I am using a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and CWM as recovery. Even though I locked my bootloader after installing the recovery, I can flash Cyanogenmod 10 using CWM without any errors. Now I am wondering why this works?
When I unpack the Cyanogenmod 10
.zip on my computer, there's also a
boot.img, so I guess it also replaces the bootloader? Maybe when the bootloader is locked, this step is skipped (but no error shown) and the stock ROM bootloader is also OK?
This ends up in my final question: While it works, am I maybe missing a bootloader update when flashing Cyanogenmod while my bootloader is locked?
