Even after unlocking your device`s bootloader, it still remains as it was- stock,
the only difference is, that it is unlocked now-
security-on flag, has been lifted, for certain device`s nand partitions.
so, you now have rights to write to those,
that`s what it means...
...and is enough to load and use, any custom rom
to your phone...
To revert to the state from before unlocking:
simply- in ADB ,with device connected and rebooted in to bootloader,
fastboot oem lock
the phone will then do its thing and that`s it- it is locked again.
For the record:
even if you wish to run RUU,
before it, you MUST relock bootloader,
otherwise RUU will always throw back an error...
I do not know about unlocking or rooting kits,
but in my opinion is best to do it manually,
then, at least you know what you`re doing,
and where it is failing- if so...
1. HTCdev- as easy as one can imagine
2. Flashing recovery of your choice via fastboot
3. Flashing superuser via newly installed recovery
..and that`d be all- it`s rooted...
...If you want to flash custom rom, after unlocking bootloader,
you do not even need to root your current system,,
just need CUSTOM RECOVERY- through which, you can- then
flash system that is rooted already.....
