I unlocked my AT&T M8 shut it down before installing the recovery and making the nandroid. What is my next move, do I have to relock it and start over or is there a way to continue?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much Sir. This happened three days ago I have been searching for 63 hours. Found nothing definitive, which would tell me how to proceed. If at all possible could you link me to the required reading?

I read just enough to be dangerous
I have my phone rooted and unlocked thanks to this site and its many contributors. I was reading everything in sight. The mistakes I made was not reading deep into the info enough, I would arm myself with just enough info to be a danger to myself. All I had to do was continue. So thanks for all the reading materials and thanks to this site for being here.

Nice work reading, and working through it and troubleshooting. Trust me you will learn way more from doing it yourself than from having someone hand it all to you on a silver platter. This community is always more than willing to help you, but will be much more happy to do so if you've read. Glad you got your phone back working! Happy rooting/flashing/modding welcome to XDA
