    I know I shouldn't ask that here, but I need an really quick answer and no one has answered that question on xda yet. So:

    I got a P9 lite and I want to root it. You have to unlock the bootloader to do so, and if you do that, the bootloader will show as unlocked. My question is, if the bootloader is relocked, will it really be locked and not relocked or something? And does the phone still have warranty if you lock the bootloader again?

    Cheers

    You can not relock the bootloader after you modify the boot image to root it.

    I believe on the P9 you can't get locked status again on the boot loader. It's doubtful but there may be an exploit to get engineer access to the boot loader. On my HTC One I can set the boot loader to locked but it took a long time to get an exploit for engineer access.
