I am getting the following error message FAILED (remote: root type is risk) when I try to relock the bootloader

fastboot oem relock ****************
...
FAILED (remote: root type is risk)
finished. total time: 0.970s


Before I got the error message I had done the following:
- flashed to stock recovery (phone is not rooted any more)
- factory reset


- Someone know how to resolve this issue?
- Could this be fixed by installing fresh and untouched complete firmware from huawei?
- If yes, some know which link to use for my device and version?

Model number: HUAWEI NXT-L09
Buld number: NXT-L09C432B152

All help is highly apprechiated.

Instead of factory resetting after flashing stock recovery, try reflashing stock rom using dload method. Then try relocking.

Does the dload method work when rooted?

Hi there, I would also like to go back to the out of the box state of my Mate 8, I have 1 problem though, I cant unroot it, the fully unroot function within the Super SU app always fails, can I flash the official firmware on top?

Thanks!

Check if twrp still exist. Also check for any system changes that you did.

dload the latest stock then factory reset and then relock

Hi @bluheart
The latest stock download you have linked to your posts at the bottom....can I update my NXT-L29 C900 B188 with it just using the dload method? or must i debrand first.

Flash latest stock firmware via TWRP and reboot into Huawei recovery and wipe and reboot. You will be on stock

The only way I got this relocking error sorted was:
1. remove root completely
2. flash stock recovery
3. dload stock rom
This process locks the boot loader automatically and it is "Locked" not "relocked"

GUYS!!! fIRST OF ALL, STOCK = FULL STOCK, include a CUST mod and OEMINFO.

You must flash it before you relock. It will help u, because I had same problem before. Now, it's FULL BACKED to stock.

You MUST use @somboons tool to change CUST and OEMINFO to the ROM you are wanting to use as stock. If this does not match dload will not lock your bootloader.
Read @somboons threads... it will work if you have all things correct...

Hi! I need to lock a bootloader of my Honor 8. Can you help me please?
I downloaded stock ROM FRD-L09C432B120. What next should I do?
What does "dload" mean? Thank you in advance!

    You have to use your original firmware and then relock
