Does unlocking bootloader will still Remove Widevine certification? Like what happened on OnePlus 7 Pro?

Yes, I checked Netflix, after unlock it's L3. AFAIK, there is no way to preserve the key and I never saw a service/app where L1 and HD weren't linked.

AFAIK, if you backup original boot.img and restore it, then relock bootloader, you'll regain Widevine L1. Can someone confirm this?

As long as you don't touch persist partition, you will always get L1 back after locking the bootloader.(Of course, you have to restore back to stock in order to pass boot signature when locking)

Has anybody tried to use a patched Netflix apk with a rooted OP 8 Pro and check whether Netflix can go in HD and so L1 Widevine?
