    Hi all have a few things to throw out here. First I'll start out by saying the l70's a pretty decent device for the price. I'm rooted stock debloated with stock kernal running l70 mod. O.k. so it's said you must have an unlocked boot loader for cwm and flashing kernels and whatnot, and yes I know all the risks, bricks, boot loops etc. Well i've yet to unlock mine and have done everything your not supposed to do and have had not one problem. So my question is, is my boot loader really locked? It doesn't seem to be, and even if I did/do mess up my phone it's no issue giving the price, I'll get another or fix it. Any ideas why I've not had issues guys let me know what you think.

    All an unlocked boot loader does is allow unauthorized firmware to be loaded, the reason you have no problems? You haven't messed any important system stuff up. I do recommend unlocking and flashing cwm so you have a backup tho, so if you do brick you don't have to buy a new one just restore the backup
