    My phone is currently un-locked but not rooted. When the ICS OTA becomes available, will I have to re-lock before downloading it? Thanks.

    Since root users need to revert to stock to install the updated radios in the OTA. It would seem to me, you'll have to be locked and fully stock to install the OTA. It's never worked for me in the past unless I locked it down, again.

    Ok thanks. I unlocked it using HTCDev so do I go back through that process to re-lock or is there a simplyier way to re-lock. Damn I hate being so stupid on this stuff.

    Yeah, that's your safest option, just head back over there when the time comes. Your not dumb to ask questions. I can't tell you how many times I've been stupid enough to do something w/ out inquiring while rooted and found myself stuck or "soft" bricked. Dunce cap is often found atop my noggin and fits way to snug, occasionally.

    just out of curiosity, did you ever try to install an older radio?

    No, I wouldn't knowingly put myself in a position, forced to do that. That sounds like it could be problematic for locked users b/c the firmware will update along w/ the upgrade. That sounds like a hassle to go through just to revert radios. I'm sticking w/ a custom rom until after I see the OTA get pushed to avoid any headaches and hear a consensus on it. Verizon could very well add something that will break root in the ICS update. They just did it to the DX. So I wouldn't put it past them. I'll lay low till the coast is clear.

    What would be involved with relocking? I have not unlocked yet, but read the how-tos several times on how to do it with htcdev.

    Open a command prompt and type some actions, it's pretty much, as simple as that. Depending on what you did on your phone once unlocked. If you did not root, your relocked and good to go.

    Now what about if you are running a custom rom?

    It's the same thing no matter how you are. If you kept your folder intact from when you unlocked and rooted, everything is a piece of cake, you should still have your custom recovery, your unlock code, adb, etc.

    So the process for getting an over the air update, is

    Run a stock RUU, lock, get update, redo everything.

    For the last leaked firmware it was.

    Lock, run leaked ruu from bootloader, unlock, install recovery, and done.

    Scrossler has more in depth instructions for both if you want the full instructions.

    Here is his site on getting the leak from a rooted state

    [HOW TO] Prepare for CleanROM 4.0 Update

    I'm not gonna write all this stuff back out, when it's already out there. XDA is your friend when it comes to this stuff. Read those threads over there, there is a ton of info.

    No one really answered, so for the benefit of those using the Android SDK and fastboot / adb, just boot to fastboot, and type the command fastboot oem lock in the terminal window. The phone will reboot to fastboot with "** RELOCKED **" annunciated at the top.
