fastboot oem lock
So much ignorance in this thread. Why would anyone forget the password hmm? IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE TO BE DIFFICULT, just difficult enough for a FENCE(not the thief) to recognize that its not the OEM lock and its not wide open and OMG how do I sell this? CONTACT THE OWNER and pray they offer a fiver for the stolen goods you have no right to demand a reward for!
Using fastboot its possible to re-enable the OEM lock. It shouldn't be too far a stretch to setup a custom password fastboot lock, and from there set up CWM or whatever recovery environment to recognize the OEM lock is in place and refuse to install zip files or wipe data without the fastboot password. One of these is on the dev/mod/hacker community. There is simply no reason not to have something resembling a password in CWM. I wouldn't be surprised if the same community could also mod fastboot, but I can't say its their responsibility either.
Dear lord though people. Every other post in this thread opposes password locks at all. Suddenly, honor among thieves is not locking your own doors? I mean, what other environment asks everyone entering to please remove all weapons and lockables besides a thieves den? ... and one run by idiots who hate pracice at that?
