    Is there anyway to relock a bootloader on lg stylo h631 running 6.0 after its been unlocked? It has never been rooted just unlocked bootloader.

    Hey there

    Welcome to AF :)

    Well according to me there's a way to relock ,

    You'll need to use fastboot, which is provided in the CF-Auto-Root zip file, and also available standalone and packaged with lots of other software. It's part of the Android SDK Tools / Platform Tools, which can be installed on Windows, OSX, or Linux.

    Note: If you've installed a custom ROM or kernel on top of rooting, you'll want to flash the necessary stock versions with fastboot or possibly through TWRP/ClockWorkMod Recovery.

    In order to re-lock the bootloader:

    Reboot your phone to Bootloader ModeConnect the USB Cable to your computer.Open a Command Prompt (Terminal on Linux or OSX)Navigate to the platform-tools directory inside the unzipped CF-Auto-Root directory.

    Use the following command, depending on your OS.

    Linux: ./fastboot-linux oem lockOSX: ./fastboot-mac oem lock
    "oem lock"

    One thing to note here : once bootloader is unlocked ,it can be easily unlocked back by typing the command : " oem unlock-go"

    But still after relock, your warranty remains void :)

    No , Once your phone is unlocked, it will no longer be covered by LG warranty :(

    Its not a.warranty claim. I thought there was a difference in warranty claim and a device protection claim where i pay the deductible and get a refurbished one.

    This thread here by LG explains everything about of unlocked bootloader ,even according to them there is not turning back ( means bootloader cannot be relocked )


    Yeah so the answer is No ,sorry for the above answer ,but yeah it does lock the bootloader but it's just a virtual lock( not really locked like it was earlier )
