sorry for the late reply,ive had a fair amount on my plate lately and havent made my usual rounds in a couple days
the typical response to fastboot oem lock
when the phone sees everything as it should(stock recovery,kernel and rom) is:
... INFOLock successfully...
FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))
finished. total time: 0.154s
its been sooooooo long since ive locked a bootloader while still s on,but i believe your "unknown error" is typical of relocking when having a custom recovery,rom,etc. on the phone.
the rest of what you described,is definately normal,and you likely noticed the security warning
at the top of the bootloader screen.
when the phone finds custom software it wont let you boot to the OS,recovery etc,exactly as you said. the phone stays this way until you re-unlock,or run an official,signed ruu.
so i dont think youve anything to worry about at all. as clsA said,enjoy your newly rooted phone,and holler if you have any more questions
