What's that?
Default relocked bootloader confusion

I flash a new rom every couple o months and as things move on so quickly I feel like a noob every time i come back here. As I understand it there is no need to relock a bootloader, ever, but over on xda the google 4.3 rom thread tells that I need a relocked bootloader before updating firmware? I will also need a CID change (11111111). Relocking will also wipe the phone?

Are you flash a rom or running a RUU ?
if your just flashing a new rom theirs no re-locking needed. Running a RUU will fail if the bootloader is unlocked and your S-On. If your s-off your good to go for RUU or Rom flashing

I'm trying to flash Google Play 4.3 and it certainly isn't my first rom, I'm also S-off. Because its the Google Play I'll need to change my CID, and the thread recommends updating firmware. I'm wondering if I need to relock as playing with bootloaders is bricking territory.

your reading about the Full Conversion to Google Play ...it's not necessary/ or recommended. Just flash it like a rom and it works.

some folks are doing the full conversion because they wish the phone to recieve OTAs,and essentially "be" a GPE phone.

has clsa said,its not neccessary,and while its nothing that can be undone,its a pretty big commitment if you have a variant that requires a MID change.

easiest way is to simply flash the rom itself.

I am still confused. Mike in his post says you need to be relocked! He also says a bootloader upgrade is preferable but not essential for now and I just assumed that with it bein a GTE and that, it would need the new firmware and CID as I'm in the UK. Anyways I flashed the rom yesterday a jsa said and it very smooove and I'm not missing sense and stupid Blinkfeed at all.

Why you describe it as a commitment?

simply becasue if you do the full conversion,its changing alot of things,and more complex to recover to stock. expecially if you do a mid change,as you need to use the eng bootloader,wich is IMO a lil scary

if you just falsh the rom itself,restoring stock,or your previous rom,is as easy as restoring the bacup.
