You can't use fastboot to soft-boot or flash anything without having an unlocked bootloader.

So, if you had to restore back to stock, etc., you'd have to unlock.

But you should be able to do most root-y things just fine .

At least this way, you'll be able to make Titanium Backups and/or a Nandroid backup of your current setup, save that stuff off to your PC or such. Then, when / if you ever to have to unlock, you're just a restore away from being back in the state you were when you made the restore .

Cheers!
