Default Motorola Defy help flashing!

Hey guys, Ive been reading the forums here for a good 2 years since my first android, but never got around to making an account until now, glad I did, and now I've got some questions.

I live in the USA and manually updated my Motorola Defy to 2.2.1 by flashing without rooting. This worked great for the past 2 months without any problems. But now the phone has to be returned to T-Mobile because the speaker stopped working.

I rooted the phone about 2 weeks ago, and while trying to unroot, I accidently unlocked the bootloader. (Go figure, while trying to unroot, I got even deeper into the OS )

So now when I try to reflash the stock 2.1 back, it gives me the black bootloader screen (USB connected, OK to transfer) and flashing fails every time. Is there any way to get rid of the bootloader and reflash to stock 2.1?

TLDR: Is there any way to relock the bootloader and flash 2.2 to 2.1?

And as my first post, I'm not sure if I have put this in the right area, so mods feel free to move this to where ever it should be. Thanks!

you didnt unlock the bootloader. you entered the bootloader. you cant unlock the defy bootloader. its fine send it back. super one click has the remove root button at the top. use that.
