Restore to store for warranty?

Hi guys, just wondering if I unlock bootloader and flash roms on the legend, htcdev says you will void your warranty. But is there a way to restore it to factory conditions (relock bootloader etc) and make it look like it's been stock all along, if it does need a warranty repair/replacement?

Thanks in advance.

Actually no sorry I don't think that will be the case, once u update to hboot 1.02 you won't be able to downgrade again to any hboot lower unless there's a smart cookie able to hack the flasher to force flash it, besides, when you sent off your unique ID token to HTC so you can get the unlock binary, they will now have it on record you unlocked your phone and agreed to void your warranty.

Nup, once boot loader is unlocked your warranty has been voided and there is no current method to undo it.

Ok thanks everyone. As it's not my phone I don't know if I should do it anymore just for the trackpad wake feature. Thanks for answering.

Also, ranger, is zeubea's ics beta 0 stable enough for everyday use?

Not true. You can downgrade to1.01 without any trouble. Just use the hack4legend to change the misc version and downgrade all the way to Eclair. After that just download OTAs up to the latest Froyo and your perfectly stock with S-ON, HBOOT 1.01 and no signs of you unlocking anything.

This is good information to know, this the first I've heard of this method that allows hboot downgrade, there are other much more advanced members of xda than me, that also believe hboot downgrade can't be done, excellent news. :thumbup:

Well u can't downgrade it to 0.43 to S-OFF with alpharev or something.
It seams like 1.02 is kinda different and can be flushed backwards.

Tested this myself. I've had to restore my Legend before selling it
