Hi, a few weeks back i relocked my bootloader using flash tool as i was going to sell the phone and wanted OTA updating working. However i am now keeping the phone and whenever i try to unlock the bootloader using either sonys official method or flash tool it gives me a error and if i try again it tell me that the device is already rooted. As it stands the device is totally stock. Any ideas how to unlock the bootloader?

Thanks

EDIT: these are the errors i recieve

I had exactly same problem as you and the only thing that finally helped me was to restore TA, then unlock bootloader with sucess

The better solution is to just restore the file structure within flashtool's directory, which is the solution I pointed the user to in my previous post
