Prompt [Q] How to Unlock Relocked Bootloader?

Hi there guys, I rooted my HTC One a couple of months ago. But now I want to go back to stock. So I watched this tutorial video on how to unroot my HTC One and got to the part where I'm supposed to relock my bootloader.

I had to stop the process because the application he recommended wouldn't run on my Windows 7.

So, I'm stuck with a relocked bootloader and S-on.

I thought about converting my device to Google Play Ed but realized that I may not have the right skills for that just yet so now, I just want to go back to stock 4.3 but when I selected Recovery, it showed "***Security Warning***" right below "***Tampered***" and "***Relocked***".

After 2 restarts it disappeared but I'm scared that it might appear again.

I really want to just go back to stock. I've looked in the past threads and didn't find a solution on how to unroot specifically for relocked bootloaders.

I would really appreciate some help please.

Did you use rumrunner to s-off? Are you using a patched/modified hboot? Whatever method you used to s-off, you have to use the reverse of that, or you could brick your device. The answer to your question lies in the method you used to s-off your device.

I'm not saying this is going to help you, but I did a simple google search when I did this, and this helped me:

http://androidforums.com/internation...ml#post5918438
Current:
AT&T HTC One M7
Bootloader Unlocked, Rooted, S-off (Rumrunner)
Insert Coin Sixth Sense v2.3.1
ElementalX Kernel

Past: HTC One X, HTC Inspire 4G, HTC Pure, Samsung Blackjack II, Motorola V3xx, Moto V3i, Moto V3, and a whole bunch more...

It says it's S-ON though.. Do I Make it S-OFF first then unroot it? I thought it would be S-OFF because I rooted it. Should i try rumrunner to turn it to S-OFF?

Hi I went back to stock rom 4.3 with sense 5 but still ROOTED tho. If you want I will give you a link for that rom. just download it and use recovery to install that rom, but have to wipe and clean cache, system, data before installing zip file
