    I wonder if that would change the bootloader.

    nope, it won't work. once the bootloader is unlocked there's no going back. HTC/Google can tell because a there's a picture of an ulocked lock on the boot screen.

    no problem. Google made it very easy for the adventurous users to unlock the bootloader and root the device. there's a full-screen message warning users that unlocking the bootloader will void your warranty and, once you unlock it, it stays unlocked. no one at xda has been able reverse the process.

    Its unfortunate that it is that way. I would think if they make it as open as it is, they would allow for you to root and 'un-root' your phone...but I guess that would make it difficult for the warranty process.

    root and unroot is not the issue; it's the unlocked bootloader. if you flash a newly released ROM update from Google, your phone will return to it's unrooted state (but you can root again). i view root access as the same as having Administrator access on a Windows PC.

    Sorry...I was referring to the unlocked bootloader. But it makes sense.

    Isnt there a way to put the original ROM back on?
    the bootloader is unlocked though, it shows the unlocked symbol so I dunno how to reverse that
    Has anyone tried fastboot oem lock? It's a valid command, I just don't know if it works.
