I have a LOCKED bootloader and I would prefer not to bother with unlocking if possible, but its starting to look like I might have to unlock on these later android versions just to return to stock?
Update: I'm impatient...
I tried flashing the .30 a 2nd and 3rd time and in the third time it took like a charm. I'd say try to adb the .30 a few times and see if it completes. I too was locked and on .18 and once the .30 took I didn't even have to finish the steps in this thread. The ota "check for updates is unavailable" message stopped, and 4.4.2 dl'd and installed no problem.
N.B.: if you are on .18 or .30 you can't unlock bootloader is my understanding (which blow, I really miss good custom ROMs). Also, once .30 flash takes you will have lost root, worked for me. Let me know if you have any questions.
