I don't think you understand. There are some devices where you cannot unlock the bootloader at all, even if you wanted to, therefore that guide is no use to people that own those devices.

I'm not asking for help by the way. I have an unlockable bootloader and am fully aware of how to root.

LOL indeed.

Please people read and understand what I was responding to before quoting me and trying to be clever again. Posting a guide that requires unlocking then relocking the bootloader is not a method of rooting with a locked bootloader for the reasons in the post of mine that you quoted without reading properly.

We all know that you can downgrade to gain root and flash any stock based rom that you want. You will see that I already suggested it in the second post of this thread.
