As I already mentioned a week or two ago, there's unlock key in TA Misc after BL unlock.
This file removes the key, therefore relocks the bootloader.

Flash with FlashTool.

You still can't get DRM back. It's gone from the phone!

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/g1b5j7...bootloader.ftf

Feel free to donate if this helped you

Update:
If you unlocked your phone with SEtool/Omnius - any testpoint unlock solution - YOU CAN NOT RELOCK BOOTLOADER! IT'S PATCHED SO IT APPEARS LOCKED TO SE, BUT ACCEPTS UNSIGNED IMAGES VIA FASTBOOT! SO STOP ASKING ABOUT IT, AND STOP TRYING.
Enjoy

Yes, this flash just removes the newly created key which appeared after unlock. Have you tried it? If you're going to, report the result.

I have not tried it but how could you possibly know after completion that bootloader is locked?

try to boot recovery, fastboot boot recovery.img
or flash rooted system.img. if it fails, then bootloader is locked.

and if you get it to relock the BL.. try liking a track in media player.. see if it works.. (suspect it might not, cos the DRM is still missing but worth a try..)
