U lose DRM for ever if BL is unlocked by official method. TrackID app willnot work.. this is what i have in my knowledge.
I never minded in unlocking it.. since i dont use it.

If you know what you are doing, then no problem at all.. so i unlocked BL officially.(no option,, manufactured 12w14)

If unlocked by unofficial method, then u can relock it.. search in the forum to gain more knowledge..

I unlocked my Neo V via this method, then it turned out that something with my motherboard was wrong, so I relocked it using an ftf fie, when updated via SEUS, sent it over to SE service and got my Neo V replaced for a brand new phone for free as it was unable to be repaired, so I think all is fine when You unlock it using this method. It is just the same as the official one from website, just a few clicks less

I don't understand one thing!
I think this flashes a Gb kernel!
Which is why people get Sony Ericsson logo!

But how?I wanna know that!

And Gb kernels don't work with Ics Rom which people try upon! And then people get a SE logo and fear that they've bricked it!

Better if you state
,to keep an Ics kernel or try it on GB fw directly !

OP Updated
If You want to relock Your bootloader flash an attached ftf via flashtool, then You can update via SEUS and Your phone is like a brand new, but without DRM files

Yes, it does flash the GB kernel which causes bootloops when flashed over ICS. Updated the OP, thanks for pointing this

Sorry Mate, but can't tell You that I found this program when I was looking for something that fixes 0% problem but noticed that it also unlocked the bootloader It's not my program, so can't make it flash any other kernel, I'm just sharing

If it says Bootloader unlock allowed=NO, then I think You can't unlock it. Still You can try, I don't think this program will do any harm to You, but still don't blame me if something goes wrong, do it on Your own responsibility
