text on splash screen. I thought S-off was already unlocked? There was no HTCdev unlock on my Verizon version. It was blocked by Verizon.

I have T-Mobile so I had to unlock bootloader first then S-Off. Looks like you're good to go then. What does it say on you're hboot at the top? Locked or unlocked? Didn't you have to unlock bootloader to flash a custom recovery or does being S-Off bypass that requirement?

S-off apparently unlocks the boot loader. It says unlocked but I never unlocked it.

You can just lock it again using the good by Scott1223 and leave s-off. Once you get it back you can quickly unlock it again and flash custom recovery.
