Default what will cwm backup for me?

I have a question about what will the cwm backup?

if I backup a system with locked bootloader,will the bootloader relock after I restore the system from an unlocked bootloader system?

which content will cwm backup?(include kernel?)

"Before we tell you how awesome Nandroid backup is, lets look at what it means. Nandroid backup is a complete backup of your phone. When we say complete, it means everything on your phone – your apps, data, your current ROM and even the kernel. It is like creating a full system image of your phone that can be restored later, when required."

Taken from How to Perform a Nandroid Backup and Restore it to your Android Device


As for the bootloader:

"There is currently no method of returning to an entirely locked state. You can use fastboot to lock the bootloader, but it will always read Re-Locked, rather than locked. Don't say you weren't warned."

Taken from XDA Wiki

This page refers to HTC One X, but it may be device specific... what's your Android phone model?


EDIT: On Sony mobiles you can't also revert the process...

"Also note that there is no turning back once you have unlocked the boot loader. You will not be able to revert the phone to a locked or original state if you unlock it. In addition, if you brick the phone, it is your own responsibility."

Nandroid is a perfect backup tool !! esp. for those who crave to try new ROMs. I'm on Defy and every week, I try a new build of ICS ROM from various people. All I need to do is to backup my MIUI 2.4.20 ROM and flash the new ROM. If the new ROM has problems, it hardly takes 10 min to get my phone to its previous state !!

Hit Thanks if it helps !
