Default [Tutorial] Relock Xperia Z bootloader

Good day my friends

I will show you how to relock the bootloader of XZ

Flashtool version used: flashtool-0.9.10.2beta

Download the latest Flashtool ( found in OG android development forum)
Install the Flashtool drivers found in the drivers folder
Connect phone in Flash-mode (phone shut down, volume down + power)
Press the BLU button
Press the relock option
Put a stock .tft firmware in the Flashtool firmwares folder (this is required!!)
Flash the firmware (this is required!!)
Done

You will now have a locked stock xperia z

Extra info by Flashtool developer:

A litte explanation :about relocking / unlocking :
When relocking the device, I save the unlock code into custom\DEVICESERIAL\unlock.txt
If ever you relocked using another method than BLU from FT (with a custom ftf for example), then you must create this file by hand to be able to unlock the device again.
This file must contain the unlock code. One line only, no carriage return.

The OP describes more about relocking and then unlocking again.

Would this be enough for a warranty repair/replace? Or would, say, Amazon have access to a list of unlocked device IMEIs?

Just flashing stock firmware will not fix the "bootloader status: unknown"

I think the point is that flash tool was updated today. In the (flashtool) op it now tells you how to relock/unlock

Not really... There is no way currently available to RELOCK bootloader... What was updated was to fix the "bootloader unlocked: unknown" to "bootloader unlocked: yes"
