    Default should i relock my bootloader

    Hi I rooted my phone and installed a custom Rom, I then decided to go back to stock long story short it all got messed up took me hours to get my phone working again, I'm now on stock with an unlocked bootloader and don't want to relock if there is a chance it will send my phone haywire, is it doing any harm being unlocked? Thanks

    no, being unlocked wont hurt anything. But relocking it shouldn't hurt it either.

    If it were me, I would keep it unlocked for the slight chance you want to run a custom rom in the future

    Cool thanks I think I will leave it as it is then, as long as it doesn't affect any ota updates that was my main concern

    if you accept an OTA, it'll relock the bootloader anyways... then you'll have to wait for another exploit to unlock it in the future
