Hello, just a quick question. I had my One rooted, s-off, and unlocked when my microphone went. So I relocked, s-on, and flashed an RUU via http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2475216. Just making sure that before I pack it in the box, there is nothing else that could trip the people at Verizon that I had messed with my phone. I took the OTAs up to 4.3. I'm just paranoid about info not matching up such as the baseband version and build number etc. Thanks

Does the bootloader say locked or relocked? Locked is good relocked not so much. Other than that you should be fine. Ruu's wipe everything and install it all fresh, including the firmware (baseband, hboot, recovery, etc), so everything will match up.

In the bootloader I have "Locked" also s-on. I noticed though with the refurbished phone I received (not happy about having to get refurbished but thats besides the point) the CID number shows in the bootloader screen whereas on my original phone it is not displayed. Not sure if I even need to be this worried, but I'm just paranoid. Thanks

Are both phones on the same hboot version? I dont remember if it showed in older hboots or not. Either way i wouldn't worry, locked and s-on is all you need.

No they weren't. I'm just going to stop worrying too much about it. Thanks

If i send my phone back to verizon do i have to be on the original ROM? i understand that i need to lock my bootloader and have s-on, but what about the software itself?

It can be on stock rom/firmware of any version. Just no custom roms or anything.

Just to confirm, if I have a phone that is S-OFF, unlocked:

1. Do I need to lock the bootloader before flashing an RUU?

2. Does flashing an RUU revert the phone to S-ON?

3. Does anything special otherwise need to be done to the phone prior to flashing the RUU?

Thanks so much in advance.

I also have to return a phone to VZW due to a hardware issue (the autofocus issue finally too much for me to bear).

You only need to relock the bootloader if using a signed ruu. A decrypted ruu does not need it locked.

Flashing an ruu will not remove s-off or relock the bootloader. You can do it before or after, but i sugest after, that way if something goes wrong durring the ruu, you still have options.

Once you do the ruu you will be stock. So the only thing you would have to do is relock and go s-on.

Fantastically clear, Clumsco, thanks! Three quick additional questions

1. is there any advantage to flashing the signed RUU, and adding danger by locking the bootloader beforehand? In your links below your signature is a path to both decrypted and signed versions of the latest RUUs. So I thought to ask before going with one or the other. If there is no advantage then I guess the decrypted version would be the safer bet, right?

2. Is there a danger that locking after the RUU will result in a "relocked" versus the desired "Locked" status?

3. Will the RUU flash wipe my /sdcard area? If so I'll back everything up before embarking on this.

I VERY much appreciate the help. I ran rumrunner several months back and have forgotten a lot of the nuances. Thanks for the quick primer!
