    HOX+, 4.2.2 sense5, CID O2___001

    If I unlock and root my phone and then backup the stock ROM with CWM etc, can I then restore the system, with the backup, and the bootloader will be relocked and phone unrooted ?

    In other words, if I restore from backup will the phone be like it was when I got it ?

    Want to be able to relock / unroot in case of future OTA updates.

    Thanks

    You would have to probably flash your carrier's stock RUU in order to fix this. Then you would have to remove all evidence including the info on your bootloader screen. It'll say something like "relocked" or "tampered" and that is how they know you messed with it. But why would you want to unroot and stuff if most roms have more support then the carrier's OTA updates? Either way, If you tell me your carrier I could help you. : )

    Carrier, as in CID number, is O2.

    Reason I want to be able to relock / unroot is in case of future OTA updates to 4.2.2, sense 5, which I doubt will happen.

    Which custom rom would you recommend for being close / identical to latest 4.2.2, sense 5 update ?
    Cheers

    Well, there is this one. I'm not sure if it works on the O2 verison. It just says its works on the ONE X+ except the AT&T version so I'm assuming it does. Otherwise I do not see much. There is one guy in this post in the way bottom of the comment section that says he got the update on o2. What do you want to do?

    I'm happy with the stock 4.2.2, sense5 update which I now have but just wanted to unlock and root to "experiment" and get rid of some "bloatware". I've done it with a Desire and Desire C recently and like the "freedom" it gives you.

    The main question was how to relock and unroot in case there are future OTA updates, which I won't get if phone is "tampered with".

    Thanks

    What superuser do you have? SuperSU?

    Oh I get it now! You are asking how to unroot and relock it just in case you decide to actually root and lock it. Ok things are clear now. It's easy really, the superuser app itself has it's own option for complete root removal. And returning to stock means you just flash your carrier's RUU.
