correct. being unlocked
lets you use fastboot flash partition imagename.img
and fastboot boot imagename.img
,but only for boot,system and recovery,so their useage is pretty limited. you still cant fastboot flash a radio,hboot,splash screen etc.
its not a terribly big deal,you just need to install things in RUU mode,using the fastboot flash zip zipname.zip
command. so you can still do everything you could with an unlocked bootloader,you just have to go about it a bit differently.
alternately,beaups new method will possibly include a patched hboot,wich will let you fastboot flash all partitions(tho still not give you all the eng commands)
since its easy enuff to make it locked again,i keep mine unlocked. but it honestly doesnt matter much.
