The bootloader will still be locked but fastboot mode gives the option to fastboot boot.

    That's what i fear, but why neokragu wrote this at he end of his message:

    " If You dont like the ICS then you can revert back to the GB any time "

    maybe he could give me the solution ?

    If you flashed Chinese ICS 4.0.4 then you need to flash again with Chinese GB 2.3.7 sbf first

    Then you can able to flash your own 2.3.7 sbf

    Here is the download link for Chinese 2.3.7 sbf

    http://www.mediafire.com/?97hc4nsi7qlo00j

    Download link for Asian retail 2.3.7 it supports

    India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines & Singapore

    If you have your own GB sbf for you country you can flash it otherwise download the Asian retail 2.3.7

    http://www.droidevelopers.com/downloads/XT535/Blur_Version.1.5400003.1004.XT535.AsiaRetail.en.zip

    I successfully flashed my stock GB again by this method

    I thought rooting, upgrading and installing Google Apps with working Facelock support on XT535 should be much easier,
    so i bundled all needed Software wrote a little script to reduce the work done by User.

    Step 1: Download and install Software Package.
    The Package includes:
    -SUTLR_v1.8.2 , to patch the stock firmware to be able to be rooted
    -SuperOneClickv2.3.3 , for rooting GB stock firmware
    -RSDLite5.3.1 , to flash the ICS Image to your XT535
    -QtADB 0.8.1 , for an easy way to manage system files, send commands and other useful stuff

    Step 2: Rooting GB Stock Rom
    Download XT535 Patch and extract the two files in the same folder.
    Go to Settings menu enable USB Debugging und set Device to mass storage mode.
    Open SUT LR, click "Next", select "FXX_PR3_NV.xml", click "Next" and let SUT LR apply the Patch the Devie will reboot.
    After SUT LR is finished click "Finish", your Device is now ready to be rooted.
    Start SuperOneClickv2.3.3 and simply click root, after a few minutes your Device is rooted.

    Step 3: Download and flash ICS Rom for XT535
    Download and extract ICS Rom for XT535.
    Shut down your Device and start it by pressing "VOLUME UP" an "POWER" together,
    you should be in "MBM Flash-mode" now.
    Open RSD Lite, select "TBPI-228E-0-7009-A04_Signed.sbf" by clicking "...", connect Device to USB and press "Start".
    Don't worry if it hangs at 84% for a while, thats normal.
    After its finished and the Device is rebooted should change language to English and close RSD Lite :)

    Step 4: Rooting ICS and installing busybox and Google Apps with Faceunlock support.
    Go to Settings menu enable USB Debugging und set Device to mass storage mode.
    Open SUT LR, click "Next", select "FXX_PR3_NV.xml", click "Next" and let SUT LR apply the Patch the Devie will reboot.
    After SUT LR is finished click "Finish".
    Download and extract Root and Gapps Installer XT535 ICS.
    Now just open "Install.bat" and press a key when promted to.
    The Device should restart 3 times, after that you should be able able to use all Google features and root access.

    Hope the manuel helpep a bit :
