Is it possible to re-lock and unlocked bootloader?

I know updating should get rid of an unlocked bootloader, but I still get the warning screen on bootup.

Reason I ask is because I had it unlocked, got an OTA update from Verizon for kitkat, and soft bricked my phone. Got stuck in a boot loop with the unlocked bootloader warning message.

I just flashed back to 4.0.4 using RDS Lite 6.1.4. Id like to reset the boot loader to locked before updating to kitkat again.

It's not possible to re-lock. I've updated to KK and can confirm that the BL is, in fact, still unlocked.

I have read somewhere that when you unlock the bootloader, it actually physically blows some kind of physical fuse. or maybe I miusread it.

Someone had made a special logo.img you can flash to get rid of that message.
Although if you really want a locked BL phone, I'd be more than happy to trade you.

Not that it helps, but in Australia, we do not get the nasty warning message after unlocking the bootloader. And I think that the phones are actually sold with an unlocked bootloader.
