    While this is correct for what you were trying to do earlier in this thread. I think you could've avoided having to send the device back to HTC if you'd have unlocked the bootloader prior to mucking around installing new ROMs. The reason? Because even if something doesn't go smoothly, like your N install, since it's a Nexus device you can often find ways via fastboot/adb to recover from them on your own.

    Even if you only *anticipate* the possibility of unlocking the bootloader, you should enable the "Allow OEM Unlocking" option in Developers Options. Otherwise, should you find yourself stuck again, you'll likely have to send it back. Again.

    Without this option enabled, you won't be able to unlock the bootloader if the device will no longer boot to the ROM. I've not heard that there are any security consequences with enabling it.

    It's your tablet, so it's your call...

    Good luck either way!

    cheers,
    john
