Sorry to hijack but i asked a question in a different thread that never got replied to.
If I follow the root process and then flash a custom ROM, will I automatically unlock the bootloader? I want to keep this locked with the camera issues ive heard about
With unlocked bootloaders you can flash custom kernels and bring all that a custom kernel can bring you. True custom roms (Not stock based ones) but CM/AOSP etc as well as the possibility of OC/UC/UV, there is a whole host of advatages to custom kernels. Just take a look at any custom kernel thread in the original development section. None of that can be done on locked bootloaders
