Default Return to stock

Hi

I rooted with the Geohot make it rain method and then backed up TA before unlocking boot loader. I currently have Doomkernel.

To restore to stock, is there a flashable stock zip somewhere for .402

Then is it a case of restoring TA (which relocks BL?) And then unroofing?

Thanks

Safest way:
  1. Factory reset the phone (on the phone)
  2. Flash a valid ftf
  3. Re-root
  4. Restore TA (BL will LOCK)
  5. Reflash the ftf if you want to lose root
.

Yes, you can download a image for your device and then flash it with the flash tool. It can also relock your bootloader.

NOPE

ftf will NOT relock the bootloader.

(OP wants the BL locked, not relocked too - only TA backup can do this)
