What happens if I unlock the bootloader?

    I mean, what "bad" things can happen afterwards? Are there any limitations then? I heared, that Netflix is only streaming 480p after unlocking the bootloader. Should I do it? I would really like to root my op6 but I don't want any limitations as I said...

    Unlocking your bootloader will render your drm keys unreadible, so yes, Netflix will not allow HD, and I think you can't install it on a device with an unlocked bootloader anyways. Besides that, every time you want to update your OS, you will have to flash the entire zip.

    Also, just to add:
    I'm not sure if relocking the bootloader will change L3 back to L1 again, but it 99% should.
