Question about root + warranty

I hace an s-offed M8, with an unlocked bootloader.
However, it has an issue and needs to be returned to warranty.
If you're s-off you can remove all the tampered warnings and when you lock your bootloader it'll be changed to "locked" instead of relocked.
If I restore to complete stock and perform all these steps and undo the s-off, will HTC honour my warranty?
Or is your IMEI given to HTC when you unlock it through HTC DEV and they blacklist you?

Anyone with any experience regarding this would be much appreciated.

They know you unlocked. I would lock bootloader and leave it soff. Going s-on throws a tampered label. If they try to charge you just argue that you are not unlocked and they must prove that unlocking broke your phone. If you are in the US you should be good. Harder if you are in another country.

Ya you shouldn't have problem.But you shouldn't try to go to s-on this may cause problem.Just change the label to Locked and restore nandbackup/Stock rom and you are good to go!
