Quick question, does this actually lock the device or does it simply change the unlock flag? If it does lock it, what it's the best way to unlock again?

Best is to rewrite the flag - there are 2 threads - one for remowing the tampered flag and second for locking the bootloader.
Once you are s-off you can lock and unlock the bootloader how many times you want using simple commands.

Thanks for the guide. I'm on S-ON so I first decided to try HTC CHAT Support and they activated my 100gb in like 5 mins using an email link which was so helpful. I'm sure I'll get round to testing what you've detailed sooner or later.

Thanks for clarifying, I'm already s-off and it works perfectly.

I tried HTC Chat and received an email link that sent me to Google but it claimed I already received the storage. re-lock was the only way to get it.

Just got my link from HTC support. No need to modify my unlocked bootloader, s-off phone.
Thanks for the guide though. Was about to go with it if HTC had not given me a link.

Edit: bootloader relock nesessary. it did not work with unlocked bootloader.

Wink Code redeemed before unlocking
I redeemed the code before unlocked and had no trouble, it gave me error after I installed the first custom rom but the space was already available on my google drive.

I just used tunnelbear (just to make sure no glitches) to log into the HTC support chat app on the US HTC site from Taiwan, told the guy I couldn't get the upgrade. We chatted about my christmas present (and Oppo 105D) and I simply gave him my IMEI, and an old landline # from our Palm Beach condo and I got the email with 100GB. He never asked about unlocked bootloaders.

worked great - even without going back to stock. I am on ARHD 22.1 and stayed there. I only followed the steps to remove the "tampered", locked again the bootloader, uninstalled the google drive app and .... bang - redeemed the 100 GB
Thx for this great tutorial

Thumbs up Worked Like a Charm
When I obtained S-OFF I cleared the TAMPERED LOGO there and then, but left my boot loader unlocked.

Followed your guide and locked my bootloader and was able to get my 100 GB! Currently on 125 GB NOW!

I'm on 5.0.1 GPE Rooted with the SD write mod applied.

Thanks!
