If you have a SHIP hboot, then unlock will allow you access to more fastboot commands. If you have an ENG hboot, then there isn't a need for unlock. With s-off, lock/unlock status can always be changed when necessary.

Thanks a lot it worked. Is there also a similar method to get rid of the **Tampered** badge?

This will be reset when you flash a new hboot.

So help me understand this... I still am on the stock SHIP HBOOT and I have the tampered and unlocked badge with s-off. If I want I can use the lock zip and it will lock my bootloader and clear the badges but I will be able to continue to flash and mod my phone with radios and what not as i am now? sorry if this sounds repetitive just trying to get a good understanding before i flash anything...

Stock, locked hboot with s-off: not all fastboot commands will be available (mostly radio related), but you can still flash roms etc as normal.

Stock, unlocked hboot with s-off: bootloader will allow more fastboot commands, but still not as much as an engineering hboot.

ENG hboot, unlocked or locked, with s-off: all fastboot commands are available, and there's nothing it will prevent you from doing. ENG hboot doesn't care about locked or unlocked status.

With s-off, the locked/unlocked status can be changed any time if you change your mind. The tampered flag will be reset if you flash another hboot.

I flashed to the ENG hboot then back to the ship hboot and my **tampered** flag came back when I flashed back to the ship hboot. Do I have to be locked for it to stay gone?

I think the **tampered** flag also reflects you having a custom recovery.. if you flashed the stock recovery that *should* go away.. but with stock recovery you can't do anything fun

That's a new one on me. Never seen tampered come back while s off. Maybe it has something to.do with the eng signed hboot. Flash an older ship hboot,then back to the current one.

If that doesn't work,make a backup,run an ruu,reinstall recovery,restore backup.

Every s off phone I own is unlocked and not tampered,so unless DNA is different you don't need to be locked or stock recovery to keep it gone.

Just make sure you understand that in your quest for a tamper free hboot,that your phone will not function without a bootloader. As such,changing them out will always carry a degree of risk,no matter how careful you are. I'm not an advocate of messing with bootloaders or radios for no real reason.

Yeah, I don't care that much about the tampered tag. Just noticed that it came back.
