Default [Q] bootloader unlock = yes and bootloader unlock allowed = yes are same?

so it is the same things or bootloader unlock = yes means your BL is unlocked.
and bootloader unlock allowed = yes mean you can unlock your bootloader.
im confused and i tried to unlock my bootloader, all data get wiped but i don't know whether its unlocked or not?
in service menu bootloader status show bootloader unlock = yes.
i also checked on my friends xperia ray, on his mobile it showing bootloader unlock allowed = yes.

It's pretty literal, except there's a bit of wrong grammar...

Bootloader unlock allowed: Yes - This means the bootloader is not unlocked but you are allowed to unlock the bootloader.

Bootloader unlock: Yes - This means the bootloader is unlocked.

Bootloader unlock allowed: No - This means the bootloader is not unlocked and you cannot unlock the bootloader.

then how can i extract boot image- Download boot image,start Flashtool,click on the flashlight and select Fastbootmod.Shutdown your phone,press and hold Vol+ key and connect usb cable to your phone(led light will turn blue light).Now from flashtool chose "Select kernel to flash" and flash boot.img fille who you want.[COLOR="Silver"]
