I have read the Guides on this forum regarding rooting the phone and custom recoveries. I have rooted my Tab using KINGROOT apk available on xda-developers. After reading on the Guide that the process of rooting may also install custom recovery I have once again read the thread of KINGROOT and it says that only desktop version of KINGROOT installs the recovery if required but since I have installed apk on my Tab for root it does not.
Now coming to my question. Does the process of installing custom recovery also unlocks the bootloader?
Is there any other way to unlock the bootloader if not can I revert back to stock recovery keeping the bootloader unlocked?
