Is there no easy way to relock the bootloader without using the MSM Tool (which I've never done)? I relocked it in the normal way, fastboot oem lock, but that resulted in a "device is corrupt and will not boot" error. I unlocked it and it's fine, but... I want to re-lock it.

On OOS? Run a full local upgrade to whatever your current version is and try again

Yeah, it was just running stock firmware... Ok, so full local upgrade and try fastboot oem lock again?

Worth a try I guess, thanks!!!

The local update is running now, hope it works since the MSM Tool gives me a "failed to start" "because of a side by side configuration" error... lol. Sheesh, never experienced trouble relocking a device before.

Try a downgrade rom. This will wipe all in your phone & then re-lock.
The rom must be for your model/region.

Ok... this is resolved, even if I don't know how. I literally just tried it a third time and it worked. *shrug*

Thanks to those that responded.
