I have it posted on my site and at a mirror. Can't really control how fast either one of them are, so I guess you'll just have to deal with it if you really need it now.

Can this be used to return to factory settings or to unbrick after unlocking the bootloader

I was wondering if this would relock the boot loader too

From what I was told in IRC, this will relock your bootloader. I am going to extract the files and re-tar them in a package that will restore you to stock but retain the unlocked bootloader then, just haven't gotten to it yet.

This is an invaluable tool. Thanks!

Guys, don't forget about Triangle Away if you've tripped your flash counter. It doesn't look like it's been updated for the I605 yet but we've only been unlocked for a couple days. My guess is it'll soon be updated if it doesn't work already.

Its always good to have a backup plan in case you need or want or must restore to stock then start over again via ODIN.

I just posted an alternate restore package in the OP. It will return you to stock but retain the unlocked bootloader. This would be if you FUBAR'd something and want to go back to stock, but not have to worry about unlocking again.

Has anyone tried this and verified if it does re-lock the boot loader?

I'm asking because I had to take my Galaxy Nexus to Verizon for a warranty replacement, and would never have been able to do that if I didn't have a method of locking the bootloader, un-rooting, and removing all traces of my shenanigans.

So if I could get an absolute "Yes this locks the bootloader." from someone, I will be comfy enough to proceed.

Thanks!

(Or if there's another method of re-locking that I haven't been able to find, could someone tell me? I just want something chambered if/when I have to take this phone to Verizon.)

The easiest way to find out if it works is to have someone unlocked flash it, then attempt to flash a custom boot.img or recovery.img via Odin. A good test item would be the last Odin package that is flashed via the unlock process. If the phone still accepts the full package, it is still unlocked.

In my opinion though, if the flash counter is at 0, and the other checks all say factory or original firmware/software, then Verizon really has no way to tell if the bootloader is unlocked or not.
