Hi Experts,

i had rooted my phone a while back and installed custom recovery , and was on stock ROM.
Due to issues on official emails, i had to unroot my phone and relock it.

All is fine, however i did miss 1 step, that is, i still have a diff recovery on it, and i want to install my stock recovery back so that i can install OTA.

I do have the stock recovery (i think).
So is theree a quick way to do that without unlocking the bootloader again or without losing any data?

Let me know PLEASE!

Regards
Manas

as i can remember even if your bootloader is unlocked as long as you have stock recovery you can update.. just make sure you have a backup of all your data.

No.
To flash recovery, your bootloader must be unlocked. Do you still have unlock.bin file?

As far as I remember you will lose data. Make a backup (Titanium, or similar app) of important data, unlock the bootloader, flash stock recovery, reboot, restore data.
And keep the bootloader unlocked!
