first off... lots of things in life that are worth having are not easy
on to your question. what is your question,exactly?
if the question is simply: "can i relock if i want to unroot?" then the answer is yes. you can relock the bootloader at any time,tho you do not need to relock it to "unroot". once you have submitted your identifier token to htc and gotten your unlock code,you can use that same unlock code to unlock your bootloader as often as you want to.
however,if your question really
is: "can i relock so vzw doesnt know that i rooted if i have to return my phone?" then the answer is no. if youve looked at hboot screen,youll see that it is locked
. once you unlock it,it is unlocked
once you relock it,it is relocked
. never again will it simply say locked
as it does now. once youve unlocked,anyone at vzw or htc can
check your hboot screen and see that you have at some point unlocked your bootloader. wether or not they will,and it will matter,is hard to say.
i know reading htc devs directions and the various guides are a little confusing. however, break it down into its basic steps,and its not as overwhelming,none of the steps are really that hard once you jump in a do them:
2)flash a recovery(temp or permanent)
3)flash superuser in recovery
if being stock locked
and having a factory warranty is important to you,may want to hold off on rooting. if you have 3rd party insurance and decide that the benefits are worth risking the factory warranty(not saying it will. just that i cant say it wont
) then read thru the noob friendly guide and post up if you have further questions
