SONY XPERIA NEO Posts on XDA
If it is, I am not certain if it can be re-locked again for the OTA update to proceed. Best bet would be to use the Sony's companion phone software under Windows and let that update it manually instead :. Its an ordinary apk appthat is somewhat, IMHO, misleading. I'll explain why in a minute. In general speaking, there is two partitions out of many, for the sake of the edit, I am specifically focusing on boot and recovery.
The general consensus is this, there's two partitions, boot and recovery, boot is what you know, is responsible for bringing up the system when the power key is pressed. Recovery on the other hand, is where you can do basic recovery, that is, clean the data and cache partition, and re-flash the stock ROM as indicated by the OEM. As for accepting OTA updates if bootloader is unlocked, there's some mechanism or checking going on in respect to the OTA zip file I'd guess for the presence of locked bootloader hence the warning I mentioned above.
Use the Sony PC Companion suite software for Windows if you express a desire to go with the official updates from Sony. So there you have it, a bit of knowledge and empowerment in understanding the nuances of Android when it comes to manufacturers. Yeah, I don't understand myself why the two are "merged" into one partition as a result, hence there will be the danger of messing up Xperia handsets.
What got me questioning about it was, why the IMHO, there really should be two partitions - boot and recovery, after all, if that's the case, it would make modding and customizing even easier but maybe due to whatever reasons Sony had, they decided to have that combined into one.
Samsung has definitely the two partitions but its not as easy as it sounds but that's a discussion for another time : HTC is the same as Samsung, Zte - which I have the Blade in my possession has the two hence its popular on modaco due to the ease of hacking and modd-ability.
In fact, you can actually still flash custom roms even with the bootloader locked - that was news to me but I'll leave this edited answer for now. I think there's a reason you're having a hard time finding information about how to relock the bootloader and install the OTA: according to this thread you might brick your phone with the OTA update.
Are there any unique features? I'd play it safe if I were you and just go with custom ROMs in the future as well, mixing it up doesn't seem to be a good idea. Here's some info on relocking the bootloader anyway, but I'd suggest you find and try some roms instead from the Xperia Neo V Android Development forum.
