Right now I'm using Beanstalk ROM but I want to go back to stock due to battery issues but I can't use flashmode anymore.

If I flashed a stock based ROM will it void warranty in DE

You already invalidated your warranty when you unlocked your bootloader.

Unlocking bootloader doesn't void warranty in EU and I can restore the DRM keys

That's an interesting page. Thanks. It's useful to me, as the UK actually is part of the European Union and has been since 1973.

I have to ask, though, if you're already aware of this stuff, then why are you asking here?

The thing is, Sony would probably argue that it's overridden by the fact that you agreed at least 3 times that unlocking your bootloader may invalidate your warranty during the process of retrieving the unlock key from their website. Even though statutory rights cannot be overridden in this way, that hasn't stopped warranties being denied for no good reason before. This is a moot point though, as long as you restore your TA partition before taking your phone for warranty repairs.

What happens if I flashed a stock based ROM and relocked the bootloader and tried to install an OTA update from Sony

The OTA will almost certainly fail, as most OTA updates perform a check to see if /system has been modified in any way. If this check fails, then the OTA update will not go ahead.
