Default I cannot relock my bootloader anymore.

Soooo I saw this guide: Guide - Get s-off on 1.31 HTC One (Sprint) Update: - xda-developers, and I thought I'd try to s-off on the current bootloader (1.55), not knowing at the time that the exploit was patched. Well, it didn't work, to say the least. In one last attempt I tried to relock.

And that's when the weirdness began. I got a big fat "FAILED: error unknown" in the command prompt when I issued the command to relock. The bootloader said it was relocked, though. When I would try to reboot to the OS, it would go straight to the bootloader. When I would try to go to recovery, it would go straight to the bootloader. So I unlocked, and all was back to normal. I tried relocking again and the same results occured.

I was running this rom at the time. Not sure if that matters, or if I need to be on straight stock to do this. I haven't rooted an HTC phone in a long time and I rooted this phone the other day. The phone IS running normally, except for Facebook crashing every so often.

I guess the main point is: should I worry? Should I leave stuff alone and stop experimenting? Should I fix this?

Hi .. sorry for not answering sooner
Theirs no real point in relocking the bootloader now, you already discovered that s-off is not possible after taking the OTA update. Just flash roms and enjoy your newly rooted One.

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
