Almost true but when you flash ruu after relocking bootloader it also flashes hboot again hence it returns to normal locked status not relocked. Warranty still in tact. Warranty only void if returned in unlocked or relocked state. Once ruu flash is successful all is back to normal.

When unlocking the bootloder HTC gets the IMEI of the phone so even if you relock it and/or flash a RUU they will still know that you bootloader was unlocked.
If you go the HTCdev way to unlock your bootloader your waranty is gone for ever.

Lol no its not mate. Once relocked you can still claim warranty as I've done with XL and others with various issues. No known issues with warranty have been posted after relocking and flashing stock ruu. HTC encourages unlocking bootloader and says that it MAY void warranty. Word being MAY!

If you say so.
Then please tell HTC they should repair my brothers Sensation under warranty and not let him pay for flashing new software after he bricked it.

This is one x mate lol. I assume your brother flashed s-off and super cid on his device? These contributing factors may have led to them not honor warranty. As there is no such solutions so one x or XL I know of a few people who have returned under warranty after relock. Remember if they can prove that it was bricked by human error that void warranty not just as bootloader was relocked.

No, it got bricked while he unlocked the bootloader. After unlock was finished the phone was dead. No s-off, no super CID and no custom recovery were flashed.
In the e-mail HTC sent him they said that his warranty for software problems is gone and only if there is something wrong with hardware they will repair it under warranty.
We live in Austria, maybe the rules for the unlocking tool are different in other countrys.

Does this wipe data when unlocking and rooting or just replace the kernel?
