    Back to stock and locked

    If a N1 is rooted, is there any way to put it back to stock and locked bootloader? Just curious. If there is no way to lock the bootloader that's fine, but if you just flash the stock ROM back, will you start to get OTA's again, or is it once the bootloader is unlocked it will not receive OTA's anymore...?

    No.

    As of this point, once the bootloader is unlocked, its PERMANENT.

    People over at XDA have been working on getting it relocked to factory settings, so eventuallyyyyyy they might be able to! But as of now, no.

    You can flash the stock rom back on, but I don't think you would get OTA updates.

    Since it emerged that HTC are fixing/replacing handsets with unlocked bootloaders, they've pretty much stopped caring about re-locking it.

    As for going back to stock it's very possible (just leaving the padlock on bootup), just head over to MoDaCo and grab a complete stock image, and you can go back to receiving OTA updates just fine.

    That's awesome... I'm loving my Cyanogen mod though... But I love tinkering with stuff, and know that eventually I will tinker it beyond my ability to fix it!!! So by then, unless i brick it, I can always flash a stock rom back.
